Summary of the Book:

Wendy Darling worked her entire life to rise through the ranks of the prestigious Londonierre Brigade. Now as a Captain, she has everything she’s always wanted, including a ship and crew of her own. But when the Brigade receives a strange transmission from the legendary James Hooke, lost a hundred years earlier in uncharted space and presumed dead, Wendy is willing to risk it all to rescue her hero. She races to the planet known only as Neverland; her mission to find the long-lost crew and bring them home.

But there is more to Neverland than meets the eye, and more to Hooke than what was written in history books. When Wendy crash lands on the ominous planet, she quickly discovers Neverland’s dark secret; a malevolent being known as The Shadow that’s looking for a host body to escape its eternal prison. To fulfill her mission, Wendy must decide whether to trust the dashing Hooke or the mysterious Fleet mechanic who goes by the name of Pan–and she has to decide quickly…

Before the darkness consumes them all.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to say this was one of the better retelling of Neverland. The blurb for this book is what drew me in. The think that set this retelling apart is that it is a sci-fi in space version. Wendy is the captain of her own ship and she is going to go on an adventure to find her hero. So she goes to the planet known as Neverland. There were some times that made me rethink the story I knew from my childhood. I had a different look on Hooke, Pan and Tinc as well. It was a fun adventure.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
