Evie has gotten her wish, at least for a little while, to live mostly like a “normal” teen. She’s going to high school, taking P.E., using a locker, getting to spend time with her boyfriend (when he’s home on the weekends from college). But her background and the fact she’s not fully human keep her from being able to just relax and enjoy this new life. Right away in this second book of the series, she starts facing unusual paranormal threats and finds herself having to use her skill of taking some of their soul, which she really doesn’t want to do, given what she saw and experienced in Paranormalcy.
Plus, she finds herself going back to work, at least on her own terms, for IPCA. This time, she’s assisted by a strange young man who’s human but can move through the faerie realms. Jack acts a bit more like a kid with ADHD and no adult supervision, and he bugs her but she still prefers having his help to that of Reth, the faerie who still wants her to essentially “fulfill her destiny” with the powers she has. Between fending off unusual attacks from paranormals and her worries about her future with Lend, Evie’s busy with a lot more than homework.
This was a fun entry in the trilogy.
Rated: Mild, for a few instances of mild language and some mild violence and just kissing.
