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.

After how much I loved and raved about Paranormalcy, I was eager to read Supernaturally, but was a bit disappointed at how uneventful it was. We join Evie 6 months after Paranormalcy ends to see how she’s enjoying a “normal life” and she ends up spicing things up by working with the IPCA again. There’s also a new character, Jack, who stirs things up a bit and has a key role in this book. Link is barely in this book, which means Evie barely interacts with him, and most of the book is just filled with her thoughts and mundane tasks.

Although Kiersten still keeps up with her excellent writing, Supernaturally is a very lackluster sequel to such an astounding debut novel. I found Evie to be a bit whiney and narrow-minded in this book too, but she still has her wit and humor, so it’s not like I hated her or anything. I think it’s just that there’s barely any action or drama in this book to fuel the fire that it took me a longer time to finish this book than the first. We do find out more about Evie’s past and she still battles with her power and destiny, but those revelations are few and far between.

I’m hoping for a killer ending to this series to pull me back in. I definitely didn’t hate the book, it has its merits, but it can’t beat the first.

About Kiersten White

The New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy (Paranormalcy, Supernaturally, and Endlessly) is available now. Mind Games and its sequel Perfect Lies are also out, staring at you from a bookshelf. Intensely. An Egyptian mythology-based standalone, The Chaos of Stars, will keep you company on cold, dark nights. And Illusions of Fate, a dreamy historical fantasy, wants to be your new boyfriend. It’s a really good kisser.

    I haven’t read Paranormalcy yet – I do have a copy of both Para and Supernormalcy – thanks Christmas! *lol* Yet I just haven’t gotten around to reading them yet, I’m not really sure why not…

    I think I need to get to it though – everyone loves them. I’m bummed to hear this isn’t as good as the first one though.

      Yea, I”m hoping the 3rd book is better bc this one just seemed like fluff to me. Still love Evie though!
