“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 been 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.”

After reading Paranoramlcy, which I loved, I really couldn’t wait to dig into Supernaturally.  I’m glad I didn’t have to!  Unfortunately I will have to wait a few months for Endlessly to be released, but I’m positive to will be worth the wait!

Supernaturally held all the wonder that Paranormalcy did; but it added an ounce of seduction, a handful of enchantment, tablespoon of wittiness, and a pinch of heartbreak.  This radiant book sent my emotions wild as I laughed and cried, there were even moments that I was "bleeping" under my breath.

Kiersten White’s world of paranormals continues to be dangerous, beautiful, intuitive, and highly addicting as the stakes have risen higher than ever.  This one was a little less adventurous and a little darker as powers and emotions threaten to consume all.   It will make you wonder if all hope is lost.

As Evie’s continues to learn how to live a normal life she becomes eager and determined to find herself and the answer to her problems but in the end she risks losing herself entirely.  Evie does continue to be the girl that we all love- spunky, flirty, witty, stubborn, and unrelenting. But she does run into some major issues that she has to learn to cope with and she isn’t the most patient person.

Lend is away at college and he comes home to visit on the weekends unless he is worried about Evie, which happens a lot.  Lend continues to be the uber sweet, compassionate, willful, and protective boyfriend.  I will say it was nice to see him build a backbone and not let anyone take him for granted.

I felt that like Paranormalcy, Supernaturally earned an A+, as it was wildly suspenseful, menacingly gorgeous, and entrancingly lustrous!  So far this has been a marvelous series and I’m confident that the next one will follow suit!

My Rating: 20/20
Originality: 5
Plot: 5
