So when a new, younger pixie king shows up, war is imminent. The new king, Astley, claims he’s not evil, that his pixies can coexist peacefully with humans and were’s. Zara’s boyfriend, Nick, isn’t buying it; no pixie could possibly be a good guy. But Zara is half pixie herself, and she is just starting to think Astley could be right when Astley lets her in on another secret.; he believes Zara’s relationship with Nick is about to come to an end.-and that she is fated to be his queen….
I enjoyed the first book of this series; Need, but when I started reading Captivate. I was struggling from the first chapter on. Many things did not settle right when me in this book. I was having trouble feeling the relationship between Zara and Nick, and I was struggling with the fantasy direction that this book took. In Need the fantasy aspect of the story was coincided with reality, but in this book it seems as though this story is taking on more fantasy and I am having trouble enjoying the read. I don’t see myself reading any other books that may come from this series. Sorry no words of literary wisdom here.
