Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that’s not how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is gone. He’s been taken to some mythic place for warriors called Valhalla, where Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. It’s just not going to be easy.
Meanwhile, Bedford needs its warriors more than ever, since a group of evil pixies is devastating the place, with teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent. But even if Zara and her friends can find the way to Valhalla, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to leave with her? Especially considering she hasn’t turned into just any pixie . . . She’s Astley’s queen.

While the other books in the Need series were overall good reads, Entice, is even more captivating. Now in Entice Zara finds herself closer to getting Nick back from where she lost him in Valhalla when he was injured. Zara has found a way to save Nick the boy she loves. In Captivate closer to the ending, Astley a pixie king has given Zara a way to save Nick at the price of her being his pixie queen. Zara who's now a queen at first doesn't like the idea of turning pixie though as days go by she does see that Astley is correct: Pixies don't have to be strictly evil. They can choose to be good. Zara and Astley team up to find Nick. Along the way, Astley is willing to go the distance to prove to Zara how pixies can really be good. Zara and Astley start to get closer than they ever imagined.
Entice is just as good as ever in terms of excitement. The adventure this time is centered around Zara and Astley. For that reason Astley figured into the story more and you'll get to see more of who he is and his past as a pixie prince. As always the Need series is ground in danger and ignited romance. The danger of uncontrolled pixies is still at large bringing further intrigue. The romance between Zara and Astley is felt much more in this latest novel which is new territory. Astley sure is a charming pixie guy who's a really nice addition.
Really hard not to like the guy!
Yes, Entice is a very much an enticing read in the paranormal romance. Carrie Jones keeps on writing some better installments each time. So expect the next novel in the series, Endure, to be hopefully just as good or better than Entice.
Overall: Amazing read!

About the Author
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. Obviously, something didn’t work.
Carrie has a large, skinny white dog and a fat cat. Both like fudgicles. Only the cat likes potatoes. This may be a reason for the kitty’s weight problem (Shh… don’t tell). Carrie has always liked cowboy hats but has never owned one. This is a very wrong thing. She graduated from Vermont College’s MFA program for writing. She has edited newspapers and poetry journals and has recently won awards from the Maine Press Association and also been awarded the Martin Dibner Fellowship as well as a Maine Literary Award.
