Endure (Need, #4)Zara is at the center of an all-out war, and an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Bedford is being ravaged by evil pixies and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends, she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king…




I'm going to be one of those people that bursts someone's bubble because I felt Endure lacking something special. I have said this in my reviews of the other books in the series, but Nick annoys me. I was completely put off in book 2 with his over use of the word "baby". When he called Zara baby in this book, I felt the hair on my neck stand up. Instant annoyance.

Luckily, Nick only plays a supporting role in Endure. He's there, but he isn't the center of everything. Personally, I felt like he was a big pile of poo, but I went a long with the story. The only thing that kept me reading was the mythology. It is very hard to find YA books that incorporate Norse mythology. When I discovered the twist in the series during book 3, I knew I had to see where things would go. It was the mythology that drew me in. I would dare to say that fans of mythology would enjoy this to some degree because the author did do a nice job of incorporating the myths into a story about the Fae.

Do I consider this one 4 star worthy like many on Goodreads? Heck no. I'm not even sure I would rate it at all. It was just one of those things I felt inclined to read, but didn't care if I did or not. I hate to say it, but it's one of those take it or leave it kind of series, and you wouldn't really be missing anything earth shattering if you decided to leave it.
