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.
Wow. Oh,my! You don’t know how hard it is for me to put into words my thoughts on this book! I admit that I am not a big fan of the whole pixies and fairy theme in books. I was hesitant on even signing up for this tour for that fact alone. Yet, the summary intrigued me. I just had to read this book because I have heard so many positive things about this series and author. Granted, I should have started this series from book one, but instead I jumped in and started with book three. I regret not reading the first two now, because I am addicted to this series now. I have already ordered my copies of the first two books just so I can have my Need fix!
Without going into too many spoilers, this book had suspense, intrigue, romance, paranormal, myth and conflict all rolled into a nicely bound book! Now, I need to find the time to start this series from the beginning so I can truly enjoy this book again for a second time! If you are fan of the series, you will be captivated by this installment of the story!
