I been wanting to read Need since I came across it at Barnes & Noble, few months earlier. However, I didn’t have money to purchase it at the time. I finally had chance, to check out at the library, and I glad I did. I was hooked right from start, more I read; the more I wanted to see what happened next. The language, writing was beautifully written. I enjoyed reading the style that Carrie wrote in, it was unique. Every page kept me on edge of my seat; I’m looking forward, to rest of the series.


  Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now. She couldn't be more wrong.

 Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

What I found unique about the novel, was way Jones listed phobia’s, at each chapter. I even came across some that I didn’t think existed. It fit the story as well, since Zara seemed fascinated with them most of the book. Zara. First, I completely love that name, it’s different. I loved the character right from the start, even though I did feel sorry for her in beginning, because of her father, of her mother sending her away. Through the book, I could see how she changed, how much more she matured, especially towards the end, when they trapped the faeries. She has courage.

Zara & Nick. I loved their relationship, I had feeling that he cared about her, right from start. Just the way he helped her at start, and way that he kept on helping her after that. Actually, I couldn’t understand why Ian disliked him; Nick seemed like decent enough guy. He even came to Issie’s defense when she was being picked on. That was sweet. He always seemed there, when Zara needed him, and the way he tried to protect her, make sure nobody would hurt. I found myself smiling when they finally kissed, and whenever they would kiss, it put smile on my face. Their relationship had so much tension, desire.

The faerie stalker put a mystery to it. Even after I found out its faerie, I was still curious who he was, and why he kept following Zara. I did not expect it to be Zara’s father that was unexpected. That was only time I wasn’t happy with Nick; he acted like such ass, after he found out. I was surprised as Zara was thought. It was a great twist though. I also enjoyed that not all shape shifters were Werewolves but different animals, made it more interesting. I didn’t expect for Zara’s grandmother to be one though.

Need, is filled with tons of action, mystery and even has quite bit romance, it’s worth reading. I’m eager to find out what happens with Zara, Nick and her friends next.
