Vampires. Werewolves. Faeries. Shape-shifters.
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, and even worse, that she is at the centre of a dark prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
This is a YA urban fantasy that has a wide range of supernaturals to satisfy every interest. Evie is witty, quirky, and kickass. I loved how she gets excited over simple things that typical teenagers don’t even notice and has an obsession with all things pink and sparkly.
The relationship between Evie and Lend feels so natural. It isn’t an instant thing, it evolves and grows the more they get to know each other, and I just loved their witty banter.
This is well-plotted, nicely paced and engaging—a perfect read between some of the darker, more angsty urban fantasy.
