Summary: courtesy of goodreads.com 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.

My Review: This was a very quick, fun read. It’s semiserious where the plot goes but Evie is freaking hilarious! I really liked the idea of a secret Paranormal Agency. It reminded me a whole lot of Men in Black the movie. And Evie’s paranormal gift is really neat. I feel bad for her that she has to be stuck living inside the agency and pretty much work for them because they’re scared of what she is.
I really liked this book because of the many different mythical creatures. I love anything fantasy in the real world.
It’s a quick, witty, enjoyable read.
