Summery:Pain shoots through my head. Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain. The white world goes dark and I know what’s about to happen.

Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right – not human – in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you’d have to fear.


My Review: I was recommended the book from a few people, who also said i would love the series. I seen a few people reading it, so i had to see what the hype was about. I really did like how each chapter list a Phobia and what it means, it made it where i couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter just to see other phobias. The cover is simple but sometimes less is more, i like simple sometimes, and i thought the cover was pretty.

The story is an one point of view, Zara is all about saving the world and doing whats right. She moved to Maine after she went threw a depressed stage when her Father died ( who was actually her step dad ). She discovers about Pixies and Weres, Weres are like werewolfs and other type of animal, they also are called swifters. The writing is simple, i like that because then the story doesn’t get to boring with too much detailed, the book is easy to follow. I thought the story was nice touch, i really like the concept of it.

After finishing Need, i now have Hylephobia ( fear of woods ), thanks Carrie. I really like Zara and Nick but besides them my favorite character is Issie, Why? Well because she likes hello kitty, and i am obsessed with hello kitty.

I really liked the series and Highly recommend it to any super
