Book Summary:

The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its fate rests solely in Evie's hands.

Shannon's Thoughts:
Just when Evie thinks she can finally "be normal", she gets sucked right back into the paranormal world.  Evie finds out that the fate of paranormals rest on her shoulders.  On top of that, she is targeted by the new director at IPCA.  And she is NOT happy about it.  All Evie wants to do is go to school, get into Georgetown and hang out with Lend.  

I didn't enjoy Evie very much in this book.  I found her pretty selfish, immature and whiny.  She refuses to help the supernaturals because she is all bent out of shape that they assume she will help.  She feels like she isn't being given a choice and so she doesn't want to do it.  I find that a pretty immature reaction when it comes to saving lives.  Also, she is only concerned with Lend and her whole world rises and sets on him.  I didn't like that.  When he is in danger, she doesn't care about anything but him - even at the expense of others.   Also, Evie's views of faeries starts to get a little uncomfortable.  And where did the Lend of yester-Paranormalcy go?  He was so vanilla in this one.  Sigh. 

On the upshot, Jack is back in the picture and is a ton of fun.  He has the best lines. Reth also figures heavily and we get a lot more insight into him and his feelings for Evie.  He is a lot more complicated than I originally thought.  There is a ton of action and the ending wrapped things up pretty nice.  Over all, I thought this a fun series.  Light, fluffy and easy to read. 

Books in the series in the order they should be read:
1. Paranormalcy
2. Supernaturally
3. Endlessly

  1. I had about the same thoughts as you on this! Evie annoyed the crap out of me too, and same with Lend. He was boring and flat in this one. While I enjoyed this series (because like you said, it's fluffy and easy to read), I felt it lost some of its glamour in each book. :(

    1. Yes! Exactly! Sometimes I felt like it was trying too hard to be funny or witty or cutesy. I don't quite understand the hype. I mean, it wasn't bad - it was fun. But I wasn't blown away by it. I found it to be in the similar vein as the Hex Hall series, but I thought Hex Hall pulled it off better. Maybe that ruined it a bit for me?
