“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.”

In this sequel to Paranormalcy, Evie is trying to adapt to a regular life and to spending less time with Lend, as he’s gone to college now. Because of this, her routine at the beginning of the book was a bit boring. But the pace picked up, and then Evie was trying to juggle her normal life and her exciting life.
This book also raised several questions that were not answered in it. I’m not going to spoil anything, but those questions really bugged me, and I hope they are answered in the next book. The highest point of the book was Steve’s special appearance (sorry, that was a bit spoilery), which I absolutely loved.
As for plot development, some of it was really predictable, but as a whole, it was still really entertaining. The pace was nice, and there were several funny lines (‘scared bleepless’ comes to mind). As for Evie, I didn’t really agree with several of her decisions, especially regarding her attempt at having a normal life. It was a bit sad to see how those decisions played out (not because of Evie, but because of the other characters involved).
Overall, it was a very nice read, and I’ll definitely be finishing this series.
Rating: 4 out of 5
