Zara is deeply depressed after the death of her stepfather who was more like her actual father. Her mother sends her to live with her grandmother, Betty, to try to get her out of her depression in wintry Maine. There she meets beautiful boys Ian and Nick. Ian is friendly and outgoing and involved with everything. Nick is a loner who does not like Ian for some reason. Both boys take an interest in Zara who is too depressed with the memory of her father’s death to pay them more than courtesy attention.

Adding to her problems is a strange man who seems to be following her. Her new friends tell her it’s the pixie king who, until he finds a queen, is abducting boys until he finds a queen to fulfill his needs. And it looks like he’s set his sights on someone.

Need did remind me of Twilight in that it’s about a girl who is sent away by her mother and is unhappy about that move. She meets two guys who like her but one blows her off at first. She is not necessarily the brightest but she comes around and saves the day. The difference is that Zara has an actual reason to be unhappy after witnessing her father have a heart attack and die and her family is carrying its own secrets too. I enjoyed this book although it had a slow start.


  1. Sounds interesting. I'll have to look for that one.

    I like your blog! I'm jealous of your layout, it's really cool looking. Did you design it yourself?

  2. Thanks. No, I didn't design it myself, just made some adjustments. This is the person who made it but I got it from another website I can't find right now. I thought it worked for a book blog.

  3. I really loved this book and yes, it had the same pull for me as the Twilight series. I can't wait for the next book!
