Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
First-time author White shows the technique and polish of a pro in this absorbing romance, which comes closer than most to hitting the Buffy mark. Evie, 16, works for the IPCA, an organization charged with keeping paranormal beings under control. Evie is the only human who can see through any glamour, and she's an expert at "bag and tag"--stun the target, slap on a tracking bracelet, and send it on for processing. It's a dull, regimented, and sequestered life from Evie's point of view, and she longs for normal things like a school locker and a driver's license. When a shape-shifter, Lend, is captured, Evie is drawn to this boy her own age who has lived in the normal world. Lend tells her uncomfortable truths about herself, but shares his secrets, too, and when Evie's certainties suddenly and terribly break down, Lend becomes the person she can count on. The action is fast; fun and fear are in abundance; and Lend's father is actually a cool grownup. How's that for supernatural? Ages 12–up. (Sept.)

“From the very first page of Paranormalcy, I fell completely in love. It’s funny, light-hearted, sweet, and clever, while at the same time it’s unusual, romantic, mysterious, and even at brief times a little dark and scary. It’s everything that I love in a book!”

“The most imaginative vampire/werewolf/supernatural series going.”
VOYA - Laura Woodruff
A tribe of Trillium rats, who are large, long lived, and highly civilized, lives under a human city in the Catacombs. Now controlled by High Minister Killdeer and his vicious commander Billycan, older rats can remember the bloody war that destroyed their benevolent rulers. Drunken, disgusting Killdeer exacts tribute from every family, kidnaps children for his army, and sleeps with Chosen Ones, while albino lab rat Billycan brutally carries out his commands. When Killdeer chooses lovely Clover, the last female of her clan, her uncle Juniper decides it is time to act. Juniper, who survived the coup, has built the secret city of Nightshade in preparation for the day of Killdeer's defeat and the restoration of freedom and peace. Many rat characters enliven the action prior to the final showdown. Besides rats, Juniper and his militia are assisted by talking earthworms and one small boy who opens doors for them, since the Nightshade exit is inside a room in his house. Human terms are generally used, except for Billycan and Killdeer, who are described as loathsomely ratlike. This first novel has a satisfying but open-ended conclusion, promising a sequel. Reminiscent of Redwall and the Warriors series, Nightshade City is likely to please most fantasy lovers. Reviewer: Laura Woodruff
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—First in a trilogy, this clever, must-have debut focuses on sassy Evie, 16, who calls the International Paranormal Containment Agency home. Armed with her unique ability to see through all paranormal "glamours" and her trusty pink taser, Evie bags, tags, and helps IPCA track and contain a variety of familiar creatures. Despite her unconventional life (no origin story, mermaid best friend, werewolf colleagues, etc.), she considers herself to be pretty normal—until shape-shifting elemental and extremely cute Lend breaks into IPCA looking for answers and ironically becomes one of the agency's latest puzzles. The more pressing concern: Who's been murdering paranormals? Lend's arrival; fae ex-boyfriend's (literally) hot, increasingly threatening advances; unsettling dreams; and a well-planned attack on the agency force Evie to face surprising revelations about IPCA and herself. White's storytelling successfully balances the fun and the sinister. There's an interesting mix of magic and technology. The pace is brisk with plenty of action. White's faeries (not vamps) are the beautiful and manipulative paranormals to watch out for, a refreshing change for some readers. Characterization is consistent, though Evie is the most fleshed out. A perfect blend of normal/supernatural, she simultaneously doubts her genetic makeup while yearning for and worrying about typical teenage concerns. Featuring a clever, kick-butt heroine channeling both Buffy and a PG Sookie, this book will likely fly off library shelves.—Danielle Serra, Cliffside Park Public Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews

Evie wants a normal teenage life, but at the IPCA Center(International Paranormal Containment Agency) life is decidedly not normal. Evie's unique ability to see past the glamours of all paranormals to their essence is a valued asset in the efforts to contain werewolves, vampires, hags and the like. Trained to handle their capture, Evie becomes attracted to her most recent catch, Lend, a unique paranormal who can change his look to match anyone around him. It's not his hot teen looks that pull her in, but the magically smooth and fluid way he seems underneath. Add in a faerie who is determined to pull her into real evil anda truly murderous unknown paranormal being attacking the Center for extra zing.Most of the fun of this novel is in the play between this imagined world and Evie's desire for such normal teen amusements as dates, shopping and prom. Her first-person narration is light, but she's appealingly determined to do the right thing when all else is upside down.Good, romantic—and a little weird—entertainment. (Paranormal romance. 10 & up)

Lisa McMann
“Strong characters, a clever premise, and a hilarious voice all team up to make Paranormalcy the most refreshing paranormal debut of the year.”
Becca Fitzpatrick
“A fast, flirty roller coaster of a ride. This story was everything I hoped for—sassy, light-hearted and downright scary. Oh, bleep! I’m in love!”
Aprilynne Pike
“Paranormalcy seduced me. The two sexy paranormals who vie for Evie’s affections each had their own victory; one won Evie’s heart and the other won mine.”
Carrie Ryan
“Kiersten White creates the perfect blend of light and dark. Even as the stakes rose higher, Paranormalcy’s narrator, Evie, kept a smile on my face with her cunning wit. I can’t wait for more!”
Newsday
“The most imaginative vampire/werewolf/supernatural series going.”
Booklist
“A fast-paced, entertaining debut. Alternately funny and tragic but never maudlin, White’s debut will have broad appeal among fantasy fans.”
Romantic Times
“Buffy meets The X-Files in this darkly sexy story.”

    Refreshing.

    I shouldn't have liked this book. Vampires? Check. Werewolves? Check. Fairies? Check. Secret agency? Check. Dark prophecy? Check. I'm kinda tired of these elements in YA.

    So what made PARANORMALCY so different? The execution. It is FUNNY.

    Exhibit A: Tasey, the sparkly, hot pink Taser Evie carries as a weapon against the above-mentioned vamps, weres, and fey.

    Exhibit B: Oh bleep. The language is clean because Evie bleeps out her own curse words. It's adorable and funny and my online friends may be adopting it. (And there's a GREAT reason why, too, it's not just a tic.)

    Exhibit C: Evie herself. She really is a normal girl. She loves pink and teen soap operas a la 90210. She has every reason to be angsty and melodramatic - but she isn't. Yet she's a very real character, she doesn't take the plot developments lightly: she questions herself, her world - she just doesn't languish in it.

    Exhibit D: Lend. Lend is the Love Interest and he's adorable. No possibly-going-to-abuse-you bad-boy here. No I-have-personal-demons loner here. He's so normal. Not super mature and gallant, not whiny or angsty or disturbed, either.

    My biggest - okay, really my only - problem with this book is the marketing. I don't know if it's the same on the book itself as it is on the ARC. There's a cover quote from Aprilynne Pike, the book 'seduced me.' and she says on the back, of how one love interest got Evie and the other one got her - this is misleading. There's no love triangle and tone isn't dark and seductive. Just to clear that up. Loved this book!

    I Bleeping loved this book!

    Oh Bleep! I Bleeping loved this book! This was so cute. Evie is a lovably character, she even has a pink taser she named "Tasey" that she uses to neutralize or "neuter" paranormals.  I felt drawn into the story more then some other recent reads. Evie is special, she can see past paranormal glamours (a sort of fake appearance that is projected to the world). It is this ability that has made her an asset to the International Paranormal Containment Agency (IPCA) in their attempt to regulate and contain paranormals. Since Evie is the only one of her kind she is kept on a tight leash by Raquel, her boss/guardian. Evie has always thought of herself as normal but it turns out she is more then she seems and she may be more dangerous then anyone thought possible.

    Evie's best friend, Lish (a mermaid) added humor to the story with her computer generated vocabulary. Since she lives underwater she is unable to speak like a human so a computer does her talking for her. Swear words are not translated so anytime Lish uses one it just comes out as "bleep." Evie picks this up and tends to bleep things a lot. lol

    Reth, Evie's ex (a faerie) is alluring but dangerous. He seems to have a hidden agenda that Evie cant quite seem to figure out. On top of all her issues with Reth paranormals start turning up dead and no one can explain why. When a strange shape shifting boy breaks into the IPCA Evie is drawn to him. He has a life on the outside: a family, friends, and even a locker! I must admit it was a little weird to see the attraction of Lend when he is first introduced since she can see under his glamour to what he really looks like. He is described by Evie as looking like water and light.. But my hesitation faded as the story went on and I totally fell in love with Lend right along with Evie. They are perfect for each other. He knows that Evie loves him for who he really is since she can see who he really is and Lend warms Evie's heart (you'll understand that when you read it). Together Evie and Lend will have to uncover a dark faerie prophecy and save all paranormal creatures.

    I highly recommend this book. And if you love at much as I do you will be happy to know it is a series!!! Yay!! Supernaturally (Paranormalcy #2) is scheduled to release September 2011!

    Reading Teen Review

    From the very first page of Paranormalcy, I fell completely in love with Evie! She was "bleeping" fantastic! It's not that often that I come away from a book, just loving the girl that is the "point of view". Even in Twilight, which I loved, I found myself often thinking, "I understand why she loves him....but what on earth does he see in her?" This was absolutely not the case in this book! Evie was funny, witty, intelligent, thoughtful, kind, and beautiful! What's not to love? I found myself cracking up laughing at her sarcastic remarks, and her witty comebacks. I loved that she had insecurities, but that they didn't hold her back. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind, even if she thought people might think she was crazy for saying it. I just loved everything about her! And the relationship between Evie and Lend was just perfect. Lend was such a fun character to get to know. I love how he "wore" different appearances all the time, and that Evie just didn't care at all what he looked like. It was so refreshing to see their relationship progress over time, as they got to really know each other. They didn't just meet and fall madly in love without any real reason. It was perfectly sweet!

    I also loved the storyline. It was so unique! It was kind of like "Men in Black" meets "Van Helsing" meets "Never Been Kissed". It has something for everyone! It's funny, light-hearted, sweet, and clever, while at the same time it's unusual, romantic, mysterious, and even at brief times a little dark and scary. It's everything that I love in a book!

    This is the part where I normally say what I didn't like about the book. I have nothing. There is honestly nothing I would change about this book! When I was reading it, I kept laughing, and sighing, and smiling, and Kit (my 15 yr old daughter) would keep saying, "What?" And I would just say, "Oh, you have to read this book....you will love it!" And what makes me happiest, is not only that I think this book is ok (appropriate) for her to read, but that I want her to read it. I can't wait until she reads it, because I know it will be one of those books that we talk about and quote to each other forever!

    Bn, when are you going to do something to all these plot spoiling posters on here that persist in revealing every detail of a book ruining it for other readers? 98% of the posts for this book are plot spoilers, some even contain sentences from the book. I mean, really...bn, come on already. Ban these posters and delete their spoilers.

    Good Read

    I read a lot about this book before I decided to pick it up. It was a pretty good read. It's interesting and vivid. Pretty humorous as well. I did like this book. Yet I am on the fence about whether or not I will continue reading the series. I was interested while I read but after I put it down, it does not stay with me. This is not one of the series I will be an avid reader to. But that is just my personal (lack of) connection to this book. Yet I will recommend this to any YA paranormal readers.

    Would Not Recommend

    I was extremely excited to receive this book in the mail along with a few other YA books with good reviews. I had read positive reviews for Paranormalcy everywhere so I was sure I was going to love the book. Unfortunately, I did not even like it. I found Evie to be immature for someone her age. She acted more like a preteen than a 16 year old. I also found it hard to believe that so many readers found her to be such a refreshing, strong protagonist when she broke down crying every five minutes. I didn't feel a connection to any of the characters. In fact, I did not even feel the slightest bit sad for the ones who died. Overall this book is not one that I would recommend or read twice.

    Fun and Entertaining

    This book was a very light read, funny and entertaining. I give it three stars because the main character talks like a valley girl and is kinda shallow and drama-queenish. But overall I had a good laugh and was entertained. It kind of reminded me of the Men in Black movies only with a teenage girl sans the black suit.

    Right now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to read to this

    Right now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to read to this book. I've had it in my "To Read" stack for 6 months and I'm really mad I left it there so long. This book was wonderful. Very rarely do I find a book that can make me (both) laugh and cry; but, this was one of those pieces of work.

    Kiersten White is wonderful at making you understand the true emotions that her characters feel. The love that Evie feels for Lish (her best friend who is also a mermaid), the loathing she feels for Reth (a faerie that seems to stalk her), and the confusion that Lend (an unknown paranormal creature who can steal the appearance of others), brings into her life. Plus, I admire any author that can bring a young adult book to life without any cursing. Instead you get Lish's hilarious monotone voice "bleep"ing.

    If you're looking for a book to read to in small intervals, this is NOT the book for you. This book sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.

    This book is so bleeping cute. Funny, Witty, Sarcastic and I LOVED IT.

    I really truly loved this book. I am also 30 years old :) Not trying to hide it. If you are into the paranormal love thing, than this is for you. It's light, and not dark and heavy like a lot of paranormal stuff.

    At first I thought " crap this is going to be bubble-gummy" But in all honesty this book is adorable and I was telling people about it FAR before I was finished.

    It's not too long, and an easy read. The only problem is you will NOT want to put it down. I am SO hoping that it will be a series.

    Recommended for anybody intrested in anything paranormal!

    Kiersten White is such an amazing author, the book paranormalcy took a beautiful outlook on paranormal myths and with it told an awe-spiring love story. Evie is a main charecter that every reader can relate to on some aspect or another. And, in a way, we are all empty ones. Just the mysterious model on the cover was enough to reel me in, by the time I turned the page, I was convinced I knew Evie and her story. The story itself was also perfectly imaginative, the sensory details were clear. I felt Reths burn, my heart pumped in the presence of Lend, and when the time came, Evie's triumph, was my triumph as well. Don't get me wrong, the book is'nt perfect, but it's enough to make me excited for the second book.

    Totally recommend it, there's humor, romance, and so much never slowing plot, not one pointless chapter like there are in so many other books. You'll be saying oh bleep (inside joke from the book), whenever Rehn comes around.

    It's Bleeping Awesome!

    Evie is not the typical teenage girl. She sees through paranormal glamours and can totally kick paranormal butt, especially with her special pink rhinestone taser -- lovingly named Tasey. In being able to do so, she has become a priceless asset to IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency) - an agency that "bags and tags" paranormals living in our world. One night, there is a break-in at the agency and Evie catches the intruder - a shapeshifter named Lend that is like no paranormal Evie (or anyone) has ever seen before. Evie is intrigued. But as Evie learns more about Lend and why he's there, the more questions come up for Evie about herself, as well as questions about the agency that she has called home for so long.

    Take the humor and wit of some of my favorite urban fantasies, mix in my favorite paranormals, and add a dash of teenage drama and romance - and you have Paranormalcy. Honestly, this is probably the most refreshing paranormal YA book that I've read for 2010. It's the perfect mix of light and dark, as well as action and a little bit of fluff.

    For me, Evie is a perfect example of what I would call the best YA teen heroine in a fantasy story. Yes, she can kick butt and take names like it's no one business, but she's also still just a teen that yearns for a taste of normal teenage life. She's flawed, isn't perfect, and can whine with the best of them. Yet at the end of the day, she's still herself, who she wants to be and she's a fierce friend who sticks up and avenges her friends like it's no ones business. Reading reviews in the past, I thought I was going to get an overdose of uber-girly, "OMG, PINK!" moments. While Evie does love the color pink, it's not unbearingly so and, honestly, she makes it really cute. That, and her obsession with a teenage drama tv show. It's adorable.

    And the guys? Yeah, we can't have a story without some hot guys ... and we definitely got that as well. You can't help but love Lend and Reth? Well, he frustrates you to no end, but there's the intrigue there as well! I can't say that I'm a huge fan of how the vampires were portrayed to look under their glamours, but I was able to look past that to enjoy the story.

    White's voice and writing was just ... perfect. I don't know how else to describe it. She's excellent at provoking your emotions at just the right spots. When Evie is sad, you're sad. When she's happy, you're happy. When she wants to slap Reth, you want to jump into the story and do it for her. There are questions throughout that story that are sometimes answered and some that may stay with you until the very end - maybe even through the next book. When I finished this book, I was completely satisfied with what I had just read.. but I was definitely left with a small thirst to quench with the next book.

    This book is hilarious, exciting, and sweet. I really connect with the main character. It's a great book, and I recommend it to everyone!
