Paranormalcy by Kiersten White - Review

Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. Her gift is that she can see though any glamor. And that makes her highly unusual and very much in demand for tagging paranormals and bringing them back to the agency. She doesn't question the whys of what she's doing because it's all she's known. She's strong, she's witty, and she hopes as normal as she can be with a mermaid best friend and a faerie ex-boyfriend.

But things get complicated when Evie grows closer to Lend, a charming shape shifter, and they realize there's a killer on the loose, someone who is chasing paranormals. And as the plot deepens and darkens, Evie keeps us laughing with the wonderful vein of humor that runs throughout the book. It made me think of Buffy (always a good thing) - a girl who longs to be normal, who is happy watching soap operas and hanging out with her friends, but is equally at home fighting evil (and is very very good at it).

All that AND a great cover. What more could you want?
