A perfect second part!!!!!

This is the second time when i really understand that the authors can actually made a perfect "book 2" within how many books they are planning to write. I love "Need", i really enjoyed it, the new crazy topic, the strong character that Zara White is, everything. And Carrie definitely did not disappointed me, or anyone with "Captivate". You have to realize that it is between the first conflict and the final one, but the new characters, the new situation, the traumatic changes that Zara is going through, accepting was is intended to be, being strong by herself, everything has a reason to be, and what a perfect way of putting all the pieces just there, in our minds, pieces that are going to be accommodated in the following book, or books.
I loved it from the begginig to the end, i really think that Carrie Jones is creating a amazing strong female character, and a lovely group of people that touch your heart. I´m gonna be desperate until the next book comes out. But i wait, cuz it worth it!!
And if you don´t agree after you finish the book, you can always complian to me!

Zara's and Nick's relationship was a little too over-the-top for me. All their conversations were cliche and I could not stop rolling my eyes. I think those in their early teens would really like this series. I had to force myself to keep reading and contemplated not finishing it several times. It irritated me to no end that they researched pixies on the internet. Just one example of the lack of creativity in this series. Not until the last 100 pages or so did it capture my attention which is why I rated this 3 stars instead of just 2. Overall this is probably one my least favorite book about faeries. I cannot in good conscience recommend this series.

    Don't waste your money!!

    Luckily I had got this from the public library and didn't buy this I'm so glad now! I LOVED the first book but because of how it ended w.out a cliffhanger I got closure from that book like the ending of a series book would. So add that to the fact that the author writing the characters more immature than they were in the last book just made me really not want to read it. I was dragging through this book and finally finished and decided to get the third book "Entice" and was even more disappointed! The longer the series continues it seems like the characters get more immature and aren't learning from their mistakes as usual characters do. I do NOT recommend this book. Though i do recommend the first book

However as i started to read it i lost interest fast and could not get into it. whenever i read a book in a series i always finish it so i know what happened. i could not with book. i got half way done and could not finish.

    i do not recommend this book at all.
