Today here on Letters Inside ut I have my stop for the ENDURE by Carrie Jones tour. If you haven’t read the Need series yet – check out the interview, it’s spoiler-free! If you haven’t read the previous books, I recommend you skip the review and synopsis. There ARE spoilers from the rest of the series in these.
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 feelings for her pixie king…
Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.
When I first got my Nook Color, I was seeking “different” books from what I usually found at the book store. Finding books in Kentucky is sometimes challenging, one of the first traditionally published “finds” I had was Need by Carrie Jones. I was immediately drawn into the series. Each book cover is SO stunning, Endure’s is no exception. Look at those colors! Cover aside, the basic story line of Need is fantastic! I’ve always been a fan of fey, pixies, and creatures of that sort. Any “original” take on them draws me in. Jones’ are human-size, but ‘different’.
For previous fans of the series, Endure picks up with the craziness continuing. Nick is safe, but something is different with him. Plus the town is still overcome with not-so-nice pixies. Also in true fashion, the pages are filled with hints at what the outsiders are seeing – police reports, news commentary, and online gossip. This has been one of my favorite factors of the series the entire time, so I’m happy it was continued here.
I personally wanted to give Nick a bit of a lecture. He’s a bit ridiculous in Endure. Zara still remains one of my favorite kick-butt heroines in YA. She goes above and beyond to protect those around her.
All in all, Endure is the perfect ending for a favorite series! Fans are going be satisfied with the way things wrap-up.
I received my copy of Endure from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
