Summary ( 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.

My Review:
When Evie said that she named her taser, Tasey and that it was hot pink and sparkly I knew this book was destined to be great. I was right. I didn’t know there was any hype about this book until just before I read it when I was about to add it to my ‘currently-reading shelf’ on goodreads. I’m not sure what kind of hype there was, but it doesn’t matter; this book was good. it’s a fun quick read and its not a typically YA fantasy. I loved Evie’s relationship with her best friend Lish (who is so bleeping awesome) and the mysterious Lend. I loved the idea of the International Paranormal Containment Agency, it's original which is a nice change. Usually I don’t really comment on covers but as pretty as this cover is its very misleading. It makes the book seem too dark and serious when it's also fun. I can’t wait to read the second book!
