Zara's pixies are locked away in the forest, but that doesn't mean the threat is gone. In captivity, the king's needs grow stronger and his power weakens. When a new king, Astley, arrives and tells Zara she's fated to be his queen, Zara discovers she's in deeper than she ever imagined.
Carrie Jones captivated readers with her evil pixies in Need and this series is showing no signs of slowing down. The sales are hot, the online buzz is still growing, and this sequel pubs in paperback just in time to entice fans with a teaser for the third book in January 2011.

Carrie Jones is an award-winning author who recently graduated from Vermont College's MFA program. In addition to penning Need, she is the author of the YA novels Girl, Hero; Love (and Other Uses for Duct Tape); and Tips on Having a Gay (Ex)-Boyfriend, which was nominated for a YALSA Quick Pick and won the Maine Literary Award as well as the Independent Book Publisher Award (the IPPY) . Her upcoming picture book Moe Berg, the Spy who Played Baseball is being illustrated by Barry Moser. Carrie lives in Maine.
In this sequel, Zara and her "were" and human friends continue to hunt the feral creatures. Despite the fast action and fun dialogue, Julia Whelan's wavering accents distract from what would otherwise be a riveting tale. She compensates with emotional inflections for the teen characters who face challenges both supernatural and mundane. Also, she clearly separates Zara's inner dialogue from her verbal sparring with her boyfriend, grandmother, and an intriguing pixie king who has a vested interested in her. This is an engaging production for listeners who want a captivating tale, but it can't stand alone in the series and doesn't stand out as an audiobook. M.M.O. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
