Summary from Goodreads.com:
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 Evie wants is to be normal. To have the normal life of a sixteen year old girl, to go to school, have a locker, a driver’s license, and friends. And, most importantly, to not be alone. Instead, Evie is an employee of IPCA, (also known as International Paranormal Containment Agency), where she bags and tags paranormal creatures of all kinds. She has a rare gift, she can see through any paranormal’s glamour, and see their true selves. Her ex-boyfriend is a faerie that's trying to lure her to his world, and she's finding herself falling in love with an unknown paranormal shape-shifter that broke into IPCA with his own agenda. Will her life ever be normal???
I picked up Paranormalcy at the library because of the good reviews it has gotten. Boy am I glad I did! This book was hilarious! It is a great mixture of action, comedy and romance. I really enjoyed it!
I really liked Evie's character. She was funny, but also kick-butt. She definitely knew how to take care of business. She's so funny when she talks about her beloved pink with rhinestones Taser, affectionately known as, Tasey. lol I really felt bad for her, she was so lonely. I can't imagine a life like that.
Lend, the shape-shifter, was also awesome! Sweet and charming, and he wasn't all macho like most hero's are. He was actually scared in some parts. That was a nice change. Such a sweet couple!
The plot of the book was really great. Definitely not what I was expecting, and it was a nice change.
If you like paranormal books, you will really enjoy this one. I know I did! I can't wait to read book 2, Supernaturally, which the cover was just released for. GORGEOUS!
