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
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!
