Review: Evelyn is still trying to find her place in the world. She thought she was all set going to high school and rooming with Arianna, a vampire, as she worked at a diner that served mostly other paranormals. She had her boyfriend, Lend, who is half human and half immortal and she's offered her job back at IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency). All this while she's trying to survive real high school. However, she refuses to work with fairies and gets teamed up with Jack, a young human who has learned how to work the Faerie Paths. Strange things start happening to her, well, stranger than her already strange life. It seems that paranormals are trying to kill her at every turn. Someone wants her dead and she has no idea who. She tries to survive as she searches for the truth of who she is and where she came from. She wants to know why she can see through the glamour of the other paranormals and why she is the only one (besides Vivian) who can suck the souls out of other creatures. Is she a monster?

Once again, Kiersten White amazes her readers. This one wasn't quite as awesome as the first one but still very good. I felt that the climax wasn't quite as climactic as I was expecting. I was also annoyed b/c Evie wouldn't listen to me as I was screaming at her who the bad guy was long before she figured it out. I love that there is no profanity in these books. This is the sequel to Paranormalcy. In that book, Evie's best friend was Lish, a mermaid. She could only hear her speak through a computer and it was programmed to "bleep" out the cuss words so Evie learned to say bleep instead of cussing. I love it! This was a great book and I cannot wait for the third one to come out!! :)

Author: The following bio comes from the author's blog: "Kiersten White is the NYT Bestselling author of Paranormalcy.  She has one tall husband and two small children and lives near the ocean, where her life is perfectly normal.  This abundance of normal led her to a fascination with all things paranormal, including but not limited to vampires, faeries, and pop culture."
