Paranormalcy #2. Author: Kiersten White.
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. (Published summary.)
Almost nothing happens in this book, especially on-screen. Evie goes to school and complains about how boring normal life is after all; she lies to Lend about any number of things and goes on a couple of dates with him; and gets nearly killed several times in company with Jack, but this is nothing new. I was quite disappointed with the loss of interest.
Sexual content: Some kissing, mostly off screen. One character in making fun of another professes love, begs for marriage, then instantly says that would take too long and suggests they “make sweet love here and now” (an offer which horrifies the other).
Language: 12 scatological terms
Violence: One fistfight with some biting. Character is nearly drowned by a kelpie. A character is knocked out by a blow to the head.
