My summary:
Zara has never been the same since her stepdad died on the kitchen floor, in front of her. She is emotionless and collects and chants phobias. Oh, and she believes she is being stalked.
But Zara thinks it is a little dramatic to send her away from her mother and to freezing Maine to stay with her Gramma, Betty, to stay 'sane'.
But no matter what her mother thinks, the crazy things Zara claim to be real, crazy things like the beings that follow her, whispering her name in the darkness and leaving trails of gold dust everywhere... are not her imagination.
In the snow covered woods of Maine, unimaginably dangerous creatures lurk, killing innocent people, to find what they are seeking...

... Zara.

This book is fantastic. I honestly have never read a book about pixies and before I read this I would have said the idea was silly. But Carrie Jones has captured the sense of foreboding and hesitance of Zara moving to a new school and town. She also shows Zara's anger at her mother for sending her away to stay 'sane'. I love how Zara is a strong character who does not find the opportunity to mope about her life.
You don't need to be a fae or pixie lover to read this book.
Carrie Jones's exquisite detailing and observation leaves readers wanting more. ( )

I loved this book and am now going to get the second book in the series =D I'll be honest, I found this book quite boring when I first started reading it. It wasn't until I was about a quarter of the way through it that I really started getting into it. I'm so glad I stuck this book out. The characters, I love...the plot is really good. I'd really recommend this book =) In fact, I'd say that Carrie Jones is a much better writer than Stephenie Meyer. ( )

Meet Zara...a high school student who is having a hard time coping with the death of her father. Now her Mom suddenly wants to pack her off to Maine and Zara just doesn't get it. As the new kid in the school she makes friends but she also makes enemies...more of one than the other. Zara is also eat up with phobias and finds that it's difficult to trust herself or anyone else. Some of the "people" that begin to show interest in Zara aren't friends or enemies...they aren't even people. Meet the Pixie's. Not the cute little gold dust scattering creatures but something else entirely. The Pixie king wants Zara but for what? That is the big question. If you want an enjoyable quick read...this one is for you. It's the first by this author that I've read but I will be looking for more. ( )

Need is one of those stories that brings together two subplots I have difficulty dealing with separately, in perfect harmony. For anyone who hasn't read this, I don't want to give too much away, but this story is much like Twilight except much easier to read!

It is refreshing to see a character like Zara in a story like this. Strong, comfortable in her own skin, brave. She is the type of character that is ready to take on anything to save others. I was smitten with the mention of Amnesty International in this book. I love when characters have causes that they support!

Nick? Hunk. We'll leave it at that. Every book that deals with the paranormal needs at least one literary hunk. Word candy if you will?

In the story, Zara has taken to naming phobias as a way to deal with her father's death and everything going on around her. It is actually really fun to learn a new phobia name and cause every time you start a new chapter! I thought this fit in nicely with the overall plot.

I really did like this book. A lot. I cannot wait to read the next one! ( )

Ah… this was a very… interesting book, to say the least.
This is a fairy book, in case anyone is wondering.
In the beginning, it reminded me of Twilight a little, because everyone knew her name for the same reason everyone knew Bella’s name in Twilight. And that was lame.
This whole book also felt very… juvenile. The characters seemed only half-there, if you ask me. and they didn’t entirely make sense.
Also, I think there should be a census or something where all the authors get together and make a lis of names like these are names for good characters, these are names for antagonists, these are names for love interests, and no author should be allowed to take a name from the list of love interests and name an antagonist that, because at the beginning I was lulled into liking Ian for no reason other than he as named Ian an we all remember how nice Ian was in The Host. So.
This wasn’t a BAD book. It wasn’t the BEST book, either, though. It was an… interesting book.
Yeah, that about sums it up. Interesting.
Now, just cuz I have to, here’s some fave quotes:

“Yep. You drop an ice cube in the toilet and dance around chanting ‘Snow. Snow. Snow.’”
“Until it melts.”


This is (an incomplete) quote about how the character performs the snow dance. Now, I’m not sure if it varies ffrom state to state or if mine is different just because, but my version of the snow dance says you must drop and ice cube down the toilet at an odd-numbered hour (1,3,5,7,9, etc.) and then turn in a circle three times while chanting ‘Snow. Snow. Snow.’ And then flush the ice cube own the toilet. It this ritual carries over past the hour (1:01, 3:01, etc) it’s invalidated.
How do YOU do the snow dance? Any variations?
Seriously, I’m curious.

“Oh my God! Issie’s a bunny, isn’t she? Do they have those? Do they have werebunnies?”

No, but it would be TOTALLY awesome if they did.

“I’ll take care of them. You lovebirds just sit on the couch and think swooning things at each other.”

“Think swooning things” I’ll be sure to keep THAT mind when I get a boyfriend.

Uh… that’s it, for this book. So, bye.
