Audiobook Copy from publisher
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.
Wrapping up a series is always a moment with crying and a laughing eye. The Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White has been one of my favorite series during the last years, and actually one where I couldn’t get the next book fast enough. With, Endlessly we say good-bye to a great series… *sniffles*
Note: I will write this review spoiler free to that even though you are not familiar with the series you can read it and hopefully get started with this series…
Evie – pink, girly, kick ass and wicked funny
Truly one of the highlights in this series was the main character Evie – she was hilarious and made me *bleeping* laugh so many times. Even when the situation was dire, Evie made me laugh! Clearly, Evie is Kiersten White’s masterpiece. But although Evie was strong and a fighter, she was also vulnerable, a girl searching for a family, for a place to belong and for love. It was adorable at some points when her vulnerability showed, and in the next moment she kicks some paranormal asses!
Thrilling Plot – pushed forward by mesmerizing Characters!
Are you plot or Character driven? You know what? You do not have to choose here, because you get both! I loved the storyline surrounding all those paranormal creatures that live among us and a facility that keeps track on them. Even more, I adored the creativity Kirsten White put into developing characters and creating unique and mesmerizing creatures. Lend – Evie’s big love is the most unusual character ever and if you have not met him yet – you MUST meet him! He’s phenomenal and I have never encounter something similar before.
Endlessly ties all loose ends, unravel some knots and give us a HEA…
I love when the last book in a series leaves you in a happy place. Satisfied with the ending and not being angry that everything is over. and how it ended – I call it the Mockingbird situation! Endlessly gives me peace and I know I will leave Evie and Lend and I will miss them but I am certain that they will be OK. Don’t get me wrong – they had it not easy in Endlessly – there was lots of exciting action and really truly heartbreaking tough decisions to be made! This last book was a roller coaster I happily jumped in!
Endlessly gives me peace and I know I will leave Evie and Lend and although I will miss them, I am certain that they will be OK. The Paranormalcy series is a must read for all lovers of the paranormal and for everyone who wants to laugh, action and adores some amazingly developed characters!
Get Audiobook at audible
With a length of 10 hrs, this audiobook has the perfect length for me and had a great pacing. Emily Eiden did a great job in capturing Evie’s girly, adorable but also funny voice! She captured the essence of Evie perfectly and even did a phenomenal job with all the male voices. Emily Eiden‘s interpretation of Jake’s was interesting, but once I got used to it I found it highly entertaining! If I’m about to reread the series, I would definitely listen to all the audios in this series!
Kiersten White’s next series “Mind Games”
comes out in February 2013 by Harper Teen and is a promised YA thriller with some supernatural elements! But, I am even more excited about her newest project “The Chaos of the Stars”
which comes out later 2013. And this teaser is just absolutely perfect and makes me so *bleeping* excited!
Isadora, the teenage daughter of ancient Egyptian Gods, wants to escape her crazy family forever. But can you run away from fate?

I haven’t brought myself to read it yet, mostly because I don’t want it to end! Sounds like it’s a great conclusion though.

I know how this feels!!! I also often do not like to pick up the last book, knowing that then, it will be all over. But, this one is a great satisfying ending!

“I love when the last book in a series leaves you in a happy place. ”
YES DANNY! As much as I love the dark and gritty stories that rip my heart out before slowly returning it to my chest, I live for the HEA ending:) So glad you were happy with this one, I have it in my pile but need to read Supernaturally first. Can’t wait to get back to Evie, I adored her in book 1!
It’s not hard to imagine Evie’s humor really coming through in this one on the audiobook version. And I love it when a story is plot and character driven. It’s the best of both worlds.

argh! I want to read this series and just haven’t gotten around to it, I still remember when I bought the first book – drats.
Great review. I sometimes feel apprehensive picking up a book when I know it is the last one. I really did enjoy this one too. Sad to see it end. 🙁

Evie really is one of my favorite heroins 😀 She is too cute! And of course good old Lend ^^ I can’t wait to read this one, even when it means ending such a funny series.
