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.
Evie might be a 17 years old girl, but she’s been through a lot for such a young age. Abandoned by her parents, raised by a government agency to control paranormal beings, fighting for survival after every turn, while all she wants is a normal teenage life. She’s gonna have to wait a bit more though, because fairies and paranormal alike have other plans for her. They want her to open a gate to send them back to their world, but not everyone agrees with that plan, including Evie, and she could die in the process!
Endlessly is the last instalment in this great YA series and if you liked the previous books, you’ll enjoy that one as well. Evie is still her colourful, pink-loving, soft-cursing self and I once again enjoyed her bubbly personality. She faces terrible situations in this instalment but handle things more maturely than she ever did. Her growth wasn’t always tremendous within a book, but over the course of the trilogy it’s quite noticeable. Another character I loved in this final book is Reth. His attitude and actions were very often condonable, and this time is no different, but we learn about his logic and motivations and everything kind of make sense, in a twisted faerie-mind way.
The plot was action-packed and Evie had to face many challenges. She showed a lot of courage and determination and faces her destiny with great maturity. She tried really hard to work a happy ending for everyone and even though it’s not possible, she did what’s second-best. She allied with some very unlikely characters and I think it added some flavour to the action!
I loved the conclusion. It really was a perfect ending to this trilogy and I felt all mushy inside! Kiersten White did an awesome job of ending this instalment, and closing to loop of the series, bringing closure to her readers. Not everything is perfect for every characters, but everything feels right and I’m glad for it. To often I’m not please with the end of a series, but this time, it’s not the case.
The Paranormalcy series is a fun and colourful YA series I strongly suggest to paranormal lovers. Its highly lovable role-model main character, curse-free language is perfect for younger teenagers and just as fun for the older ones. I definitely recommend it :)
