Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency (sure she does) , her ex-boyfriend is a faerie (complete with a pink dress, right?), she’s falling for a shape-shifter (that almost has no face), and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal (You never had it, honey).

My Thoughts

Evie had basically lived in government care her whole life. She never experienced high school, never went to the mall, never went to theater with her friends. Despite all that, she still thinks she is living a normal teenage life. I was okay with this because she has only known her life. She never experienced anything out of her routine. It wasn't until she met an almost faceless shapeshifter, Lend, that she starts to question her life and her position in the International Paranormal Containment Agency. She also learns love.

I really believed the relationship between Lend and Evie. She loves him, no matter what face he has (although she prefers his real one). She will do anything to protect him.

Lend teaches Evie about life outside of the agency. He cares for Evie deeply and wishes to actually show Evie the outside world.

I know I put 4 stars but hear me out: The next book, Supernaturally, is coming out. The ending felt abrupt and I am dying to know what happens next.
