Captivate by Carrie Jones
Need pixies book two.
What's it about?My review
Zara and her friends thought they'd solved the pixie problem. And they had - sort of. They're locked away, deep in the woods. But the king's needs grow stronger each day that he's in captivity, while his control over his people weakens. Who will fill the power vacuum? Astley. He claims he's different. He claims that it doesn't have to be violence and nastiness all the time. Zara wants to believe him...until Astley also claims that she's fated to be his queen.
There's not way Zara would ever turn pixie. And she's got good friends who'll make sure of that. But besides, she and Nick are so in love they're practically inseparable. But when the very thing Zara most wants to protect is exactly what's at risk, she's forced to make choices she never imagined.
It's as wonderfully written as the first one, instead of each chapter being named after a phobia this time, they start with a 'Pixie tip' from a guide Zara and Devyn are writing, which I thought was a lot of fun.
The story took some fun twists I didn't predict and had a great ending, I'm dying to find out what happens next and I loved the introduction or Norse mythology!
My thoughts on the cover
As gorgeous as the first of course! Love the gold eye and the tear and all the pixie dust, they sit together well :)
