Goodreads Synopsis:  It’s all-out war (and no-holds-barred romance) in the climactic conclusion to Carrie Jones’s bestselling series.

Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, 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 . . .

Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.

My Review:
Where do I begin with this? It was totally epic and amazing! Carrie Jones is fearless in writing the last book in the Need series and I'm so sad that its finally ending! Despite it being short, it was full on a fast paced, plot driven novel with romance not as a main theme. I'll definitely miss all these characters!

Endure picks off right where Entice left off, Nick returns from Valhalla and Zara isn't sure if he has the same feelings for her and she is Astley's queen. One of the best aspects of this book was the plot. Carrie Jones kicks it up a notch and goes all out with Zara's spunkiness and full blown personality! Telling what happens here would give away a lot, so Endure is more of a read it for yourself type of book. One thing about the plot is Zara choices kills the reader, literally. In addition, the pixies flow with the book and everything leading up to Endure makes sense now. Plus Carrie Jones makes Zara and Issie full of laughs and humor!

Not a love driven story! Yes, that's right! Endure doesn't head to the direction of a love paranormal type of book. *wipes sweat* If you first picked up Need you got instantly a love romance book..but it turns to be more when you stay with the books, which I did and never regret! Zara and Issie were loads of fun in this book! We say a side to Issie we never saw, and I give her props for bravery! Nick was really a jerk in this one, but I get where he's coming from and he gets better as the book goes on. Astley was also amazing in this one to Zara but you discover his true motives later on and it's not that happy.

Overall, Endure was a wonderful conclusion to the Need series. It had everything Carrie Jones carried throughout all her novels, with humor, touch of romance, and the ending could have been better, just saying. I LOVED Endure and I hope Carries Jones writes a new book this year, please!
