synopsis from goodreads
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.
Oh my bleeeeep, this was so fanfreakingtastic!
When I read Paranormalcy last year I didn’t expect to love it so much – but I did, I fell in love with Evie and her love of pink and with Lend. So of course I couldn’t wait to start reading Supernaturally!
Normally, I’m always afraid of second books in a series, they can either life up to the hype generated in the first book, or they leave you disappointed. I’m glad I can tell Supernaturally most definitely delivered!
… she now has a locker (..duh), goes to a public school and lives with a Vampire. She’s still madly in love with her über-gorgeous shapeshifting boyfriend Lend. But, she misses Raquel – she was the only mother she ever had (which is sad to be honest since Raquel is not the best mother figure…) but Evie misses her and also her old life full of action. Plus, suddenly having a normal life isn’t as cool as she imagined and with Lend being in college…
When Raquel asks Evie to help out with some paranormal problems she first hesitates but then can’t help herself and takes over some jobs. Needless to say Lend doesn’t want to see her in danger which is why Evie keeps is a secret. Oh boy, I don’t need to tell you that this wasn’t the smartest idea..
Now, Evie not only has to face paranormal problems but also problems with Lend which is just plain heartbreaking and made me tear up quite often. I love those two together but Evie has to learn what it means to have someone to trust.
A new character is introduced to which Evie finds a connection she can share with no one else….
Loved loved LOVED this book, I adore Evie, I’m in love with Lend and I love this unique and fresh world and plot line. Nothing ever is boring! But what I adore most is the incredibly writing style which is unique and can’t be compared to anything out there. I found myself smiling so often about phrases and choice of words. It is as you’d read a journal from a Teenie in the perfect way a Teenie would write it herself. It is perfect, simply put like this, it’s perfect in a funny and genuine way! Evie has to find her place in the world, she has to find herself and she has to learn not only to trust herself but also the people that love her.
I can only tell you that you shouldn’t be afraid of this second book, you won’t be disappointed, it is as awesome as Paranormalcy and the ending is wonderfully perfect. No evil cliffhanger that makes your heart ache, a perfect second book in a wonderful and perfect series!
