Entice by Carrie Jones
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Zara is now a pixie…she accepted her lineage and allowed Astley to turn her because only the Fae can enter Valhalla which is where Nick is. Devyn is having trouble accepting the fact that Zara is a pixie and that she won’t try to kill him. But does eventually let it go to help Zara and Astley find the way to Valhalla…which they finally do find, but the road is not a smooth one and some friends do lose their lives.
This story was a bit gut-wrenching because Zara is single-minded in her focus to get Nick. To the point where she almost dies. To say that her family and friends get frustrated with her is an understatement. And all the while Astley is there supporting her, being her friend, and not pushing any other agenda.
When Astley first came on the scene, I like many, couldn’t really get a read on him. I was afraid he was going to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I am happy to think that he is as good as he seems. Although his rule as King is not an easy life and a couple of times he does let it get him, it just endears us to him all the more. I think I may be changing from “Team Nick” to “Team Astley”…I may have to wait for the final book, “Endure” to fully decide whose side I am on.
Zara has a really rough road ahead of her. She is focused on getting Nick back but all the while she is afraid that when he finds out she had to turn, that he will hate her. Nick has made it clear from the beginning that he hates pixies above all else. What’s a girl to do? In Zara’s case she keeps plodding ahead and hoping for the best.
I have a lot of questions after Entice and the galley for the final book, “Endure”. I hope to know how this series wraps up sometime today. Time will tell, I guess.
