Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1)
Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie’s always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, 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 still. Normal.

Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

Okay, before I start my review, I have something to say to the author.  Why did you kill Lish!!!! Why!!!
Thank you for your patience, and for allowing me to address that matter.

I was sad to put this book down, and even more sad to finish it.  It had a wonderful pot, the characters were amazing, and the cover is beautiful.

The paranormals in this story are entirely unique.  Sure, they may seem like the same old, same old, with vamps, werewolf's, mermaids, etc.  But I'm telling you, they were unique!

I really like Evie.  She wanted to be "normal" but at the same time had friends that were Paranormals.  She seemed like a real teen, not the oh-so-perfect I work for a special company haughty person she could have been.

I am currently reading the second book, SUPERNATURALLY, and it is really good so far!  I can't wait to see how this story ends.

I give this book a 4/5 and would recommend it to lovers of paranormal, romance, and cool monsters.
