Kindly given by the publisher for an honest review
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.
Throughout the Paranormalcy series, Kiersten White’s writing has been sassy, fun and engaging, and Endlessly is no different. There was a palpable sense of urgency and pace following the whole story, with plenty of action, suspenseful chapter endings, mishaps and mayhem.
Evie is a great young protagonist. She has a well defined and distinct voice and personality, full of snarkiness, with and sarcasm. She is a strong but caring and compassionate young girl which means she has plenty of dilemmas throughout the series and in Endlessly. And of course after so many run-ins with the faeries, she will need to be really brave in this book in order to face the faeries in all their wrath and glory.
Evie also has a fantastic trio of men surrounding her, each very different and distinct. Lend is completely adorable and lovable even when their relationship is put to the test (which it was on several occasions); Reth is the mysterious fairy, full of charm; and Jack is still a bit of an enigma – can he be trusted or not? Each is wary of the others, but as Evie has to rely on them all so much, this caused plenty of witty banter and dialogue between to get thrown about.
The ending to the three book series wasn’t a disappointment. Right up until the end there were questions, doubts and surprises. The ending wasn’t what I expected or would have predicted to happen when I started reading the first book, but I think there was a certain harmony and synchronicity to the ending, so that everything seemed to fall into place. I also liked that there was closure on certain elements and yet still a sense of hope and opportunity for Evie.
Endlessly is a great end to a fun, spunky series, rounding off Evie’s adventures with a bang!
