“This series is good, but a little ammature for me to read. It was good though. I like the story. Getting into the Norse gods though is a little off topic.”Olivia Z wrote this review 9 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Although I liked this book a lot, it wasn't quite as great as the rest of the series because of some flaws with the plot. There was a lot of action and great foreshadowing, but the main plot was Zara trying to rescue Nick; although I love Nick and definitely wanted to see him rescued, I felt like more importance should have been given on the other events. When Zara's mom said that they were risking too much to rescue Nick, I kind of found myself agreeing, and while Issie's arguments to the contrary helped a little, it was still hard to swallow.
Still, I loved the characters, especially Astley and his relationship with Zara - it's so interesting and dynamic, and although I could see the love-triangle coming, it's one of the few times I don't mind it because both male characters are likable. I also liked the incorporation of more mythology and the way the Vahalla was described. Although this book sort of felt like a filler book for the series, it set up a lot of great plots to explore in the next one, and I can't wait to read Endure. ”

“What's with the Carrie Jones overload lately, you may ask? Well, I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in a blog tour for Endure, which comes out on May 8, and I had not had the opportunity to read the previous three books in the series. Obviously, I could not do a review if I had not read all of the books, so I decided to check them all out from the library and hurry through them. Luckily, I enjoy each book more than the last, and Entice is no exception. I cannot wait to start reading Endure!
Entice picks up, literally, Captivate left off. Zara and company are attending the school dance when things get even uglier. Pixies, pixies, everywhere. It's not safe for anyone to be in Bedford anymore. Zara knows that she has to get Nick back in order to make the town safe again. While I felt that Zara was extremely selfish in wanting Nick back so badly that she didn't care who died in order for him to come back, I also understand that she, and the others, seemed to feel that the town could not be safe without him. If that's what it takes in order to defeat these evil pixies, then I guess sacrificing a few for the greater good is okay, right? I'll hold out judgement until the end of Endure as to whether I thought this was a good idea or not.
Zara grows a lot as a character during this novel, and a lot of the awkward clumsy wording is gone, which is good. Either Jones got a new editor, or she realized that the sentences she was writing before weren't quite English. Zara still explains things differently than most, but it's in coherent sentences, at least. I love Astley even more in this novel than I did in the last one. He's just fantastic. I really hope Zara ends up with him. We also got to see a new side of Betty, which is interesting. I can't wait to see what happens with that. Zara's mom got on my nerves because she was such a bigot. Issie grew up quite a bit, too, and I really like Cassidy. I'm glad she's a permanent addition. Some new characters were introduced in this novel, but we don't really get to know any of them.
The plot is pretty suspenseful, and I was kept on the edge of my seat until the very last page. I couldn't put the book down. The pacing was quick, and nothing felt rushed to me. I would have liked some more details on a few things, but overall, I felt that the pacing was good. This book ended on another cliffhanger, but that's to be expected. A lot of questions were answered throughout the novel, but there is still a big, "what's going to happen next?" at the end. At least we know that Endure will answer all of the questions and not end on a cliffhanger since it's the last book of the series.
Overall, I'd recommend this book to anyone who's a fan of the supernatural/paranormal/faerie/pixie/shifter type books. I really enjoyed it, and I'm sure you will too! Remember to visit my blog on May 8 for my release date tour, complete with a guest post from Ms. Jones herself as well as my review of Endure, the series finale! ”
