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.-Lana Miles, Jackson Elementary School, Rosenberg, TX (c) Copyright 2011.
