Need Series By Carrie Jones

Title: Need
Author: Carrie Jones
Series:  Need # 1
Hardcover: 306
Genre: PNR, Young Adult
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Publication Date: December 23rd 2008
Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you'd have to fear.
Need is a young-adult urban fantasy. This narrative centers on a teenage girl named Zara, a strong-minded girl who enjoys helping others. After the death of her stepfather, Zara was sent to live with her grandmother in Maine as part of her recovery. Like life isn’t a struggle enough, Zara, has to deal with nasty pixies. As the books progress, Zara discovers series of personal challenges and also discovers a huge family secret that will change her life...

Nick is a boy who Zara meets in Maine, she fancies him and soon Zara and Nick became an item. But Nick has a secret of his own he is a supernatural!  Nick is a loner, and he likes helping others, but in a different way than Zara would expect. He is also dashing and down right chivalrous and that, did win Zara over… amidst the conflict with Zara’s revelations, Nick became her rock and together they made am impossible situation possible!

Carrie Jones is an author that I read a long time ago; I am just getting around to reviewing this book. I especially like the cover art and the twist, turn and suspense of the book. Jones has an interesting writing flair and her characters are relatable.  The conversations are a bit clichéd and somewhat PG, but I found myself appreciating the corniness. I’m curious about book two.

He smiles. It's a wicked smile. Kind but not kind. Handsome but dangerous. Feral almost. I can see why Nick nearly killed him, Nick...I ask again, "Why were you in the road?""I was waiting for you."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....
This story renews after Zara and her friends find a way to capture and deal with her father, the Pixies King! Even though the horrendous tax weighed Zara down, imprisoning her father and her race in the most cruel way, Zara is happy that at least
Nick and her have time to breathe and most importantly time to focus on their relationship. But then comes Astley!  Hot sexy Astley!
Astley is now the pixie king, Zara’s father’ successor, and he carries a torch for Zara's, with vague intentions.  As the story progress, It’s ultimately divulged that Astley wishes to make Zara his queen.

In this book watch Zara fraught with her humanity and her pixie heritage. Zara is drawn to Astley, Her king but she believes she’s in love with Nick… worst, its no secret that Nick loathes pixies. This book focuses mainly on Zara and Nick and Astley’s relationships.

I was super excited to get started on this next installment of the Need series. This book did not disappoint me! I love it… yet it was heart wrenching and my heart goes out the Zara, she was force to make an impossible decision and even though it might end badly and she might loose her friends, Love was the deciding factor in the end.  Carrie Jones did a good job with this book. I liked it.
