Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy #1)

Standard

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)

“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 paranormal 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.”

– Taken from Goodreads

This book had been sitting in my to-read shelf for ages. I only decided to read it as it fit a challenge and I found someone to read it with me. Right at the first scene, I was asking myself why on earth didn’t I read it before. I absolutely loved the first scene. Evie’s had a great attitude and sense of humor, and that scene was a great way to introduce the world building, which I found quite peculiar.

It also had a fast pace and some interesting characters. I was not happy with some of the author’s choices, but they made for a very touching moment at the end. While I had some issues with the choices made, I was really pleased with the fact that I couldn’t predict the twists nor the answers that were given by the end of this book. Some of the characters really annoyed me (why, yes Reth, I am looking at you).

Some of the choices that were made in this book have not yet entirely unraveled, which makes me really want to read the next book. Furthermore, there also quite a few questions that I want to see answered. As for the writing style, I really liked it. This book also had one scene that made laugh out loud, which is quite unusual for me.

I will definitely be reading the next book, I just don’t know when I’ll be able to read it.
