Synopsis: Need - Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.
She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.
Captivate - Zara and her friends thought they'd solved the pixie problem. And they did - sort of. The pixie's are all locked away, deep in the woods. But the king's needs grow stronger each day that he is in captivity, while his control over his people weakens. And it's enough to draw a new king into town. Astley claims he is different. He claims there are pixies who can live peacefully with humans, that it doesn't have to be all violence and nastiness all the time. Zara wants to believe him...until Astley also claims that she is fated to be his queen.
There is no way Zara would ever turn pixie. And she's got good friends who will make sure of that. Besides, she and Nick are so in love they're practically inseparable. But when they very thing Zara wants to protect most is exactly what's at risk, she is forced to make choices she never imagined....
Entice - Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together for ever. But that's not quite how things have worked out. For starters, Nick has gone. He has been taken to the mythical place for warriors known as Valhalla. Zara and her friends might be able to get him back, it's just not going to be easy. Meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But even if Zara and her friends do discover the route to Valhalla, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't turned into just any pixie... She's Astley's queen.
Endure - 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 . . .
This series easily became one of my favourites as soon as I started reading Need! After reading the rest of the series I fell in love with it! I wasn't really sure about reading this series after I read the word Pixie but I decided to give it a shot and I am so glad that I did! It had everything that I love in a book series! Great plots, amazing characters and a love triangle that didn't make me want to gouge my eyes out! I loved that each book had an individual plot but each book also had the same theme running through it! I also loved that there were a lot of supernatural elements in this series as well! The writing in these books was pretty original and maybe that is one of the reasons that I love this series so much! The characters were written amazingly! Zara White was the main character of this series and I loved her! She grew so much throught this series and she also went through so much! Nick was the main love interest of Zara and he was so hot and protective of her! Astley was the other love interest of Zara and I liked him as well but I was always Team Nick! There were lots of secondery characters in this series as well! Some good and some evil but they all brought so much to the plots and also to this series! This series was just amazing as a whole! Each cover is beautiful and they really suit the series! I also loved how Carrie used fears in the books!
