Series: Neverland #1
January 22, 2019
I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
When Gina Maxwell posted about her upcoming novel, Pan, I instantly knew I had to get my hands on it! I am a total sucker for all the old disney fairy tales. I love when authors take the classics and remake them into something completely new and amazing! I always have to read them when I find them, and honestly, some have turned out to be total disappointments.
Gina’s idea to take on the world of Neverland and give Peter Pan and all the lost boys their own happily ever afters was a huge risk – but let me tell you – she knocked Pan out of the park and I CANNOT WAIT for Hook and Tink!
I was immediately captivated and did not want to put it down! I made myself take breaks to run errands and do things with my kiddos so that I could purposely extend my stay in Neverland. I never wanted to leave!
Peter and Wendy were absolutely amazing! Not only do we get the story of them as adults reconnecting now that Wendy has returned, but Gina also takes us back to when they were kids and we get to be with them when they discovered the magic they had between them.
When you start reading Pan (and you totally need to!) you are not only drawn into Peter and Wendy but she also immediately draws you into all of the other Neverland characters. While we are on Peter and Wendy’s journey to their happily ever after, we also get a peek into who the next couple of books will be about.
Gina kept all the original key elements that made up the classic disney version of the story, Peter Pan, while making them completely relevant and believable as a romance story in today’s world. She really exceeded my expectations and just honestly blew my socks off!
I can already tell you Pan will be one of my favorites for 2019!
