It’s all-out war (and no-holds-barred romance) in the climactic conclusion to Carrie Jones’s bestselling series.

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

****FINAL RATING: 3.85 STARS****

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 be

On the e-reader this was only 167 pages. Wish it was A LOT longer, but oh well! Release date: 5-8-12

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

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 is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelin ...more
OMG!!!OMG!!! the cover is out!!!! It looks amazing!!!!!

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.
But seriously

Boo for the title. The others were so atmospheric, but this one just feels burdensome and heavy.

Let's hope we get the ending we're all cheering for!

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.

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.

I've had a love-hate relationship with Carrie Jones over the years. Need was the first of her books I read, and I thought it was okay her writing was choppy and hard to read, but the characters were there, not to mention the whole phobia thing. How cool is that?!

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

Just finished this last night and I must say, it wasn't that bad.

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

I enjoyed this conclusion to the NEED series. Zara and Astley have gotten Nick back from Valhalla, but all is not well since Zara is still a pixie and Nick=not okay with pixies. Poor Zara. Also, there is mounting pressure from the coming pixie war, which the gang has to somehow figure out how to defend their little snowy town in Maine from, while Zara decides which of her guys she wants to be with. All in all, had lots of action and was a satisfying conclusion to the series.

Please excuse typos.

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

So this is it...the ending that we have all been waiting for. The ending that will no doubt make many of us cry because we are not ready to say goodbye to this amazing series and all the characters we have grown to love.

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.

It is hard seeing a series come to an end.
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

Before reading the book:
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

Ok, I was so excited to read the finale to this series and was a little disappointed because it was only a little over 250 pages. This is the kind of book I want lots of pages to I can savor the story. Turn out, it didn't need it. My biggest complaint is that I read the other books a while ago and its hard to remember the plot/characters etc. because I've read so many other books in between. I read my reviews though so it helped a little.

Anyway, in this conclusion Zara is still a pixie and Nick

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!

Zara and her merry band of acolytes already accomplished a lot to rid their town of evil pixies, but when the End of the world is at stake, the expectations are higher. If the sheer pressure of the task wasn’t enough, you could add to Zara’s burden, the fact that she has to deal with the consequences of becoming a pixie. She might have sacrificed a lot to save Nick, but he doesn’t seem all that grateful and it adds to our hero’s stress. The End is near, can a group of teenagers avert the Apocaly ...more

Carrie Jones likes Skinny Cow fudgsicles and potatoes. She does not know how to spell fudgsicles. This has not prevented her from writing books. She lives with her cute family in Maine, but she grew up in Bedford, NH where she once had a séance with cool uber-comedian Sarah Silverman.

The Meyers brothers are from Bedford, too, so you’d think it would make Carrie funnier, coming from Bedford N.H. Ob
