Need #2

Captivate by Carrie Jones

Feeling Blue!

There is a house deep in the woods hidden by glamour, fenced by iron and full of pixies. Everyday as more and more pixies show up in Bedford, Zara, Nick and her friends round up these pixies and trap them in this house. Everyday as more pixies are rounded up the house becomes more volatile, its occupants more deranged and it is only a matter of time till something gives.

Anyone can see how much in love Zara and Nick are, they are devoted to each other and nothing and no one will ever get in the way of that. Then Zara meets Astley, a pixie king. Astley is not like other pixies, at least Zara is hoping very much that he isn't because Zara is about to make a choice to step into her destiny and her only hope of survival, and of saving the one she loves, is put her trust in Astley. But you should never trust a pixie.

Captivate is a pair of green eyes that are really silver, it is a kiss that is filled with need and desire and pain. Zara has long been a normal human girl, a pacifist and strongly against all pixies, now however all that is changing. All hell is about to break lose and Zara has some life changing decisions to make, however an act of love may yet turn against her. A teen story of pixies, weres and romance that is filled with blood, danger and mythology.

  1. Captivate picks up a few months after where we're left off with Need. Captivate didn't transition well from its predecessor - we're pretty much thrust back into the story without character descriptions or at least a little synopsis of what happened before. I couldn't even remember how Zara's, Devyn's, or Issie's appearances looked like.
