Entice by Carrie Jones 5 of 5 stars.
Have you been pixie kissed?
Zara and Nick were soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that's not quite how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back--if they can figure out how to get there. Meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But even if Zara and her friends can find the way to Valhalla, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't just turned pixie. . . she's Astley's queen. (Book blurb)
With Nick gone and creeper pixie king Frank's minions still on the loose, Bedford is awash in danger. Zara is still trying to come to terms with the fact that she is a pixie, the same as the creatures that tore her family apart, the thing her friends hate. But Astley is there beside her, helping her to find herself again, as well as to save Nick from Valhalla. But that proves much harder than anyone expected. Twist, turns, and dead ends in the quest leave behind a string of dead allies and despare in Zara's heart.
As new and old enemies crawl out of the woodwork will peace-loving Zara be able to defeat them and save her love while still dealing with the judgment of her friends and family? Especially since her heart is suddenly confused by the attraction she feels toward Astley, her king?
Entice is a heart-stopping, laugh-out-loud, swoony addition to an already addictive series. Carrie Jones has made me fall in love with the characters all over again in what is probably the most action-packed Need Series book so far! I adored Zara and Astley's adventures as they tried to find the way to Valhalla and dealt with their pasts at the same time. I didn't want to put it down for a second, but I didn't want it to end either!
The added depths to the characters has made me change my opinions about them entirely. I thought the last book was a shocker, but this one was about twice as surprising. I am now, officially, Team Astley. Which I never thought would happen. But it did. And I also have a great deal more respect for Zara. Despite everything, she wasn't willing to give up.
The writing, as always, was amazing. The was Carrie Jones can switch so easily between beautiful description, teenage angst, philosophical observations, and snarkiness cracks me up. I love it. Zara may have grown up, but her voice hasn't changed from book one.
Humor, romance, drama, and suspense are the basis for this spectacular series that I would truly suggest for anyone. If you love your paranormal fantasies original and your heroines hilarious, you will adore the Need Series.
