Need Review

Title: Need

Author: Carrie Jones

Book: (Need, #1)

Pages: 336

Rating: 4.5/5

When you begin this series only read the first book! I like the first book because I have read many series but never like this. This is so unique!
Zara White is a girl who's only company are the phobias she chants to herself. She is forced to move in with her grandmother when her mother decides it is time for her to spend time with her step-father's mother after his death. Her step-father died soon after he saw a man in the window and Zara saw it happen.
Now that she's in Maine she swears she sees the same man following her but whenever she reaches where he was the only thing left is a trail of gold dust. Is she crazy?
Issie, Devyn, and Nick take her in when she finds herself pushed into a new high school. Nick has a secret just like many of her classmates. Nick is a werewolf and as such it is his job to protect humans. From Pixies. Now these are NOT your cute and cuddly types! They are fast and kill you without hesitation. So they can eat you! (YUCK!)
Though her mother is human her father is the Pixie King of Maine so that makes her half pixie. And he wants her mother back! Nick hates pixies so will their love survive? When the battle breaks out Zara will have to choose sides. The Weres or the Pixies.
Ugh this author didn't need to write three more books! This is the best one and it isn't really left open for a second book! Sure you'd expect another book but I never wanted her to ruin it! I didn't want this never this! If you like the first book leave it at that! If you like disappointment then by all means go ahead and read the next three books. But don't say I didn't warn you!

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.
