If you were a Twilight series fan and you need a paranormal fix you may want to check out this book. It has all the elements of a great fantasy sprinkled with a little humor. Creatures from myth we're familiar with appear along with another mythical creature of folklore that has been underused, giving this book an edge to the vampire flooded market of teen fiction. However, Need does not flow as well as Twilight and the characters seemed a wee bit underdeveloped but I would read it again and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
Check out your copy today.
From the book jacket:
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 dies. 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.
