Evie is not your average teenager. She has the ability to see through the glamors (disguises) of supernatural creatures. Warewolves, vampires, and faeries may be able to fool the rest of the world, but Evie sees them for who they are. She works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, an organization that keeps track of these supernaturals and protects the human population from them.
But then Evie meets Lend, a shapeshifter and her tidy little world begins to unravel.
There are a lot of fun quirks about this book. Evie’s best friend is a mermaid, she has an awkward relationship with a faerie, and she’s obsessed with a teen drama called Easton Heights. The little details made Evie very real to me.
Paranormalcy was dark enough to be interesting but light enough to be fun. It’s perfectly paced and kept me going through the first hours of the 24-hour Readathon. It is unique enough to stand out from the plethora of YA paranormal books out there today.
