Summary from Goodreads:

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.

Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

Any other day, when she was working for IPCA Evie would be dying to go to high school, have friends, get a locker and be normal.
Finally she gets all of it, her dreams are no longer dreams and she goes to high school gets a few friends and a locker!
And she hates all of it. Where are the catfights, the conspiracy between students, the wild parties or masquerades, the secret loves and affairs?!
It's all so boring, so... normal.

The only good thing is that she has a boyfriend, Lend, a shape-shifter/water-boy that now goes to college and from whom she keeps a huge secret: at the end of the first book she discovers that Lend is immortal meaning that the day he finds out everything will be over since she is mortal.
Or something like that. In fact, she is an Empty One, created for a highly purpose (which we don't know yet) that includes she can suck the souls of other supernatural beings.

So as soon as Raquel (her ex-boss from IPCA and her only mother figure) comes to visit her and asks her to work for IPCA as a freelance employee Evie can't be happier. And once again her life is full of adventures which includes not only her teenager live but also Reth (faerie ex-boyfriend) and Jack (a crazy guy with a cool ability that works for IPCA too). Oh, and don't forget the fact that she tries to her work secret from Lend... yes, another secret, not very wise...

In my opinion, this book was better than the first one. Not only the story is well written but also the twists and the ending are better. Evie's story is really interesting once you get to know it and her relationship with her now-in-coma sister, Vivian is touchy. The only thing that I didn't like to much is that in this book Evie is also very selfish... but that doesn't change the fact that I enjoyed this book a lot more. And yes, I totally and completely love the cover, is gorgeous!!!

  1. Aargh, your review reminds I'll definitely need a copy of this one soon. :D I hope there's lots of Reth in this one, because even though I like Lend, I'm quite a Reth-girl. :D

  2. Thanks for the review. Honestly, I think Paranormalcy left some empty space in my heart, I hope this second book fulfill it, because the story is good, and also are the characters. I felt Evie a little selfish in book 1 too. I really hope to get one copy soon. =)
