Book Review: Endlessly by Kiersten White


Endlessly (Paranormalcy #3)
Author: Kiersten White
Summary:
Kiersten White’s New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy comes to a breathless conclusion with a signature mix of wit, romance, paranormal creatures, and a truly original heroine.
In Endlessly, pink-loving, butt-kicking Evie has way too much on her to-do list. Paranormals are begging her to open a faerie gate so they can leave the human world, something Evie’s not sure she has the power to do. The Dark Queen is torturing humans and must be destroyed.
On top of all that, Evie’s prom is coming up. She’s not sure what to wear, and, oh, yeah, her shape-shifting boyfriend, Lend, has been cursed so that he falls into an enchanted sleep whenever he and Evie are in the same room…and even Evie’s ex-boyfriend, the faerie Reth, can’t reverse the dark magic.
An epic battle is looming, and the choices Evie makes will determine the fate of whole paranormal world—and her own life.
 

 


Endlessly is the last book in the Paranormalcy series, one of the first series I read and that I enjoyed madly.
It’s been a long, long time since I read the first two books of this series. Maybe that’s the reason I couldn’t connect with the characters, I don’t know.
I loved Paranormalcy and I liked Supernaturally (I adore the covers). But I expected to “love” Endlessly, sadly, I just liked it.
I think that’s my fault because it takes me too much to say goodbye to my favorite series, and then my taste in books change. My main problem with Endlessly was that I found Evie’s voice too juvenile.
Sometimes I think it was childish and I couldn’t enjoy some parts because of it.

The characters are still great and I love them.  Mostly Reth, who’s my favorite.
The romance was sweet and cute but also a little boring. Or maybe that was because it felt like a love triangle (is not) and I liked better the wrong boy). I really liked Lend in this book but I didn't find him swoon-worthy like in the first one. 

But don’t get me wrong, the plot wasn’t boring, it was fast paced and mind-blowing.
Endlessly was a great ending for this series. If I ignore the fact that I got older and stopped loving Evie’s kind of voice, Endlessly was a great final installment for this series.

“We linked hands—my ex-boyfriend, my boyfriend, and my former friend-then-enemy-then friend and I—and walked through a door to see if maybe empty carbs were good for something after all.”

  1. That's pretty much how I feel about this series too. I read Supernaturally a while ago and I couldn't stand Evie's voice anymore. I'm not even sure I want to finish the series because I'm already so over with it, which is disappointing because I remember loving Paranormalcy. :(

    -P.E.

  2. I read this series back to back and although Evie was a bit juvenile at times, I really enjoyed them! They were fun, quirky and fast reads!
