Series: Neverwood Chronicles #1
Genre: Fairytale, Romance, Young Adult
Wendy doesn’t remember anything about Neverland—or the experiments done on her there as a child. Seven years later, all she wants is a normal life, but shape-shifting shadows plague her dreams and turn her life into a waking nightmare. When the shadows attack at a football game and a boy disappears right in front of her, she realizes these wraith-like shadows are real. They’re not just haunting—they’re hunting.
A mysterious boy named Peter, his foul-mouthed sidekick, and a band of misfit boys intervene before Wendy faces a similar fate. But can they trust Wendy enough to take her to Neverwood Academy and reveal all of their hidden secrets when she’s hiding a secret of her own, or will the dreaded Red Skulls find her and drag her back to Neverland?
This is the first book in a new series written by Chanda Hahn and I absolutely freaking LOVED it!!
I knew that it wasn’t going to be a simple Peter Pan story because the synopsis was different and by different I mean…DIFFERENT! There were so many twists and curves to this book that sometimes I really did just have to say “Are you kidding me” out loud! If my husband didn’t already know what a book freak I am, he would probably think I was crazy (which I am anyway, but he adores me)!
Anyway, back to the book. I would say this book keeps you interested throughout and the cover beautifully matches the story, which is sometimes rare. Not always though, because I know that authors try their hardest to do a cover that relates to the story. I just LOVE well put together covers! So, this book leaves you wanting more IMMEDIATELY…but unfortunately the second book is not being released until 2017…so keep that in mind when you pick this one up, fair warning it will make your emotions go nuts!
