Endless by Kate Brian

Sunday, October 19, 2014

An unthinkable betrayal threatens everyone Rory loves in the third installment of our dark, thrilling Shadowlands series from New York Times best-selling author Kate Brian.

Rory Miller didn't just fall in love with Tristan Parrish. She fell in love with the idea of forever. He was the one who told her the truth about her existence in Juniper Landing: that her mortal life is over, and she will now spend eternity on the island, helping others in limbo move on.

But like Juniper Landing, a bright island with dark secrets, Tristan is too good to be true. The mysterious, heartbreakingly beautiful boy Rory thought she knew is responsible for unthinkable evil-sending good souls to the Shadowlands in order to get himself a second chance at life on Earth. He has already claimed Rory's friend Aaron and her own father, but when SPOILER Tristan sends her sister, Darcy, to the Shadowlands, too, Rory decides to take matters into her own hands. She will do anything to save her family, even if it means going to hell and back.

Goodreads Summary

In the third installment in the "Shadowlands" series, we find Rory in the in between trapped with others on a desert island trying to make sense of the situation with the people trapped along with her. She is in love with Tristan and the idea of being with him forever and wants to find him and be with him. He keeps sending people to the shadow world to save his pretty little self and that doesn't match up with the good person that he comes off as. 

This third book was decent however it was a bit of a disappointment compared to the other two books in the series. The characters were not much more that one dimensional and that didn't really help with bringing the story to life. It is great and selfless that Rory is trying anything to save her family members and I felt for the situation however the story doesn't do a great job at making her and any of the other characters that believe-able. Also when Rory enters into a love triangle when Tristan is gone for just one day defeats any belief that she had a undying love for him. Other than that, there is a decent story that has some redeeming moments, it just doesn't live up to the greatness of the first two in the trilogy.

  1. I haven't started this series yet, and based on the reviews that I have read for this final book, I am almost relieved. When a last book in a series doesn't hold up to the previous books it is immensely disappointing!
