Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.
But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.

There was tons of hype for this book, and my expectations were set pretty high. I'm incredibly glad to say that I was in no way disappointed. Paranormalcy is plain awesome. The story sucked me in and spat me back out, leaving me breathless with anticipation for a sequel.
There are no superfluous characters here. Every person or creature is developed and serves a major purpose. I couldn't help but become attached to all of them. Even the annoying characters added to the fantastic plot. For the first time in a long time, I was not able to predict anything about the story. It was amazing to be dragged along head first with no idea where the tale was heading.
Lend was amazing, and I fell in love with him the moment he entered the story. I loved that he was so unique, unlike any of the typical vampire or werewolf love interests found in teen books today. It was fascinating to learn about both his personality and his supernatural capabilities.
Overall, Paranormalcy was a gripping, original tale. Everything about it was captivating. I spent an entire day devouring White's words and squealing when I crossed a romantic scene. If you haven't already, I recommend that you read it. NOW.
