Endure by Carrie Jones

For Review: Bloomsbury
Published: 10 May 2012

From Goodreads: 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 . . .

Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.

I have been super excited to read this one. I've really loved the series and have been dying to find out how it all ends.

The story picks up from where we left it in Entice. Zara is coming to terms with being Pixified, things are strained between her and Nick and the Apocalypse seems closer than ever...

Again I loved all the characters - Issie, Devyn, Betty,  Astley(!) - but Nick kind of disappointed me. Don't get me wrong - I still love him and his alpha-maleness but I just thought he should have been there more for Zara.

I fell in love with Astley in Entice and if possible I fell even more in love with him here. I know many people love Nick but I just found Astley treats her better, he's there for her when she needs him and he treats her as more of an equal.

There were quite a few surprises in this one and I wasn't sure how it was going to end.  There are some great action scenes and some really good moments between the characters.  I would have preferred it to be slightly longer - the ending is so fast paced it almost feels rushed but I loved how it all ended. How everything is tied up.  I don't want to give too much away but there was one point near the end when I thought my heart had stopped!  I may have even shouted NOOOOOO!  It was all very exciting (if slightly panic inducing!)

I really looking forward to reading more by Carrie Jones. I really love this series (so much so I am now the proud owner of the first three on audio so I can listen to them in the car!) and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
