I actually enjoyed this book because I didn't need the full background on the story. I know Neverland, and I love it. It is the place that people go if they want to fly and be happy. There is Pan, Hook, and a somewhat representation of Wendy. Except for the fact that her name isn't Wendy. It's Remy.
She is naive, ridiculous, and flat out annoying. But you kind of warm up to her in the near end because she is our heroine and well you kind of have to start liking her. My favorite in this character is Nicholas Grey because he is the ultimate boy that you have to fall in love with but there were favorites throughout. I felt more in common with the antagonists than the protagonists... I think there is a problem there if I do.
Every book has their downfall and this one had plenty which s why I do have to rate this a 3 out of 5 stars. It isn't completely awesome nor awful, just somewhere in the middle. I felt that some of the characters were under developed and other over developed. I can never be happy in that sense but what am I to do.
Heather C. Myers was a new author to me but I do not think that I will continue the series due to the disappointment that still radiated from this book.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The storyline is average but overall, it was a good read.and an interesting twist on the classic Peter Pan tale. I enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author including more in this series.
If these things had been corrected I could have enjoyed this book more, but I found these errors frustrating and quite annoying. Interesting story line, though, I'll be interested to see where it goes.
At first you assume the ship’s captain to be either Hook or Peter Pan, after all it’s a book about Neverland. And one would also think that Remy would be Wendy, but she isn’t. But that isn’t the case at all because the ship Remy finds herself on is captained by Nick.
As the story unfolds we find out that Remy has been there before, as she’s faced death and escaped. She’s the only one to escape deaths clutches and this has act has caught the eye of Nick and the magistrate and Nick is told to keep an eye on Remy. He does so and ends up saving her, which is how she ends up on the ship in the first place. Here you meet his crew, which at first seem like your average pirate crew, but then you learn more about them and grow to love each character and actually wish they weren’t in the situation that they are in.
Then there’s Hook. Now one of my favorite characters in the original tellings of Peter Pan is Hook. I don’t know why but I really like Hook, and that goes the same for Death in Neverland. He’s created to be a handsome, yet deadly character and he knows it. He’ll do what he can to get what he wants. And he just makes you quake at the knees when you read him. He really fits the original Hook persona and I think that is amazing. Pan on the other hand doesn’t really fit his persona in this tale. In the original Pan was a good guy, here Pan is far from good. And he’s not adventurous and fun-loving, he’s power hungry.
But as the story progresses you see that something slowly builds between Remy and Nick. Though I can’t say for certain what that is. Could just be a captain and crew bond, or it could be more than that. But what Remy does in the end makes me think it’s so much more because she makes a sacrifice that most wouldn’t do for someone they consider to be their boss.
And I’ll say I’m not satisfied with how it ended. I wanted it to end with Remy running into the arms of Nick and kissing him, but that doesn’t happen. I wanted them to confess a love for one another and sail away in the end to find Pan and end his reign of terror.
But there’s still more to the trilogy so it could still happen and I have hope that Remy and Nick will have their happily Neverland after.
