Neverland EvermoreNeverland Evermore by Sarah J. Pepper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Neverland Evermore is a quick read. A dark fantasy, this is a Peter Pan tale for grown-ups. It takes the characters we all know so well and tips them upside down. The book opens with a mutiny on the Jolly Roger, egged on by Peter. The pirates want Bell to grant them immortality and to return to Neverland. But Bell refuses, because the real Neverland is an evil place and a collector of lost souls.

In a fearful skirmish Bell is stripped of most of her magical powers, the Captain’s hand is cut off and Bell fears her beloved Captain has been sent below the seas to Davy Jones’ Locker. With her love lost, her life under threat and her future bleak, Bell must travel to hell and back in the first book of this new series.

This is a clever idea for a new twist on a popular story. The use of differing POV chapters and time-slips between present day and earlier action scenes make this a fast paced and intricate read. There were enough familiar characters and common dialogue for those who’ve read the original book or seen the film adaptions to nod along knowingly, yet they can also enjoy this new darker take.

This week I’m reading an ARC of Neverland Evermore by S.J Pepper ready for it’s release shortly.

First line of the book.

Captain James – Present Day. Nothing was a important as memorizing her face.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Neverland has a way of breaking people. It corrupts souls. It destroys hope. The evil festering inside it brings out the darkness in our hearts and leaves us worse than dead. No good has ever come from it. Ever.

It is where I was born.

Therefore, darkness is all I know. Corruption is in my bones. So when I see him, I mean to win his heart and then break him. I mean to lure him to my arms and then destroy him. But it is his intentions and his wicked smile that deter me…at least until a lost soul from my past catches up with us.

My world ignites into flames. My love’s sinks to the depths of the sea. We are from two different worlds that overlap for a brief moment in time. But it is that moment which carries me forward. It is that moment in which he lives in the past. It is that moment in which I embrace my true nature and seek vengeance against those responsible for feeding his hand to that godforsaken crocodile.

Introduce the main character using only three words. Bell: Dangerous, vulnerable, brave.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).
