Synopsis:



Review:

I read Paranormalcy when it came out and really enjoyed it a lot.  I really connected with Evie and thought that she was a bleeping great heroine!  In this book we get to see a whole different side to Evie.  In Paranormalcy Evie was witty and funny ALL the time, in Supernaturally not so much.  There is much confusion in Evie's life in this book, she's still trying to figure out her place in the world.

One thing that kind of detracted from the book for me was the lack of Lend.  I REALLY enjoyed Lend in Paranormalcy.  He's not your typical love interest and was someone Evie shouldn't have been remotely attracted to, a classic case of opposites attract.  The parts of the book where Lend was around I saw Evie and Lend's relationship grow but I just wish that we got to see more of it through out the book.

A lot of the characters from Paranormalcy are back for Supernaturally too!  Arianna, Raquel, and David just to name three.  Plus, there is the addition of a new character...Jack.  What we lost humor wise through Evie we got back through Jack.  I was laughing out loud a LOT.

I did think that Supernaturally did start off a little bit slow but it didn't take very long for things to pick up the pace.  I thought that there were some questions that went unanswered at certain points in the book.  I'm hoping that these questions get answered in the next book.

Overall, I am really happy that I read Supernaturally.  I'm going to be going out and getting myself a finished copy shortly.  Happy reading everyone!
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.

Review:

I read Paranormalcy right away when it came out last year and I really loved it a lot.  I thought that Evie was a bleeping awesome heroine in that book!  In Supernaturally, we see a very different side of Evie.  In Paranormalcy Evie was full of humor and the Evie we see in Supernaturally is questioning her place in the world.  I am really watching Evie grow through this series!

One thing that detracted from the book for me was the lack of Lend.  I LOVED Lend in Paranormalcy.  It was a classic case of opposites attract for Evie and Lend.  They should NOT have been attracted to one another at all.  I did like watching Evie and Lend's interactions when Lend did make an appearance, I was just hoping for more.

Many of the characters from Paranormalcy make it back for the second book as well!  Arianna, Raquel and David just to name three are back in Supernaturally.  There is also the addition of Jack in Supernaturally.  What we missed out on humor wise from Evie we got back from Jack.  I laughed out loud a lot through out this book.

I thought that Supernaturally started off a little bit slow but once things started happening the pace picked up REAL fast.  For me there were some questions that went unanswered through the course of reading Supernaturally.  I'm hoping they get answered in the next book.

Overall, I think that this was a really good read.  I still think that I like Paranormalcy just a titch more though.  I'm still going to go out and get a finished copy though.  Happy reading everyone!
