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. -Goodreads
I really enjoyed reading Paranormalcy last year; it was such a good read! I was really excited to finally get the chance to read Supernaturally. 

Evie is such a great character. We do see a bit of a different side of her in this book. While she still has her funny moments, she doesn’t really have a lot of spark this time around. I can totally understand this, however. She’s confused and trying to figure out her place in the world. She did do some things that had me rolling though, so I was glad to see that all of her personality hadn’t disappeared.

Unfortunately, we don’t get to see Lend nearly as much in this book. I have to say; I missed him, and really wanted to see more from his and Evie’s relationship. The parts were they were together were great, but I was really hoping to see more. We see all the previous characters again as well: Raquel, David, and Arianna, to name a few. I really liked Arianna’s character more in this book; we see a different side of her as well.

We are also introduced to a new character, Jack. I really liked Jack, he was super funny. After that ending, I’m really looking forward to seeing where the author takes his character.

The writing started off a bit slow in the beginning, but quickly picked up close to the middle. There were some things in the story that were left unanswered, and I’m hoping we will find out what happens in the next book.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I think I liked Paranormalcy a bit more, but this was still a good read. I’m really looking forward to the next book, Endlessly, to see what happens next!

Happy Reading!

  1. Not much Lend? Bah! He was the best part of Paranormalcy. I still can't decide if I like Evie or not. Hope Supernaturally doesn't have too much bleeping because it almost did my head in last time. Glad you enjoyed it though!

  2. Aw, shame about Lend! I loved him in Paranormalcy :). Still, glad you enjoyed this one, I can't wait to read it! Evie was one of my favourite characters of the year, so it'll be great to read about her again. Thanks for the review! :)

  3. Great review! Can't wait to read this one! Reading lots of positive reviews! Hope to get to this one soon! Having a hard time remembering some of the Paranormalcy details, so hoping that it will come back to me once I start Supernaturally!

  5. This book was pretty awesome! Evie was going through some tough times and I felt so bad for her. And Lend! Why wasn't there more of that guy??!! :)

    Great review!

  7. I agree -- I think Paranormalcy is still my fave, but this was a fun read. It's nice to see Evie grow as a character, though I frowned disapprovingly at some of her decisions in this book. Here's hoping for more Lend action in book 3!

  8. I'm bummed Lend is missing for so much of the beginning of the book, he was so much fun to read in Paranormalcy! Still really excited for this one though, thanks for the review Christy!

  9. I think I enjoyed Paranormalcy more than Supernaturally too. But of course, I liked this one too. I liked Jack too ;)

  10. I can't wait for this book too! I'm sad to hear there isn't as much Lend in this book -- his relationship with Evie was one of the highlights of the previous one, to me :)

  11. Yeah, I was sad to see so little of Lend. Jack was a good character (though I really wanted to smack him around sometimes), especially good for conflict and throwing Evie into crazy situations. Great review!

  12. I liked Paranormalcy more too-there was more action instead of the "normalness" of the start of this book.

  13. I'm dying to read this one, but I've seen a few reviews where they say they like the first one better. Less lend? That's so sad.

  14. This is a series that I have been dying to read. I don't know why I haven't picked up Paranormalcy yet... Great review, it is hard when you really enjoy the first book in a series. It is a lot of for the second book to live up to!
