This retelling of Peter Pan and it’s such an interesting dark take on the story. Like an Edge of Tomorrow type situation for everyone involved but for extra fun they would lose certain memories.
This book is told through dual timelines from now in London where a grown up Wendy and elderly James (Hook) live but also something dark has been unleashed.
And the other timeline is 22 years before when Wendy did some stuff and destroyed some stuff and dropped the mic and ran with her.
This book had a lot of themes in it like survivors guilt, drug abuse, PTSD and others that flowed throughout.
Plus there’s a LGBTQ storyline that I’m here for!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
A dark, gorgeous reimagining about what happened to Captain Hook after Neverland from the bestselling author of Wendy, Darling – filled with eerie suspense and heart-breaking anguish
Once invited, always welcome.
Once invited, never free.
Captain James Hook, the immortal pirate of Neverland, has died a thousand times. Drowned, stabbed by Peter Pan’s sword, eaten by the beast swimming below the depths, yet James was resurrected every time by one boy’s dark imagination. Until he found a door in the sky, an escape. And he took the chance no matter the cost.
Now in London twenty-two years later, Peter Pan’s monster has found Captain Hook again, intent on revenge. But a chance encounter leads James to another survivor of Neverland. Wendy Darling, now a grown woman, is the only one who knows how dark a shadow Neverland casts, no matter how far you run. To vanquish Pan’s monster once and for all, Hook must play the villain one last time…
Exploring themes of grief, survivor’s guilt and healing broken bonds, Hooked is a modern-day Peter Pan story, perfect for fans of retellings, Christina Henry and V.E. Schwab.
