I can Honestly say that I enjoyed this book more that Need. Why? Carrie Jones – Author of the Need Series – was fearless with this book. I mean, she took things to a whole new level, doing things that – like I said in a past review – leave me like this: She’s never gonna do it. Nope. No way. Never. Wait…. Oh My God she wouldn’t. She Can’t. OH MY GOD SHE’S DOING IT!. OMG!!. OH MY G-…. She did it.
But maybe I’m going way ahead. So, things seem to be finally normal and Zara and Nick have and awesome relationship and stuff, Zara’s friends – Is, Devin, Betty, etc. – just seem very sparkly to me, cute characters and everything nice and shiny. And then there’s Astley. Recently introduced to the story… things start to shaken up a bit, and the first OMG comes… and BOY, it’s a serous OH MY GOD!!!... really, ZOmygod… I’ve you’ve read the book you’ll know what I mean, if not… I’ll give you a clue. It has something to do with a character whose name starts with an N… and ends with ick… It was SUPPER shocking… but not as shocking as what came next…
A few stuff happens, including an obsessed Zara, serious decision, and Astley creeping into Zara’s life. There’s a HUGE problem in Zara’s life – obviously – and things with the Pixies are starting to get complicated, with the other King locked up, others are interest in ruling his territory, and they are not all good kings… So Astley offers a solution, to make Zara his queen and fight together… and I mean together together…
And shocking decision number two happens. And OH. MY. FREXING. GOD. I LOVE Zara… and Carrie Jones…
By the end of the book I had completely forgotten ‘bout Nick – almost didn’t care ‘bout him really - and had fallen in love with Astley. Long story short: I’ve been completely captivated by this book.
Seriously, one of those rare cases where the sequel is actually better than the first one.
Like they say… First I discovered the Need… then I was Captivated… now I’m ready to be Enticed… -To be continue xD!.
"Loving you is a full-time job. It's a great job, don't get me wrong. It's the best job in the universe. But it's not easy"
"A pixie's true skin color is blue. Cookie Monster, Grover, and other lovable Muppets are also blue. Do not confuse the two. Muppets don't kill you. Usually"
"He's going macho again," Dev says, totally nonchalantly, while he unlocks the door.
"He's always going macho," Is adds. "It must be the wolf thing."
"I am not going macho. I am always macho," Nick says.
