I have very mixed emotions when it comes to Endless by Kate Brian. But first, here is the description from Amazon
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 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.
So I was very happy that Tristan was not responsible for sending Rory’s family over to the Shadowlands. But I was also very disappointed to hear that it was Krista. That one did surprise me, although after I read it, I felt that I should have expected it since we knew from the beginning that she never actually wanted to die.
I did not like the love triangle between Rory, Tristan, and Joaquin. I felt that it was very cliche, as was the ending. As soon as they established that Tristan was not the bad guy, you knew him and Rory would end up together. It was expected and was a cliche.
With that being said, I loved the lengths that Rory went to in order to save her family. She was willing to sell her soul to a monster, that had originally killed her, in order to save her dad and sister. I loved that in the end, everything worked out and everyone was safe.
This was a great conclusion to the story line but I was also left wanting more. It wrapped up into such a neat little package, that I was actually left disappointed by the ending.
