- Evie, the main character, doesn’t swear. She bleeps. In the first book Paranormalcy we meet Evie’s best friend Lish, a mermaid living in a tank where the computer refuses to translate her dirty mouth. So Lish sounds 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.”
- Her weapon of choice is a taser bedazzled with pink rhinestones and nicknamed Tasey. It made me snort-laugh. More than once.
Kiersten White has a funny bone and knows how to use it. This series is highly entertaining and an easy read. It is fun fluff. Evie is hilarious and does not take herself or any situation too seriously. My biggest complaint is that I do not believe that teenagers say things like “Golly, that was my first kiss, how’d I do.” I paraphrase, but still. I have hopes that the rather funny love interest Lend will overcome the blandness that bogged him down in book two, Endlessly. He might not be lame: it could have been because his dashing back and forth to college didn’t leave much time for any solid evidence that these two were actually emotionally connected. (I would also like to point out being a college freshman is FUN. Don't leave on the weekends, Lend!)
In Paranormalcy Evie longs for a locker and high school and all things normal; in Supernaturally she realizes that she misses the International Paranormal Containment Agency, where she worked and grew up. Despite trying for normal, Evie falls deeper into the paranormal world and faery politics because of the Puck-ish Jake. The blurb for Endlessly doesn’t reveal much yet, but I want to see how Evie’s adventures come to a close. Does this title mean she is immortal!?! Discuss.
