Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.
But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.
I’m late to reviewing this book. NOT because I didn’t love it but because I wanted to read it again. Plus, re-reading it makes me ansty for Supernaturally the much-anticipated sequel!
Evie is a spit-fire, a total pistol that you love immediately. Kiersten doesn’t pull any punches or wait to get you right into the thick of the story. Opening in a cemetery, Evie’s after a vampire. You see, she’s not just a tough chick armed with a taser (aptly named Tasey). She’s also intriguing, mysterious and her comedic streak is displayed when she mocks the leering vampire who wants to take a nice bite out of her.
Working at the IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency) since the tender age of eight-years old. Evie’s an asset to the agency and they know it. She ‘sees’ through a paranormal’s glamor. I’m trying not to think about how unattractive Eric from True Blood would be to Evie. She doesn’t get the benefit of the hotness, just the rotting, pale, dead corpse beneath the pretty.
My sympathies, Evie. Truly.
Now, this is a romantic triangle and it’s one that I’m honestly torn over. There is Reth, hunky faerie (which totally sounds weird but it’s soooo not) and Lend, shape-shiftery hot dude, with a really awesome backstory (and I’d like to think a hot dad) **Don’t judge me.
Secretly, I think Kiersten is a Reth fan. Just my .02, but while they’re both yummy in different ways, my vote goes for Reth. **Don’t judge me
Back to Evie.
I love strong female characters. She holds her own and does it with flair. You can appreciate her struggle between wanting to do what others feel is right and what she wants for herself.
To just be normal. It’s not too much to ask right?
Read Paranormalcy, you’ll love it.
