“For Evie, life is anything but normal. She works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, has a possessive faerie for an ex, is falling for a shape-shifter, and is the only person in the world who can see through paranormals' glamours. White's debut novel had me mesmerized from the very first page to the last. Warning: This is one of those books that will seduce readers and leave them wanting more!”
— Grace Firari, The Velveteen Rabbit Bookshop, Fort Atkinson, WI
