*If you have not yet read NEED, you may want to skip the Summary, I will try to keep my review as unspoilery as possible...

Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.

Wow! This book is a whirlwind. It takes you deeper into Zara's paranormal world and into the issues of dealing with her father and the other Pixies in her home town.

CAPTIVATE will do just that, captivate the reader with it's exciting new characters, shocking unexpected twists, and may make you start to re-think what you thought you knew about Pixies and their world!

True to form, it is a middle series book and leaves you completely longing for more, but at the same time it also leaves you totally satisfied with plot shockers that you weren't so sure about when they happened. (Vague enough for you?)

This is certainly a book you want to read! A fascinating sequel to one of the best paranormal books of 2009. Oh and the cover is equally as gorgeous as Need's!

Come back tomorrow for my fun short interview with Carrie!

I was sent this ARC by the publisher.

I LOVE the cover!!! Can't wait to get my hands on it! Although, it sounds like Zara could possibly be just a little annoying again.
