For a book that I randomly found on sale at B&N.com, I must say it exceeded any expectations I had for it. The writing style was great! It drew me in really quickly. The weird thing is that not THAT much actually happens in the book, but it was just fun to read. It was a nice break for me from the YA Contemporary I've been reading lately. (This is the kind of fantasy that I can get into. Not all the world is ending and zombies/diseased people/corrupt new societies are after me kind of stuff.... too depressing!)
The thing with Wendy and Hook kind of weirded me out a little bit. I mean I always pictured Hook as older and Wendy was 17 in this book (kind of icky)... not to mention it's HOOK for crying out loud, sworn enemy! But just because the book didn't go in the direction I wanted it to, it didn't ruin the story for me. (view spoiler) Spoiler: Also I was sort of sad that Neverland had to die and was made to seem like a selfish place. In my mind Neverland is the place you go to in your dreams, not a kidnapper. But even with that it still was a good ending. I think it was just great for an indie publishing author and I will definitely be reading the sequel!! This author, like Wendy herself, is a great storyteller!
