This Week's Litique - Pure Bookvana

Now fans of Stephenie Meyer, P. C. Cast, and Melissa Marr have a new author to devour...

Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipstick. No wonder, since life's been pretty rough so far. Her father left a long time ago, her stepfather just passed away, and her mother's pretty much checked out. Now Zara's living with her grandmother in a cold, sleepy Maine town where the most exciting thing locals can count on is the occasional heat wave. Of course, Zara doesn't think she's in any real danger. She just thinks her mom can't deal.

That is, until she starts noticing someone out of the corner of her eye. Someone following school...everywhere. And, wherever she turns, she finds his trail  run amuck with neat, orderly piles of gold-kissed glitter. She knows he isn't a figment of her imagination. Even she couldn't dream up something this strange. But what is he? And why is he following her? 

Apparently, he's a pixie - and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He's the kind that  has dreadful, uncontrollable needs.The kind that wants Zara to somehow, some way, fulfill his deepest, darkest desires - whatever the cost.

Oozing with suspense, romance, and intrigue, this exciting breakout novel has all the undertones of the wildest of fairy tales - all the ones the Grimm Brothers got dead wrong.

So basically,  Zara is Bella with a backbone. And, so far, that's good enough for me.

P. S. - Here's a trailer for it from YouTube. Enjoy!

Disclaimers:  Need was first published in December of 2008 by Bloomsbury.
