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...more

OMG! OMG! OMG! *deep breathe*

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.

It. Is. AMAZING.

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...more

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-...more

(This review may contain spoilers).

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...more

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.

This installment of the Paranormals series picks up a ye...more

JL Byran, your books rock! This was one amazing series and what an awesome finale! Most definitely my favourite series ever :)

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

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...more

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. Everythi...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

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 really enjoyed the co...more

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...more

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...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 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
Tami Pelles
My favorite. I was kind of disappointed when it ended, but at the same time the ending was I think perfect. It got a little hard to follow the 2 story lines, the back and forth was a bit whiplash-y at times, but interesting. Yep, definitely the best of the bunch.
Jennifer
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."
I won't give t...more

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

Why a 4 star review you ask? Because while this book was great and gave you an end to a long story it was confusing at times. Revisiting past lives every other paragraph was hard to follow at times. It was pretty cool to see how intertwined they all were. The plague bringer, the healer, the love charmer, the fear giver, a necromancer, a girl who could see the future, the guy who could pull any memory out your head and the girl who can see the memories of the dead. Phew I think that's all of them...more

Well, I must say I am sad to see this story come to an end:( But very satisfied with the ending. This book was truly unique and a stand alone series, nothing else compares or even resembles this story. I ended up with it on my e-reader cause it sounded kind of neat and it was only a dollar or something like that, and I am truly happy that i found it. It was AWESOME!!!!! I hope this book get picked up by a movie studio because it would blow Twilight out of the water man, screw Bella & Edward,...more

Liked the story pretty well.
Could use a good and thorough editing! Glaring mistakes interrupt the flow of the story and the typos, misused words, ("they walked into the door."....Hunh? and "He went thorough the hall." Seriously?) And "rewrite errors"! ( Don't know what else to call them, but looks like this... "Jenny and Seth went to the to house...") are rampant in this book. RAMPANT! I feel like the writer should care enough to put forth the most polished final version possible.
Elyse Schramm
I really enjoyed the last book! I loved how Bryan brought the story full circle, and it had a good ending tying up all the ends. I especially loved the fact that we got to delve further into the past lives of the characters, and the inclusion of Alexander, Ashleigh, Tommy, Esmeralda, and of course Jenny and Seth, with the introduction of a new character! I was very pleased with the last book in the series, especially since I was surprised to find that there would be a 4th book at all.
Ronnie Jacobs
loved it what a great finish to a fab series of books...
Kathleen Fawn
The more Bryan I read the more I like him. Flash backs can be unpopular but I like the way Bryan did it in this book. It fleshed out a novel that would have been very short otherwise. The way he integrated the past into the present was good and justified the return to past-life Jenny and Seth. I do still feel Bryan gives up information too quickly. I think the tendency to go into long summary and the impatience with information makes the books a good bit shorter than they could be.

I enjoyed this series pretty well. I must admit that I wasn't able to read the last 40 or so pages, not because I didn't want to, but because it was a nook lender book. It was taken away before I finished. This book was confusing how the characters stories kept jumping from present day to a similar adventure they all had as different people during the Nazi regime. You had to really pay attention to keep up with the changing names to know which story you were in.

What a bitter-sweet book Jenny Plague-Bringer was for me I really loved and enjoyed it but I was sad to read the end of The Paranormals Series yes it was a little bit difficult for me to get into and there were some stuff that bother and I did not like but I did not let that stop me for reading this series it was an pretty awesome series that I really enjoyed and I couldn't put the book down after I got used to it! Well Until Next Time!

An absolutely amazing book and series.

No Spoilers.

I'm usually not one for alternating POV's, but the author writes them so perfectly and with such ease, that I couldn't help but love journeying into their minds, seeing what they see, feeling what they feel.

What you get is a tight, intriguing plot, incredibly deep characters, romance, and action. Can't ask for anything more than that.

Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

What a great finale to end this series! Mr Bryan, your writing reminds me of a mix of Stephen King and Jack Kilborn. Gore, paranormal mystery, some legends and folklore can only be pulled off by a truly talented writer who is beyond gifted in their craft. This series was brilliantly disgusting and horrifically thrilling. I loved every gag worthy moment :) and I'm beyond thrilled for the HEA

This book was pretty good and it was the perfect ending to the series. The only problem I had with is that it seemed like the series could've ended with the third book. This just seemed a little too much. Like I said it ended the series perfectly tho so what do I know. It was still a really good and worth while read.
