Supernaturally by Kiersten White

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."- summary from Amazon

Last year, I loved Paranormalcy and was so excited for the sequel. I'd planned to get the book from the library eventually but imagine my luck when I get an email from the awesome Emily saying I'd won a signed copy of Supernaturally! I was so happy.

OK, on to the book, it's pretty much as awesome as the previous book. I loved getting back into Evie's world, especially now that she's out of the Center and trying to live a normal life. Of course, with Evie, there's never going to be normal and eventually she's doing random assignments for IPCA so we get to see a huge variety of paranormal creatures. That's one of the things I love about this series- there's more than just the usual vampires, werewolves, and fairies (although just having the presence of all three in one book is still pretty awesome).

Evie still has that wonderful sarcastic voice that I loved and that made Paranormalcy such a compelling, fun read. These kinds of books tend to be very dark so it's refreshing to read something that's a bit more fun. There are some dark bits, particularly toward the end as Evie learns more about her past and what she can do. There's also the romance between Evie and Lend, which was really cute, but also had its own bumps in the road and obstacles to overcome, mainly regarding honesty.

Overall, this book is pretty awesome just like the first book and I can't wait to read the final book next year!!
