And now, on with the review! First off, AWESOME cover, right? Right. This is one of those covers that you see and don't care what the book is about--you're going to read it no matter what!
Introducing Entice by Carrie Jones:
Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that's not quite how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and 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 how to get to Valhalla? And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, 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.
My favorite thing about this book: Carrie Jones makes Astely, pixie king to Zara's pixie queen, absolutely irresistible. He's flawed yet noble. And wholly devoted to Zara, even though she is sort of using him to save Nick.
What I liked about Zara: She's, well, breakable. Things never go quite right for her and she pays for it with physical injuries as well as the consequence of facing a mad mother and grandma.
The other thing I liked: Carrie Jones works magic with the teen voice. She's awesome at prose, at humor, at description, at making each character quirky.
Over all, this was a great read! Go check it out here!
