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.

My Review: Let's just say that this book is abolutely nothing like I expected it to be. I raced through this book in about a day and a half which rarely happens because of prison school. It was a mix of humor, action, and everything else I love about paranormal romance.
     First, lets talk about the characters. Evie is a phanominal heroine. She wasn't your average teenage girl, she was 16 but she had never been to a real school. She had a personality which I feel in most YA novels, is  kinda pushed on the back burner. She was funny and relatable and OMG! Just go this book. Lend was a great character too but I am not going to go into him in case of acccidental spoilers. Reth was that evil ex I always hope for in books. He wasn't stupid like alot of male characters but he wasn't smart. Lish was Evie's best friend and a mermaid. She had to talk through a computer and when she used ''certain'' words the computer would translate it as ''bleep''.
    Now let's talk about the plot. Evie never knew who her parents were or where she was from. Nobody at IPCA would tell her anything. All she knew was that she had been at IPCA since she was 8 and had never went to a normal school. She was a dare devil kinda like me but was very intelligent at to what she should and shouldnt do. I loved going on her journey.
        Overall this book was amazing. Definitely go pick it up if you want your spirits lifted and to laugh. I will be picking up the second book as soon as it comes out in paperback so my covers can match. Below you can find the awesome trailer.
