Book Review: Endlessly by Kiersten White


At First Sight: All Evie wanted to do was plan an amazing Winter Formal and spend the winter break with her boyfriend Lend, who is back from college. But of course, when you're Evie - a.k.a. The Empty One - and you're a pawn in the plots of paranormals and humans a like, nothing is ever easy.

Over the last few weeks, lots of paranormals have been gathering around Evie's town, and they all want the same thing: for Evie to open a gate to the dimension they all came from. 

But Evie isn't sure she wants to help out - she doesn't know if she can do it, or how, or what will it cost her. - but she does know that if she does it, it will be on her own terms. 

With the time running out for people she really cares about, Evie has some very tough choices ahead of her. 

Second Glance: I've been looking forward to Endlessly since last year when I read Supernaturally, since I'm such a big fan of this series. And I really, really wanted to like it! I'm happy to say that I did but not as much as I hoped to. 

The book has a rather uneven pace, it has moments were a lot of things are happening, where there are things to be accomplished and others where the action just stops. The writing is funny and I still love the characters, I even grew to care a little about Reth, the faerie guy who is always around Evie, but it was very easy for me to put the book down. 

And sometimes it took me days to get back to it. 

Again, it's not a bad book by any stretch of the imagination, but the pace was a bit of a killer for me. Also I thought the book needed an epilogue. I felt the story just stopped and I would have loved to read a little ways down the road, see how life was after what happens. 

Bottom Line: Endlessly was a good closure for Evie's story, it wraps up everything pretty well, the writing  was fun and breezy and cute, like Evie herself. I liked it, but I wasn't as excited about it as I thought I would be. Maybe my expectations were a bit high, but I still think it was a good book and a lovely series.
