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.
My grade: B+
What I liked about the book: I liked Evie even more in this book than in Paranormalcy. I liked her struggle to be happy with the normal life she'd always been craving, and I loved her relationship with the comatose Vivian.
What I didn't like so much: I'm not so sure about the mystery plot. I felt like the stakes weren't high enough, not like they were in Paranormalcy, and the villain reveal at the end wasn't as surprising as it could have been. I think it would have been better if the reveal had been earlier in the book and then have Evie deal with something else the villain does. I don't know. I just felt kind of let down by the ending.
Best scene/favorite moment: [Spoiler Alert] The scene where Evie and Jack torch the Queen's boat. I thought the description in that scene were amazing!
Would I read the next book? I think so. Not really on my immediate TBR, but I'll try to buy the next book soon.
What about you, did you read the book? What did you think of it?
