Endlessly by Kiersten White

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.

Kiesrten’s unique world of faeries, elemental and paranormal beings was one of the most interesting tales I have read in a while. Her lore was thoroughly imagined and the vivid storytelling pulled me into the pages. This was an entertaining and fun trilogy by Kiersten White, filled with action, adventure and romance, with just the right amount of danger to keep you on the edge of your seat. Throughout the Paranormalcy trilogy, Evie was one of those characters that you loved one minute and then absolutely despised the next. When it came to smart decision making she could be rather fickle, but then it wouldn’t be a very interesting story if she always made the right choices. But she was also funny, honest and loyal. While it’s obvious that Evie only has true passion for Lend, Reth continues to fight for her affections; and after discovering his sacrifice to stay at her side, in the end she is able to forgive him for his protective and manipulative ways. Evie has fought every step of the way to be her own person, but ultimately she was created to open a gate that will send every paranormal being back to their own world. Long ago they initially came to Earth because they were lonely, but the gate they first traveled through nearly destroyed them all. By living on Earth (and within the Faerie Realms), the paranormals are slowly dying. Evie is their only hope of returning home, and while she still balks at the idea that she might not make it out alive, she knows that she must do what is right. The ending of this book leaves you with the warm-and-fuzzies in your chest, everything, I do mean everything works out for the best, and while tension builds throughout the story there was ultimately less emotional impact then I was hoping for.
