Book Review: Endless by Amanda Gray

EndlessEndless by Amanda Gray
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Juxtaposing recurring fire and ice, warmth and cold throughout her accessible prose, Amanda Gray mesmerizes the reader in her tale of reincarnation, dreams, friendship, loss, and yet another round at the Ouija board gone queer. From her gloves that hide a secret to the photo of her long dead mother, Jenny is a parfait of mystery. When a deeper mystery paints itself into her picture, she and her friends pull together to unravel it before it unravels everything that matters to her.

Endless was a pleasant bedtime read, with solid characters and a plot that keeps going right through the last page. With just enough closure for a stand alone, but even more to recommend future visits into Jenny's future, I'd be shocked if a second book isn't on it's way soon, and I look forward to finding out how the story continues.

Although the cast is a pretty homogeneous group of white folk, they all come alive as independent strings on the same violin- each resonating with a different tension. I would have liked to have a little more insight into Jenny's dad and her best friend Tiffany's characters, but the story isn't over just yet.
