Review of WENDY DARLING: SEAS by Colleen Oakes

***Available NOW***

Ready to have everything you thought you knew about Peter Pan and Captain Hook turned upside down? The second volume of Author Colleen Oakes’ WENDY DARLING series, SEAS, will do just that! Absolutely incredible story that will leave readers guessing and wanting more. I absolutely adored the first book and had a hard time imagining SEAS topping it. I was horribly wrong. This book was even better than the first. Full of adventure, danger, tears, and pulse pounding action! Readers will be drawn into Wendy’s struggle to survive Neverland. She is well written and the book moves along briskly as the story unfolds. Readers will be feverishly turning pages to see what happens next. I can’t recommend this series highly enough!


From the author of Queen of Hearts comes the much anticipated sequel to Wendy Darling.

Wendy Darling: Seas finds Wendy and Michael aboard the dreaded Sudden Night, a dangerous behemoth sailed by the infamous Captain Hook and his blood-thirsty crew. In this exotic world of mermaids, spies and pirate-feuds, Wendy finds herself struggling to keep her family above the waves. Hunted by the twisted boy who once stole her heart and struggling to survive in the whimsical Neverland sea, returning home to London now seems like a distant dream—and the betrayals have just begun.

Will Wendy find shelter with Peter’s greatest enemy, or is she a pawn in a much darker game, one that could forever alter not only her family’s future, but also the soul of Neverland itself?

Review of WENDY DARLING by Colleen Oakes

****Coming October 13th, 2015****
Incredible retelling of PETER PAN! Absolutely fell in love with this book. Told from Wendy’s point of view, it gives you a different way of looking at Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. A darker, twisted take on a beloved children’s book. Definitely not the story you grew up hearing! It draws you in and keeps you anxiously turning the pages to find out what happens next! You won’t want to miss this first book of a new series. Definitely recommend! 



Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller’s son. But one night, while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children’s nursery, and—dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers—they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning into Neverland, an intoxicating island of freedom.
As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy’s paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from—and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her, have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare.
