Oh, Evie, how I missed you. She has such an awesome voice. She's not afraid to be herself, that is, her vampire butt-kicking, caring self. I love that she'll just sit down and have conversations with vampires and trolls instead of running the other way and screaming or automatically pulling out Tasey. For all Evie's awesomeness, though, she is quite insecure. That's a perfectly good flaw for a sixteen-almost-seventeen-year-old though! She's not running around being moody like most paranormal girls, she's genuinely worried people won't/don't like her. Sometimes I wanted to shake her and say "you are seriously awesome!" but I completely understand.

White has created such a fantastically unique paranormal world. I love learning about all the paranormal creatures from this new point of view and it's quite funny when some of the things just aren't quite as magical as I (or Evie) thought. I found Supernaturally to be a bit darker than Paranormalcy, but it's not a bad thing. It actually works completely since Evie is growing up and learning things she didn't know before, so we are as well.

I was sad that Lend and Evie were having relationship problems, especially since that seems to be what happens in every second book with a relationship. That being said, I thought this one completely worked. The problems were understandable and didn't feel like they were just brought out of thin air. I hurt for both Lend and Evie in all their problems together, but I really felt for Lend knowing what everything looked like from his POV. They're such a cute and cuddly couple that I just wanted to reach in and give them both a hug when they were fighting.

Jack was quite the interesting character. He just kind of popped out of nowhere and then snuck up on me. I was torn most of the time. On the one hand, I felt I shouldn't like him because he was causing Evie and Lend problems, but on the other hand, he was quite likable.

Final thoughts: This is a great followup to Paranormalcy. White creates such a refreshing paranormal world with a lead girl harboring a personality far more sparkly than any other I've encountered. If you love paranormal romance, but could go for a little less "damsel in distress" vibe, this is definitely your book.
