Zara and her friends knew that the pixie problem wasn't solved. The king's needs grow deeper each day, while he is in captivity. While the control of the king's subjects grows weaker everyday. It makes him more vunerable and now their is a new king in town. A war over this territory will start any day and the new pixie king, Astley has an immense interest in Zara. Astley says that Zara and him are destined to be together and that there is also a such thing as a good pixie. It also doesn't help that Zara rescued him one day in the woods. Nick isn't buy it, though Zara isn't as sure. Despite everything that Zara knows about pixies, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.
Captivate picks up shortly after Need. Zara is such an amazing character and it was awesome to see all of the growth that she had in Need and how she continued to grow. I also love Nick, he is awesome and super sweet. He called Zara, "baby" during the whole book and it was a bit annoying. He also was way too protective. I liked Astley, but I just feel like I can't trust him. Devyn and Issie are great together and they are meant to be with one another. I loved how much action there was in Captivate and the story was really interesting. It was a really original story and had tons of twist and turns. Carrie Jones is an amazing writer and knows how to plot a book well. Jones is also great at making sequels and she smoothly picked everything up. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes Need or paranormal romance. It will do just what the title says, captivate.
