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.

My rating: ★★★★★

OMFG I LOVED this book!! It was amazing!! Can someone please tell me why I didn’t read this book sooner?! Lol

So Evie has this special ability of seeing through glamours, which basically Means that she can tell paranormals from…well, normal humans. She was found when she was only a toddler and she was being chased by a vampire. Ever since, she has been with IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency) helping them track down and tag all sorts of paranormal creatures…it’s kind of like a job.

But things start getting weird (or weirder, I should say) when a shape shifter breaks into the agency. Turns out, there has been a whole bunch of killings (all paranormals) and the shape shifter (Lend) was there to find out why. He thought that IPCA would be able to help, but they have no idea what been going on either.

What Evie and Lend soon realize is that Evie has something to do with all this…*cue dramatic music* Oh and so are the faeries...never really liked faeries in the first place…

So Evie and Lend help each other, trying to figure out this mystery, while at the same time Evie starts having feelings for Lend. And at the same time she’s trying push back feelings he had about his ex-boyfriend (and faery) Reth, and actually, trying to avoid him altogether.

I don’t really like Reth, he is such a creep! Lend on the other hand…*sigh* I really liked him ;) And Evie…loved her!! I mean, how can you not love someone who carries around a pink Taser. Can you say badass?! Lol

I cannot wait for the next book!!! I loved watching Lend and Evie’s relationship develop and bloom. I’d really like to see how they continue to grow and how Evie handles school…with her fascination and all with the lockers, lol

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
