Need & Captivate by Carrie Jones

Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara does’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.
Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.

Enchantingly Dark! The pixies in this book gives me the creeps. When I read the description of the pixies for the first time and the mention of Stephen King in this book, a picture of IT flashed in my mind. Yes the scary clown guy from Stephen King's IT with all those scary teeth. But of course these pixies do not have red noes and hair or a ton of make-up on but IT is on the same level of scariness as those Any who..the pixies in this book have silver eyes, blue skin, and those shark like teeth. On the not so scary side of this story is Zara the protagonist, Betty or Gram, Issie, Nick, and Devyn. They are all likable characters and are easy to relate to which made this book a lot more enjoyable to read. I hope Carrie makes this a long series because I want so much more of all these characters.


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.

Devastatingly Beautiful! This book takes you through Zara's transformation from pacifist to warrior. Since her world has been turned inside out and upside down she has tried and tried to resolve all the challenges she encounters peacefully but, in this book she is pushed beyond her limits of compassion. Filled with new adventures, new creatures and new characters this books ends far to early...I want more ASAP!!! I can't stand not knowing what lies ahead.
