Book Review + Giveaway: Entice (Need, #3) by Carrie Jones

Entice (Need, #3) by Carrie Jones
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: Available Now
Pages: 272
Source: Received from publicist for honest review

Summary: Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that's not quite how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and 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 how to get to Valhalla? And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, 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.

My Review: Time and time again, this series delivers a devourable and explosive plot. Entice, the third installment, was beyond thrilling, thus, making it my favorite. The original quality behind the detailed descriptions elevated my imagination to the max. Zara, has transformed immensely since I first met her. Her true nature has finally surfaced, balancing her kind heart and confident persona. The certainty behind her actions were admirable and straight forward. I didn't find myself growing impatient with her naive decisions, like I did in the past. I must say though, Astley's influence has been a positive one so far. Also, he is just so damn sexy. There is something about his caring behavior towards Zara that oozes through the pages. I wouldn't mind turning into a pixie if I knew Astley was going to be by my side. Yes, they remind me of evil looking Avatars with sharp teeth, but for him I would jump at the chance. Hm, I think I might be in love.

Moving on, the anticipation for Nick's rescue from an unfortunate capture in Captivate was undeniably taking over. Therefore, the mystery behind Valhalla was slowly developing and creating a vibe that appropriately fit the fast-paced style. Once Zara visits this secretive world, she is confronted with tasks and wondrous creatures, I just wished she stayed there a bit longer. Yet again, Carrie Jones leaves me with an ending that left me drooling for the next book. Will Zara give in to her pixie king or succumbed to her first love Nick? I have to wait and see! All I know is that I'm Team Astley all the way! I look forward to seeing what surprises are in store for us next. After three books, this pixie series continues to fascinate me with it's relatable characters and well-written story line.

See, this was my least favorite of the series so far. I felt like everything they accomplished in one book could've fit into five chapters, so I thought it was very drawn out. But I'm glad you enjoyed it!
