Let me just say this book is definitely for fans of paranormal. There were all types of paranormal characters. Zombies, werewolves/shifters, and fairies! Oh, My! It is a very funny read with some action. It reminds me of Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins, has that same witty and unique cast of characters, with a little mystery. It was very fast paced which I think made it lack a little in plot development. Usually, I really enjoy a quick pace to the book and not that much description, but we were thrown a lot of information in the beginning. Also, I realize this is a second book in the series, but I am pretty sure you don't need to read the first one to understand this one, though it seems to me like it would be good to start there.
Another thing I found lacking was there isn't much world building. I don't know if it's because I hadn't read the first book, but it kind of just jumps into the thick of things. What I did like was I could really relate to the main character. She just had this awesome voice and kick ass attitude. And she experiences a change really quickly, from a more shallow and careless version of herself to a more accepting and open individual.
If you a fan of Hex Hall or just paranormal you will like the different writing style of this book. It's funny, sweet, endearing. Not really my type of book, I like a little more development and a little more character and world background, but still overall enjoyable.
Sora Starwind just wants to have a normal life. Well, as normal as a banished teenage fairy living in a halfway house for paranormals can have. Squashing her magic mishaps is just part of the equation.
Catching the eye of a certain hottie named Liam Crawford would be a plus, if she could only figure out how to not act like a complete dork around him. Then a surprise visit from her estranged mother brings an ultimatum that threatens to turn Sora’s world upside down.
Unexpectedly faced with her past, Sora has to find the inner strength to deal with her banishment, but there’s more to her story than even she knows…
