Blog Tour- Supernaturally by Kiersten White

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.

Kiersten White is the NYT Bestselling author of Paranormalcy. She has one tall husband and two small children and lives near the ocean, where her life is perfectly normal. This abundance of normal led her to a fascination with all things paranormal, including but not limited to vampires, faeries, and pop culture. Visit her at http://kierstenwhite.com.

IPCA Employee Handbook Section 3.2.78

Level Three
Known Entity (Human Mimicry), Ancient Origin, Separate Evolution

Immortality: Lifespan tied to trees
Breeding: Anecdotal (likely false) evidence; no confirmed cases
Appearance: Young women with pale skin, green eyes, and hair in various shades of brown. Always in odd, anachronistic clothing, usually simple flowing dresses in shades of green.
Myths: Most myths revolve around Dryads being tied to or loyal to specific Ancient Greek deities which (as far as this agency has been able to determine) do not exist. (Please see, Appendices: Ancient Religions, Theories of Faeries and, Section 35.64.)
Facts: Dryads are shy and elusive creatures, tied to a specific area geographically. Deforestation has lowered their numbers, though an accurate count has never been made. Dryads transported to the IPCA Natural Preserve did not thrive until their trees were transported as well. Dryads have been found in all areas of the world that have trees.
Dangers: Dryads become enraged when their trees are threatened. Additionally, dryads’ glamours are very beautiful, and they have been known to use their physical beauty as manipulation.
Information contributed by Evelyn age 15 (please see Appendices Catalog, Section 7, for details on glamour-piercing abilities), transcribed from the original audio: Dryads’ glamours are always super pretty. I want to see a paranormal who has an ugly glamour, you know? Wait. I guess hags do. Anyway. So you’ll see a really beautiful woman, maybe in her early twenties, as the glamour. I see a really beautiful woman, with that smooth, ageless look like faeries. Only instead of green eyes, they usually have green hair and green skin. The older ones (I think) have browner skin, sometimes even with cracks like bark. But they’re still pretty. Just…greener. Like trees. I wouldn’t want to date a tree, but they’re still really pretty.

Wasn't that fun? I'm so honored to have been asked to be a part of this blog tour and it'll be continuing over at one of my favorite blogs, Steph Su Reads, on Thursday, Oct. 6 where another paranormal creature from the Paranormalcy series will be featured. You can check out Kiersten's blog for links to the other blog tour posts. But not only is there a blog tour, but Kiersten is heading out on the road for some physical tour stops- go here to find out more info!
