Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.
Sadly I could not right a review without including some things that will spoil the first book, Need. Please do not read if you intend to read the first book.

Amazing. That's all I can say. Okay not really, but it's the first word that comes to mind when I think about this book.

Need was the first book in this series and Captivate picks up where Need left. The pixies are in captivity and all is well. Until more pixies come to town. That's not the worst part, there is a new pixie king in town too and he wants Zara to be his queen.

This book shows you how deep Zara and Nick truly care about each other and than puts a strain on the relationship. Zara faces many conflicts and you won't know what is coming next. This book is far better and more interesting than the first. If you were unsure about Need, I'm positive you will be sure about this one.

You will not be able to put this book down and will be left wanting more. I certainly was left with a slight book depression after reading Captivate.

Overall this book was fantastic and I cannot wait to read Entice.

Rating: 5 stars / 5 stars
