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.
I was captivated! Captivate was just as good as Need. I completely finished this book in one sitting. It was so good! This is such a fun and enthralling series!
Jones took the plot to a completely different level. Something that I did not see coming at all. Especially, when we are introduced to Valhalla. I can't wait to see where this goes next.
I still love Zara. She is just like so awesome. And her boyfriend, Nick, to die for. He's like OMG so hot! They're such a perfect couple. Zara's friends, Devyn and Issie and great too and their romance is just really nice to read about.
I even like Astley, the pixie. No, I really think I love him, he's just so nice and I can't seem to not like him. Seriously, to the extent that I wouldn't even mind if Zara and Astley got together. No, I did not just say that! :P
Jones is a fantastic storyteller. The writing, the description and of course the story was fab. But, there were times where it was a bit slow paced far me, but I still liked reading it. I really hope Entice is just as great or even better!
