Genre: YA Paranormal
Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie’s always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, 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 still. Normal.
Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.
5 reasons why I love paranormalcy:
1) Paranormal Overload!!! Fairies, wolves, vampires, mermaid, shapeshifter. Anything you want, you can find it there.
2) Evie is a very likable and easy to relate to. She is fun and hilarious, sassy and strong. I love her sarcastic and witty remarks. She is immature and whines a lot ( I will if im in her place). She's tough and soft and vulnerable at the same time.
3) I love the adventure in Evie's ''job'' at IPCA. The bag and tag thingy, I find it amusing.
4( Of course, Reth and Lend.
Lend is such a sweet sweet guy. He will do anything for Evie.
Reth, oh a mysterious and arrogant fairy. He is such a jerk. I do have a love-hate relationship with him, but hey fairies are supposed to be sly, cunning and wicked right? So in the end, he is OK in my book.
5) And finally, the plot! Eventhough it is paranormal, it is refreshing to read once in a while a story that is mysterious but still on the light side. I can't stop myself from flipping the pages til the end. It is a fast pace read that will keep you entertained.
