Synopsis:Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, but still. Normal.
Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.(from goodreads.com)
Now, since I can't put any coherent thoughts into this review (sleep deprivation is dragging me down) I'm going give some small ones and call it a day.
First off, Evie, as I said. Wonderful character, totally funny.
Lend, the main male lead was adorable and a shape shifter so he really had me wrapped around his little finger.
Reth, the psycho faery, sounded super hot, but totally out of his freaking mind. Like in the sense that he belongs in is very own sealed off room in a very secure loony ward. Now, given that he's fey it's not really that odd.
Lish, Evie's best friend and also a mermaid was fun and really an amazing character. I mean who thinks to give the main character a best friend who lives in an aquarium and talks through a computer. Genius I tell you. A bleeping genius!
So all those who haven't had a chance to read this book, you really should. It was a refreshing take on vampires, werewolves, faeries and entire melodic group of fantastical creatures that will not leave you bored. Because, with a pink taser, faery paths, a boy made of water and a crazy killer on the loose what is there to be bored for?!!
“Lend?” Raquel asked.
“Yes, as in, lend me your self.” He shimmered into Raquel again.
“Why not Borrow?” I asked. “Better yet, Steal?"
"Yes, I have a driver's license"
I leaned back against the wall, sighing. "Man, that must be so cool."
"It ranks right up there with lockers. In fact, sometimes I put my license inside my locker, and it's so cool I worry that the whole thing might explode with the sheer coolness of it all."
Lish tried to swear--which is always funny, because the computer won't translate it. It went something like this: "Bleep stupid bleep bleep faeries and their bleep bleep bleep obsessions. He had better stop bleep bleep bleep the bleep bleep rules or I will bleep bleep bleep the little bleeeeeeeeeeep."
