Review

Carrie Jones is the real thing: a talented author. Her detailing is exquisite, her powers of observation superb Tim Wynne-Jones, author Praise for Need: If you asked Stephen King and Stephenie Meyer to co-author a book, they would come up with Need Justine magazine 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. There is a surprise around every corner South Wales Argus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Carrie Jones is the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of the Need series, as well as After Obsession with Steven E. Wedel. She is a distinguished alum of Vermont College's MFA Program, and a part-time police dispatcher in Maine because she likes cop stories. Really. She blogs about her dogs, cops, and a bit about writing too at www.carriejonesbooks.com.

More About the Author

Carrie Jones graduated from Vermont College's MFA program for writing. She has edited newspapers and poetry journals and has recently won awards from the Maine Press Association and also been awarded the Martin Dibner Fellowship as well as a Maine Literary Award.

Her first book, TIPS ON HAVING A GAY (EX) BOYFRIEND appeared May 2007. Her second novel tentatively titled,LOVE (AND OTHER USES FOR DUCT TAPE) came out March 2008. Another book, GIRL, HERO was released after August 2008. TIPS won the Maine Literary Award and the Independent Booksellers Award.

The New York Times and internationally best selling, NEED, an urban fantasy/romance appeared December 2008 and has been named a VOYA Best Books of 2008 and is a finalist for a bunch of other awards. It's about human sized pixies, the apocalypse, and being awesome. The follow-up books in the series include CAPTIVATE, ENTICE and ENDURE. I cowrote AFTER OBSESSION, which is creepy with Steven Wedel and I also wrote a picture book called SARAH EMMA EDMONDS, about a cross dressing Civil War spy and hero.

I have co-edited DEAR BULLY, where all this young adult authors volunteered to tell their own true stories about bullying and I am a contributor to DEAR TEEN ME, which is an awesome anthology.

That's boring though, isn't it? Here, let's try it this way.

Carrie Jones likes Skinny Cow fudgsicles and potatoes. She does not know how to spell fudgsicles. This has not prevented her from writing books. She lives with her cute family in Maine, but she grew up in Bedford, NH where she once had a seance with cool uber-comedian Sarah Silverman.

The Meyers brothers are from Bedford, too, so you'd think it would make Carrie funnier, coming from Bedford N.H. Obviously, something didn't work.

Carrie has a large, skinny white dog and a fat cat. Both like fudgicles. Only the cat likes potatoes. This may be a reason for the kitty's weight problem (Shh??? don't tell). Carrie has always liked cowboy hats but has never owned one. This is a very wrong thing. She graduated from Vermont College's MFA program for writing. She has edited newspapers and poetry journals and has recently won awards from the Maine Press Association and also been awarded the Martin Dibner Fellowship as well as a Maine Literary Award.

Still boring? Still with me? How about this....

2. Carrie can not drink coffee. It makes her insane. Do not give her caffeine.
3. Carrie is very responsive to loving strokes on the hair, kind of like a puppy. However, do not do this without asking first unless you are a ridiculously handsome man or an editor who is about to offer her a trillion dollars for the first draft of her novel.
4. Carrie is secretly really, really shy even though she's pathetically outgoing in person. She has a very hard time calling people. So, if you want to talk to her, make the first move. And, if you're her in-Maine female best friend, Jennifer, do NOT get mad at her because she is so bad at returning emails.
5. Carrie sometimes wears mismatched socks, if you do not think this is cool, do not tell her. You will hurt her feelings.
6. Carrie really, really wants you to like her books. Please like her books. PLEEEAASSSEEEE. She'll be your best friend forever. That is, if you want a friend who is shy about calling and emailing and who wears mismatched socks and can't drink caffeine and likes being pet on the head. Hhmmm???.
7. Carrie is not above begging.
8. Carrie, like Belle in TIPS drinks Postum. It's for the same reason, too.
9. Carrie loves Great Pyrenees dogs. They are huge and white, and furry and it looks like they have white eyeliner and mascara on, which is way too cute. Do you have one? Send a picture!
10. Carrie lives in Maine. She has a hard time with this in the winter. It is bleak in Maine in the winter. Imagine everything shades of gray and brown and no green anywhere except for in people's noses. This is Maine in Winter. Maine in summer is the best place in the world, so it's a trade-off. Feel free to invite Carrie to your house in the winter, but not if it's in Greenland, Canada, or anywhere north of Florida.
11. Forget that. She'd still probably come.

There were huge plot twists, both good and sad, but in the end made the book have closure.
Amanda
The characters are all well developed, and Zara's learning to rely on herself is refreshing and well written.
Tamela Mccann
Jones offers a unique twist on pixies and incorporates a lot of Norse mythology, which I like.

Endure. is. FANTASTIC! This is by far the best book of the series. Jones' writing has grown right along with her characters. Everything is done perfectly. I could not put this book down! It's intense, emotional, suspenseful, and action-packed. Endure is a thrill-ride that you cannot miss.

Zara grows so much as a character in this novel. She really becomes comfortable with her pixie half, and I was glad that she did. Also, she's sad about Nick's rejection, that was touched on in the last novel, but she's not completely shattered. She knows that's not the most important thing in the world. That is an extremely refreshing outlook from a YA heroine. It made me like Zara and this series that much more. Astley was wonderful, and I loved him a billion times more in this book than I did in the last one. He is just terrific. Nick got on my nerves again. When he was told how bratty he was, I wholeheartedly agreed. The character development and growth throughout this series has been amazing. I've really enjoyed getting to know these characters and all of their quirks.

The plot is intense, and the pacing is perfect. There is a lot of action, and the romance gets complicated, builds, and changes throughout the course of the novel. I read this book all in one sitting because I had to know whether or not Zara and company were able to save the world. Were they able to, you ask? Well you'll have to pick up the book and find out. In an effort not to spoil anything, I'm going to keep this part of my review kind of vague. There are new creatures introduced, as well as new dimensions/worlds/whatever you want to call them. Things get a whole lot more complicated. People die. There is a lot going on. Things get ugly.

Ahhhh yes! It has been about eighteen months since Entice, the third book of the Need series by Carrie Jones, was releaed. It was a long time to wait to see if Astley could find a way to win the heart of his queen Zara. And after the long wait, what can I say? Endure, the final book in the series, was a very satisfying read to a good series that has gotten more interesting with each succeeding book. I thought that the relationship between Nick and Zara that began the series was nice enough, but once Astley entered the picture in book two I was hooked and have been Team Astley ever since. I was eagerly waiting to see how Jones would write this final book. How would Zara come to terms with her new identity and deal with her growing attachment to the pixie king, Astley? This is the book that pulls every loose end together, and Jones finds a way to wonderfully bring this series to a close.

First of all, Astley. Ahhhh Astley! How I have come to love this character! He is the pixie king who fights against his essential nature to be good, even when it might be easier to give in to his needs and create havoc in the world. He has Zara as his queen, but instead of manipulating her and forcing her to do his will, he gives her space to make her own choices. He doesn't push for a romantic relationship with her, even though it is apparent that he has very strong feelings for her. He works hard to help Zara rescue "her Nick" from the halls of Valhalla despite his love for her. He constantly puts her desires above his own. There is a chemistry between Zara and Astley that does not exist between Zara and Nick. I was rooting for Astley to find a way to make this work. And in this final book of the series Astley does not disappoint.

Originally on Fiction Freak
*Complimentary copy provided. This does NOT affect my review in any way.*

Yet another eARC from NetGalley! I swear, I am addicted to NetGalley now!
Endure is the fourth book in the Need series, and I read the rest of the series about two years ago, I guess. I loved it...until the third book. Entice was a kind of disappointment, I have to admit. Sure, it was supposed to be one of the biggest parts of the series, where Zara finally becomes a pixie to save Nick (and succeeds), but I don't know...it lacked the action, the anticipation, of Need and Captivate. At least, that's how it seemed. Endure definitely made up for that missing part, though.

Nick seems to loathe Zara now that she's a pixie, despite the fact that she changed to save him. He denies it over and over, but when he leaves, Zara doesn't know what to think. She's more isolated than ever. Betty has run off, Nick has gone away, her mom is in another state, and Mrs. Nix is dead. Her mother-in-law, I guess, is helping an evil pixie king capture Zara for their own gains. Her only comfort now is found in Astley, her pixie king, the one who turned her, and one of the only "good pixie kings" and her best friend, Issie. To make matters worse, she now has to deal with Loki, a volcano god that is now after her. How does she know this? An ice giant told her with his dying breath. As a quote from Zara, it was "Twilight Zone creepy". Zara feels like she's being stalked. Others find out about pixies. Astley is poisoned. That's only the first 75 pages. She's afraid, confused, and has every right to be.

I am completely Team Astley. At first, it was Nick, yeah, but by the middle of Entice, I switched sides. Astley is Zara's rock. He's always there for her and always makes sure she's safe.
