Zara, Nick, Betty and their friends Issie and Devyn return to their normal lives after dealing with the King and his pixies in Need. Unfortunately, their normal life routine is short-lived when pixies from other territories come to Bedford, Maine to try to take over Zara’s father’s territory. Captivate sees Zara and Nick grow closer, even as Astley, a young pixie king arrives in Bedford and has a very peculiar effect on Zara. The friends try to find ways to save everyone from the pixies and to prevent the War while making very difficult decisions.
I loved Captivate, the sequel to Need. The story kept me engaged all the way to the end. The characters became more real as I read along. The world of pixies was a new one for me and Carrie Jones did a wonderful job at drawing me in.
I tried to find whether there are any plans for a third book and I found mention of the potential but nothing concrete. To that I say – there HAS to be one! I NEED to know what happens with Zara and Nick! and then there’s Issie and Devyn – and Cassidy, the half-elf – what role will she play? Ugh… I NEED more! Please give me the third and final chapter in the world of Pixies.
She responds with a quote, ” ‘People sleep peacefully in their bed at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.’ That guy who wrote Animal Farm said that, I think. The Orwell guy.” p.207
