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.
I remember I was super excited to read Supernaturally when I finished Paranormalcy. However, when I bought the book I didn’t read it right away—it went to the bottom of my to be read list. When I finally got to the book, I was not that much excited anymore, and this book did not reach my expectations.
Evie now has a normal life—er, how normal can be when you date a paranormal and you are a paranormal yourself? Well, let’s just say her life is as normal as it could be. She’s attending regular school—she’s finally got her own locker!—, working shifts at Lend’s dad’s diner and hanging out with Lend whenever she can, now that he is in college, and with her best friend, a vampire. She also happens to have weird dreams in which she talks to her sister, Vivian. That doesn’t sound normal at all, but after all that happened to her in the first book, the girl deserves some normalcy.
Things get out of control when Raquel shows up saying she needs Evie’s help back at IPCA. The agency’s chaotic since Evie left, and they offer to pay her for her job this time. Against Lend’s will, Evie agrees on helping them and meets Jack, a normal boy who is somehow capable of going through the faeries doors. Of course, they get in trouble. Of course, Lend finds out and gets mad.
Supernaturally was an okay reading. I didn’t think it was as exciting as the first book, I was not surprised by it. It’s not bad, just… too plain for me, unfortunately, I expected much more. Evie’s past secret revealed in this book was too predictable. I’m still interested on reading Endlessly, but, again, once I get it, it’s going to the end of my endless to be read list, so who knows when I’m going to find out how this story ends.
My favorite quotes on this book are bellow.
No one is either good or bad, my love. We all have bits of both; we simply choose to align ourselves with whichever side has a stronger pull. My choice to get involved was motivated by a very sad, empty girl with eyes like streams of melting snow.
I’m here, or I’m nowhere, or I’m somewhere else entirely. It gives me a lot of time to think. But I never seem to get anywhere with it.
“Nothing. It’s stupid.”
“Well, duh. You, my darling sister, are stupid about a lot of things.”
I wouldn’t recommend going on a massive paranormal killing spree, though. It didn’t turn out so hot for me.
“And why would a leprechaun have a PhD?”
“I don’t know. Hanging out at the bottom of rainbows got boring, he was tired of clovers, pots of gold lost their sparkle for him—take your pick.”
Seriously, one of these times I was going to kill him by accident. Or on purpose. And I wasn’t going to be sorry.
What is it with paranormals and calling me “child?” I’d be seventeen in December. How about a nice “ma’am” or something?
“He’s cute when he whines.”
Who would want to go to a place called Georgetown, anyhow? Ridiculous. Now, I could understand your devastation if it had a distinguished name like, say, Jacktown, but as it is, you’ve overreacting. Why do you want to go to more school? I went once for a few hours and nearly lost my mind.
This would be easy if you’d put your busy little mind to it instead of worrying about grades and school and kissing. Especially kissing. Nasty thing that.
“The middle of what?”
“I don’t know, the middle of tomorrow and forever, the middle of life and death, the middle of normal and paranormal. Where we’ve always been.”
