Captivate (Need, #2) Captivate by Carrie Jones

Series: Need #2

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book picks up right where Need left off. Zara and her friends think they have some control over the pixies. But it is short-lived. The pixies loss of power brings a power struggle of the fae world right to their small Maine town.

I like Zara's internal conflicts as she tries to reconcile her humanity with what seems to be her destiny. The love triangle kept the romance angle entertaining in this one. The cover is much better than Need's cover. We had a few new characters introduced in this book. Some I liked (Astley) and some I could have lived without (Cassidy). The book moved slow in the first half, but then the action picked up and the book seemed to end mid-chapter.

This series is a guaranteed winner for those who like paranormal YA romance. Overall I liked this one a little more than the first one. I'll read the next one if it is this series if just going to be a trilogy. But if it is going to drag on for books on end, this will probably be the end for me.

I probably won't read this one since I haven't embraced the whole paranormal thing.
