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.

A Pseudoscientific Breakdown of What
I Love About Paranormalcy and Its Sequel, Supernaturally:
- Evie is not afraid to be a girly girl, but she still kicks butt
- Not afraid to Tase a vamp or two
- Does so with a pink, bejeweled Taser she’s named “Tasey”
- Lend never misuses his supernatural abilities
- The guy can change his looks – look how rowdy he could get with that skill?
- Bank robberies, general thievery
- Intimate moments with supermodels
- World destruction, etc.
- But he doesn't, so kudos
- It offers something to everyone who likes paranormal reads
- Mermaid-like things
- And many, many more, some of which you’ve never heard of
- All Evie really wants to do is put down the Taser, kick back her feet, and watch her favorite teen soap opera, Easton Heights
- Which is also what I want to do after a long day of work
- Vampire Diaries
- Pretty Little Liars
- Switched at Birth
- Nine Lives of Chloe King
- I realize this list is embarrassingly long, k?
- Evie says “bleep” instead of curse words
- This is hilarious
