4 STARS: I Really Liked It

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.

My Thoughts:
This was my first book to buy the Kindle Version and read it on my IPod Touch I got last week. I thought it would be weird not having a book to hold, but I actually loved it. The highlighting option is fun when keeping track of my favorite quotes (so many in this book!). I still like books to hold and easily flip through the pages, but I could definitely get used to this ebook thing. 

The 2nd installment in this Parnormalcy series (I think it’ll be a trilogy) did not disappoint. Evie is so funny. I love her flirty fun relationship with Lend. Evie got her normal life she so desperately wished for in the first book. She’s going to high school which she discovers is actually kind of boring, especially with Lend in college. I wish Lend could still be in high school still with her, but then she wouldn’t be able to discover so much about herself on her own.

Evie is the main character. She’s an almost 17 year old senior applying to colleges. She wants to go to Georgetown to be with Lend. Lend is the paranormal shape shifting hottie she met in the first book. Reth is her ex-boyfriend faerie who is a bit on the manipulative side. Is that an understatement? Arianna is her vampire roommate. She keeps things in perspective. Then there’s the new guy Jack who’s actually a human. He’s crazy, hyper, and hard to get real answers from.  Oh and Raquel, I love her multitude of sighs that Evie translates.

Favorite Line:
“I sighed, pulling out my gym clothes. What school chooses yellow and brown for their colors? Gross. Just, gross.”

And another because I could highlight lots and couldn’t choose.

“He stepped forward into the light, white eyes gleaming dully beneath his glamour and fangs bared in a pleasant smile. Yup, exactly where I needed to be. Bring it on, dead guy.”

Buy it!
