Wendy Darling by Colleen Oakes

From the Best-Selling Author of Queen of Hearts comes a dark and mesmerizing twist on the beloved Children's Classic, Peter Pan.

Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller’s son. But while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children’s nursery and—dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers—they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning, to Neverland, a intoxicating island of feral freedom.

As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy’s paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from—and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her—have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare. @goodreads 



I never really liked Peter Pan, but this story is told through Wendy Darling's point of view and I like that, it makes the book different.

I liked the love she had for Booth and I would have liked to see how that played out, maybe in later books.

I still don't like Peter, I just can't help it. He is so nice to Wendy at first of course, but then he turns mean when she can't really love him.

I also love Tink, that is a given.

This book has love in it, some gruesome endings for some nice kids and Captain Hook :)

I want to read book two because of the ending of this one and I want to see where the author is going to go with the next one.

I think all Peter Pan fans would like this book!

*I would like to thank NETGALLEY and SPARKPRESS for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.
