Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.
Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.
Okay, this was a totally cute, quick read. And when I checked out the facebook page for the series, I accidentally read a spoiler from the next book, Captivate (which has, quite possibly, the most awesome cover, ever. If I ever get published, I want a cover like that. It. Is. Sweet. And I digress. As usual). Anyhow, now I'm dying to read the next one, and rather ticked that my library is closed until December. So Not Cool. Anyhow, I'll have to suck it up and read something else in the interim, and day-dream about some hypothetical future date when I have $$ to go buy the books I want, whenever I want them. Anyhow, as for the book, I am fairly certain that Nick is one of the hotter characters I've read about in a while. Yum. The only problem I had with things is that I really couldn't see why the pixies hadn't shown up and taken Zara earlier--if he can get into her house whenever, what was stopping him? Whatever. It is something I could overlook. Overall, lots of fun!
