Book Review: Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Title: Paranormalcy
Author: Kiersten White
Pages: 320
Publisher: Harperteen
Source: ARC recieved from publisher
Summary: Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, 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 still. Normal.

Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

Review: Paranormalcy was amazing! I loved reading this book. Everything about it pulled me in; the cover, the summary, and the fact that it is a paranormal romance! I really liked the main character, Evie, because she has a great attitude and she cares a lot about other people. In this book, there were a lot of paranormals (ex. werewolfs, vampires, etc.). Each of these paranormals wore a mask, called glamours. Evie had the ability to see beyond their glamours and see what they really look like. I though that was really interesting. Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, where she tracks down paranormals and brings them back to the agency so they can control them. This book was filled with suspense, romance, and action. I really liked that this book had NO swearing or mature content. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal romance. Even if you don't particularly like paranormal romance, this isn't your typical, girl meets boy, falls in love story. There is so much more going on in this book besides the romance. I gave this book 5 coffee cups. I'm glad I read this book. It was great!
