Supernaturally, by Kiersten White. Sequel to Paranormalcy. The summary:
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.I’ll admit I was a little disappointed by this one; I loved “Paranormalcy” so, so much, and I was hoping that “Supernaturally” would be just as good. I mean, it was fun to hang out with Evie (“oh bleep!”) and Lend again, and I’m definitely still keeping Evie on my list of literary bffs because she’s so snarky and down to earth. And I did enjoy meeting Jack and getting to getting to know Arianna (I think that’s her name) better. But I felt like this sequel didn’t have much substance--like it was all filler and the whole time was spent with Evie discovering stuff rather than things actually happening. It was kinda like getting cotton candy when all I really want is double-fudge mocha ice cream--fluffy and sweet but nowhere near as satisfying.
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.
Since school started a month ago, there hasn't been a single catfight. No wild parties where the cops got called, either. And as far as masquerade balls and moonlit rendezvous and passionate kisses in the hallways, well, all I can say is Easton Heights, my former favorite TV show, has taken a serious hit in my estimation.
I still think lockers are awesome, though.
