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.
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
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
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.
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

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
It’s been a while since the last installment of this series and I’d forgotten just why I love Carrie Jones. This author has a sense of wit that may not make you laugh out loud all the time...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.
I remember thinking that the previous books were easy to read, and easy to get sucked into.
Even if they were just fluff.
I like fluff.
But I was midway through Endure before I felt anything remotely close to Sucked In. And even then, the plot seemed kinda meh.
However, I am on a mission this year to start finishing up all of these random series that I've started (then dropped) in the past few years.
One down! Wheeee!
Endure falls directly into the Not Bad/Not Great category. The ending tied everyt...more
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
As the Need series comes to an end with ENDURE, I’m a little let down by the emotional progression of this series. NEED really wowed me (you should read it if you haven’t), but I’ve been increasingly less wowed by each book in the series. The really kicker is how much the characters themselves talk about that very point in ENDURE. Several times they remark on the drastic transformation Zara has undergone, and not just physically. I agree, I just don’t m...more
The snow is falling in Beford Maine. It's been falling non stop for over a week. And people are missing. More and more disappearances by the day. It's no longer just the young boys. No one is safe anymore. Just another side affect to pixies taking over the town.
Zara and the gang...more
Some how along the way you become a part of the character's world and they become a part of you. They become friends. People you feel like you know and care about.
Silly, I know but that is always how I feel when I get immersed in a good series. It is sad seeing it end. Knowing that there will be no more adventures or romances or even heartache.
So it was with a little bit of a sad heart that I picked up this book. Knowing it would be the end. That once I...more
