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 just turned...she's Astley's queen.

This series just gets better and better for me. I love the unique pixie plot. There continues to be shocks and twists at every page and the characters continue to grow and surprise me. I continue to fall more madly in love with Astley. He really made this book for me. I know there are a few Team Nick people left but Astley really blew Nick out of the water with this one.

Zara is on a mission to save Nick from Vahalla but she has no idea how to get there. With the help of the oh so sweet and sexy King Astley, they travel all over following clues on how to enter Vahalla and bring Nick home. Astely is one of the most chivalrous and supporting characters I have ever read about. Even though Zara's heart is for another, right now!, he continues to help and support her through every step of the way. With that kind of love and support who wouldn't fall for him. She definitely begins to see how she leans on him and needs him.

Zara is learning to be a pixie queen and what that means for Astley and his people. She is dealing with a mom and grandma that hate pixies. She is dealing with so much yet stays so strong in her efforts to find Nick. She may take it a bit far though because there is a lot of danger and sacrifice to get Nick back. If you are looking for a lot of action, emotion, surprises, and a great love triangle then this series is for you. I can't wait for the final book, Endure, out May 10th!

"I will find your wolf. I want you to want me because you want me, not because of grief, not because he is not here. I want you to love me for me. I want you to kiss me first and not because you need me to help you, but because you need to kiss me."  

Rating: 5/5 Stars!


  1. I loved this book too! And I ADORE Astley! Nick has always gotten on my nerves some, so I was glad to see Astley enter the picture. *crosses fingers* that she ends up with Astley!

    1. I think she will end up with Astley! He is perfect for her and they make an awesome team. I was never a fan of Nick. I hear his behavior in the last book is also horrible. I can't wait to read it!
