Endure (Need #4)
Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role i...more
I loved Need. I thought it was fresh and original, not to mention fun and exciting. Then Captivate and Entice came along and were not only awful, but so awful that they actually ruined Need for me. And now Endure has come back to reclaim part of my heart. I loved it so much and it definitely now has a place in my heart.
Zara really comes into her own in this book. She takes charge in a way that she never has in the past and it's so beautifu...more

Okay. I'm going to start this review by mentioning my feelings towards the rest of this series. I adored the first book. I thought that the story was unique, the action was really well done, and I loved the romance. The characters were all characters that I fell in love with instantly. The second and third book seemed to get progressively worse in my opinion, but I still enjoyed them enough to be...more
Why do authors LUV torturing us READERS!?!
.......(dramatic moment over ROFL)
TEAM ASTLEY!!!! xD
That sums up the shock and astonishment that I was in when I finally finished this book. I can say that it wasn't worth staying up half the night for (since I had to wake up at 6 am for school). If I could rewind last night and not finish the book, I'd be happier.
On to the book. It really wasn't what I was expecting. I don't kno...more
I had just finished the Entice... I know. It took FOREVER for me to finally get the third book. But now I am craving for more. I am Enticed, Captivated and Need to get my hands on to the fourth book! I just can Endure it!
I really hope Endure ends with Zara and Astley getting together. Ever since we were introduced to Astley in the second book, I knew he was the one. But if Carrie thinks otherwise I am probably going to scream.
When you read the blurb you really get a sense that it's going to be some thing thrilling and jam packed with romance all the way through but I actually found it really 'pick up' towards the last few chapters.
The ending-to me- didn't really seem to conclude the series. There was a lot of loose ends with Nick that Zara really hadn't gone into making it feel like it was hanging.
What really dissapointed me in this was not Zara's choi...more
Captivate, Need's sequel, took me even further into the world of Zara White and her friends, human and pixie alike, and I became infatuated with Jones's series. Entice made me love it. Imagine my heartbreak and disappointment when I foun...more
It's over! I can't believe it. I waited so long for it and I've finished.
It ended........exactly the way I wanted it to. Thank the lord. This book was.....so good. I can't even describe my feelings.
I love Astley.
The Need series has been a guilty pleasure of mine since book one due to the highly entertaining dialogue, the very unique characters and story line Carrie Jones created. After all, pixies aren't a paranormal creature I see a lot in the YA genre. Couple that with the use of Norse god mythology and you have a truly original series. All that being said, I do not think this was a strong conclusion, but I did still enjoy myself along the way.
Sometimes what I really dislike about reading a series whi...more
Yep, as expected it was AWSOME!
To bad it is the last one - I really would like to read some more about Zara and Astley.
Anyway, in this conclusion Zara is still a pixie and Nick...more
The cover is out and its AMAZING! Can't wait to get this book and find out if Nick and Zara are ok or if Zara goes for Astley. I'm hoping she ends up with Astley!
This book was good but I felt like something was missing. I also found myself getting extremely annoyed with the characters in the beginning of the story mostly because I didn't remember them and how they acted. But once I got into the story it wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. But don't get me wrong i...more

i am so glad i read this series!! it wasn't a recommendation, or a review i had seen, or even a mention in some blog. no, i picked up need, the first in the series based purely on peaked interest. what a great series! this book exceeded all my expectations and left me wanting more. the ending was realistic, as in not tied with a big bow and sprinkled with sugar.
i love how the characters grew, especially zara. she...more

The Sisters Say: Enchanting, Endearing, and Entertaining
I read the entire Need series in the last week, and I have to say, each book gets better and better, culminating in an action-packed race to Ragnarok (aka Armageddon, aka Apocalypse, aka AH! End of the world and no more paranormal romance books)!! If you have not read this series and want something with a different species of paran...more
that was my reaction when I finished this book
but then it slowly settled into my mind that this was the last book of the series
and then I got all sad (i actually almost cried)
whenever i finish a book series i die a little inside :'(
the ending wasn't bad though
it was actually a happy ending!
no more evil dudes, the world is saved,(view spoiler)[and Astley & Zara are together (hide spoiler)]
so it wasn't the ending that made me sad
it was that i will never get to read abou...more
The cover of Endure is probably my favourite cover out of all the books in the series. I just love the gold swirls and the girl's golden eyes. So gorgeous!
A final battle between the good and evil...
Endure is a thrilling and breath-taking finale to the Need series. When I finished Enticed, I had no idea that a fourth book was coming. I think Endure was even better than the first book in the series. The story is final...more
Endure started right after Entice where Zara and friends are trying to stop Frank and his pixies from destroying Bedford and the rest of the world.
The book is REALLY action packed and nonstop full of suspense and emotion, and wraps up the series brilliantly. It is amazing to see the characters change and grow throughout the books, especially Zara who in the first book said she would not be violent even to those who...more

Endure by Carrie Jones
I’ve read the whole series. From Need, Captivate, Entice, all the way to Endure, I’ve fell in love with the characters. But as soon as you find out the story of Zara and her friends continues longer, it becomes painfully obvious that something happens to one of the main characters. But now that the series is over, you kind of want Zara to fall deeper into her crap life.
I really didn’t like Nick. I thought their relationship was going to end befo...more
What I really liked in this story was the evolution of pixie-Zara. I am not a pacifist by any means, so I never really connected with her. In ENDURE, she understands that sometimes you have to d...more
With Endure, I felt Astley was being shortchanged. Jones spent many pages in the first two books cultivating Zara's relationship with Nick, and you could totally feel the passion from the way they behave towards each other; when Astley is with Zara, there's not as much passion, which sucks bi...more
