Series: Paranormalcy #2 (Review of #1)
Summary: (Spoilers. Highlight to view) 
A lot has changed in the six months since Evie escaped from the International Paranormal Containment Agency with her shape-shifter boyfriend, Lend. She finally has the blissfully normal life she’s always dreamed of, including:
1) A real live high school
2) A perfectly ordinary after-school job
3) Her very own locker (and by the way, rusted metal is every bit as awesome as she imagined)


But Evie’s not-so-normal past keeps creeping up on her...and things get pretty complicated when you factor in:
1) A centuries-old, seriously decaying vampire stalker
2) A crazy faerie ex-boyfriend who is the perpetual bearer of really bad news
3) A major battle brewing between the faerie courts where the prize in question happens to be...Evie herself.


So much for normal.
Review: This review will hopefully be spoiler-free, but I cannot promise that I won't accidentally say something that you consider a spoiler. You've been warned.

I was SO excited to have a chance to re-enter the world of Evie, Lend, and my other paranormal friends. And Supernaturally didn't disappoint. Kiersten's HI-larious characters shine! Evie has the best personality ever. I want to be her best friend.

This book manages to avoid A LOT of those perilous sequel-pitfalls. There's virtually NO sequel-phase in Evie and Lend's relationship (just a little, and it's warranted), and Kiersten creates action and conflict WITHOUT creating unnecessary drama. Brilliant!

Be warned though, this is certainly more of a learning book, and less of an action book. It doesn't have the same kick-boom-POW that Paranormalcy had. But even though the pace is slower, this book is AWESOME because you learn A TON. All those questions you wanted answers in book #1? They got answered. But don't be thinking that's the end! There's a WHOLE LOT more questions you'll be craving answers for after you finish Supernaturally.

If you're a fan of Paranormalcy then you'll be a big fan of Supernaturally.

If you're not a fan of Paranormalcy, then you haven't read it yet. You should go do that.

  4. I read this novel and loved it but I get what you are saying about it being a learning book. Evie certainly does find out a lot about who she is. Thanks for the review!
