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.The Supernaturally Playlist
In this Amazon exclusive playlist, author Kiersten White shares the tunes that best sum up her new novel, Supernaturally.
"Missing" by Flyleaf
I imagine this song playing for Evie when she’s feeling most down, worrying that whatever is missing inside of her will never be fixed.
"Oh, It Is Love" by Hellogoodbye
This sweet, happy love song has always been Evie and Lend’s song for me. When it comes to relationships, they both have this type of hopeful innocence.
"All I Wanted" by Paramore
Another song for Evie when she is feeling like everything is lost.
"Misguided Ghosts" by Paramore
A song about trying to find a place in a world you don’t feel like you’re really living in.
"Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri
I’ve heard from many people (and agree) that this is a great song for Evie and Reth’s past.
"The Drumming Song" by Florence + the Machine
The intensity and focused passion of this song makes me think of my darling Jack, along with the references to heaven and hell, a favorite theme of his.
"Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse
This is one of my favorite “Reth” songs, though he’d never bother listening to human music…
"I Will Possess Your Heart" by Death Cab for Cutie
Another song for Reth and Evie’s relationship, evoking his feelings of inevitability when it comes to being with Evie.
"I Will Follow You into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie
This song lends itself well to musings on the realities of a mortal/immortal relationship. If you’re prone to musing about such things, which I am.
"Engines" by Snow Patrol
“I know I love you like the sunlit water on your skin.” Another love song for Evie and Lend.
"Give Me Strength" by Snow Patrol
A song for all of the people in Evie’s life she realizes are her family.
"Give Me Strength" by Ingrid Michaelson
A very sad, sweet, aching song about trying to find your home.
"Firelight" by Snow Patrol
A song for dear, comatose Vivian.
“Twists and turns abound in this novel, and readers are sure to be drawn in with each new revelation.” (School Library Journal)
“A delicious, dangerous treat!” (Kirsten Miller, New York Times bestselling author of The Eternal Ones and Kiki Strike)
Praise for the Paranormalcy trilogy:“The most imaginative vampire/werewolf/supernatural series going.” (Newsday)

We are introduced to a new character named Jack, a boy who has grown up with the faeries and has the uncanny ability to create faerie doors. Jack might be my favourite character yet! His humour rivals that of Evie and I'm sure he'd give her a run for her money in a comedy-face-off. In Supernaturally, things are very different to how they were in the previous book. The budding romance between Evie and Lend is halted when Lend goes off to attend college, leaving Evie behind at high school. Reth is a maybe-not-so-evil faerie, the evil killer from Paranormalcy might be not-so-evil and her parents are maybe not-so-non-existent. Crazy revelations about many are made and it was fantastic to see the way these grew and changed.
My favourite part of Supernaturally was the way everything unfolded and developed. We're never 100% sure of anything and are given a new mystery to ponder very often. Great pacing, as always, lends itself to a never-boring read. The plot increases in complexity, opening doors from the past and for the future, and grips us in its clutches. Your heart will be forever thudding, waiting to see if Lend and Evie's relationship will persevere. Will her secrets and the countless misunderstandings ruin everything? Will things eventually work out?Read more ›
This review may contain SPOILERS!*
Things I didn't like:
*There is still too much "so" and "totally" and "bleep," the little vocal tics of Evie's that kind of got on my nerves in Paranormalcy. There seem to be even more of them in this book.
*I found myself getting really frustrated with Evie at times because she seemed so darn whiny. She was getting dangerously close to the YA heroine stereotype of "Oh, I have no life without my fabulous perfect amazing paranormal boyfriend!!" Fortunately, she did get over this a bit toward the end of the book.
* One of the things I enjoyed in Paranormalcy was that Evie was honest with Lend and tells him the truth even if it might cause problems in their relationship. That goes out the window in this book for most part.
*I still don't understand why Evie freaked out so utterly upon learning about her origins. I guess it was so her later revelation that who she is and how she will be is her decision, no matter what she is (or isn't) would be more powerful? Still, I found myself thinking her leaping into the Faerie Realms with Jack was an overreaction.
Things I did like:
*Glad we learned how Evie was made to be an Empty One for the faeries.
*I like her complicated relationship with Vivian, and how Kiersten White balances the way personal choice versus how they were raised to think and act combine to make characters who they are. I appreciate that Viv took responsibility for her actions in the previous book.Read more ›
Evie is living a normal life and its what she thought she always wanted. Turns out it's not enough. Totally not surprising to me. When you've spent your whole life battling supernaturally creatures why would high school be exciting? I was a little surprised that she went back to working for the IPCA so easily. I understood that she wanted something more and liked what they were offering her. But, it's like all the stuff that she learned at the end of book one was completely forgotten. And since she knows the Lend and his father won't like it, lets just lie to them instead.
Speaking of Lend, he's surprisingly absent for a lot of this book. He's off at college fulfilling his dreams, which is another reason that I think Evie is so bored with her normal life. I'm not saying that Evie's life should revolve around Lend, but I really expected something more there. It's almost like he expects her to forget who she is and be content with her little place in life. I also wonder if he isn't a little bit afraid of what she can do. The less trouble she can get into, the less likely she is to use it.
I did enjoy the mission that Evie is sent out. She's sent to track down goblins that may or may not have human slaves. As usual nothing is how it seems. She ends up hunting down a vampire that has a blood lust for paranormal creatures. His interactions with Evie were really interesting. I also enjoyed what she learned about the Goblins that she was sent to investigate.
I think my favorite thing was the new character Jack.Read more ›
