Lush Historical Fantasy

A Great and Terrible Beauty (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy)A Great And Terrible Beauty  by Libba Bray weaves a  world of l ate 19th centuryEngland with a magical land in this entertaining YA fantasy.

Gemma Doyle is shipped away from her life in India when she is sixteen years old after her mother’s aparent suicide. She’s sent to a proper boarding school, one her mother went to as a girl. Gemma’s tormented by visions that often come true. And if she’s not mistaken, an Indian boy is following her. Is he sent to protect her or something more sinister?

The lush details bring this fantasy to life. I only wish this series had lasted more than three books.
