A childhood favorite…with a dark, savage twist
Without spoiling, but giving enough to get you wanting more, when you first dive into this book you feel uneasy, in a good way. The book splits the story of Pan and Hook until they eventually find their fates tangled into a mess of blood, magic, and revenge.
It starts with the same way any Pan story would start, the heroic boy king going off to rescue young children in need, flying them away to Neverland to live and play forever young. But there is something off about Peter. There’s a cunning and sinister nature about him and his actions that make you wonder what is really going on in Neverland, until your fears and feelings about him are realized. Peter is a monster, in all the best ways. He has everything a good villain needs to portray; cunning, unpredictability, power, and reason but still shows off the child heart he has while still being bloodthirsty and wrathful at the flip of a switch.
Hook’s story, on the other hand, tells of a young upstart pirate trying to make a name for himself and his crew. Hook is shown to be a caring man, well skilled, and ambitious in his endeavors to be one of the most feared pirates in the seven seas. You follow his crew getting into trouble in an effort to make waves among the British navy and pirate world, until things go south and he and his crew are face to face with death, and an encounter and lifelong battle with Peter and his legion that will make you change the way you think of the classic fairy tale forever.
For the TLDR this story has everything a fantasy fan would want, from tie-in’s to familiar folklore like mermaids, elves, and voodoo, to some other legends like King Arthur, Dracula, and more. There is action, betrayal, magic, and wit. Absolutely worth the read and hope you enjoy it as much as I am!
