Editorial Reviews


'Carrie Jones is the real thing: a talented author. Her detailing is exquisite, her powers of observation, superb' Tim Wynne-Jones, author 'If you asked Stephen King and Stephenie Meyer to co-author a book, they would come up with Need' Justine magazine 'Entice is my favourite out of the three Need books - the stakes are higher, the action is so much more intense' Writing From The Tub 'Original and riddled with Norse myth, which I love. It definitely stands out in the sea of vampire and werewolf books' The Bookbag --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

CARRIE JONES loves Great Pyrenees dogs, Skinny Cow fudgsicles, and potatoes. In addition to the New York Times bestsellers Need and Captivate, Carrie is also the author of Girl, Hero; Love (and Other Uses for Duct Tape); and Tips on Having a Gay (Ex-)Boyfriend. Carrie grew up in Bedford, New Hampshire, where she once had a séance with uber-comedian Sarah Silverman. She now lives in Ellsworth, Maine.

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.

Ever felt yourself torn between what you should do and what you want to do? How about between two equally appealing love interests? Or maybe even between becoming a pixie or staying human? Well, probably not that last one, and Zara White's decision on that issue was settled toward the ending of Captivate, the book previous to Entice. Still, there's a lot of back and forth in this sequel, with Zara knowing she needs to get to Valhalla to bring Nick back from the dead, yet realizing she's placing herself and those she loves in grave danger by doing so. Having to rely on Astley, her pixie king, seems a burden on some levels but as time progresses, time spent with him seems less and less problematic and more...normal. And that's scary for Zara; almost as scary as crossing a rainbow bridge into the hereafter in search of a boy who very well may hate her upon learning she's chosen to become a pixie in order to save him.

To say there is conflict in Entice is to be a master of understatement. Naturally there's still the major conflict of pixies preying on humans, but there is also conflict between Zara and Astley, Zara and Betty, Zara and the pixies, and Zara and herself. Becoming a pixie was what Zara felt she needed to do in order to rescue Nick, but she now must also assume the role of queen to Astley's king, which complicates things. There is a lot of trying to decide what to do in order to rescue Nick; there is a lot of running around chasing false leads, which honestly got a little irritating after a while (the whole Iceland bit? Could seriously have done without that). The story really picks up when Zara places herself in grave danger and the arrival of her mother, a woman who hates pixies with all her heart.

***May contain spoilers***

Almost 100% of the time I am glad when my favourite book becomes a series because who doesn't love to see more of their favourite characters and learn of all of the crazy adventures they get into since the last time you saw them? As such, stand-alone books typically frustrate me. For days after finishing a stand-alone book I will try to think of everything that could happen to the characters and then I get all depressed since whatever I am thinking is clearly not going to happen. However, that is not the case for this series at all. I wish that "Need" had been a stand-alone book. I really, really, REALLY liked it (I rated it 5/5) and I feel like "Captivate" (which I rated 3/5) and "Entice" are such let-downs and in all honesty they kinda wreck the entire series for me.

There is just such a mishmash of stuff going on in this later books, almost like the author thought "Let's have pixies, and shifters! And let the shifters shift into whatever animal they feel like! And Good pixies and bad pixies! And queen pixies and king pixies! And sparkles- lots and lots of sparkles! Then let's have some Norse gods, FBI agents, paramedics, and terrorist attacks- The more the merrier right?" Wrong. I feel like all of these recent additions are really retracting from the original storyline, which is a shame because it was really great and had the potential to become even better. I feel like more than a bit of editing was needed.

And I know that stories where everything works out in favour or the hero/ heroine are kinda boring and predictable, but I kinda wish that this story was a bit more like those. I mean, can Zara not catch a break (I rambled about this a bit in my review of "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins when Katniss was forever being hurt)?

Is saving Nick really worth the deaths of 2+ characters and the complete abandonment of plot?
Last time we were in Bedford, Maine, Zara had turned pixie to attempt to go to Valhalla and save Nick. Oh, and attend the high school dance. "Entice" picks up immediately--and I mean immediately--after "Captivate". Zara, Issie, Devyn, and Cassidy head to the dance, where they fend off some evil pixies. From there, it is off on the chase for the mysterious Valhalla. The team follows lots of clues in their attempt to save Nick. Meanwhile, pixie attacks increase and more young Befordians go missing. Can Zara find Nick in time?

*******WARNING: Possible spoilers. Skip to "Overall" if you don't want to be spoiled*******

I Liked:
One of the first things I noticed when I started reading "Entice" was that the writing style had greatly improved from "Captivate", which was particularly amazing as I had an ARC of "Entice". Gone (for the most part) was the silly, juvenile sentence structure, the overly simplistic writing, and the lack of descriptions. I actually got a better idea of what Astley looked like, what vehicle Issie drove, what color Issie's hair is (red!! Finally!) and what the surroundings were.
Astley continues to be an intriguing character even if a tragic event in his past is presented in a hokey manner.
This book has a lot of character deaths. One particular death, while unwanted, was well written with good reactions from all our major characters. It also hit all the right notes and left me wanting to cry.
Jones doesn't have our heroine cop out of tough life decisions. Zara turns pixie and must face that fact that if or when she meets up with Nick again, he won't love her. Plus, her own mother has begun to hate Zara for being a pixie.
