goodreads: Evie’s paranormal past keeps coming back to haunt her. A new director at the International Paranormal Containment Agency wants to drag her back to headquarters. The Dark Faerie Queen is torturing humans in her poisonous realm. And supernatural creatures keep insisting that Evie is the only one who can save them from a mysterious, perilous fate.
The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its fate rests solely in Evie’s hands.
So much for normal.
my take: I remember when I read Paranormalcy (for the first time!) and thought, “Holy cow! Kiersten White is a flippin’ genius! She is full of fun, originality, and bleeping humor!” After I finished Endlessly I realized, that one, my main assessment of White was indeed accurate (man, I’m good) and two, this girl has matured!
In a fitting ending to an awesome trilogy, White has left us with a last book that is to be savored and a conclusion that is both shocking and complete. I had no idea how everything would be tied up. One of my favorite heroines, Evie, is again full of life and spunk. She is older, wiser, and ready to do what is right, no matter what the costs. Fortunately for her, she has her friends who are always there to help fight what is good in the world for both the humans and paranormals. I just adore the world that White has created! It seems real, full of hope and worth saving.
Ohhh, Lend, how I adore thee… I just love Evie and Lend together!! They are what I hope my kids find in a relationship. (Yes, I am old!) But the great thing about Endlessly is that we get to see a different side of Reth! Boy, do I like him (and hate him)! He makes my skin crawl in some scenes and then makes me want to kiss him in others. No wonder Evie is so sarcastic and strong with him. She has to be! Jack is back too which I really thought added some insight into who exactly Jack is.
If you haven’t read this trilogy, you are missing out, I assure you. It really is one of my favorites with humor, sacrifice, love, thoughtful relationships, and a world that I wish I were part of. This was a bleeping fabulous ending to a bleeping quirky series that I am sad is over. But I am thrilled to see what Kiersten White writes about next. I am forever a fan of Evie and forever a fan of Kiersten White.
