It’s all-out war (and no-holds-barred romance) in the climactic conclusion to Carrie Jones’s bestselling series.

Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king . . .

Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.

Review –

In this the last installment of the Need Series Nick is rescued by Zara and yes, he hates that now she’s a pixie queen, Zara has to pull together an army and if that means involving humans, then so be it, and she has to come to terms with who she really loves. I was very happy with the way the series ended and highly recommend it if you like young adult, paranormal,love triangle books.

Entice (Need #3) by Carrie Jones

Product Description:

Published : December 14, 2010

Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together for ever. But that’s not quite how things have worked out. For starters, Nick has gone. He has been taken to the mythical place for warriors known as Valhalla. Zara and her friends might be able to get him back, it’s just not going to be easy. Meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But even if Zara and her friends do discover the route to Valhalla, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn’t turned into just any pixie… She’s Astley’s queen

 

Review –

Nick, Zara’s werewolf boyfriend is in Vahalla, and Zara and her friends have to find a way to get him out and in order to do that she has allowed herself to be pixie kissed by Astley and has become his queen.  How to you think Nick is going to take the news. Yup, not good, not good at all. Love this series.

Captivate (Need #2) by Carrie Jones

Product Description:

Published: December 14, 2010

Zara and her friends thought they’d solved the pixie problem. And they did – sort of. The pixie’s are all locked away, deep in the woods. But the king’s needs grow stronger each day that he is in captivity, while his control over his people weakens. And it’s enough to draw a new king into town. Astley claims he is different. He claims there are pixies who can live peacefully with humans, that it doesn’t have to be all violence and nastiness all the time. Zara wants to believe him…until Astley also claims that she is fated to be his queen.

There is no way Zara would ever turn pixie. And she’s got good friends who will make sure of that. Besides, she and Nick are so in love they’re practically inseparable. But when they very thing Zara wants to protect most is exactly what’s at risk, she is forced to make choices she never imagined.

Review-

The Pixie King is Zara’s father and is captured along with some of his followers while Zara and her friends decide what to do.  Astley,(a good pixie-if there is such a thing) tells Zara that she is meant to be his queen.  Just another day in the life of an average teenager. Yeah. Loved it regardless and look forward to the next installment.

Need (Need #1) by Carrie Jones

Product Description:

Published: December 8, 2009

Zara collects phobias the way other girls collect Facebook friends. 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 doesn’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.

With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has readers rapidly turning the pages.

Review-

If you didn’t know anything about phobias you will by the time you finish reading the first installment of the Need Series by Carrie Jones. Zara, the main character, goes around counting  and collecting phobias when she nervous or goes through a rough patch in her life.  She has to move from Charleston,SC to Maine to live with her grandmother, start a new school and make friends. Not as easy as it sounds if the town you now live in is the hotbed for pixies and a war is brewing. There is romance,mystery,werewolves and other were animals and a surprise around every corner. It is a fast read and I gave it five stars *****.

 

Here are a few phobias: (just to name a few)
