ENTICE is the third book in the internationally bestselling NEED series, which is wild and awesome and pixilicious. I completely made up that word.

I hope that’s good news.

The third book was released on 3 January 2011 in the UK and December 14, 2010 in the U.S.

Here is the quickie summary:

Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that’s not quite how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he’s been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it’s taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day.

An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla? And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn’t turned into just any pixie. . . She’s Astley’s queen.


I wrote it. I was scared. I wrote a lot. My editor told me to revise it. I wrote more. I pet the dogs. I procrastinated. I finished.
