Summary: Goodreads

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.

How do you do it?  How do you say goodbye to one of your favorite characters when a series ends?  Evie is quirky, gorgeous, sometimes terminally blonde, has a wicked sense of humor and can be oh so sensitive.  I am sorry to see her fade with book #3.  Strangely, I was satisfied with the ending though.  

To be perfectly honest, it wasn't the plotline that kept me going with this series.  The characters kept me hooked -  Lend, Reth and of course, Evie.  Who wouldn't want to follow a guy who is transparent like water and can glamour himself into anyone else, a fairie who is stunningly beautiful but void of any real emotions or morals, and a girl who isn't really a girl at all but an innocent who can suck the soul out of anyone who crosses her? What a love triangle that is, eh?

Endlessly was the perfect ending to a perfectly odd storyline.  Kiersten White effortlessly whips out her sarcastic wit and lends (no pun intended) Evie a voice which makes you feel like you're listening to your best friend.  Or maybe those are just my best friends and the kind of ridiculous banter we carry on. Regardless, the entire Paranormalcy trilogy is such a fun ride that its on my shelves as a series to purchase and re-read or lend (another no pun intended comment) to a friend.  I would highly recommend it to that inbe"tween" age where the reader is younger but looking to move out of the junior reading section and into YA.  Instead of swearing, Ms. White has graciously exploited the word "bleep". (I'd love to see the word count of this in her series).  Let me demonstrate - Oh bleep!@!  Is the series done already??  I can't wait to get my hands on Kiersten's  next series, Mind Games in Februrary.  I'm sure its bleeping fantastic!!!
