Endlessly by Kiersten White

Endlessly (Paranormalcy #3)
Author: Kiersten White
Pages: 385
Publisher: Harper Teen
Rating: 5/5



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.





   Endlessly is the third and final instalment in the Paranormalcy Trilogy by New York Times bestselling author, Kiersten White. I have been a fan of Evie and the gang since book one- making this book a real bitter-sweet moment for me. Endlessly did not disappoint my high expectations, it was an incredible conclusion!

   What makes this book (and the series) so amazing is mostly due to the main character, Evie! I can honestly say that no other Y.A. series has made me laugh so much! Evie's sarcasm and determination to say exactly what she feels is not only a complete joy to read, but is also a fabulous trait of a strong, independent, female lead. Not only is she hilarious, but she also doesn't have that "Jump into the unknown-headfirst-going to crash- but who cares?" attitude that many female characters have in YA books (I find at times it's really frustrating to read). Evie is opposite of this- she accepts help when she needs it and goes into every situation with a plan while still being bad ass with her tasey beside her. She's bleeping awesome ;)

   Speaking of hilarious, the situations Evie and Lend get into are so terrible (for them, not for me....I find them funny muhaha) I had to stop reading a few times and let my laughter out.  Kiersten White sure does have a unique and entertaining way of sharing this paranormal story with readers- it's just so incredibly creative, I couldn't put it down! 

   Of course, what's a paranormal story without a little romance?! We return to Evie and Lend's story, where we go through some of  the inconvenient situations they get into :P. And although the book is humorous, Lend and Evie are forced to face a big barrier in their relationship- one that will ultimately determine their future together. In addition to this adorable couple, Reth makes quite a few appearance that had me feeling sorry for him towards the end of the novel. Jack, sarcasm, ego and all,  also pops back into the story as a helping hand for Evie. I was happy to see everyone get a happy-ever-after ending!

Favourite Quotes...

"Hey, can you get Reth?" I asked the dragon. It gave me a look filled with such venomous disdain I half expected fire to come from its eyeballs instead of its mouth. "Just kidding! Yeah. Totally kidding."
With a flick of its tail snapping the space right in front of my face, it ran, hopped a couple of times, and then snaked through the air back into the trees.
"Grouchy, that one. I asked to roast some marshmallows earlier; it nearly ate me." Jack scratched his head, then stood.
~~~~~
“Don't go alone," Lend said, his voice tight with concern. 
"I'll take Jack." 
"Oh, wonderful, take the other psychotic guy in your life to go find the first one.” 

~~~~~
"You're supposed to tell us how to convince the Dark Court to join us."
"I- What? Seriously? I'm only here to make sure everything happens. I thought the queen would have a plan! I'm a glorified doorman. I open the gate, I close the gate. Nowhere in my job description of Empty One does it say I also convince a mob of anti-Evie faeries to saunter on through the gate."

Overall...

   Overall, Endlessly was a fantastic and hilarious end to a series I will always hold dear to my heart. I'm very sad to say this is the end *cries in corner* I can't wait to see what treasure Kiersten White will create next! *continues crying* What did you think about Endlessly? Do you enjoy Evie and the gang's humor as much as I do? Be sure to let me know in the comments! Keep Reading!

Your Y.A. Bookworm,
