This story centers on Madge Darling, Wendy Darling’s grand-daughter. Madge wishes to escape her cold, tyrannical grandmother and find her mother. It just so happens Pan has been watching Madge for years and assists in her escape by whisking her off to Neverland. Madge is spunky, however she doesn’t come across as a strong character, and I kept having to remind myself she was only fourteen years-old. Pan’s transformation into a maniacal madman with powers of persuasion over the lost boys and the whole island of Neverland makes magical sense in the context of the story. As Madge begins to see the truth surrounding Pan and Neverland, she determines she has to confront Peter and try to set things right. But does she have the courage, strength, and cunning to pull it off?
The narrative is broken up with selections from Wendy’s diary entries from her time in Neverland, which paints a whole new picture of Wendy’s character. This gives the reader a better understanding of Wendy Darling’s later adult years as well. Flashbacks are used to fill-in other reimagined events and characters, such as Captain Hook and Tiger Lily. The twists in this reworking of the tale takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride you won’t soon forget. The end left me reeling and a little unnerved.
If you are into demented, twisted, reimagined fairy tales this may be a book you will enjoy.
FYI: There are a few F-bombs dropped and some gory battle scenes. This is not a child’s fairy tale. **Originally written for "BigAl’s Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy.** January 4, 2017

What a delightfully dark and wicked take on the Peter Pan story. It takes everything you thought you knew about Never Never Land and turns it upside down and inside out. The ending elicited from me a satisfied, twisted little chuckle, appealing well to my darker side, and I'll never look at Peter Pan quite the same again. This is a story that will live on in my mind for a long time to come. Kudos!
Warning: there is some gore, which never bothers me but if you're expecting a fairy tale, you should be forewarned. It's not gratuitous or over the top, but sensitive readers might be bothered.
Overall, a dark, disturbing, yet adroitly written, tale that may or may not have ruined my childhood and I will certainly be thinking of this book next time I'm at Disney World and waiting in line for Peter Pan's Flight.

It's like a fan fiction crossover, between Lord of the flies and Peter pan. I think one of the biggest things that kept bothering me with this is the ages of...Read more
I’m in love with the idea of this story. Just the fact that it pulls more from the original Peter Pan and not the Disney version makes me so incredibly happy.Read more
