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.
I know you all are sick of me going on about how amazing Paranormalcy is. Unfortunately this review will be probably being the last thing I get to mention about the book because well it’s out and I’ve read it. :( This makes me really sad so I will make this the most inspirational review forcing everyone who read this post to drop what they are doing to go and buy the book.
If I rated this book, which I don't do, it would be infinity and beyond.(which is why I really shouldn't rate because all of them would be infinity and beyond)
How can I describe this book? Flat-out gripping will have to do. So I thought this book was the paranormal guy meets a human girl and they fall in love. I love that kind of story, so if that’s what it was I would have been content and happy. Thing is, it wasn’t like that at all. Sure there was the falling in love but there is more to it than that.
Evie is a paranormal butt-kicking bag and tagger, heroine extraordinaire. She works for IPCA an organization that controls the paranormals. They keep Evie around because she has a gift, she can see through paranormal glamour. Since she was eight she has worked for IPCA, never once has she doubted there intentions. That is until she catches Lend, a shape shifting hottie, breaking in to the center. Fascinated by his rare gift she can’t help but visit him. Slowly he opens her eyes so she can see clearly what is going on. It doesn’t help that something or someone is killing all the paranormals while the center is sitting doing nothing about it. Or that her ex is trying to capture her, and steal her heart, her soul while yet again they brush it off as nothing. Evie needs to figure out what and who she is before her world comes crashing down on her.
Kiersten White’s debut book literally consumed my every thought for the last couple of months and now that I have read it , it’s all I can do to not to think about it. Take flat-out gripping action, a witty spark of humor, a dash of a love, and some serious soul searching and you have capture Paranormalcy to a T. :)
A book worth the pain-staking wait, trust me I know. Please do yourself a favor and go buy it, if you haven’t already.
