Amanda Gray: Endless

Jenny Kramer knows she isn't normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them.

When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumble on an old music box with instructions for “mesmerization” and discover they may have more in common than they thought. Like a past life.

Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But they weren't alone. Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her own dreams was there, too. When Nikolai appears next door, Jenny is forced to acknowledge that he has travelled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back.

While Ben, Jenny and Nikolai race against the clock - and the Order - Jenny and Nikolai discover a link that joins them in life - and beyond death.


I received free ebook via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The first thing that I noticed was the gorgeous cover. I love it. It is so beautiful. So peaceful. I would love to have it as a poster in my wall. Something about it is just... I love it. I absolutely love the cover.

But the book and the story. Well... It turned out to be quite different than I first thought. And in a good way. It was way more complex than I thought. The idea behind the story is great and it was so well written. I'm not usually big fan of time travel, but it worked. Like I said, it was different.

Everything in this book was like a mystery. There were this massive amount of puzzle pieces and piece by piece everything comes together. I couln't stop reading, I just needed to know what the next piece would be and how it would fit in. And it took a while to finally get some idea of the big picture. I think I had read over half of the book and I still didn't know what was going on. There were always something more you wanted to know and that was the main reason why I couln't stop reading. It was great how much little details there were about art and Romanovs and stuff. And it was great how story slowly reveals how past and present meet.

There were three main characters, one girl and two boys and yet Endless doesn't have that typical love triangle. First Jenny meet Ben, but can't stand him. Then they become friends and Ben turns out to be great and loyal friend. Then Nikolai comes into the picture and you can that first there is a little bit of tension, but luckily it clears out and Jenny and Ben are able to remain friends, even when Jenny and Nikolai grow closer.

The ending wraps thing up pretty nicely leaving room for sequel. And I really hope that there will be a sequel to this story. Ending was fine, but I think but it wasn't actually a happy ending. Well, it depends how you look it, but I think that there are still lot more in this story and would like to read more.
