Official Blurb -

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 loved the humor in this book. Evie has that witty sense of humor I like to imagine my inner thoughts contain. It isn't the case but I like to pretend. It was such a delight reading this book. She could always turn around any bad moment with just the right comment.

I have to say I was disappointed in Lend. I guess I wanted a bit more drama. Or perhaps for him to be a bit more proactive. Instead we just get an impressive amount of imaginative dates. I guess he is a bit too nice for my tastes and far too easy when it comes to letting his girl hang out with another guy. I got upset with him when he totally let her walk off with Jack. Come on Lend don't you have more starch in you than that! I kept getting distracted trying to imagine what it would be like having a boyfriend you could barely see. I guess I am just brainwashed into only finding color attractive. I mean I need something to see to be attracted to.

I liked this book. It left me with a smile on my face. So excited for the last installment.

Moment Divine:
"There are things in this world you're better off not knowing. Go home and leave the night it's mysteries."
"Wow, melodramatic much? You vampires always take yourselves so seriously." His eyes bugged out in surprise. "Yeah, I know you're a creature of the night. Bringer of death, sucker of blood, needer of tans, so on and so forth. And oddly enough, I'm still unimpressed."
"You will take me back to the trolls."
Vampire mind tricks are dependent on their glamour, and with my nice view straight to his white corpse eyes, he just looked silly. I let my face go blank and nodded slowly. "Yes. The trolls. Back. With me. Cannot form. Complete sentences." I shook my head. "Yeah, so not happening."

  1. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first, mainly because Lend was almost MIA for the whole book. Still a cute world and fun series though.
