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.

I don’t think there’s a more fun and/or endearing character out there than Evie. From the moment this book began, I had a smile on my face. She’s cute, funny, and vulnerable..but she can kick still kick butt when butt-kicking is needed. She’s become almost like a little sister who I watch with amusement at the things she comes up with. In turn, I also feel very protective over her when bad things happen or she’s hurt. I don’t think any other character out there has made me feel this way. Then there’s Lend. Gosh, that boy is bleeping perfect!! I just want to steal him away for myself! But I couldn’t do that to our Evie. Kiersten White knows how to write some romance!

I liked how the problems arising throughout the book threw me off of the actual immediate danger Evie was facing. The pace was a little slow to start, but it picked up about halfway through. It was also around then that I figured out who the bad guy was. I think what really saved this book from being just ok for me, were those scenes with Evie and Lend. I like them so much that I didn’t mind the other things. Evie and Lend are also the reason this book is rated four stars instead of three.

Overall, Supernaturally was a good sequel! I didn’t love it as much as Paranormalcy, but still really liked it. A lot of the things that happen in it are a setup for the final book, Endlessly, so I’m excited to see what will happen in the end.

    I can’t wait to get this one :]
    It’ll probably take quite some time since my library moves like a snail, but I look forward to it all the same.

    And seriously, Evie is about the most awesometastical heroine I’ve read about in a while!

    I felt the same way about Evie in Paranormalcy and am so glad to hear that her character still is able to make you smile and kicks butt. I just have to get this one soon. Terrific review!

    I actually liked this one more than Paranormalcy, it took me a lot longer to get into Paranormalcy than this one, but like you I was also able to figure out who the bad guy was pretty early into the book. I agree that Lend is perfect and I love Evie too, she’s such a fun character. Great review!! :D

    Just added this series to my list TBR! Evie sounds like m kind of girl!  Since I’m caught up on the other series I read (after I finish my current reads!) this would be a great place to start!
