Endlessly (Paranormalcy #3)
by 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 was an awesome conclusion to a wonderful trilogy. I’m really glad I picked it up and finally cracked the first book open because it was such a great adventure. Things were chaotic and crazy in Supernaturally, but they got even more crazy in Endlessly regarding the paranormal creatures. And of course, Evie’s the only person who could help.
Evie, being a caring and fiercely loyal friend, saved a lot of people and paranormal creatures in Endlessly in various ways. She learned a lot about the world that she didn’t know before, which seemed to be the case most of the time. Despite spending over half of her life working with the paranormal agency, she really didn’t know all that much about the paranormal world. But Evie was a resilient and kick-ass character and she had the strength and guts to do some of the most impossible things. I loved that a lot of characters made somewhat of a comeback in this novel, some of them who weren’t always on Evie’s (or anyone’s) good side. I loved watching those not-so-good characters grow and adapt to change.
The Paranormalcy trilogy had a ton of hilarious moments and it was full of humor in the most unexpected places. After a horrible trip to the Faerie Lands, Lend was cursed so that he fell into a deep sleep whenever he and Evie were in the same room. It sounds horrible (and it was), but it was also kind of hilarious. They hid in closets or behind doors and yelled out their conversation and plans. Moments like that are what really kept me entertained throughout the story. I loved the balance between humor, action, seriousness, and even romance. It was perfect.
I highly recommend the Paranormalcy trilogy. It’s such a unique and refreshing story that has a bunch of elements of the paranormal I love. It has a Buffy-ish feel to it, with Evie being that sort of kick-ass heroine in a world riddled with the supernatural. It also reminds me of adult paranormal series like the Sookie Stackhouse series in the sense that Evie was relatively normal and wrapped up in supernatural messes, but the books had humor and romance in them, too. I wish there were more books and I think it would make a pretty awesome tv show. The Paranormalcy trilogy is a MUST READ for paranormal fans!
