"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 just turned. She's Astley's queen."

Why must authors torture me so? Because they like to do it. They like to see us readers squirm in our seat as we anxiously read their wonderful work of literature. This series is one that I have been following since the very beginning. I was hooked from book one, and have not been able to put this series down.

Poor Zara. Crushed by the fact that her love is gone, she is searching for anyway to get Nick back. As she does this, her fears begin to speak louder in her mind as her search for Nick closes. Zara has lost so many people she is unsure of who she will lose next.

Zara is weak in this book. Only because her search for Nick makes her lose herself. Zara has no one left and is using Astley as her crutch. And Astley allows its. He is so sweet in helping Zara look for Nick even when his heart is at stake. But in a way, I think he knows what he is doing. I think he believes that there is a possibility that they may not be able to get Nick back. And by being there for Zara, it leaves way for love to happen. IDK, just saying'. Plus she is his queen.

The journey itself was great to read. We see Zara going to every length that she could to save Nick. We also see her fight herself. Will she be lost and become evil? Zara is constantly on edge and is always questioning herself. It is only in Astley that she finds peace and knows that not everything is evil.I was rooting for Zara to find herself and her love Nick.

The Need series just gets better and better. I loved reading this book and totally lost myself in it. If you have not pick up this series you should. Definitely a must read!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!

    Guess I have a lot to look forward to. Thanks for the review, Savy.
