Review: Need By Carrie Jones

Paperback, 306 pages
Published February 1st 2010 by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC

Pain shoots through my head
        Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain.
     The white world goes dark and I know what's about to happen

    Zara Whit suspects a freaky guy is stalking her. She memorizes phobias and chants them when she's nervous. OK, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But moving to a freezing Maine town to stay with her grandmother is supposed to be the perfect fix - so her mum says.
Except, this plan of sending Zara away to help her stay sane? Yeah, not working. Turns out the stalker is not a figment of Zara's imagination. He's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Main town, and all signs are pointing to Zara.(Goodreads)

Review and Rating: 4
    Normally I'm quite picky about what faerie or pixie books I will read but Carrie Jones has done a great job. She separated the pixies from the faeries and has created their own interesting world. She also expanded on the Were territory giving it a new direction. I also loved the phobias listed throughout the book they were very entertaining. For such a young author Carrie Jones has done a wonderful job and I will definitely be reading the rest of this series and would recommend it to fans of Melissa Marr.
