when I (already bored) hit the line "You're much prettier when you aren't talking" and the heroine pretty much takes that - and all else - lying down (or uselessly spluttering) I gave up on the book. YA should mean writing this immature.

This book was good, but I felt didn't really live up to its predecessor. It was much less exciting, it seemed, with not as much mystery or unknowns to intrigue me as much. I felt like I overestimated what this book would be like, which kind of sucks because I liked the first one so much. I just kept feeling like Evie was less than she was in Paranormalcy. Less responsible with her friends (like Arianna. I felt like she didn't make much of an effort to help or hang out with her). Less determined to stay with Lend (I mean, he was the one that fixed things in the end, all she did was worry). Less powerful (in the first book, I got a sense that she could hold her own, that she was more than capable of taking care of herself. In this book, she didn't really take much initiative in what was happening around her, it felt. It felt like she kept trying to get back to her old life, but that she wouldn't be able to keep up with it anymore). Jack turned out to be nothing like I figured. I was totally blindsided by his true character. It was really eerie and semi-disturbing. On the other end of the spectrum, Lend appeared to be the best person, morally, in the story. Evie kept keeping secrets from him, yet he continued to forgive her. Then there's Reth. He barely shows up at all in the story, and when he does, he just happens to reveal Evie's past and answer all her questions. Plus, you know, lets it come to light that her real name is Neamh... crazy! I feel like that's going to come more into play in the next book (at least I hope!) I gave this four stars because I still love the story and the concept of this series.

Very nice! Evie is just a tad too dependent on her relationship with Lend, but otherwise it's a fantastic book. Can't wait to read the next one!

"When I caught up, I grabbed Jack’s arm. “What are you
doing here?” “Hiding! That’s how you play the game, right? I thought
the title hide-and-seek was fairly self-explanatory. Then
again, you are blond.” “So are you, idiot. Again, what are you doing here?”

"Tell me what happened to my mother." - Evie

"'Be prepared',that's my motto." He smiled smugly at me "That, and 'sleep whenever possible.' Oh, and 'If you don't notice it's gone, what's the harm in me taking it?'" -Jack

Gr 9 Up—In this sequel to Paranormalcy (HarperCollins, 2010), Evie, 16, leaves the International Paranormal Containment Agency, hoping for a normal life. She dreams of attending Georgetown upon graduation and has a steady boyfriend, Lend. However, she lives in a tiny apartment and works part time as a waitress, and finds her life boring. When asked to do small missions for the agency, Evie readily accepts. These missions, however, are neither simple nor safe, and it looks like there's about to be a battle in the faerie world. Vampires, slyphs, fossgrims, and faeries are attempting to kill her, and she doesn't know why. A new friend, Jack, and a faerie ex-boyfriend, Reth, add to the danger she faces and strain her relationship with Lend. Evie does not know whom to trust or believe. In her search for answers, she discovers things about her past that add to her confusion. The story comes to a satisfying conclusion with the teen learning that there is good and bad in all creatures. She also discovers that there are many paths one can follow to reach a desired goal. Twists and turns abound in this novel, and readers are sure to be drawn in with each new revelation about Evie and her friends.
