Issie on the other hand whined and felt sorry for herself a lot. The storyline once again seemed a little immature and dragged. The ending was Unfortunately this book was just as bad as the first. The ending was a little more interesting, but did end with a bit of a cliff-hanger.

Entered on screen reader. Mar 29, Tammie rated it really liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I couldn't put this one down. Finally Zara is becoming more interesting. She has lost her beloved Nick and she's gone all pixie. I like Nick but in my opinion there isn't much chemistry between Zara and Nick.

I can't wait to find out if she gets him back, or if she ends up with the other guy. And what secrets is the other guy hiding? Hopefully in the next book Ms. Jones will leave out gag inducing lines like "His face was a worried ball of cute" Please! Dec 14, Crystal Starr Light rated it liked it Shelves: Sure, Zara is half-pixie, Nick is a werewolf and Devyn is a were-eagle, and the entire gang keeps a watch for new pixies, but life goes on.

Until a new pixie king arrives warning of danger to come. After reading the third book and being hugely disappointed - enough to sell this book back! I Liked: The primary new character in the book, Astley, was very welcomed. Even though it is obvious he is supposed to be part of the budding Romantic Triangle see below for my thoughts on that , I felt he brought interesting dimension to the book. Which brings me to the amazing themes in this book. I don't normally talk about themes in a review, but there are so many good, important lessons in here unlike in many other teenaged vampire romance novels that I just have to spend some time talking about them.

Firstly, Zara may be dating Nick, she may love him dearly, but never once does she let him govern her life. In fact, she even declares page This is a great message to young women, a counter to our culture and other media that tell women that A they need a man something else this book also counters, see page and and B once they have a man, the man makes all the decisions.

This is one big reason I adore Zara as a character. She is independent, she makes her own thoughts, she takes life in her own hands and actually does something to change her destiny and save her friends. The second big theme is bigotry. Let's face it, before Astley arrives, the Big Four believe all pixies are inherently bad and can't be redeemed. Hence why capturing them in an iron clad house is okay—because they can't change from their evil selves.

The best way I can detail this change in thought is to quote the book once again page It isn't there and then suddenly gone. It's like a bad germ waiting to pounce and infect you even when you think an antibiotic has eradicated it from your system.

This is the first time I've read of Valhalla and Valkyries in a young adult novel, as well as were-tigers, eages, and bears. I honestly can't wait to see what else she includes and definitely want to do more research into Norse mythology. I also liked how Jones added more action to this book. The second half especially gets pretty intense—even Issie, our dear sweet girl, takes up a crossbow to fend off pixies attacking Betty's house talk about intense!

I Didn't Like: One of the things that made Need such a wonderful book was its decidedly ominous, creepy tone. Well, that sense of foreboding is pretty much gone in Captivate. There is no building tension, building horror, no wanting to peer behind your shoulder in paranoia. It's just straight-laced young adult urban fantasy.

Why does every novel have to have two guys competing for our heroine's affections? I wasn't that fond of Nick and again, I like Astley , but I am so tired of treading this road. And the writing! It wasn't that long ago that I read Need, in which Carrie Jones handled the first person present really well it isn't that easy to use.

Here, it is literally like I am reading a sixth grade short story assignment. I try not to dole that complaint out a lot it tends to lose its meaning , but seriously, the writing here is positively atrocious and embarrassing. Sentences are constructed at about the third grade reading level. The cat was yellow and fat. And in case you think I'm lying, here are some excerpts that I happened to note: Page Of course you're who I should worry about.

Let me guess: I will shower and think. I will shower and think and not shake. I will shower and think and not shake and I will imagine what it'll be like to see Nick again. I get the point! No need to repeat the same thing in triplicate to make sure the audience knows. In the first half, the story is incredibly boring. I can see where Jones is including hints to what is to come Valkyries, Valhalla, Astley, etc.

Betty and Mrs. Nix are absent for a lot of the book, which was a shame. Both of them were really interesting. I also kept wondering what happened to Zara's pixie father. Zara and Nick exchange kisses Zara explicitly says they haven't had sex. Devyn, Issie, and Cassidy are part of their own Romantic Triangle. There is the needs the pixies have, which could be construed possibly as sexual needs not sure though.

This book is way more violent than the last one. Zara kills at least three pixies, and it is fairly detailed. Nick is abducted; Zara is injured on two occasions. Compared to Need, this is a disappointment.

The creepy edge is gone and the writing itself has plummeted. Even the plot starts off weakly.

Fortunately, the second half and the inclusion of very empowering themes of acceptance and independence make up for the beginning and the clunky writing. Jun 16, Sara MH rated it it was ok Shelves: Does the title speak true? The answer is no.

I was not captivated. Ok, so I'm not hard-core feminist, but I am on a minor level, and Nick got under my skin so much. He called Zara 'Baby' and 'babe' so many times that I was tempted to clock him over the head. He is always telling her what to do and all, "No,no I can do it, but you can't becaue you are a puny woman. Leave the pixie slaying to us big men. I mean, honsetly, I liked Nick in the first Does the title speak true? I mean, honsetly, I liked Nick in the first book, but when a mysterious, handsome pixie king enters the picture, i was like, "YES!

Oh, and Zara's undying loyalty to Nick, even when something bad happens don't wanna spoil it is rather sickening. I will give the book so credit in that there were several twists, and unexpectedness, but it was really hard to focus on that with all of Zara's crap.

Jun 26, Abbie rated it liked it. Actual rating - 2. Zara annoyed me in the last book, and she annoyed me just as much in this one. She continued to chant phobias like she did in book one, but thankfully, she didn't do it as much in this one.

The book just bored me, and i couldn't get interested in it at all. When the "interesting" things happened, i didn't really care. The only thing that i liked was the ending - Not what happened at the end, just the fact Actual rating - 2.

The only thing that i liked was the ending - Not what happened at the end, just the fact that i had finished.

Overall, Slow, dull, and had an annoying main character. Mar 24, Amber rated it really liked it Shelves: First read: Jan 10, Dark Faerie Tales rated it really liked it. This is a fierce tale that will evoke every emotion and leave you wanting more. Opening Sentence: Sometimes there are these bizarre people who actually like physical education class.

The Review: Our favorite lovable phobic is back. Once again, Zara takes the reader on an amazing journey filled with heartbreak and death.

We get a glimpse at some of Zara's new phobias, but we also get a "Top Ten Things to Remember When Dealing with Pixies" list, as well as some pixie tips and hints. Captivate picks up shortly after the ending of Need.

Zara and The Scooby Gang know that their previous pixie solution is only a temporary fix. Zara struggles with her decisions and starts to question how pixies should be treated. The deadly pixies are becoming increasingly harder to detain, and more are flocking to Bedford, Maine at an alarming rate.

Matters further intensify when a new pixie king arrives looking to claim Zara as his queen, as well as takeover the territory.

The new king is unlike any other pixie that Zara has met. This completely throws her emotions into a tailspin. She foolishly puts her trust in him knowing that it could prove to be disastrous. Zara is willing to give up everything and become the one thing that she fears the most. With an impending pixie war looming, Zara starts to realize the effects that her decisions have caused. A bloody power struggle is underway and there is nothing that Zara can do to stop it.

Zara's motivations and conflicts really drive this absorbing tale. Jones also introduces a few new characters. I absolutely loved Astley.

I'm not sure that I entirely trust him, but he does have some redeeming qualities. While he did help Zara in many ways, doing so also served his purposes.

I definitely want to get to know him better. I was a bit surprised by the ending. The book ends on a cliffhanger, leaving room to have major plot points continued in the next installment. I can't wait to read about the events that unfold between Astley, Zara, and Nick. It's so clear to see that the dynamics of Zara's relationship with Nick have been changed forever.

Jones creates intriguing and compelling characters, and makes you care about them. Overall, Captivate is definitely worth reading. I really enjoyed visiting this world again. It will keep you engaged and guessing at every turn. Jones continues to do an excellent job of world-building. Captivate continued to build on the established lore from the first book in the series, Need, as well as introducing a new mythology.

With the vulnerable king's needs spinning out of control and ravenous and rampaging pixies on the loose, Bedford, Maine is deadlier than ever. Notable Scene: He pulls me into his chest, but I've already seen. I've already seen and it's stuck inside my brain like panic and terror, like a bad horror movie image that won't let go: I yank away from Nick and stare.

Then I start moving. I hold my breath as I go from one corpse to another. FTC Advisory: Bloomsbury provided me with an ARC of Captivate.

Review courtesy of AllThingsUrbanFantasy. She was understandably melancholy read my review HERE , but completely lacking in self pity.

She was a realistic teenager without any of the CW-esque superficiality. In Captivate, after surviving a series of earth shattering experiences, and nearly loosing her life, I expected Zara to be even more Review courtesy of AllThingsUrbanFantasy. In Captivate, after surviving a series of earth shattering experiences, and nearly loosing her life, I expected Zara to be even more grounded and serious about the new direction her life had taken.

Unfortunately the older and wiser Zara is notably absent this time out. He makes no secret of his desires to have her as his pixie queen, but he does not force her either. Captivate introduces some new mythology into the Need universe, specifically Norse mythology. That information seems to be reserved for the as yet untitled Need book 3.

The basic plot is a fun continuation of the original premise of Zara trying to come to terms with both her human and pixie heritage and the nature of good and evil within all of us, but because of the lack of depth with the main characters, this sequel seems somewhat shallow. Zara and her friends are now inordinately consumed with junior high-ish angst over their respective crushes. I did enjoy the love triangle that was created with the introduction of Astley I predict a Team Nick vs Team Astley war will be ensuing, and for the record: Despite some significant flaws, Captivate is still a good read though no where near as captivating as Need.

Tips on Having a Gay (Ex) Boyfriend (Belle, #1)

Geez, what a mess. Where do I start? First-Setting up the story: When did Zara become valley girl in her speaking? And when did the words "Baby" and "Oh insert name here " become manly for a werewolf?! And then you have Devyn appearing to be cheating on Issie? And all in the first two chapters?

This is wrong on so many levels and completely turned me off before I even knew what was going on in the book. Second-Writing Style: I don't remember Need being written like Captivate. If you like short c Geez, what a mess. If you like short choppy sentences with bad grammar, then this is the book for you.

Sentences such as "We actually haven't had actual sex yet" yes, this is word for word Or "He did something. He called Oh, and dialogue lacked contractions so it sounded fake - another pet peeve of mine.


Need was criticized for being too much like Twilight - Zara moves from hot southern town to the far cold north to small town to live with Grandmother that she barely knows. Zara finds out weres and pixies exist. Zara gets caught in battle and yada, yada, yada insert spoons and forks here okay, I just through that in for giggles but yes, it's still totally absurd that forks was the weapon of choice to defeat the bad guys. In Captivate - Zara faces a big decision and the way it was written reminded me a of a little book called Breaking Dawn and well, being the 4th book of Twilight, just a little something to make you think That is what a male MC should be like.

Keep him around. There is a chapter near the end that isn't written choppy!! I went back and checked and it actually flowed. The cover is beautiful just like Need's cover. And um It livened the book up to the point that it earned a star back. Will I read a book 3 if it's coming out? Probably not.

Captivate just wasn't for me - I need a bit more sustenance to a story as well as a deeper level of writing to keep my interest on a book-likable level. Jul 31, Amelie rated it liked it. Ganz einfach: Es war okay, ich fand's jetzt nicht schlecht, aber positiv ist mir auch nichts aufgefallen. Er will alles bestimmen, Zara darf nichts alleine machen, er selbst aber macht, was er will.

Da war mir Astley sogar sympathischer, obwohl der immerhin ein Elf war. Generell hat mir das Ende von der ganzen Geschichte am besten gefallen, da es sehr spannend geschrieben war und sich vor allem anderen vom ersten Teil abhob.

Besonders darauf bin ich bei Band drei sehr gespannt. Insgesamt war dieser zweite Teil deutlich gewaltsamer und auch blutiger als noch Band eins, aber auch hier war dem erst gegen Mitte bis Ende der Fall. Apr 13, Jeninne rated it it was ok Shelves: There is a standard to which I judge fantasy YA books.

I ask myself, is this worse than Twilight? If the answer is no, I keep reading. The answer this time was nearly yes.

The fact is, there were so many problems with this book I rarely felt like a book. It felt like a rough draft of a novice writer looking to get published. There was no fluidity to the writing. There was certainly nothing engaging. And the characters. God, the characters. I'll admit, Zara had charm in the first book.

She was litt There is a standard to which I judge fantasy YA books. She was little headstrong, and short tempered, but she's a teen, so I'm willing to let a lot slide. But this time around she's just plain annoying. She doesn't listen to reason.

She gets mad and storms off. And worst of all, she goes from a fairly independent girl, to hanging off the end of her boyfriend's arm. Apparently now she can't do anything without his approval, or at least asking forgiveness after, and without his attention she's likely to wilt. He's now the focus of her world, which turns her into nothing but a prop, and destroys the entire book.

And Nick? He seriously comes close to Edward Cullen status in this book with how controlling he is. He was relatively likable in the first book. But now he's telling her what to do, and trying to control her thoughts and shaming her for thinking independently and overall being a total asshole. I nearly got out the pompoms when we were introduced to the new love interest, Astley. Astley had more personally in twenty pages than Nick had in two books. The plot felt like nothing but a setup for the next books, or maybe like the author didn't know where it was going.

It's a mess. The first book had serious problems too, but it actually had charm, which is why I sort of, kind of, a little bit enjoyed it, and picked up the sequel.

This book has no charm, no appeal, and I warrant the only people who'll like this book are sixteen or haven't ever had a boyfriend and idealize the concept. I feel like that should be a warning on the book. Sep 13, Emilee rated it it was amazing Shelves: My Thoughts: If you know me, you know I love fantasy.

Absolutely anything fantastical, especially urban fantasy. But, let's be honest, who isn't tired of vampires and werewolves? While there are some truly great vampire and werewolf books out there, I was so ready for something new. If you don't know, Need is the story of Zara discovering that she is half-pixie and tha My Thoughts: If you don't know, Need is the story of Zara discovering that she is half-pixie and that her boyfriend is a werewolf yes, I said werewolf.

I like this werewolf, so be quiet! Captivate picks up right where Need left off. Like, exactly where Need left off. As in, it seems to pick up the very next day. I'm not sure if this is the case but it speaks loads that Carrie is able to make it feel like you just finished Need and immediately started Captivate. Captivate easily could have been just the continuation of the pixie war along with some couple troubles for Zara and Nick, but it was so much more than that!

The new characters and lore Carrie introduces are weaved seamlessly into the already seamless piece of work that is Zara's story. I love that Zara is a character that fits perfectly into both the fantasy world and the 'real' world represented in the novel. So often I see a character that is perfectly at home among the fantastical but has trouble in school and dealing with the human aspect of their lives. Again, not the case with this book. I think the only problem that I had with Captivate is the fact that it made me show emotion.

I bawled my head off while reading. The pages of my book have water damage I cried so hard. I'm not used to a book making me cry. I don't cry. I commend Carrie on making me cry; it is quite a feat. The ending is truly sad, yet at the same time full of hope. The Verdict: This book is truly fantastic. Just, be prepared with a few boxes of tissues.

Mar 21, Jen rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm really, really disappointed. What happened?! The magic that was Need was absent in Captivate. I definitely had my fill with all the problems that arose that were cured by a kiss on the cheek or a hug. And what the heck was up with Devyn? When did he become a premenstrual crybaby?

I also didn't like how there would be this huge, life-changing discovery that would be overtaken by giggling and relationship talk in the midst of serious discussion. It almost felt as if these characters were totall I'm really, really disappointed. It almost felt as if these characters were totally different from the characters I loved in the first book.

I mean I hate to say it, but I felt like I was watching an episode of Barney and Friends with some very Full House moments where everything is solved by a big hug from an Olsen twin.

It's okay to grieve when something bad happens. It wasn't very realistic to go through a traumatic event and then wipe your tears away and go to the prom and act as if nothing happened. Characters dealing with their pain is accpetable.

Interesting, even. As with Need, Zara had her moments of hilarious snark that shone through, which is the reason that I gave it two stars and not one. It was pretty difficult to get through this book. I hope that the use of the word "baby" is significantly toned down in the next book.

It sounds reasonable in everyday speaking, but typed? Not so much. I hope that the series bounces back in the conclusion of the trilogy, because I had high hopes for Captivate after the awesomeness that was Need. Jan 21, Rebeca rated it it was ok Shelves: The second book of the Need series continues with where it last left off. I was really excited to read more of Zara, whom I thought was an independent, loving person, but I ended up uber dissapointed.

Captivate is a pretty ironic name, since I experienced nothing close to captivation. Authors shouldn't put thoughts into their readers' heads from their titles. This second installment deals with the unmentionable importance of Nick and Zara's sappy and pukey love for each other. It was cute at f The second book of the Need series continues with where it last left off.

It was cute at first, but the repetition of it bugged me! This book made me doubt how much I liked Need in the first place. You've ruined me, Jones. I won't be visiting your next book, Entice , either. Another negative: Jones' writing style had NO flow and the plot had NO shape to it.

All I noticed was the consistency to the development of the two lovebirds' relationship. I figured something was to happen soon to hinder their 'togetherness', and if that was the case.. I would say "forget it", since it would be totally predictable. But I just couldn't wait to see if my prediction played out.. Zara and Nick's gross infatuation for each other made me want to close the book and burn it immediately but I didn't burn it only because it was a library book.

Feb 04, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: I literally just finished reading this book minutes ago and I'm actually very annoyed. As the end of the book margin got smaller and smaller I knew I was going to finish the book and still want more. I HATE when authors leave endings like that. So here's my basic review. The writing was hard to get used to at first because it is written in 1st person and seems juvenile some incomplete sentences, poor grammar I literally just finished reading this book minutes ago and I'm actually very annoyed.

The writing was hard to get used to at first because it is written in 1st person and seems juvenile some incomplete sentences, poor grammar and word usage. However, since this is the mind of a teenage girl it probably should be and I don't mean that in a derogatory way since I myself am one.

Astley is my new book crush. I like him so much more than Nick. Devyn annoys me and Nick is a little too vanilla for my taste. They're both wonderful writers so that's certainly a compliment. I can't wait to see where Carrie Jones goes with book 3 there better be a book 3 after that ending!!! Jan 15, Kirsty Amethyst Bookwyrm rated it really liked it Shelves: This and my other reviews can be found at http: Also Zara, after rescuing a pixie called Astley, has an internal debate about whether all pixies are evil.

I love the additio This and my other reviews can be found at http: I love the addition of Norse mythology as I did not know much about it and I found it fascinating. This is a captivating book with many twists and turns and I could not guess at the ending. I would recommend it to people who have read Need and those who like YA paranormal romances. Aug 23, Holly rated it really liked it Shelves: I was quite surprised that there was even a sequel to this book, but I was excited to read it.

I admit I forgot what happened in the last one, but it was okay. Zara and Nick are back fighting pixies. The problem? Kings are coming to the area now that Zara's father is out of commission.

One in particular seems to be stalking Zara. And to top it off, Nick gets kidnapped and Zara will do anything to get him back.
