NEED BY CARRIE JONES

 

 

You NEED to read this book. Seriously. It’s smashing. And brilliant.

There are pixies in it. Don’t think Tinkerbelle or even Wee Free Men. These pixies have silver eyes and shark-like teeth. They bite, suck blood and can steal your soul away with a kiss. Or kill you.

 

Zara White’s father is dead. Zara misses him so much that she feels dead inside. Her mother, fearing that Zara might be suicidal, sends her to Maine to live with her grandmother. Zara does not embrace the move from warm and sunny Charleston to cold and bleak Maine. “Bad time of year for Maine, though. Winter. Cold as hell.” Along with the difficulty of learning to drive in icy conditions, navigating a new school and making new friends (and enemies), some weird things are happening around town. Teenage boys are going missing again. Just like they did ten years ago. Has a serial killer returned to the area, leaving gold dust as his calling card? Does the man Zara thinks is stalking her have something to do with the disappearances?

 

Need is suspenseful right from the start, an exciting page-turner full of mystery and just the right amount of romance. The book will make your skin crawl but you won’t be able to put it down because you’ll NEED to know what happens next. Like Stephen King, Carrie Jones populates Maine with her fantastical creatures and masterfully tells a story.

I URGE you to read NEED.

Good review! I knew you'd like it, which is why I forced it upon you recommended it.

As usual your force feeding is good stuff.
