Book Description

Dec 22 2009 Need
Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first June 1 2012
By Sam
Originally reviewed on my blog: [...]

Story: I liked this story much more than the first book of the series (Need). I found that this plot line is better developed and more captivating. I wanted to keep reading and to know what was going to happen. And the end of the novel made me itch to read the third of the series. Unlike the first book (where I pretty much predicted everything that was going to happen), this book was different. It surprised me! Yay! That is an accomplishment in my eyes. One BIG surprise in particular really took me off guard. Ahhh! If you read this book, you will know what I'm talking about!

Characters: All the main characters are the same, likeable characters. Zara develops quite nicely in this book. And there is a new character, Astley, who I think I like. Astley is the new king pixie in town, but he claims to be different - he claims to be good. I like the way he is presented (just hope we can trust him!).

Writing: The writing quality is better in this book. It is still a bit weak, but it was able to captivate my interest. There are a few errors (or typos), but nothing really worth mentioning. I only mention the errors because there were soooo many in the first book. Big improvement here!

Uniqueness/Creativity: This book was also much better in the uniqueness and creativity department. Jones came up with unique and creative elements that I've never heard of before. So, yay! Good for her! And I didn't feel like I was reading Twilight this time!!

Overall: Overall, this book was good. It kept my interest so that I wanted to keep reading. I am itching to read the third book of the series! Can't wait to see what happens! Would I recommend this book?

3.0 out of 5 stars A Let Down... Jan. 12 2011
By Avery Greaves TOP 500 REVIEWER
***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!
