Supernaturally was a great sequel! I've been dying to read this and when I snagged it from the library I couldn't wait to dive into it. It picks up closely to where Paranormalcy left off. The beginning was a little slow, but still overall enjoyable. Kiersten has a way of writing that even if it is slow, you still fly through the pages. Which is a great skill to have!
I loved reading about Evie and Lend. They are so cute and I could read page after page after page of them just doing nothing but spending time with each other. Lend wasn't in this book as much as I had hoped he would of been, but hopefully the next book we'll see lots and lots of Lend. *swoon*
Evie is a bit different in this book. She isn't as sarcastic or filled with fire or spark this time around, but she has a lot going on and she's learned a lot since beginning her journey. Totally understandable! It was kind of nice seeing this side of her and she was still an amazing character even without her fire. She was still sarcastic at times too, just not as much!
We meet a new character in this book too; Jack. He was a pretty likeable character at times, definitely hilarious, there was just something about him always off and suspicious. I'm not going to say anything more about him, though, so I won't give away any spoilers.
And Reth kind of redeemed himself a teensy bit with this book. We'll see how that goes! And as for Arianna, I love her. =) She's so funny. All the characters in this book have a pretty awesome personality, very real.
Overall, Supernaturally wasn't as amazing as the first book was, but still very enjoyable and I'm really excited to see how Kiersten will direct the next book. I'm really sad, though, that it's the final book. But also pretty excited about it to see how Evie's journey will end.
If you haven't read this series yet, get on it! The last book will be out soon! This series is filled with amazing characters, a unique storyline, and awesome writing!

Any other day, when she was working for IPCA Evie would be dying to go to high school, have friends, get a locker and be normal.
Finally she gets all of it, her dreams are no longer dreams and she goes to high school gets a few friends and a locker!
And she hates all of it. Where are the catfights, the conspiracy between students, the wild parties or masquerades, the secret loves and affairs?!
It's all so boring, so... normal.
The only good thing is that she has a boyfriend, Lend, a shape-shifter/water-boy that now goes to college and from whom she keeps a huge secret: at the end of the first book she discovers that Lend is immortal meaning that the day he finds out everything will be over since she is mortal.
Or something like that. In fact, she is an Empty One, created for a highly purpose (which we don't know yet) that includes she can suck the souls of other supernatural beings.
So as soon as Raquel (her ex-boss from IPCA and her only mother figure) comes to visit her and asks her to work for IPCA as an freelance employee Evie can't be happier. And once again her life is full of adventures which includes not only her teenager live but also Reth (faerie ex-boyfriend) and Jack (a crazy guy with a cool ability that works for IPCA too). Oh, and don't forget the fact that she tries to her work secret from Lend... yes, another secret, not very wise...
In my opinion, this book was better than the first one. Not only the story is well written but also the twists and the ending are better. Evie's story is really interesting once you get to know it and her relationship with her now-in-coma sister, Vivian is touchy. the only thing that I didn't like to much is that in this book Evie is also very selfish... but that doesn't change the fact that I enjoyed this book a lot more. And yes, I totally and completely love the cover, is gorgeous!!!

Evie is finally living a normal life outside of the IPCA. She lives with a roommate, has a boyfriend, and goes to high school. Everything she's always wanted.
But normal can be boring.
So when her old boss contacts her to work with the IPCA again, on her own terms, she agrees. But she's soon back to her old ways of danger and lies. Her current boyfriend, Lend, is worried about her, and her ex-boyfriend, Reth (a faerie) shows up and shocks her with revelations about her past and the faerie world.
PARANORMALCY was my favorite book of last year. So I couldn't wait to read SUPERNATURALLY. And while it wasn't as good as the first book, I really enjoyed it.
One again, I just absolutely LOVED Evie. I love her sense of humor. I love how she was totally kick-butt, but wanted to be normal. I love how she got so excited about the little things (ahem, lockers). I love how she was so In Love with Lend. She's just the epitome of the perfect heroine, to me anyway.
And once again, I loved how this book was written. I loved the humor of it all. And the way Kiersten White writes like the characters are talking to a friend. (Then again, I love reading her blog, too).
The part about the Faerie Paths just kind of lost me, as well as the role of the faeries. And I wasn't too keen about the part with Evie's dad; it was a little odd to me. I did really like the addition of Jack. He was a great, surprising character.
But, oh man, I can't wait to read the third book!
Praise for the Paranormalcy trilogy: "The most imaginative vampire/werewolf/supernatural series going."--Newsday
