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 paranormals’ 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.
All the hype was dead on. Paranormalcy took me by surprise and hasn't let go.
Evie has lived at The Center most of her life. Well, the part that matters anyways. Her job is to bag and tag Supernaturals, and she does this without question. Going to High School, being a normal girl and possessing a lockers are things that exist only in her wildest dreams. One day the alarm sounds, and what she finds will change her life. A shimmering, aqua like boy who can change into whatever person in the world he want to. No one has ever known anything like him, then again no one has heard of anything like her. On the other hand Supernaturals are disappearing at a rapid pace, will Evie discover the secret that lingers in the Eyes Like Melting Snow, or will the Supernatural world perish forever?
Oh Darn, I found another people! And this one is alive!! (Beep, Beep, Beep...) All the hype was correct, Paranormalcy is one NOT to be missed! With a gorgeous cover and a fantastic plot there is nothing more in this world that you could possibly wish for.
Intriguing and adorable characters? Check. A boy that only appears on your wildest dreams? Check. Characters growing as the story goes on? Check. Check. Check. Evie is like the cutest thing ever. I love her, which is very strange since my favorite characters are usually kick butt sarcastic I-could-kill-you-if-I-wanted-to girls (Rose Hatthaway, Cat, among others). Evie likes pink, she wants badly to attend school, and she loves cheesy TV shows. But she has an unique quality to her that makes you love her instead of wanting to kill her. Oh, and her best friend is a mermaid! How freaking cool is that?!
In this book every character counts, no one is there just to fill up space, they all have a purpose, and they all leave a print in your mind. Also, double brownie points for being unique!
Lend is the boy that got away. At least in my case. He is sweet, while still depicting an image of riding in the wild side, or at least reaally wanting to. Their relationship is one you hardly come by on normal occasions and when you do you just don't want it to stop.
Other than romance and amazing characters, the story has action, and plot twists that I didn't see coming. Can somebody say Hurray?
I cannot wait for the next book, thee will be a next book right? I want to get back to Evie, and she what crazy thing is she going to do next.
Write Kiersten, write!
