Synopsis: After escaping the International Paranormal Containment Agency Evie is finding out high school isn't all she thought it would be. With Lend away at college and her moody vampire roommate Evie finds herself getting bored with 'normal' life. When the IPCA comes to Evie begging her to help them she can't refuse. With the help of Jack, a human who can navigate the faerie paths, she doesn't even have to deal with faeries she despises so much. However someone is out to get Evie and Jack is hiding a few secrets of his own, will Evie figure everything out in time to save her life?

My Review:

While not as good as Paranormalcy, Supernaturally was an excellent follow-up novel. The beginning felt a little slow, but Evie is such a funny character it went quickly. This book is ultimately about Evie growing up; Evie and Lend experienced some relationship problems and Evie begins to become a stronger character, doing what she knows is right instead of blindly following instructions given to her.

Reth remains my favorite character, he is mysterious and somewhat sinister. His moral ambiguity makes it impossible to tell if he cares about Evie or not, but he is a more enjoyable character than too-perfect Lend. Evie is always a fun and cute character, she's still a bit shallow but in a lovable way. Evie grew a lot as a character in this novel, she's not as shallow as she was before and she's beginning to grow up and make her own decisions. Jack was an interesting character, he sprung completely out of nowhere but he's just as funny and likable as Evie.

I felt that the beginning of the novel moved a bit slowly, with Evie merely going out on missions for the IPCA and learning little about her identity. However on these missions Evie begins to understand that the IPCA is not always right and she starts doing what she knows in her heart is right instead of what blindly following the rules and regulations of the IPCA. The second half of the novel was amazing, leaving me with many questions I can't wait to have answered in the next book.

White yet again created a wonderful novel full of action and drama. It is impossible not to love Evie and root for her every step of the way, she never fails to make me laugh. Her relationship with Lend is cute and even though I'm not a big fan of Lend their romance is adorable. Supernaturally is an amazing addition to the Paranormalcy series and I am eagerly awaiting more!
