Waiting on Wednesday: Captivate

This meme is hosted by the lovely Jill @ Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on:

Captivate by Carrie Jones
Released by Bloomsbury UK on April 5th 2010.

I reviewed Need just a couple of weeks ago. You can read it here. I really enjoyed it so now I cannot wait for the UK release of the sequel.

Here's the blurb from Bloomsbury.com:


A sequel to the US paranormal smash hit Need, which has teens everywhere thinking about pixies in a very different way . . .



Zara and her friends knew they hadn’t solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king’s needs grow deeper every day he’s stuck in captivity, while his control over his people becomes weaker. It’s made him vulnerable. And now there’s a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent. The new pixie king is moving in quickly. He swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he’s one of the good guys. Zara isn’t so sure. Despite herself, she wants to trust the new king, but there’s a lot more than her relationship with boyfriend Nick at stake. It’s her life – and his.

Also, you can read Chapter 1 here.

I love it when the sequel comes out so soon after the first book. It's awesome!

Oh, I'm so glad you reminded me about this! After your review of Need, I was NEEDING to read it. And then I forgot. Now I have remembered again. :-) Must move it to the top of my tbr pile!

Pixies are reeeeeeaaaaally not my thing, but I hope you enjoy it! :) This series seems to be very popular! I like the main character's name though!

I just ordered Need yesterday, so looking forward to that one. This cover is absolutly stunning!

LovesSam said...

I'm looking forward to this one too, even though I didn't really *love* the first book Need, I liked it enough to want to read the sequel. Glad it comes out here so soon! was going to order the US version, but I think i'll stick to my roots and wait for the UK release

Lauren said...

Wow, that is *fast*. I'm not sure why I keep holding back on getting this series, because summaries like that make it sound pretty intriguing!

Lenore said...

I have Need and this one coming up one of these days. God my TBR is going to kill me!

Mel (He Followed Me Home) said...

oh, great pick - I haven't read this yet but it's on my wishlist too :)

Lori said...

I want to read this myself. But I most likely will wait till I can get it at the library. Here's Mine.

Lea said...

Fantastic pick! I wish I had the cash to get it now, but it's looking like I'm going to have to wait until late March. :(

Oooh, a link to chapter one! You rock, Becky! :)

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

I havent read this but it looks wonderful!

Becky said...

Smiles! I knew someone would find the link useful. Go Lea!
