"All children, except one, grow up."
~J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
No one knows this better than I do—but I also understand the awful truth. Neverland is a wondrous island of adventure, full of cannibals and crocodiles, fairies and fiends, pirates and peril. Or is it? There, children are free to frolic forever...
Until forever ends.
Neverland is a lovely lie, a seductive fantasy that cloaks sinister secrets. The children Peter Pan abducts aren't allowed to grow up. They're murdered or meet a grimmer fate before they have the chance.
I'm the child who escaped Peter's treachery. I've made it my life's calling to rescue the Lost Boys, even those who don't wish to be saved. But now Pan has a schooner he's using to steal even more children. I'm the only one who can stop him.
Call me Hook. I am the master and commander of a pirate ship, and I'll have my revenge on Peter Pan if it's the last thing I do.
A fascinating retelling of a classic tale!
A pirate’s view of Neverland - it is unique, shedding light on Peter Pan’s escapades. Rescues filled with feats of derring-do show the audacity of Captain Hook. She’s bold, determined, and has a softer heart than you might imagine for a pirate. Her crew is a fascinating mix of odd characters that you’ll love getting to know. The author has a lyrical way of weaving words together that brings each scene to living color.
