Editorial Reviews


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.

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.

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.
