Review: Entice

Entice
Carrie Jones


Fans of the Twilight saga will find plenty of “loves” in this new addition to the paranormal romance genre. Entice is the third book in Carrie Jones’s series. In this book, Zara, the daring heroine, is out to rescue the love-of-her-life werewolf boyfriend, Nick, from Valhalla. (Yes, the same Valhalla from Norse mythology!) During the second book in the series, Captivate, Zara decides to allow the young and gorgeous pixie king Ansley to turn her into a pixie so that she could start her journey to rescue Nick. Ansley seems to be very considerate and understanding of Zara’s need to rescue Nick. He even vows to help her rescue “her wolf.” Zara’s previous experience with pixies has been far from kittens-and-roses innocence, but she willingly allies herself with the young pixie king. Then people close to her start dying. Suddenly, Zara and Ansley find themselves the target of treachery from the pixie world. Unfortunately, neither of them are able to figure out exactly who is responsible for trying to kill them. Ultimately, Zara makes it to Valhalla and has to battle the evil pixie king, Frank, who was responsible for sending Nick to the hall of fallen warriors in the second book. While battling Frank is difficult for the pacifist Zara, it is not her only problem. Zara has to constantly struggle with balancing her friends, family, and her new pixie king.

Jones includes plot twists and danger at every page turn in her third novel. Her writing style is simple and insightful, at least where the main characters are concerned. Capturing the zeal and intensity of teenage romances seems to be one of Jones’s writing strengths. The passion between Nick and Zara is sizzling, and would make Edward and Bella envious. But Nick and Zara aren’t the only characters with sparks. Readers can feel the embers between Zara and Ansley start to ignite, but Jones keeps us waiting to see what will happen between these two characters.

The ending of Entice leaves Zara with many decisions to make, and a secret that could expose Ansley for the type of pixie he really is—friend or foe. The door is wide open for a fourth novel.
