“For Evie, life is anything but normal. She works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, has a possessive faerie for an ex, is falling for a shape-shifter, and is the only person in the world who can see through paranormals' glamours. White's debut novel had me mesmerized from the very first page to the last. Warning: This is one of those books that will seduce readers and leave them wanting more!”
-- Grace Firari, The Velveteen Rabbit Bookshop, Fort Atkinson, WI


Description

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.




About the Author

Kiersten White is the New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy and Supernaturally. She has one tall husband and two small children. She lives near the ocean in San Diego, where her days are perfectly normal. This abundance of normal led her to a fascination with all things paranormal, including but not limited to faeries, vampires, and pop culture.




Praise For Paranormalcy

“Strong characters, a clever premise, and a hilarious voice all team up to make Paranormalcy the most refreshing paranormal debut of the year.”
-Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy

“A fast, flirty roller coaster of a ride. This story was everything I hoped for—sassy, light-hearted and downright scary. Oh, bleep! I’m in love!”
-Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of Hush, Hush and Crescendo

“Paranormalcy seduced me. The two sexy paranormals who vie for Evie’s affections each had their own victory; one won Evie’s heart and the other won mine.”
-Aprilynne Pike, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wings

“Kiersten White creates the perfect blend of light and dark. Even as the stakes rose higher, Paranormalcy’s narrator, Evie, kept a smile on my face with her cunning wit. I can’t wait for more!”
-Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

“First-time author White shows the technique and polish of a pro in this absorbing romance, which comes closer than most to hitting the Buffy mark.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A fast-paced, entertaining debut. Alternately funny and tragic but never maudlin, White’s debut will have broad appeal among fantasy fans.”
-Booklist

“The most imaginative vampire/werewolf/supernatural series going.”
-Newsday

“Good, romantic entertainment.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Perky, insolent, fearless, and insecure...teenage girls will recognize themselves [in Evie]. Likely to be a popular read.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

“Buffy meets The X-Files in this darkly sexy story.”
-Romantic Times

“This was one of my favorite books of the year! I thought it was absolutely fantastic! I laughed out loud so many times while reading it, and it was wonderfully written and so refreshingly clean!”
