Summary (via Goodreads):
Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, 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.
Why I read this: I couldn't resist this cover, first off all. Then, I heard Kiersten was coming to town for a signing, so I had to buy it and then read it. :)
Plot: Imagine working as a bad and tag government group as a teen - only your supposed to take in other paranormals. This is what Evie has to deal with. There some love/hate relationships going on in this book and tons of action. I was intrigued by all the twists and turns that took place in this book and definitely am looking forward to more!
Characters: Evie has some interesting catch phrases that cracked me up. I couldn't quite understand the tension between her and Reth - the elf that seems smitten with her - but there seems to be quite a lengthy history between them. I'm sad one of my favorite characters died. I won't say who, but it made me sad.
Relatability: Readers who like action-packed paranormal YA will enjoy this novel.
Cover Commentary: So beautiful. I love the colors and the model on it.
Rating: 5/5 Roses
