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've thoroughly enjoyed reading Kiersten White's trilogy starting with PARANORMALCY, then SUPERNATURALLY, and now ENDLESSLY. This last book provides a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and allows Evie to truly become the young woman she wants to be in the normal life she craves. The characters are once again entertaining from faeries to water elementals to vampires to werewolves to selkies, and all the others who make this series so fun. But most of all, there is Evie - the pink-loving, girly, take-no-crap, strong, decide-my-own-fate, sassy, tell-them-how-it-is girl at the center of this whole world. She's torn between two worlds: the normal one she wants to have with her boyfriend Lend, and the paranormal one that needs her special abilities to save all of them.

This is the kind of book that has fun, conflict, romance, sass, and takes everything right to where it needs to be to provide the happy ending we're hoping for as readers who have taken this journey from IPCA (the International Paranormal Containment Agency) with Evie. We've seen her go from being unaware of the outside world beyond what she sees on television to making her own choices and deciding her own fate. She comes into her own in this story, and it's an entertaining journey for her to get there. The plot provides the necessary and understandable conflict, the world gets explained more deeply than imagined, the characters are fun, the writing is entertaining, and it has a sense of finality to Evie's story who we've spent so much time with and rooted for. if you're read the first two books, you'll definitely want to get this final book to complete Evie's story. I, for one, look forward to seeing what Kiersten White will have in store for her readers next.
