The second book in the sparkling Paranormalcy trilogy from Kiersten White, #1 New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken

For fans of Teen Wolf, Buffy, and Supernatural, the Paranormalcy trilogy is a witty, fresh, and downright fun read that will capture your heart.

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. Boring enough that when she’s given a chance to work for the International Paranormal Containment Agency again, 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.

This was a great read and didn't disappoint. The writing is beautiful, the story was captivating. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

Evie's story continues in SUPERNATURALLY and the kick-butt character's trademark wit, cleverness and heart is on full display in the second installment of this trilogy. Evie faces new challenges in this story and new temptations as she seeks deeper answers to who she is and to who's causing so much trouble, both in the faerie realms and the real world. This book is funny and clever, and also deep and thoughtful. What I love best about Kiersten's books is that they make you laugh, cry AND think. She creates this fantastical world with witty characters and unusual creatures and then she presents them with true moral dilemmas. I love how in SUPERNATURALLY Kiersten explores temptation and choice - it reminds me of Dumbledore's famous line: "Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy."

Kiersten White is back with her sharp wit and quirky phrases that come together for an overall quick and entertaining read. If you thought Evie in Paranormalcy was hilarious, then you'll probably think the same of Supernaturally. White has one of those writing styles that has the tendency to suck you in and keep you there, and I definitely enjoyed my return trip to the world she created in Paranormalcy. With that being said, I didn't enjoy Supernaturally quite as much as Paranormalcy. The thing that bothered me the most about Supernaturally is also one of the things that I like most about White as an author. Confused? I thought so. Let me explain. There were many times when Evie drove me crazy in the book. Keeping secrets from your boyfriend? Stupid. Justifying your actions with flawed logic to avoid a guilty conscience? Immature. Avoiding your friend (who's about as clinically depressed as they come) in order to pursue secret agendas? Selfish. I wanted to grab Evie and shake her a few times and shout What are you thinking, girl? This is SO going to come around to bite you in the behind! At first, I wanted to chalk up my frustration with Evie to the ever-dreaded second book flop. After all, a great first book like Paranormalcy has got to be hard to top. But then I got to thinking...(and here comes my explanation of the whole love/hate thing): are people ever completely perfect in real life? Do they always make the right decisions? Nope. Do they frequently act like they're dumber than a box of rocks even though you know they know better? Yep. Cue light bulb and sudden realization. While I hated many of the decisions that Evie made in Supernaturally, I loved that White was able to flesh out her main character in a way that showcased both her good and bad sides because, let's face it...people are a pretty twisted bunch. We don't tend to operate in extremes. We go back and forth and inside out and upside down and who knows what else. And Evie's journey isn't over yet. She still has another book, which makes me think that we haven't seen the last of the caring, passionate, heartwarming girl that I loved so much in Paranormalcy. An element of Supernaturally that I really enjoyed was the development of the minor characters...specifically: Jack (who's new) and Arianna (who we first met in Paranormalcy). Like Vivian played the part of being Evie's foil in the first book, Jack played a somewhat similar role. I didn't really realize this until the end of the book, and since I don't want to spoil anything for you guys, I won't elaborate much, but I did enjoy the addition of Jack's character to the story line. On the other hand, Arianna's character kind of fell into the role that the mermaid Lish had originally had...that of best friend to Evie. But unlike Lish, Arianna is a much darker character. Lish was born a paranormal and seemed to be proud of what she was, while Arianna, being a vampire, was once human and had no desire to stop being human.She was forced into the (un)life she now has, and you can really see the effect that has on her in Supernaturally, which made her into the type of complex character that I like reading about. Overall, my current recommendations concerning this series are these: if you enjoyed the first book, then you should definitely give the sequel a shot. At the same time though, if you, like me, find yourself not as fond of the sequel, don't give up hope.

Kreisten White continues her unique and intriguing story in the Eternal Ones series. Evie has now settled into a somewhat normal life with Lend and his Father. Although, this story proves that is anything but normal. Danger seems to follow her around ever turn. It was reassuring to see her turn back to the ICAP; even if it was on her terms and no longer being a slave to their needs. Developments in this book do shed light to Evie's past that will add a little more understanding to her future. This character does seem easily swayed from her journey easily in these novels which add frustration for the readers. Best of all I adore the humor that fills these stories. Evie is hilarious and pure enjoyment to read. White's experience is increasing that is previewed in the easy and effortless flow of this entire story. This is a series that readers will love to follow.

The ending shocked me! i would recommend this book to anyone, along with the first. you defintely need to read the first before you read this one. i am eagerly sitting on the edge of my seat for the next book :D if you like adventure then go and pick this up, i know you'll love it like i did :D

Lemme just start by saying #1...this book is oficially my favorite book ever!!!!!! And #2... i stayed up way late reading this book! PLEASE BEWARED THERE MAY BE SOME SPOILERS! In this book evie gets an offer to return to IPCA from raquel. Evie thinks about it and later says yes, but she does not tell Lend or Arriana so they start to get suspisios. And did i mention that IPCA is no longer really that dependent on faeries, they found a teen who can travel the faerie paths even though he is.not a faerie. This teen, jack, turns out to be quite the pain in the buns for evie. Lend and Evie have 2 fights in this book(the first fight was not bad but the second fight was bad, but it does eventully work out for them, which made me so happy!) And i almost forgot but Reth tells Evie about her parents. Oh and Evie gets bit by a Vampire.(that was one of my favorite moments, not the fact that she got bit but who saved her.) I gave this book all five stars because it is fantastic!!!!!! You should really get this book because it still has the funny comments, witty charrectors, charrectors that you love, action moments, plots that keep you guessing, and Evie still Bleeps!(in fact Lend said bleep in this book!!) So if you are still on the fence about getting this book, then i don't know what to say. Please excuse all spelling mistakes.

This Book Fell a bit, but fans will still enjoy it. Review Brought to you by OBS Staff member Annabell As often is the case with sequels, readers find themselves on shaky ground. The first book in author Kiersten White&rsquo;s Paranormalcy Series, which happens to be entitled Paranormalcy, set a high bar for her to follow. As a BIG fan of the first book, I had HIGH expectations for the next novel. It just couldn&rsquo;t be helped, it was SO good! Supernaturally was a fairly fun read with a few exceptions. Even though Evie is still her witty, always ready for a good butt kicking, and as spunky as ever as she was in the first novel, her character did fall a little on the weak side. She was very whiny and way too dependent on her relationship with Lend. Where in Paranormalcy, Evie always managed to find answers on her own and hold her ground against anyone that went up against her, in Supernaturally Evie spends most of her time whinnying and being scared of telling Lend the truth about his immortality. She is way to clingy and lost a lot of her &lsquo;Evie&rsquo; spark. Lend was not nearly as much involved in the story as I would have liked. He did spend a considerable amount of his time in the book nagging to Evie about how dangerous it would be to return to work for IPCA. I found it odd that he was jealous of Jack. His jealousy made no sense since Evie wasn&rsquo;t the least bit flirty with Jack ever. Lend was still loving and charming but his best qualities were dulled out somewhat in the book. Evie is still very funny and as impulsive as ever. I just wish her character was as smart and spunky as in the first book. Reth also wasn&rsquo;t in the story very much. I had expected him to be going after Evie determined to steal her away from Lend but he was barely in the story. Jack, who played the villain, was such a lame villain. When he was first introduced to the story, he&rsquo;s rude and sarcastic and hilarious but as the story progresses, Jack just becomes EXTEMELY annoying! I could tell the part he was going to play very early on in the book but he was such a weak villain. His plan against the fairies was pretty cool (for being evil that is) but his so called pranks on the fairies and on the student body at Evie&rsquo;s school weren&rsquo;t really amusing or impressive. I just expected the villain of the book to have been Reth up to his sneaky ways of entrapping Evie or a new paranormal coming into play. It was a letdown. The ending of the book, although endearing, was somewhat ridiculous. There is no real solution to the fact that Lend is immortal and Evie doesn&rsquo;t know how long she will live for. I mean I appreciated how Lend loves Evie and how closely bonded they are, but the ending was just shrug-cute-enough-but-really-not-an-actual-ending type of ending. I wanted more. I wanted something darker or edgier or even tragic, especially given the story centers around paranormals! I did like the fact that readers finally get to learn about Evie&rsquo;s parents and how Evie was created. Readers also get a better glimpse into the world of the fairies and who the Queen of the Unseelie Court is. I also like the German vampire or as Evie dubbed him &ldquo;Uber-vamp&rdquo;. He was a nice addition to the story and funny. I also liked the chapter with the trolls.... See the FULL review and more at openbooksociety dot com

A Bookish Compulsion Review: Supernaturally This was a fast and fun read. Taking up just a little bit after Paranormalcy left off it brings us through the trials and tribulations of Evie attempting to be &ldquo;normal&rdquo; in both a very paranormal environment, and with her own personal differences. It is a very teen oriented viewpoint, but well written enough, I feel, to be enjoyable to all ages. The pendulum swing from enjoying the before un-tasted &ldquo;normality&rdquo; to the realization that sometime&mdash;even with a locker&mdash;everyday high school life can be a bit boring (especially if one is used to chasing after vampires, hags, and tangling with the fay) was a nice inverse, and I think it allowed Evie to find her own balance. The character conflicts, interactions, and development in this offering ranged the gamut, from the teen angst of fear of losing your boyfriend, to the classic finding of roots, it played up the strengths in our characters and revealed their weakness, making them feel quite real; if not always wise. I did miss some of the interaction that was so well done in the first book. Lend especially got the fuzzy end of the lollypop in this book, flattening a before rounded character, due in part to Evie&rsquo;s insecurities and his lack of involvement in the plot due to distance. I also felt that there was no good substitution for Lish; while I feel that the attempt was made to have Arianna fill that gap, it was an incomplete fit for me. The world that was already introduced into this series gets expanded and fleshed out in this book, both the physical landscape and the sociological concepts that I feel make this work so compelling. This is not a book of black and whites, but shaded with all variations of lovely gray. The new characters introduced into this volume both exemplify and defy this concept of gradient; and while I can&rsquo;t really say I was surprised at the end, I did feel that this book was well-woven. One of the impetuses behind picking up this series again is that the third and final book in this trilogy is coming out July 24th 2012, and as great as I remembered the first book to be, I hadn&rsquo;t gotten around to reading the second. I am very glad I rectified that situation and look eagerly forward to the conclusion, Endlessly, even while I mourn the ending of such a wonderful series. This book made five stars for me.

A good sequel to the original! The plot is well written and leaves you aching for more story. Read this one in day (a habit of mine) and I can't wait for the next one. Paranormalcy has the feel of a great TV series with great visuals and well written emotions that leave you feeling right there with the characters.

Evie has been living a normal high school life. Missing Lend who is away at college -- she's yearning for a bit of excitement. Being who she is, Evie's wish is granted. But it's a bit more dangerous than she was hoping for.I loved the first book Paranormalcy, so when Supernaturally arrived in my mailbox, I had a bit of a fangirl moment. It definitely lived up to my expectations. Delightful and sassy. I loved it. Evie is such a joy to read. Funny and charming. I love that there are all sorts of paranormal creatures in this world. From the innocent ones to the devious villains. Supernaturally is a fantastic read, filled with danger, romance, and truths are revealed. A fast story with wonderful darkness.

Evie has what she always wanted: a locker and a regular life. She is happy working her shifts at the diner, seeing her boyfriend, Lend and learning how to be normal. Normal becomes boring and when her ex-boyfriend, Reth, shows up along with some other disguised paranormals, things get weird quickly. Evie finds herself in the middle of a power struggle between the good and bad fairies, but finds when it comes to fairies, the are only shades of evil. Lend has gone to college and Evie has set her goal to get into to the same school so they can be together. Evie meets up again with Raquel and her new assistant, Jack, when she decides to help the IPCA again.I really enjoyed Evie spunky nature and snarky comments, but there is a bit lacking with Lend not always in the picture. Her vampire room mate does pick up some of the slack and the introduction of Jack, who at first is super annoying and becomes gallactically annoying by the end of the book. Jack (a human who grew up in Fairy) does provide some relief and makes Evie more human by forcing her to actually have a bit of fun and act like a child, things that she missed growing up at IPCA. There is a major twist and Evie finds out even more about her past. I thought this one was nicely done and left open a bunch of questions and paths for Evie to explore in another book.

What on earth is that breath of fresh air in the YA section? Why, it's Supernaturally---one of the only books that is the second in a series and doesn't end with a break-neck cliffhanger!! Not that I hate cliffhangers, it's just that after coming across so many first and second books that practically left me with vertigo, I read the ending of Supernaturally with a sign of relieved satisfaction.But I'm started backwards. Actually, this one got off to a bit of a slow start for me. Evie has finally gotten her wish and is getting a taste of normal teenage life: high school, gym class, and, yes, Evie finally has her own locker. Unfortunately, she is finding out that real high school is nothing like her favorite high school TV drama, Easton Heights. She's having a hard time fitting in, has found her way onto the gym teacher's torment list, and is pretty bored with the rest of it. After the first book with Evie's fun, sometimes naive, spirit and all the paranormal craziness---reading about her being bored and mundane was just not as fun. The story really picked up further in though.This one is a little darker than the first---Evie is going through some pretty big emotional conflicts with Lend, leaving and being drawn back into what used to be home to her at the IPCA, worrying about her future, and her in-dream relationship with her new-found sister, Vivian. She's torn in trying to decide how she feels about what Lend's dad does to protect paranormal compared to what the IPCA does to monitor them. We get to find out some pretty juicy bits of info about where she came from, what she is, and what she was "created" for. There's a new face, Jack, who is even more playful than Evie herself. While he was fun sometimes, his actions were just a little too childlike and I kept picturing him as a hyper 11-year-old, jumping on the bed, and pulling silly pranks. Still, an entertaining addition and he's an important part of the story!On the whole, another great adventure for Evie! Even though the villain was not a huge surprise to me, I still enjoyed the ride very much. With a good amount of closure on most of the storylines that were introduced in book two, the next book can basically go anywhere it wants! I can't wait to see what's next for Evie and Lend in Endlessly!

Supernaturally, the follow-up to Kiersten White's Paranormalcy is another don't-stop-until-you're-done glimpse into Evie's world.Only this time around, Evie's biggest worry should be avoiding getting killed by the overly enthusiastic soccer players in gym class. That's right, Evie's finally gotten her wish and has a normal life, locker and all.Away from IPCA, Evie is attending high school and trying her hand at being ordinary.Except, being ordinary gets kind of ..... ordinary.So, when a chance to to work for IPCA again presents itself, Evie agrees.But as one job leads to another to another, all more dangerous than she expected, Evie wonders if she made the right decision.Then you throw in Reth, revelations about her past, and trouble with the faerie courts (again) that could mean trouble for everything . . . all that affect Evie.Looks like both worlds were too good to be true for Evie ... will she ever find a place she fits?Everything that you loved in Paranormalcy is back in Supernaturally. Thers's the humor, the wit, the characters (well, most of the them), and some paranormal containment, too. Just without Evie living in the Center.There's also the relationships - actually, more so. Evie and Raquel's relationship is still a part of Supernaturally but it's not the main Evie-and-another relationship that is focused on in this novel. Her relationship with Lend is really developed, as is her relationship with Arianna, her relationship with friends she's trying to make at school, but most of all, her relationship with Evie.Sounds cheesy put that way, but Evie's really trying to figure out how she works in this normal life, then in a normal life with a bit of IPCA business thrown in the mix.Kiersten White's talent really comes through with Evie. Love her or hate her Evie is Evie and can never be mistaken for any other character in fiction (or nonfiction or real life, I would imagine). Readers connect with Evie because she is so herself. Evie is a character unlike any other, something that comes through in the writing and really makes this story.Can't forget, of course, the new character in this book, Jack. I want to know how Ms White had enough imagination space left to come up with him. (Loved him, too.) There is no shortage of imagination or creativity in this book or this series.The Paranormalcy series is one that should really become a television series. Really.Rating: 10/10(and I'm already trying to figure out something constructive to do to bide my time until the next book comes out)HUGE thank you to HarperTeen for my advance copy of this book!Soundtrack:Naturally ~ Selena GomezGod Don't Make Lonely Girls ~ WallflowersWait It Out ~ Imogen HeapALSO? Make sure you read the acknowledgments!!!!

Kiersten White is a genius. A cute bright (not-so-little) don't-mess-with-me dazzling flash of genius. From the first pages of Paranormalcy, I have been a huge fan of hers, and I knew that I would love Supernaturally as much as Paranormalcy, even though it didn't quite exist at the time. You know how seconds and thirds often disappointment? Well, I have a feeling that the Paranormalcy trilogy won't disappoint. Supernaturally was just as awesome as Paranormalcy in its own awesome way. Sure, we don't have the attraction of the boring old Center minus Lend stuck in a cell, but we have school and its boring ordinariness plus (gasp) college Lend and college apps... and wait for it... more makeout scenes! What's not to like?Paranormalcy wraps its events nicely while leaving us with a bit of intrigue, such as what Reth is now up to (oh how I'm dying to know his new real name. What name could be better than Lorethan? Lorethan is a lovely name, isn't it?) and whether or not Evie will be able to escape the Faeries' grasp while maintaining some semblance of normalcy. However, as always with abilities unusual even among the para-normal, Evie finds it hard to escape the grasp of the paranormal world. And frankly? She's looking for some escape from ordinary life. This is where Supernaturally starts.Kiersten White brings back a cast of wonderful, quirky characters, including Reth, Lend, Raquel, and Ariana, and Evie (I think the last one was a given); and she brings in new faces, most prominently among them: Jack. The wild, mysterious boy that will bring so much trouble--and action--to Evie's life. Don't worry, Lend will defend his position as Evie's boyfriend gallantly, but you're in for a world of mischief. You will learn things about characters that have the potential to break hearts. You will find yourself wondering who you can trust and who's out to get Evie. You will question how Evie will ever make it out of the mess that her life is in. And you will demand to know what part Reth plays in all of this and what choices Evie will make.I'm not surprised that Kiersten's so attached to Supernaturally--that she loves it even more than Paranormalcy. Bleep, I have a hard time deciding which one I love more! In the end I have to say that I love the both of them. Initially, I wasn't sure what I'd think about another guy playing a prominent role in this book, but I like Jack as crazy as he is. I like who Evie has grown to be. Bleep, but how Reth still enchants me with his charm as much as he tries to compel Evie into following him and leaving Lend behind. And bleep, will Kiersten never fail to amuse me with her depictions of "widely known" no-so-mythical (according to the IPCA) creatures?I love them, and I love the brilliant cast of characters in the Paranormalcy trilogy. If I wasn't so sure they would do something evil to me in retaliation, I'd try to take one of them home with me. I'd have tried to take one home with me long ago. Sigh... I'll have to satisfy myself with rereading books one and two until Endlessly finds its way home to me.Back to Supernaturally.You will cry. You will rage. Above all, you will laugh. Kiersten White never fails to entertain you with her wickedly awesome sense of humor.

Review By Alaiel Kreuz: Any other day, when she was working for IPCA Evie would be dying to go to high school, have friends, get a locker and be normal.Finally she gets all of it, her dreams are no longer dreams and she goes to high school gets a few friends and a locker!And she hates all of it. Where are the catfights, the conspiracy between students, the wild parties or masquerades, the secret loves and affairs?!It's all so boring, so... normal.The only good thing is that she has a boyfriend, Lend, a shape-shifter/water-boy that now goes to college and from whom she keeps a huge secret: at the end of the first book she discovers that Lend is immortal meaning that the day he finds out everything will be over since she is mortal.Or something like that. In fact, she is an Empty One, created for a highly purpose (which we don't know yet) that includes she can suck the souls of other supernatural beings.So as soon as Raquel (her ex-boss from IPCA and her only mother figure) comes to visit her and asks her to work for IPCA as an freelance employee Evie can't be happier. And once again her life is full of adventures which includes not only her teenager live but also Reth (faerie ex-boyfriend) and Jack (a crazy guy with a cool ability that works for IPCA too). Oh, and don't forget the fact that she tries to her work secret from Lend... yes, another secret, not very wise...In my opinion, this book was better than the first one. Not only the story is well written but also the twists and the ending are better. Evie's story is really interesting once you get to know it and her relationship with her now-in-coma sister, Vivian is touchy. the only thing that I didn't like to much is that in this book Evie is also very selfish... but that doesn't change the fact that I enjoyed this book a lot more. And yes, I totally and completely love the cover, is gorgeous!!!

Paranormalcy was one of my absolute favorite books of last year, so I was super excited for Supernaturally. I'm a little torn with how I feel about Supernaturally. Don't get me wrong, I loved it, but last year, Paranormalcy sucker punched me with its freshness and originality. It had that real "Wow" factor because it was so unique, not only in storyline, but in the way the story was told. Since I've already been exposed to it, I was less blown away by Supernaturally. That being said, Supernaturally still kept all the awesome elements I loved from Paranormalcy and advanced the story in a way I think will make Endlessly amazing.Let's start with the voice. Bleeping amazing! Evie jumps right off the page and makes me jealous I don't have Kiersten White's genius. Even in the most dire of circumstances, the narrative is funny but not in a distracting way. Aaand, how cute are Evie and Lend? The book could've been entirely encompassed by their flirting and I still would've been pleased. I'm a little surprised, but I didn't dislike Reth in this novel. I'll be honest, I hated him through most of Paranormalcy and only at the end did I start to hate him a little less (which, is due to his character, not any flaw on White's part). Reth's involvement in the story makes him more and more intriguing. I kind of want to go back and read Paranormalcy again, knowing what I know now, and see if I can like him a little more. Also, Neamh = lovely. I think what I really enjoyed about Supernaturally--besides the amazing characters, voice, plot, and overall great writing--was the moral dilemmas. There were several of them in this book and they were examined with just the right amount of attention. They didn't overwhelm the story nor were they rushed over. I have a feeling the conclusions of these dilemmas are key for the last book and it makes me extremely excited. If you haven't read Supernaturally (or *dies at the thought* Paranormalcy) you should go do that. Now. Even if you're not a fan of paranormal I think you'll like it.

Once again this is a great series. I love Evie and all the characters in the book. Can't wait for the next book.
