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 turned into just any pixie. . . She's Astley's queen.
Carrie Jones' Need series has continuously gotten better with each book. In this book our heroine has to deal with the fact that things might not be as black and white as she once thought when it comes to Pixies. Our heroine faces some tough choices and continually grows because of them and all of her courage is tested in the third installment of the need series. I loved this book because not only does Zara learn that not everything is what it seems even in the supernatural world, but because she grows in other ways too. This book was full of surprises and had some wonderful interactions with the characters helping readers learn a little more about them and have better understanding of the things going on. Highly recommended!
