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.

I love Kiersten White's writing as always. Love Evie's wit and humor. And, bleep, if I didn't fall in love with a faerie! My poor little heart is broken over the end of the trilogy. I'm going to get a hardback version of this when it comes out to add to my collection of Paranormalcy books. It's a keeper.

I've read a lot of books with great humor recently, but Endlessly has reminded me that there is no one out there like Kiersten White. I bleeping love Evie's snarky remarks and retorts and eye rolling. While she may have been created as an Empty One to right the faerie's wrong, she has grown into a strong young woman in her own right, proving that she can make decisions for herself. They may not always be the best in hindsight, but she does what she can. She's a bright little package of sparks with a big heart filled with love.

The character that most moved my heart, however, was Reth. He wasn't my favorite character in book one, but he's been opening up more since book two. Halfway through Endlessly, I fell in love with him.  I still like Lend and think he's better for Evie since he accepts her for who she is and doesn't try to manipulate her or change her, but he's been absent since book two while Reth is there in the heart of the plot. Plus, the banter he exchanges with Evie! They're downright amusing. I can share much about him without giving away spoilers, but know that I love him despite his faerie, plotting heart. He is able to love and feel in his own faerie way.

I will bleeping miss Evie and all her paranormal friends and foes. Since leaving IPCA, she's met so many people and finally found her place in the world. To have her peace threatened by supernatural creatures insisting that they need her to save them? That sucks. Big time. Through it all, however, Evie never ceased to keep me laughing. She's one of my favorite YA heroines. She has such a big heart and great sense of humor, not to mention amazing friends (who I seriously want to steal from her but won't because she'll come after me and tase me).

The stakes are higher than ever, and the fate of the paranormal world rests in Evie's hands. Favorite characters return from Arianna to Vivian to Jack. And Reth and Lend and Raquel and smelly unicorns. The list keeps going on. This book is a keeper. If you don't already own the first two books, go out there and buy them and read, and then preorder your copy of Endlessly (or buy it when it hits shelves).


In preparation of Endlessly, HarperTeen is offering the first book for $2.99 on Kindle! If you haven't read the trilogy yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? IT'S AMAZING!! If you've already read the first books and don't own it yet on your Kindle, this will be a great addition to your portable library!

  1. Yay! I've missed Kirsten's humour ;) Really excited to see what these characters get up to.

    Ugh. Just stop. Don't remind me that this is the last book. Just...no.

    Happy you loved it though ;) *runs away*

    1. I know... I'm so sad to depart from these amazing characters. :(

      Though I am excited for Mind Games, to see what else Kiersten has for us.

      But still!
