The Sweet Far Thing, by Libba Bray (Delacorte Press, 2007)

With all the magical power of the mystical Realms at her fingertips, Gemma Doyle must struggle with the temptations to use it for her own ends, or share it among the numerous factions demanding her cooperation. Meanwhile, she and her friends must decide what to do with their lives, assuming they can challenge the roles society would force upon them. Questions are answered and futures resolved in this epic conclusion to a wonderfully-woven trilogy that injects magic and suspense into a Victorian setting. Libba Bray does a great job of balancing the mundane and the fantastic, and it’s almost a shame to see the story end.
