Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be…kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.
But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.
So much for normal.
Kiersten White has seriously out-done herself again. Again, she hit a homerun with this book as far as I am concerned. The last book ended as such a cliffhanger that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. Evie’s quick wit, sarcasm, bleeps & some serious sass had me giggling non-stop! White brings in a new character that’ll make you go “Hmmm…” and Evie & Lend’s relationship takes an interesting turn when she gets some new info on what she is. I love Lend’s character because he is the epitome of perfect boyfriend…no matter what elemental supernatural he is & he loves Evie unconditionally.
I would consider this book a “quick read” even though it’s over 350 pages because I swear Evie sounds just like me sometimes–which made her easy to relate to and entertaining. Even though she is a tough-girl (punching a vamp in the face gives that impression), Evie also has a soft side that causes her to be conflicted about what our world has in store for her and her future with Lend.
It took me a while to figure out who the bad guy was, even though I had a sneaking suspicion for a little while…but not being able to figure out the end is something that I have been deprived of for a while. Getting half way through the book and realizing how it’s supposed to end drives me crazy–so being in the dark while reading this was a plus for me.
From Raquel’s “arsenal of sighs” to the endless supernatural creatures that pop up…you’ll be so absorbed in this book that you’ll wish you had a pink taser named Tasey & a elemental boyfriend, too! To Kiersten: Keep ‘em coming! We can’t get enough of your books!
