Try as she might, Evie can’t seem to escape her not-so-normal past. And what was supposed to be a blissfully normal school break is ruined when a massive group of paranormals shows up at her house, claiming that Evie is the only one who can protect them from a mysterious, perilous fate. The deadly war between the faerie courts looms ever closer. The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its future rests solely in Evie’s hands. So much for normal. With a perfect blend of humor and suspense, Endlessly is everything readers could dream of in a conclusion—and the unexpected twists will keep them guessing until the very last page.

One thing I absolutely love about Kiersten White’s books is that she tells a good story and that story has humor. I mean laugh out loud humor! Thanks Kiersten for that and for writing a series that I really liked and was sad to see end! Her books aren’t overly gloomy, heart wrenching, or angsty so if you’re looking to be tortured you won’t be… or at least I wasn’t. That being said there were some scenes that did make me a little angry and those included Reth. I love that fairy and it was hard to see some of the things that happen to him in this book.

Team Evie and Lend fans will be very happy with the ending to this series. It wraps up nicely but not without issues. Endlessly throws a few twists in the way like the end of the paranormals, a new IPCA boss, the impending war between the fae, and a curse.  Oh and Jack’s back which was awesome because I loved him!

I was really happy with the ending but a little sad also, it was bittersweet. I really think fans of this series will enjoy it!

I picked a scene that made me snort I was laughing so hard!

“Have you been reading his diary?” I asked. “Because I’ll bet he got really creative with the violence ideas.”

“No, I only ever read yours. But let me tell you, one more exclamation mark dotted with a heart while talking about how good a kisser Lend is and I was about ready to do myself in. You’re rather single-minded when it comes to adoring him.”

“True dat,” Arianna said, nodding.

“How come you can use ’true dat’ if I can’t?” I asked, rightfully outraged.

“Because I am dead, and none of the rules apply anymore.”

Lend ate his omlet, refusing to answer Jack’s questions about just how it was on a scale from cutting off limbs to just breaking his nose. I gave Jack full points for flavor but noted the texture was slightly off, exempting him from name-calling but not from dirty looks.

Arianna lounged against the counter, and when I finished first we debated the usage of “dude,” “true dat,” and my favorite, “for serious.”

“I kind of wish they’d shut up,” Jack said.

“Dude, true dat,” Lend answered.

Jack nodded solemnly. “For serious.”
