Zara would do anything to save her boyfriend Nick and the people of Bedford, including becoming a Pixie herself. Entice by Carrie Jones continues the adventures of Zara as she works to get Nick back from Valhalla, the mythical place where warriors go to battle for good. At the end of Need Zara underwent the transformation from human to pixie by kissing Astley and agreeing to be his Pixie queen. Well, things haven’t gone quite like Zara planned, for one thing it has been a lot harder to figure out where Nick is than she expected and all her friends are having a hard time accepting the new Pixie Zara.
To complicate an already complicated situation, Zara finds herself growing closer to Astley and feral pixies have moved into the Bedford area and are starting to take the youth again. Asltey is dealing with his own set of problems with treachery inside his court and his desire to make Zara happy at the cost of any chance he might have with her. Zara must face the decision of what is she willing to sacrifice in order to get Nick back and supposing she achieves the almost impossible task of getting him back, will Nick accept her as a pixie?
Entice does not disappoint, if you are a fan of the first two books you will love the third installment Need series. Zara’s inner turmoil over her own humanity (or lack thereof) is compelling and touching. Entice is slightly darker then the first two books as Zara struggles to deal with the repercussions of the choices she has made. You get to know Astley more and come to like him, I am still team Nick but like Astley more and feel for him. I struggled with this book more than I have the other two because at one point in the story I really started to question Zara’s pursuit of rescuing Nick, was it really worth the sacrifices that were made to get him back? Other than that I couldn’t put it down and enjoyed it until the very end. Carrie Jones left Entice wide open and has given some hints as to what is to come in the future installments of the Need series.
