Summary from Goodreads.com
My Review: Well, here we are at the conclusion of Evie’s story. I almost dreaded reading this book, just because I was going to miss Evie and her world so much when it was over. She is almost the opposite of me, but I loved getting lost in her world and watching her kick some *bleeping* tail! While she may be in danger and her world is starting to become bleaker by the hour, she is still the same old Evie. This conversation between her and Lend is proof of that.
“Anything else?” he asked, playing with my hair.
“Oh, yeah, and there’s a dragon in the alley behind the diner, hanging out with Nona.”
Lend frowned at me, his warm fingers lingering on the back of my neck. “And this gets a mention after the color scheme for a dance and a new episode of a teen soap?”
“Priorities, Lend. Priorities”
She may be fighting to keep her life the way it is, but she still had me cracking up. Even in situations where it looked like there was no way out, she was still cracking some kind of joke and had me laughing out loud. Evie can kick some serious butt, and do it with a smile on her face and that is what I loved about her.
While there was a lot going on in the past two books, Paranormalcy, (review here) and Supernaturally, (review here), it was all clearly building to everything that went down in Endlessly. Evie is taking hits from all sides, the supernaturals want her, the faeries need her and the IPCA is under new management and want Evie under lock and key. It is completely chaotic and it kept the plot moving forward at a breathtaking speed. I think Raquel summed up the overall theme of this book in a conversation she had with Evie.
“Sometimes it takes a little chaos for things to work themselves out. When we make it through the chaos, we can use it to shape the world around us into something better than it was before.”
“I’m good at the chaos part, at least.”
“And you’ll be just as good at makings things better on the other end. Trust me.”
While the action is non-stop, Evie and Lend still get plenty of swoon-worthy moments together. He sure does know how to say and do the right things to win her over and I have adored watching the two of them get to know one another and fall in love through the course of this series.
I cannot say too much else about the book without given plot points away, but it is definitely a fantastic conclusion to this story. I am sure Evie would say it was *bleeping* awesome. Well, maybe not while it was happening, but in retrospect I am sure she thinks something similar to that. If you have read any of these books in this series, you have to read Endlessly and see where Evie’s journey leads her. And if you have not read this series, than I highly recommend checking it out!
