It's Book Review Time! (1) Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

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.

Paranormalcy was lotsa fun, a book you just want to keep reading and reading and reading until it's gone.
Evie has a great voice, she's a bit flighty, loves her soap operas and all things pink (like her taser) and will not hesitate to bring down a paranormal with it before tagging, bagging and reading it it's rights. She's pretty badass, but at the same time she's just a sixteen year old girl who wants to be a normal sixteen year old girl. She may be able to handle herself and kick some butt in some areas of her life but White created a well-rounded character in Evie: she is pretty damn terrified of her ex, Reth, a Faerie who is essentially stalking her and there's nothing she can do about it. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, right?
There was a great mix of paranormal creatures here and Kiersten added her own spin to the regular myths about them. I love it when writers come at known stories from new angles.

I really enjoyed reading Kiersten White's debut novel and look forward to more from her.

Thanks for commenting! I love comments. I seriously do. Except when they're spam. I get a lot of spam here so, unfortunately, I had to add word verification to stamp that out. But I don't want to stamp out YOUR comment, so keep them coming, okay?
