Supernaturally by Kiersten White
Title: Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2)
Author: Kiersten White
Genre: YA Paranormal
Premise: "Sixteen-year-old Evie thinks she has left the International Paranormal Containment Agency, and her own paranormal activities, behind her when she is recruited to help at the Agency, where she discovers more about the dark faerie prophecy that threatens her future" (King County Library System).
Opinions: In this book, Evie gets to enjoy the life she has always wanted--a locker, a regular job, high school, and a boy friend. What she didn't count on were all the lows that come as part and package with her new life. First there is her ex love - the faerie formerly known as Reth - who swears he's watching over and protecting her. Then there's Jack, a human boy raised by Faeries, but now working for the IPCA, who loves to play tricks and use the Faerie Paths for his own purposes. Evie also is struggling with the fact that her boyfriend, Lend, is now in college at Georgetown several hours away and she only sees him on weekends.
Though, I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the first one, I still LOVED it. It was intriguing to see Evie develop and trying to fight her way through a new life while still keeping one foot in her old life. This story was fascinating in its complexities and underlying stories and fears surrounding Evie's choices. The most intriguing character of all for me was Evie's roommate, the fashion designing vampire, video game zombie slayer, Arianna.
