Review: Supernaturally by Kiersten White

 Evie once spent her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency fighting all manner of paranormal beings. As a kick butt paranormal warrior, she often encountered the unknown but nothing ever prepared her for the horror that is high school. Once she dreamed of the things the usual teenager takes for granted like having a locker, playing school sports and of course that very first kiss. Now she’s found while the kiss may be all she dreamed of other parts of life may not.

After choosing a normal life over her once actively abnormal profession, Evie tries desperately to immerse herself in school, her part time job at a not so typical diner and her dreamy shape-shifting boyfriend Lend. However can a life of the everyday keep her happy when she’s always been so special?

When an offer to re-join the IPCA as a part-time consultant comes along Evie can’t help but be lured back in. Whether it’s her desire to re-connect with Raquel who has been the closest she’s ever had to a mother or her simple need to feel needed, Evie doesn’t know how to resist the pull of her former life. However things at the IPCA have changed since she left. The loss of a best friend and a complete restructuring have left the center different and yet still somehow the same as she jumps back into her former escapades.  Additionally a new boy has joined the team who can walk the faerie paths which luckily eliminates Evie’s need to work with the fey who seem to still have an unhealthy interest in her.

 Her new partner Jack may seem like the good-looking boy next-door but Evie soon finds he’s definitely one to watch.  Especially since Lend does not seem too thrilled about her returning to her old job or her new blonde haired and blue-eyed partner. And of course there is the little matter of Lend being immortal and not knowing it. Does Evie tell him and change everything they have or risk losing him forever by keeping it a secret? As author Kiersten White proves the course of true love does not always run smooth even if it is of the paranormal variety.

 In the end Evie soon finds that between keeping an off kilter teenage boy out of trouble, tracking random rogue paranormals and maintaining a normal relationship with a shapeshifter -who has time for homework? Once again Kiersten White has managed to put the normal back into paranormal by combining out of this world creatures in a everyday setting that makes her series both irresistibly readable and unique.

 As is the case with most highly successful debuts, readers often wonder will the sequel in a series live up to the hype? Author Kiersten White’s Supernaturally answers that question with a resounding yes. Quirky, fun and downright entertaining Supernaturally will keep teens reading long into the night. As the story of Evie continues readers will find they are falling in love all over again with a pink loving paranormal avenger.

  1. This does sound like a book teens will eat up. I’m not sure it’s for me, though.

    It’s been a great series but from what I know of your reading tastes…probably not. Although it is a great reluctant reader series for teens and we need as many of those as we can get! =)
