“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!”

Description

Evie's always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she's falling for a shape-shifter, and she's the only one who can see through glamours.

But now Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and cryptic messages--and she's realizing that she may be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.
