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 Rating: 4 / 5

My Thoughts:

Evie has left the Agency to have the 'normal' life she craved.  She starts noticing that there are some odd beasties around town. When her old boss, Raquel, approaches her with an offer to do some side work for the agency, she decides to give it a shot. Paired up with Jack, Evie once again finds herself among the fae.

I loved Supernaturally, especially Evie's kick-ass character and attitude. With Evie living a normal life in the beginning, I missed that action from Paranormalcy so found this suffered a slow start. She discovers that the normal life is not that exciting and realizes that she won't ever be free of the supernatural world.  Jack was a great addition, adding many fun times for Evie. With Lend being away at school, we don't see him much and Evie has to hide her work (and Jack) from him.  Kiersten's witty writing keeps the story fun, even in the slow times.

It was the last third of the book that was what I had hoped for. We learn a lot about Evie, the fae, and the big twist! Oh the evil fae, I love how this sets up the last book of the trilogy! If you liked the mischievous Reth, you will fall in love with Jack. The ending was not predictable and leaves you NEEDING the next book now!


  1. totally agree with you about Lend away but love the big twist and Jack ;)

  2. Yay! I can't wait to read these books. I probably wait till the third one is out and buy them all. ;) ooh a evil fae? Looking forward reading these books!

  3. I read the first one, and although it was good, Evie annoyed me to near death. I decided not to pursue this series further for fear of jumping into the novel itself and pulling her hair/punching her because she's so annoying. XD

  4. I can't wait to read this! I adored Paranormalcy so really looking forward to reading the sequel. Great review,t hanks!

  5. I didn't exactly fall in love with Jack but still really liked the book. Can't wait to see how it all ends in the third book.

  6. I can't wait to read this one, even more after reading your review! I'm happy to hear the last part of the book was more exciting.

  7. I still have to get to Paranormalcy one of these days but from okbo/Karoline's comments, it might turn out to be like Nightshade for me, lol. (You know what I mean ;)
