rebel angels.

This was even better than A Great And Terrible Beauty. Because I already knew the characters and was into the story, I picked it up and didn't want to put it down. It is much more fast paced than the first. What I really love about it is you never know which characters are "good" and which are "bad" until the end. And even then, Bray leaves plenty of room for these characters to sway in the next book. It's really about friendships & loyalty. You also get to know the backgrounds of the 4 main characters {Gemma, Felicity, Ann & Pippa}.

Here's a little bit about it. I won't post the full synopsis because it might give away parts of the first book.

Gemma Doyle is looking forward to a holiday {Christmas} from Spence Academy-- spending time with her friends in the city, attending balls in fancy gowns with plunging necklines, and dallying with the handsome Simon Middleton. Yet amid these distractions, her visions intensify-- visions of the three girls dressed in white, to whom something horrific has happened that only the realms can explain. Rebel Angels teems with Victorian thrills and chills that play out against the backdrop of 1895 London, a place of shadows and light... where inside great beauty can lie a rebel angel. {from the back of the book}

I loved it.
