Rebel Angels

Rebel Angels is by Libba Bray. The second book in the Gemma Doyle series. Gemma and her friends are headed to London for Christmas vacation. Gemma is looking forward to parties and gowns, and time with her father. The girls can't resist the lure of the realms though, there they relish the use of magic and the appearance of Pippa who appears to be uncorrupted by failing to cross over. Things in the realms however, are not as they appear. Kartik returns to tell Gemma that she must find the temple and bind the magic or beings from the realms will be able to affect the mortal world and those who have died will not be able to cross over. Gemma, Felicity, Ann, and Pippa set out to find the temple before Circe does and bind the magic. Gemma must also deal with her father's problems and a new found love interest. Everything and everyone is not as it appears however, and she must determine who is friend and who is foe. Fans of the first book will not be disappointed by the second.

Ratings: 8th grade - 8 out of 10 - AC (some mature thematic content).
