From the Publisher:
As Gemma, along with her friends from the Spence Academy, try to stop The Order, a mysterious group her late mother was once part of, from taking over the enchanted realms, she must sacrifice her friendships to discover her true destiny. Reprint.★ “A huge work of massive ambition.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred

It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy. Her mother murdered, her father alaudanum addict, Gemma has relied on an unsuspected strength and has discovered an ability to travel to an enchanted world called the realms, where dark magic runs wild. Despite certain peril, Gemma has bound the magic to herself and forged unlikely new alliances. Now, as Gemma approaches her London debut, the time has come to test these bonds.

The Order—the mysterious group her mother was once part of—is grappling for control of the realms, as is the Rakshana. Spence's burned East Wing is being rebuilt, but why now? Gemma and her friends see Pippa, but she is not the same. And their friendship faces its gravest trial as Gemma must decide once and for all what role she is meant for.

Annotation:
In the final book of the Gemma Doyle trilogy, Gemma is caught between the threatening demands of the Order, the Rakshana, and creatures of dubious trust in the realms while preparing for her debut into London society. With no one to trust, and unsure of how to handle the magical powers she alone possesses, Gemma must find her way to the truth that will keep her, along with her friends, safe from dangerous forces. Filled with late Victorian imagery, adventure, and scandal, THE SWEET FAR THING masterfully concludes this thrilling young adult fantasy trilogy. A 2007 Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book.
