Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. She lures vampires and stalks hags. Evie is great at her job. Her secret: she can see beyond the glamours that paranormals project. Today was a day like any other. Vampire tagged and given marching orders. Nasty run in with ex-boyfriend, a faerie named Reth. A chat with her best friend Lish, a mermaid. Watched her favorite TV show Easton Heights. Then, a guy who's unlike any paranormal Evie's ever dealt with breaks into HQ. Lend brings Evie a prophecy that's certainly a death wish. Can Evie and Lend work it out before every paranormal on earth is dead?

What I thought: Wow! I liked this one. Evie's one cool girl. Lend is a great male lead. This book will turn some off faeries and with good reason. Evie's fascination with high school is quite humorous. (Note: Lend thinks she's crazy when it comes to high school.) The prom scene was good--better, I think than Twilight. A quick look at Kiersten's blog shows that there are two more books coming in this new series. The second book, Supernaturally, is due out this year. I can't wait.
