Endure by Carrie Jones (Need #4)
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. From Goodreads.
What an ending!!! Although I do have to say I am not sure whether Zara was a pixie in the end or if she was human. It was one of those questions that I had. But most of my questions were answered. Now throughout the series, I was all Nick and Zara are amazing together but when Astley came in, I was like “hmmm, I like him more with Zara.” He never under estimates her, he worries and cares about her but still allows her to be herself.
Since Nick got back from Valhalla, he barely wanted anything to do with Zara even though she risked everything to get him back. The good news is that they eventually work out their issues but decide it is better to be friends then to be dating because he couldn’t get over the fact that she was a pixie. Plus eventually she realizes how she really feels about Astley.
Now Astley has to deal with a lot of things, his mom betraying him, Zara getting hurt over and over again, her love for Nick, no one believing or trusting him other than Zara and Issie. But man did I love him, he cared about Zara no matter what she was, whether human or pixie, he wanted her to choose him.
The end of the world came and of course Zara saved it, after having to deal with everything and surviving. Realizing how she felt about Astley is probably the greatest thing in the whole book, I wanted them together and when they finally figured it out, she had to give up everything for him. But not just for him, for Issie and Devyn and Cassidy and Nick and her grams and mom. She wanted them to have the ending that they needed.
Of course everything worked out great because that is how it is supposed to go which made me happy. In the end I just wanted the happily ever after. Of course it is not guaranteed but it was close enough for me.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
