Neverland has always been their sanctuary—until now.
Magic is dying in Neverland–and so are the pixies. Only one is brave enough to search the human world for someone to believe. Tink finds a desolate boy flying in the night, peering in windows, searching for the life he once knew. But can she convince him to abandon his quest and save Neverland?
The premise for this book seemed so good. The execution was not as good. The story felt a little flat and not what I expected when reading the blurb. It is a sort of origin story but it wasn’t the type of story I was looking for.
I do know that Peter Pan as a character can get very dark, and I actually enjoy stories where he is the bad guy instead of the immature good guy he is in the Disney version. However, this version of Peter just felt wrong.
There were some good moments, but overall this book just failed to tell a good story. Having Tink being the main character and the teller of the story was nice but it wasn’t enough. The plot was just… meh. I suppose it was a build up for the rest of the books but you can still write a good story. This just wasn’t a good story for me.
Do I recommend it?
