I was so excited when I heard that J.L. Bryan was writing another book about Jenny and the paranormals. After reading Alexander Death, I so wanted to hear more of the story, more about Tommy and Esmeralda, and more about all of their past lives. Jenny Plague-Bringer delivered on all points. I loved how the book seamlessly moved between current day and Jenny and Seth's most recent past life. Some authors cannot do this without creating a disruption in the story, but J.L. Bryan nailed it.

J.L. Bryan has done it again. This last addition to the series picks up where Alexander Death left off and we discover new paranormals.
In the previous book we were shown how bad a** Jenny was in her past lives and how she can be in this one. Now she wants something different and will fight for it.
As a reader you are drawn in to Jenny's pain, her self-loathing, her self-preservation and now we see her vulnerability. "Just a monster who can't touch anyone. Death in a white dress."

Seth and Jenny are happily living in Paris up until she begins telling stories about her recent past incarnation. At first I was disappointed. why? because there is no such thing as reincarnation! lol J/K! I found it all a bit confusing and uncomfortable. I wasn't interested nor did I want to be bothered with their past lives. I wanted to stay in Paris!:(

Jenny took us back to the Great Depression of 1933 where she was working in a sideshow Carnival as the Worlds Most Diseased Woman. Tis quite f

I have just loved the hell out of this series. I honestly thought it was over with Alexander Death, but then Jeff surprised us with a fourth book that really impressed me! It was great to be back in the presence of these incredible characters, and to see them all in a very new light.


Holy awesome to the sauce and back in the pot to swim around in the awesome, Batman! It’s no secret that J.L. Bryan has really blown me away with his world-

I am exhausted! I hope JL Bryan leaves poor Jenny and Seth alone now. They have suffered enough tests of their relationship now to last the rest on their incarnations! Seriously though, AWESOME additional story - I could not put it down. Excellent writing, excellent characters, and I loved the back and forth between the parallel story of past and present - but different outcomes. Just amazing. But Jenny and Seth deserve some peace and quiet now! If you have not started the series, you must! It h ...more

Whew! I thought we had closure with the end of the 3rd book. You know, since (most of) the bad guys got what was coming to them and Jenny and Seth had a chance at a normal life. Okay, at least it was as normal a life as someone who can't touch anyone without infecting them with vile, vile diseases could expect to have. Oh, and I guess being declared legally dead and having to hide their real identities sucked. And that whole "can't see their parents again thing" isn't *exactly* normal, but OTHER ...more

I fell IN LOVE with JL Bryan’s Jenny Pox series in September of 2011… When I devoured the entire series in less than a week! If you NEVER read indie authors, indie books… Whatever the case may be- READ The Paranormals series by JL Bryan.


Jenny Pox will RIP your heart out, make you fall in love and believe that ANYTHING is possible. And the last 15% will leave you in utter disbelief and complete *OH MY GOD!!!!! NO FREAKING WAY THAT JUST HAPPENED!!!!!* I

I've really loved the Paranormals series from the first book, Jenny Pox, and my love grew with the characters through Tommy Nightmare. When Alexander Death came out, it was bittersweet because this was the last book in the series, but the author ended the trilogy on such a high note. When J.L. Bryan announced that there would be a fourth installment following these characters, I was so excited to get to be immersed in their universe again.

I bought the book as soon as I could get my pretty little Skeleton hands on it. I breezed through it in less than 24 hours with 5 kids, and looming deadlines. It wasn't that I couldn't put it down, because I had to; it was that it drove me insane until I picked it back up again.

It's an odd thing, living through two worlds in the same book. There is unraveling nonstop. Even though the book opens with what seems to be a happy ending, Jenny feels as though it is impossible for her to really have on

I enjoyed the previous books in this series, but I have to admit, I was a little worried when I realised that there was a fourth book coming out. The third book seemed to have reached a natural ending and I couldn't see what else of the story needed to be told.

Actually, the book was pretty good. It was interesting to see two more of the paranormals and it made me wonder if there are more than the eight primeval creatures already mentioned. There were two other

After the last book I thought this series was over, so when I heard there was going to be a sequel I was a little worried that it was just a ploy to make some more money. I have to say that this books was a great addition to the series. Learning more about all of the paranormals' pasts was very interesting. It also added to the depth of the characters in my opinion. This book brought together all of the characters we had previously met and some new ones to end with a bang.

I liked this series. I was with Jenny from the start and I stayed with her until the end. I thought she was relatable, amusing, and fierce (especially after book three).

This book had me teetering through a lot of it, though. It jumped back and forth between Jenny and Seth's current life, and the parallels with the life they lived back in the 1930's when Hitler was rising to power in Germany. There was a lot of information about eugenics and creating a superior race of beings (all blonde-haired

I was excited and anxious when I saw that there would be one final book, in this series. I felt that Alexander Death had wrapped up the story, in a nice, little package. However, there was no way that I wouldn’t read this novel because of how amazing the first installments were. I was not disappointed in the least with this part of the series.
I was captivated by Jenny and Seth in Paris, they were so happy. Jenny was waiting for the other shoe to drop, but still they were very happy. When Mariel

i loved all four books. i cried for Jenny in all of them because she was special but she was treated like shit. in this one Alexander aka Jonathan Barrett betrayed her by saying she's going to figure out how her powers work if she becomes a test subject where instead they poke and study her but she's prisoner. Seth once again gets tricked into having sex with someone who isn't Jenny because of Ashleigh and all three times i was disappointed in him. i understand he was under a spell on all accoun ...more

Jenny the plague bringer is the fourth and final book (as far as I’m aware) of the Jenny Pox series. Jennifer “Jenny” Morton is a young adult with a lethal, decease infested, touch. Lives life trying to avoid contact and be as good a person as she can. She encounters Seth, the one she can touch, her opposite, the one with the healing touch. Her kind are only meant for and are ruled by destruction. Neither Jenny and Seth wish to continue on with the same pattern their previous lives have created. ...more

A few months ago, I probably wouldn’t have thought I’d get through this series. Not because it’s not good, but because I’m TERRIBLE when it comes to reading series book — I’m excellent, however, at putting off reading anything past the first few books until I get to the point where I don’t remember anything that happened in the series and have to reread.

This series is one that started with a reread of the first story and then a month-long effort to get through the entire series to see it come fu

This was a great ending to a great series. It could have ended at the third book but I'm glad it didn't. We find Jenny and Seth in Paris hiding from the government in happiness. But someone new is looking for them and he won't stop until he finds them. This addition to the Jenny Pox series gives us more of what we have come to love and so much more. Some of the characters we have seen before like Tommy and Esmarelda are also in this book and I was glad to have them there. We also get to glimpse ...more

In this final book in the Paranormals series, I felt like all my lingering questions were answered. Bryan does a fantastic job weaving the past and present in an effective story telling without slowing down the plot too much. One thing Bryan is particularly skilled at is having realism interspersed with the fantasy world. For example, the CDC was involved in the cleanup and investigation in the first three novels. Again Bryan continues that trend in Jenny’s struggle to manage the memories of a d ...more

Honestly, I loved this book just as much as all the other books in the "Jenny Pox" series (sorry, I just can't bring myself to call them "The Paranormals" series.) Anyway.

I absolutely loved, loved, loved all the back and forth between the present and the characters' past lives and how the two parallel each other so seamlessly. It was great.

However, there were SO MANY editing problems, that I couldn't -- in good conscience -- give it five stars. In my review of the third boo
A Let Down

I read the first 3 books, and it probably should have ended there. I did like getting all the answers, finally.

However it was boring.

Where the other 3 held my attention from beginning to end, this one was only good for the last third. I loved the past life remembrances of the previous books. This past life was boring and lacking.

The main read was all the boring in between things. Every day normal life was most of this book. No action came til late.

Why 3 stars? The ending would have ra

This one was so much longer than all the other books. I think this is probably the strongest book out of the series, which is surprising to me because I usually don't like the final books of a series. I was almost more interested in reading about the past life than I was the current one. I like that it kind of went back to the first book with having a focus on Ashleigh's power. Overall this was a really great series, and I wish more people knew about it. The sexual situations are actually pretty ...more

In the final installment of the Jenny Pox series, Jenny aids Seth and Mariella open up their subconscious, so they too would be able to have the memories of their past lives. Things quickly go from good to bad and I couldn't help but dislike some characters even more than I did before, but I still couldnt wait to find out what would happen next!

'Jenny Plague- Bringer' was an excellent ending to an awesome series, 'The Paranormals'. The storyline took me on quite the adventure spanning many years. I also received a history refresher, which was pretty cool in relation to Jenny and her friends. The way it played out was well written and quite creative. I loved how the author wove huge historical occurrences throughout. The characters have been intriguing. Seth was hilarious in this book. I loved his sense of humor. Jenny is a great lead. ...more

Woo-Wee! This book was like reading the first glad I got up the nerve to read past that first bit that scared the be-jeezies out of me. I should have known that Mr. Bryan would leave me disappointed in how the story ended, because no one gets away with bad shenanigans in this series.
