Description: 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.
Thoughts: I wasn't as crazy about this one as I was about Paranormalcy, but I still loved it.
It wasn't quite as campy as the first one, but was still hilarious and very fun. It's so different from any other series out there. Somehow Kiersten White manages to be dark and edgy without being mopey or graphic/gory.
Evie is one of my favorite YA characters. I love that she's smart and sparkly. She's very funny and just wants to live a normal life even though she's anything but normal. She has such a good heart and is so fun to read about. Kiersten White really expands Evie's character in this book, we get to see a whole different side of her, yet, we don't loose any of that old Evie.
Supernaturally spent a lot of time with some new characters and exploring the faery world - it was a pretty major departure from the world of IPC. Kiersten's faery's are dark and conniving, there is very little redeeming about them, but they're such fun characters to have as an adversary.
Book Review: Supernaturally by Kiersten WhiteI love this series! It's so fun and so different - a total breath of fresh air.
