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 always have this fear, irrational really, when reading a sequel, because usually something bad happens. Fortunately in the book a lot of bad stuff happens, there is just a lot of good that counter acts the bad.
- The world… I really love how White sets up the settings. They are all SO easy to see and beautiful really.
- The creatures- no other author has presented such unique characters. Like who knew what a Fossilgrim was? Or a Slyth for that matter? Totally original!
- Evie is just as kick-butt if not even more so now. Also: I was really able to relate to her stress and confusion (well not the snatch and grabbing of paranormals). She came out on new levels for me, deeper if that’s possible.
- I liked the ending, of course there are a billion twists and turns that Evie has to suffer through to get there BUT what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
- The Message: Your friends and family are ALWAYS the key to get back home. You are someone special. Sometimes you have to do what is RIGHT. The truth, though painful, is essential. Also: NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES EVER EVER EVER kiss a Fossilgrim.
- Random Rant: Evie faces some awful trials, like trial after trial after trial after- oh you get the point! The thing is she learns from them and they make her stronger
- The ever present humor of Mrs. White.
- Reth will forever be on this list… sorry me no likey!!
- That person that does all the bad stuff… yeah I KNEW IT WAS THEM!!!
This book offers a delightful giggle, a powerful punching message, and a world of amazement and awe. Let the record show that I wholly, entirely, fully, loved this book.
