Hooked: Neverland will never let go…

We rated this book:


Neverland is part of his past. James left his colorful moniker of Hook behind him when he traded life as a pirate for solitude in London. Despite the years that have passed, the ghosts of Neverland have found him, which reunites him with Wendy Darling – who is also running from memories of the past. James and Wendy work together to hunt down a monster lurking on the streets of London, determined to put a stop to it even if it means returning to the very place they left behind.

Haunting and poetic imagery captures an emotional, original, and breathtaking perspective that will forever alter how you view the famous pirate Captain Hook. Exploring the man behind the pirate, Wise takes you into the London of the past, which serves as a poignant and heartbreaking background plagued by the chilling presence of Neverland that haunts James, Wendy, and Jane. The eerie memories of the past provide a haunting tone for James’ internal struggle of Hook versus James, a tragic love story, and a strained mother-daughter relationship.

An emotional and feminist approach to a classic tale, Hooked is told through the captivating perspective of Captain Hook with lush visuals that will resonate long after finishing the book.
