But you know, she never feels like a Mary Sue.

I applaud Kiersten for keeping me guessing. Too often major things happen to characters and the impact of those events is glossed over for the sake of advancing sereis plot.

I also loved the Whedonesque banter between Evie and her IPCA victims, but that was, sadly, less prevalent in this sequel. Now, I liked Paranormalcy well enough because of its heroine, Evie, and the story’s tendency to poke fun at the paranormal craze.

And if you like said vampire slaying goddess, you will love Evie who job doesn’t involve slaying per se, just containment. Seriee is just as great as the first book. She seems well aware of YA tropes and avoids them at every turn with her refreshing characters, unexpected plot points, and authentic relationships. The writing in this one is pretty bad. It wasn’t a big one and it wasn’t kritsen of a distraction, but it still bugged me.
