Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads
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.




'Eyes like streams of melting snow,
cold with the things she does not know,
Heaven above and Hell beneath,
Liquid flames to hide her grief,
Death, death,death with no release,
Death, death, death with no release.



BOOK REVIEW: 


This book was great!!! I  can really see it made into a movie and I think from Kiersten's blog page it is going to be made into a movie.

I got a bit of a 'Men in Black' feel with the IPCA = International Paranormal Containment Agency but that's as far as it goes.

Evie = Evelyn 16 years old works for IPCA bagging, tagging, tracking of Paranormals that need to be kept organised for humans safety. After all vampires wandering around with humans, is like dangling raw meat in front of a dog and telling them to behave and not touch. Evie uses 'tasey' her pink taser to stun and slap an ankle tracker on the paranormal she is assigned to. 

Reth is one of the faerie escorts that gets summoned to bring Evie safely along the faerie paths back to IPCA. If you know their name you can order them about, but be careful of your words...........

The guys are drool worthy . Lend is just a beautiful guy...sigh.
Reth = Lorethan , although gorgeous he is still a faerie and not to be trusted. Reth has you drooling over him, yet confused. Faeries have secrets...........

Alisha = Lish is Evie's bff, a mermaid. They have a love of a soapie, 'Easton Heights'. Lish must watch through her glass home. I love that Lish's computer doesn't let her swear it 'bleeps', so the bleeps were fun.

All hell starts to break loose when somebody/thing is killing Paranormals. Evie and her new friends must band together to help Evie understand why this is happening and how to stop it.

Evie just wants to go to high school, have a locker get her drivers license and go to prom...but IPCA and the Paranormal killer have other ideas.

QUOTES:

I watched it as if in slow motion. The gremlin made straight for me, a rabid gleam in its eyes. It leaped into the air and I kicked out hard, sending it sailing down the hall, right into the arms of the containment worker chasing it.
'Goal!' I shouted. Dang, I was good.

"Evelyn." My name in his mouth was like a caress. "Why are you fighting me? You want to be with me. And I want no one else forever."

I snuggled into his side more, squeezing his hand and laying my head on his shoulder.......
......When the movie was almost over ( best movie ever- no idea what is was, though, didn't really care).....
