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.
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.”
“The most imaginative vampire/werewolf/supernatural series going.”
“Good, romantic entertainment.”
“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.”
“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!”
