Supernaturally By: Kiersten White

**** Spoiler Alert*****
This is a review of a second book in a trilogy.  I may give away information regarding the first book. 

Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be . . . kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.
But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.
So much for normal.

I love Kiersten White!!  She does such a good job creating a great world and characters.  In this book Evie is living in the "real" world, going to school, working a "regular" job at a cafe, she goes on dates with Lend while he is back from school on the weekends.  She now lives with a Vampire and the cafe that she works at is a hot spot for paranormals learning how to live with humans.  Everything is perfect.... should be perfect..... but she is bored out of her mind.  Even having her own locker isn't as cool as she thought it would be. 

One day after school Raquel shows up and asks her to come back to work for IPCA on a case by case basis and the best part...?... No working with Fairies.  But that means no using the fairy paths, right?  No, the IPCA has found a human boy that had lived with the fairies and has actually learned how to use fairy paths.

Lend and his father don't want her to go to work for Raquel and the IPCA but Evie feels lost with her life going no where. At first she decides to do small assignments and feels like she is making a difference.  They way she now sees paranormals has changed she finds herself actually helping the good guys while only "bagging and tagging the bad guys.  After a while things start to go wrong.  Little things happen that don't make since and along the way she also runs into a vampire that has more power then any other vampire she has EVER encountered.

I love Evie in this book. In Paranormallcy she had to come to terms with who and what she is. She had some major prejudices to get over.  In Supernaturally it seems as though she needs to start believing in herself.  She also learns to stand up for herself and the things she wants, without needing to make everyone happy.  She meets up with Raquel again and remembers how much she loved her and missed her.  When a chance to work together and see her again Evie decides that it is something that she wants even though Lend and his father don't want her to do it.  She stands up and gains her relationship with Raquel again. 

Definitely a great book, especially as book two of this trilogy.  I can't wait to see more from Evie.
