Overall: 5 Stars
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.
Paranormalcy was easily one of my favourite novels released in 2010, so when I began reading Supernaturally, it was only natural that I would have high expectations. I’m so glad to say I wasn’t disappointed one bit! Once again, Kiersten White delivers in the best possible way to give us another bleeping awesome novel!
While I didn’t think the plot was necessarily as strong as its predecessor, Supernaturally makes up for it with its ever fun and light writing style that I completely adore. And, of course, there was Jack, a new character introduced to us. Now, before you all start groaning about another love interest, I’m going to point out that he isn’t one. Instead, Jack keeps Evie (and us!) on our toes with his love for causing a bit of mischief and becomes a friend for her when she needs one. And speaking of Evie, she may have had good intentions but she did make some misguided decisions in the novel. But, I can forgive her this time as she learned from them… which is important in my books!
I did wish there was a bit more of Lend in the novel, but I still think of him as an absolute sweetheart. Evie might be willing to keep a secret or two from him, but I was silently pleading with her to share the burden of what she had learned because you just know that he would understand with his kind, caring ways. And Reth fans! I’m sure you’ll be glad to know that he’s back and willing to share some of his knowledge of Evie’s mysterious heritage that has relations to the faeries. You may just be taken by surprise with what you learn!
If you haven’t even read Paranormalcy yet, seriously, what are still waiting for? These novels are like a breath of fresh air in a genre that can become overcrowded with too many supernatural lookalikes. And just as with Paranormalcy, I have fallen in love with Supernaturally too! Now there’s just the anxious year-long wait to see how the trilogy will finish with Endlessly…
