A winning combination for KS3 readers' School Librarian Praise for Captivate: 'This is a thrilling story. I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the Twilight Saga ... This tale has every single emotion you could possibly feel hidden inside of it, happiness, humour, love, loss and hope.

***May contain spoilers***

So the other day I read and reviewed "Need" by Carrie Jones. I just picked the book up at the store mainly for the fact that it was in the bargain bin for $5.99 in hardcover (shame on them! It was worth more than the $5.99 price tag) and I had seen it here and there in the blog world, so I figured that it if other bloggers were reading it, well then there must be something good there. And was there ever! I loved the book so much and it easily became one of the best books that I have read in some time. I thought that the plotline was very unique, combining pixies and weres, and that the characters were totally relatable/ likable/ people I would be proud to call my friends in real life. So obviously when I finished it I knew that I had to get my hands on the second book in the series, "Captivate". I was positive that this story was going to blow me out of the water like "Need" did, however, I am quite disappointed/ let-down by it, and I am even more disappointed because I read quite a few Amazon reviews and every single one of them was positive and every single one of them rated the book as 5 stars out of 5 stars, so I just feel like I should have liked the book since everyone else did- but in all honesty, I didn't.

When I first read Nick refer to Zara as "baby" I "awwww"ed, I thought it was cute and found myself thinking, "Look y'all! They are so in love!" But 5 minutes later I just wanted to pull my hair out- it became very old very quickly. Do people in love really talk like that? Tacking "baby","sweetheart", and other equally lovey-dovey/ barf-tastic (to all those surrounding them) pet-names to the end of every sentence? All I can say is thank goodness that I am destined to be a lonely cat lady for all of my days!

Format: Hardcover
Zara and her friends locked away her father and his pixies hoping to save the humans of this town, but unfortunately nothing is that easy. It seems that more and more pixies comes to town and they need to take care of them to. Why would they come to Maine? Can they feel there's something wrong with he king? Doubts are confirmed when Astley shows up in town to claim the territory as his own. But Zara won't let that happen.

I LOVED Captivate as much or even more then Need, I really feel for the characters and so much is at stake in Captivate. Zara is now stronger and more confident, and driven by a strong need to protect the ones she loves, and pretty much everybody in town. But protecting them proves to be one difficult task.

Devyn is getting better and unfortunately for Is, an old girlfriend of his shows up in the picture and seems very interested in him again. Poor Is is broken-hearted, I really felt bad for the poor girl, she's always so sweet and caring.

I have to admit I had some tears boiling under the surface at some moments of the story, but I won't tell you why and when, it wouldn't be nice.
But seriously if you loved Need, run and get yourself a copy of Captivate. As the title say, I was Captivated by the story and read it in only a few hours.

It's passionate, engaging, emotional and honest. Everything you can ask for!

Format: Hardcover
CAPTIVATE by Carrie Jones starts off a couple of months after Zara and her friends figured out a way to solve the pixie problem - but they knew it was only temporary.

A new king, a much younger, good-looking king, comes into the picture and thinks that Zara is destined to be his queen.

Astley, the new king, thinks that pixies are like humans and that some are good and some are evil. But when the trapped pixies become a problem once again, Zara must decide whether or not to turn into a pixie to keep her loved ones safe.

While I enjoyed CAPTIVATE, I didn't love it as much as I did NEED. Without giving away why, a little over half-way through the book, it became so sad for me. I felt so badly for Zara and could feel her pain.

That being said, I'm not sure what I feel about Astley, the new king. While I love Nick, the werewolf and Zara's boyfriend, I found myself at times loving Astley, too. I couldn't decide if he was truly a good pixie, or if he was just scheming and tricking Zara.

The ending of the book is a definite cliffhanger for me, and I can't wait to read the third book in the series!
