Publisher's Summary

Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane . . . but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now. She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.
In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you'd have to fear.

"An exciting venture filled with nasty evil creatures, nail-biting action and heart-pounding romance." ("It's not hard to see Twilight in the DNA of this novel....Genre fans will enjoy the sizzle between Nick and Zara as well as the paranormal cast." ( Publishers Weekly)

Taken by a good way.

This is what I have to label as one of the sweetest young adult paranormal romance novels that I’ve ever read. (Well listened to). I wouldn’t say that it was the greatest PNR to ever be written, or even one of the best, but...I’m completely smitten with Zara and Nick and am dying for more. Through the whole novel I just wanted to sigh in contentment as Carrie Jones described normal feelings and events so well that I could almost taste them on my tongue. Between Carrie Jone’s words and the perfect narration by Julia Whelan I was in Young Adult bliss. The sweetness that was the blooming relationship between Zara and Nick and the intensity that was Zara’s passions for her beliefs and hurt over losing her father made the novel brilliant. I had certain expectations going into NEED and I can admit I was taken completely by surprise.

The book was narrated by Julia Whelan, who is absolutely amazing. I love narration that just breaths the main character and Whelan conveyed Zara perfectly and then switched into the other characters with ease. Her pronunciation was also seamless. She has narrated a lot of books, including ELIXIR which I also reviewed. (Didn't like that book though - but the writing not the narration). I'm almost templted to download The Magnolia League just so I can hear her again.

Loved this series!

What did you love best about Need?

The romance. If you liked Twilight you'll love this series.

What did you like best about this story?

You got so into the book you couldn't wait for the next and I was sad when I finished the whole series.

What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She had a way to make you feel as if you were in the Fae world yourself.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

You don't want the series to ever end!

I picked up this book on a gamble and was caught instantly by the lively and discriptive style of writing. Need is both gripping and funny. Told from the point of view of the heroin, Zara, in the first person, this is the strongest narrative voice I've heard in a while. Perfectly written and perfectly narrated, Need is a must-read for lovers of the paranormal. A real gem!
