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.
Book 2 is always hard to write. It’s in between that first book, where the characters are all shiny and new and pretty, and book 3, where everything is settled. I think Kiersten White did a pretty good job in creating a second book for this series. It’s fun and light-hearted – something that Ms. White is known for! (especially on Twitter!)
Evie is still the same ole Evie, with her love for “obnoxious pink” and all. However, I will say that she DID annoy me when she was lying to Lend. That is just not cool, Evie! I did like how she finally realized that high school/normal life isn’t as great as she thought it would be. I guess she is the perfect embodiment of a teenager after all
I would definitely recommend re-reading Paranormalcy before reading Supernaturally if it’s been a while since you’ve read it because I found myself trying to recall what all happened in the first book!
