Book description:

Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, 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 still. Normal. Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. So much for normal.

My Review:

This story is unlike anything I've ever read or anything that I've seen on TV; it is very unique. Evie was found when she was eight years old wandering in a graveyard where she stumbled upon a vampire that the IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency) was in the middle of "tagging". Because she could see threw there "glamor" they were forced to raise her in order to keep her quite. She's now 16 and works for the IPCA bagging and tagging other paranormals such as, hags, werewolfs, and vampires. One night a boy, (water boy, aka Lend), breaks into the IPCA; Evie taszers him and puts a tracker on his ankle. They lock him up and try to find out why he was there and who he works for. Paranormals start dropping like flies and the IPCA has no idea what is going on. Water boy has his own theory but he will not open up to anyone about the prophecy he knows. The killing spree keeps getting worse and the IPCA goes on lock down. Two days later, everything changes for Evie, her world will never be the same.

This book goes right into action when you first open it, it has its funny parts, and sweet parts and so fourth. It's not that bad of abook at all, once you get use to everything about it, because the plot is the most weirdest one ever. It is fresh and a short read. The second book Supernaturally comes out the fall of next year.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

This is a very clean book, there is some kissing scenes in it but nothing bad. There's really no language in it, unless you want to count *bleep* or when they are referring to Hell.
