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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! Jan. 15 2010
By Tynga's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Jan. 9 2010
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars It did not disappoint March 20 2010
By tia
I really enjoyed the first book "Need" and have been dying to read this one. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. It was so well written and by the end I wanted MORE! New characters were introduced which kept it interesting. What I really enjoyed was the love between Zara and Nick, and how you could almost feel her love and pain and it made you want to cry right along with her. Please let the next book be just as good if not better, and don't let it become silly and frivolous like some of the other series I have loved. I will be waiting impatiently for the next one!!
