Title:  ENTICE (Need Series Book 3)
Publisher:  Bloomsbury Publishing
Pages:  Paperback 264

RATING:   3.5 out of 5 "Please Pick Astley!" Stars!

Description from Goodreads:
Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever.
But that's not quite how things have worked out.

For starters, well, Nick is dead.
Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't just turned...she's Astley's queen.


I have to say that Entice is definitely my favourite in the Need Series.  Carrie has written us a fantastic interaction between Zara and Astley......I knew at the end of Captivate that Astley would be my hotty of choice!!!  And I wasn't wrong.....I am officially Team Astley !  Oh Zara....please see the light and choose him....who needs a brooding Nick- he isn't even a King!  

The connection Zara and Astley has surpassed anything she has had with Nick - it may just be King to Queen - but I would like to think it is Astley to Zara as well !  The relationship of Nick/Zara pales in comparison and I found myself wondering why on earth she was still obsessed with saving Nick.

Entice gives us a more powerful, focused and stronger Zara than we have seen in Need and Captivate.  She has truly grown as a character - though at times a good shake up wouldn't hurt !

Astley almost certainly is wielding some magical connection with Zara - and I have a feeling that he may just reveal a sinister side in Book 4 - though I hope if he does....Zara still picks him!!!  I just love the bad boys!

Carrie Jones has grown as an author throughout this series and reading Entice is testament to this.  She has delivered a very enjoyable read and I look forward to Need #4. 


p.s.......mmmmmmm Astley !
