Summary ( 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 Review:
After all the kick butt action of Paranormalcy, Supernaturally toned it down so there could be more of just Evie living her life. I miss the high amounts of Tasey the taser, but I enjoyed reading about how Evie is handling her new “normal” life. Which for a “normal” life isn’t all that normal, her roommate is a vampire and she is, after all dating, an adorable shape-shifter Lend, but at least she has a locker now in this new life! Technically not a whole heck of a lot happened in this book, it was more of a “okay now that we know who these people are let’s get to know them even more so we can totally mess with their minds in the next book” kinda thing. And I loved that. I’m glad we got to learn more about what Evie is and what she can do in this installment. I also love how this series is paranormal, but not DARK paranormal, it’s cute and there are a whole lot of laughs, especially when it comes to the new character, Jack. He is trying his hardest to annoy Evie as much as possible and when he does it is the funniest thing ever. Read Supernaturally if you’re looking for the quirky follow-up to the amazing Paranormalcy!
