The Sweet, Far Thing by Libba Bray

This was the last in a trilogy, that, IMO, was far too long. Everything in the book seemed important at the time, but it very much felt like it was taking far too long. I think it may have suffered from an overabundance of description.

I enjoyed them, but calling these YA is debatable. I felt that way after I read the first one and realized how dark it was. Torture and human sacrifice for teens? Even wrapped in a pretty Victoriana wrapper, is still torture and human sacrifice. I enjoyed these, but doubt I’ll read them again unless I need to for J.
