My review of Endure

Endure (Need #4) by Carrie Jones
Release Date: May 8, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon | The Book Depository

Endure (Need, #4)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 . . .

Endure is the fourth and final book in the Need series. Zara White is back one more time to fight evil blue pixies and save the world. Shocking twists and an unexpected romance turn, Endure is the conclusion that all fans have been waiting for.

After rescuing Nick from Valhalla, Zara is back to fight the evil pixies lurking around every corner of the city. She has to prepare her team of pixies and friends for a gruesome battle. Being a pixie queen isn't easy, Zara's had to make sacrifices and take risks. But will they pay off in this battle against evil monsters? 

Taking a brake from all the fighting, there's something else Zara has to realise. Where does her heart belong? That's what all fans have been waiting for, right? Nick, the wolf, or Astley, the pixie king. Carrie Jones has written a cute and heart-breaking story line. 

Zara is a confident and strong heroine. She has grown so much since we first met her in Need, when she was that strange girl mumbling phobias to her self. She is now strong enough to make her own decisions, stand up for herself and take on anything thrown her way. 

I felt that in this book, we see a harsher, more closed-minded side of Nick. For half the book he was plain annoying. He couldn't simply accept the fact that his girlfriend became a pixie to save him. No, he has to act like she's a monster. What happened to 'unconditional love'? You can't love someone and then feel differently just because they aren't the right species. He had some good moments in the book, too. The very few glimpses of the kind and caring Nick inside. 

Now on to....Astley! Wooo! Team Astley! The pixie king for the win. I loved the fact that we saw more of him in this book. He is a truly great character. I enjoyed reading every single page with his name on it. He stands beside Zara no matter how crazy her ideas are, he lets her make her own decisions and, most importantly, he loves her for who she is inside, not her species. *Growls at Nick*

Reading the Need series has been an entertaining and exciting roller-coaster. Even though I'm sad to see it end, I will definitely be checking out more of Carrie Jones' work. Want a crazy, action-packed pixie book? Pick up this series.



  1. ouch.. the finally book,trustly i have not read this series but cross finger i will, even buy or borrow from my friend.

    nice review :)

  2. Great review! I haven't read any of the books in this series yet, but they're definitely on my TBR!

  3. I have read Need and the second book, darn can't think of it's name. I have to admit by the end of 2nd book I really liked Astley, I need ( no pun intended) to finish this series:D

    Great review!


  4. Thanks for your review. I'll admit, this is the first time I've heard about this series & it sounds like something I'd like to read, plus the cover is amazing. Adding it to my TBR list. :)

  5. Didn't realize this series had ended, need to drag my copies out and have a marathon "Need" read

  6. There needs to be a new one because I want to know if they defeat all of them (pixies) its like zaras still wondering if there still there which they are but still i feel like it shouldn't be over:(

  7. It's just that

  8. It's just that she can't just end the. Books like that there's so much more like does nick ever get over Zara and if he doesn't what does he do and what about astley and zaras love what happens if another pixie king comes there's so much more Carrie jones if your reading this make a new. Book explaining everything then you can end it it's so unfair how you ended it. Some people may disagree but it's not in my mind.

  9. I cannot believe that I have not read this yet. What in the world is wrong with me? I have the book. Yeah, I am seriously a dummy. I think I say that a lot, but my word! Sometimes it is so true. I am so glad that you enjoyed this. Thanks so much for the great review!

  10. first i love nick..then i hate nick because he can't accept zara...that's cruel !!
    i think he isn't in love with her like he said before....

  11. I agree with you, Nick annoyed me also! But it made me love Astley even more!!

  12. Thank you for a fantastic review! I love the beautiful cover that is so magical and pretty. Having read your thoughts on it, i am definately now concidering reading this book.
