I was also completely down for a bad ass version of Wendy. Sword fighting and shit. Count me in bitches.

Now that I have said something about my love for this character.. Back to Wendy, ugh, such a bad ass. She has some serious goals, like being a captain of her own ship.

Unfortunately for her, she's living in a man's world and they don't see that ever happening. Bring it on. Other than all of that, I liked getting to see a different side of Peter Pan and Hook.

It was intriguin enough that I kind of wish I owned this book. I give the writing experience on this one 5 stars.

SUPER fun to write. The characters did an excellent job of communicating with us, which is always a plus. I expected the historical research to be tedious, but boy do those Brits have some organized websites.

Top notch museums and historical centers. The dogs could have gotten along better, and the innisfay made a mess of the yard on more than one occasion, but these were minor issues compared to the overall positive experience of writing thi I give the writing experience on this one 5 stars.

The dogs could have gotten along better, and the innisfay made a mess of the yard on more than one occasion, but these were minor issues compared to the overall positive experience of writing this book.

I can't wait to write the next one! This was great! I loved the way the authors did this, with Wendy being an orphan and making her way up in a world that expected women to be silent baby makers.

Wendy is a strong character but she is a bit of a Mary Sue, and has far too many potential love interests which is why I only gave it 4 stars.

But I loved the way they portrayed Peter and the boys as everlost, and the Fae aspect they added to it. I thought that was really cool.

I also liked the way they incorporated Captain Hook and the who This was great! I also liked the way they incorporated Captain Hook and the whole navy aspect.

I also though it was neat how they snuck little tidbits from the classic story and maybe some Disney stuff too? Happy New Year, all!

I'm hoping to start the New Year off right with blogging some more. I know I get wrapped up in work or watching Rick and Morty So I'm making it a priority.

Let's hear it for !! I read this awesome book, The Wendy , awhile ago. As they didn't plan to release the book until today, I had to keep it to myself and it was hard!!

I finally get to share the cover with y Happy New Year, all! I finally get to share the cover with you Let me share with you the cover of The Wendy!

Doesn't that just take your breath away? It did when I saw it, for sure. Same people that wrote The Intuitives that I raved about. Here's my little blurb on my Hardcover copy: I am honored to be a part of this book's journey.

I have a lot of faith in this book and I hope to see it in bookstores. I do love this book and I cannot wait for the sequel.

Let me share with you the blurb Girls take care of babies! Wendy Darling is an orphan, living in an overcrowded almshouse, ridiculed for believing in a future she can never have.

More than anything in the world, she wants to be the captain of a ship. Sounds good, right? Who doesn't love a Peter Pan retelling? The Wendy is a YA historical fiction slash fantasy novel that had me glued to the pages.

Just when it starts getting really good, you are left at the precipice, dying to know what happens next. I'm a big champion of this book and the authors, and I definitely give it five stars easily.

I'm not writing this in my typical review style because the blurb pretty much explains the story better than I could. I am however going to give you an excerpt of the book so you can see for yourselves!

Chapter 1 By the year , London was bursting at the seams. Almost a million people had been stuffed into every nook and cranny, and a good number of these had no idea where they had come from.

Nestled in baskets and swaddled in rags, they had appeared overnight on the doorsteps of almshouses all over the city. Staring wide-eyed at mystified caretakers, demanding explanations.

But there were none to be had. This was why Wendy Darling believed in magic. It was the only thing that made sense. Opinions, however, were divided on the subject.

They come from mothers. He was different from the other children because he had arrived with a note. Mortimer knew he had a mother.

She was also seven, but she was very logical. Wendy Darling is my real name! Healey, the caretaker, was fond of the name Wendy and thought her a darling child.

Wendy, darling, fetch me the pitcher, please, she would say. Or, Wendy, darling, where has little Charlie run off to?

Wendy secretly thought Mortimer might have a point. That usually ended the matter, at least until she was ten. The disaster struck at Bartholomew Fair, in September of The almshouse barely took in enough money to feed everyone, let alone send the children off to fairs.

But there was a particular lord in London who loved fairs more than anything, and Bartholomew Fair most of all, with its acrobatics and its puppet shows and its exotic beasts smelling of faraway places.

Of desert spices and fever dreams. Unfortunately, a lot of drinking went on there too, and he was a public figure. He had to keep up appearances. He would arrive at dawn on the appointed day in September with a handful of carriages, each drawn by two fine horses, and the children would all line up behind Mrs.

Healey—arranged alphabetically so she could keep proper track of them. Healey would bark, ticking the children off on her fingers.

As each name was pronounced, she would tap the corresponding child lightly on the head, and he or she would be off like a shot, tumbling into a carriage.

They laughed and screamed and piled on top of each other to fit in. All but Wendy, who was always last in line, terrified that this time they would run out of room after Valentine and she would be left behind.

Healey finally pronounced. Wendy raced to the first carriage, but Mortimer Black stuck his head out the window before she even got to the door.

But then Charlie, to whom one of those heads belonged, called out to her from the fourth carriage. If we squeeze a little more.

I hate to ask it. I can see you have a full load already. But I would very much like to go to the fair too, if you think you could manage it.

They puffed out their chests and held their heads high, each nodding just once against the bit. Only then did she run to the door and clamber on top of the pile.

You can tell by the excerpt that Wendy is special and different, and I rooted for her the whole book. I guarantee you will enjoy this book!

So here are some links and all the info now that it's out and available! Doesn't this sound awesome? I provided the links so there's no excuse not to check it out!

More reviews coming your way, and I'll be doing a Goodreads wrap-up post, which will remind me how awful I did this last year as a reader!

Tell me! And I'll be catching up with your blogs, too! New Year's Resolutions, bitches! Mar 31, Margaret Robbins rated it it was amazing.

Wendy is a sixteen-year-old sassy, smart, and strong sixteen-year-old young woman in the late s in England in this version of the story.

She wants to be a sea captain, but she's told that as a woman, this route is not an option for her. So she does the next best thing In her new position, she meets Peter Pan himself and has to report to the revered Captain Hook.

Over time, Wendy realizes that the line between good guys and bad guys isn't always black and white and that Peter Pan might be more complex than the criminal that Hook makes him out to be.

For anyone who loves fairy tale retellings and YA fantasy book, especially with empowered female protagonists, I would highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next installment.

Jan 10, Rae rated it it was amazing. I'm a fan! This is a fantastic, smart, and beautiful take on characters everyone can connect with. The writing is skillfully done to bring you into the setting.

The action and danger is stressful, but balanced with lightness and humor. Peter Pan is exactly who you think he is.

And the twists the Dragon Authors add to a classic story are crazy and perfect. It's a great bedtime story, for all ages.

All the thumbs up. I've always been a fan of the old children's stories and adventure novels : The W I'm a fan! I love to go back and reread my favorites.

But as great as they are, it's often frustrating for me to have so many books on my shelf written by men, with male protagonists, steeped in outdated and trite social concepts.

I love Barsoom, but I wanted just one book with a hero that looked like me. Happily, there's a whole swathe of retold tales available now.

I'm always up for an interesting twist on my favorite characters. But if you're on the fence about The Wendy , take it from a fan of kid's books and reboots: this book stands out.

It's more than Peter Pan, retold; it's its own story -fully realized. It's a sweet blend of timeless characters and new ideas; dramatic tension and a steady touch of humor.

And at the core, the heart of the story, is a message that anyone would be privileged to impart to a young audience.

I won't ruin it for you. Go, become a fan. Sep 01, Fernanda Granzotto rated it really liked it. I loved it how the writing makes it very clear that they are British,I was very good at reading correctly and listening to the accents well.

One thing I didn't like is how often I had it the same thing is explained in 3 several pages consecutively and how most men treated women even though I know it's from the time the book is going on it still made me very angry, something else that pissed me off in certain parts was how almost every man Wendy has some kind of relationship with is somehow in love with her.

Taking this, this is a book that brings another completely new version of the story we already know but still brings the main elements we love, is a book that also touches a lot on the role of women in society and how they are treated just because they are women.

It is a quick book to read because you get so involved in the story. I highly recommend it if you like the Peter Pan story, be it the book or the movies and can't wait to read the next book!

Jan 13, Steff Pasciuti rated it it was amazing Shelves: retelling-central , rereads , in-love , feels , arcs , best , ya , , made-me-laugh , cover-gems.

So let us pause for a moment to do just that. As an avid lover of Peter Pan and all things involved in his beautiful world, it is exceedingly rare that I find adaptations that irrevocably rearrange my feelings for it.

At the risk of stating something potentially blasphemous, it has become necessary for me to admit I have come to the conclusion that The Wendy , by Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown, surpasses them all.

I was excited to read The Wendy from the very moment it fell under my radar a mere nine days ago. Quickly, I decided it was the one book from that I knew I needed to read.

I've read numerous retellings relating in one way or another to Peter and the characters surrounding him in the past. I have fallen in love with reiteration after reiteration from the time I was four years old, devouring all I could about the realm of Neverland and the boy, Peter, who managed to inspire in me a feeling little else has.

I've critiqued and judged and enjoyed and recommended rather a large number of them. The Wendy , by far, is my favorite and it is all due to Wendy, herself.

Our heroine begins her story, a young girl of ten, with a dream. In a world where women are looked down upon and shoved into the cookie cutter expectations of their gender by men who could not possibly even begin to understand the sheer strength and character a woman has, Wendy Darling perseveres.

The degree of respect Wendy both earns and demands as she develops throughout the course of the novel is truly inspiring. She shows strength, wit, determination, and a fight that never once leaves her.

At every turn she takes her society's preconceived opinion of her and makes every effort to prove her worth. There is no question in my mind to the fact that Wendy outshines every other character in this novel.

And the best thing about this fact is that the other characters are exceptional. They are weaved into the story amazingly with the perfect mix of originality and similarity, paying homage to Barrie's characters in the best way possible.

I both felt that I knew the characters and was getting to know them better, something that has admittedly occasionally been lacking in some retellings.

The introduction of each character is done brilliantly and I found myself adoring them all. From the perfectly captured persona of Peter himself, to the endearingly villainous James Hook whom I simply love to hate, and even further to John, Michael, and Nana whom were all so perfect I wasn't even aware that I needed to read their characters this way until I did.

Each character felt real and full of depth, even and especially those who weren't even a part of the original tale.

And it is here I must admit my love for Olaudah Equiano or Gustavo's Vassa and implore everyone who reads this book to read the Acknowledgements once they've reached the end of this chapter in Wendy Darling's tale.

Not only is it enlightening, but it is additionally heart warming and endearingly respectable on the part of the authors. I was thoroughly pleased and excited about it as it's not every day that an author manages to blend a character like this so well into a world of fiction.

As a final homage to the characters, hilariously Wendy's eyebrow becomes a character all on it's own, speaking to those around her with an air of force and authority a great many people never have in their lives.

Admittedly, this was quite a new and regularly reoccurring persona throughout the novel, intriguing in its originality, so my advice is: expect it, embrace it, love it.

And beneath all of these beautifully developed and amazing characters is a plot more engaging than most and impressive, to boot.

Of course, anyone who knows the tale of Peter Pan would expect that they know where the story is headed at one point or another and I am pleased to report that Sky and Brown keep readers on their toes in the most exciting of ways.

Wendy thrives in the events of her story, making decisions most unexpected and impressive. I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Perhaps the most and really only disappointing thing about having the pleasure to read such an amazing novel both in general and especially prior to its official publication date is the fact that the wait I shall have to suffer through for the next chapter of the story already feels painfully long.

I imagine I shall end up rereading The Wendy at least twice more before the year is up. Its message is a strong and important one. We need to know not to give up on our dreams, to persevere in spite of what the world tells us we are not capable of.

And behind wonderful storytelling, characterization, and whimsical notes The Wendy encourages us to do precisely that. So, now that I have thoroughly expressed my adoration for what is sure to be the best novel I read all year, my end request is that everyone immediately go procure a copy for themselves.

The Wendy is officially available on January 16th, and believe me, it is well worth the read. I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In fact, from the moment I stumbled upon The Intuitives, I was curious and in need of more. It sounded like such an interesting read, something I would really enjoy.

Instead of reading The Intuitives, though, I did my usual trick. Instead of picking up the book to have left me curious about the authors, I picked up a different book instead.

Thus began my foray into The Wendy. I love a good Peter Pan retelling and was instantly lured in by the possibilities offered by The Wendy — especially when I realised The Wendy is just the first book in The Tales of the Wendy series.

A whole series based around a Peter Pan retelling? Of course, I was more than willing. It was an interesting retelling, offering something different.

It had all the characters you would hope to see in a retelling. It offered up a lot for the future of the series. It had some nice messages.

However, it failed to satisfy me in the way I had hoped for. You see, while the book had lots of nice things for us to learn about, I feel as though nothing really happened.

I kept waiting for that big moment, yet it never came. For me, I simply wanted a bit more action in a Peter Pan retelling. The Wendy was fun and original, but it was not a story that had me on the edge of my seat.

Jan 06, Cassie C rated it really liked it Shelves: arcs. Review to come! The Wendy is an absolutely fantastic novel that truly sweeps you off your feet!

You immediately are sucked into the story Peter Pan retellings have been very hit or miss for me, and I am happy to report that this book is truly a winner.

It is unique and a fun twist on the original story, while still having all of the classic elements. To be completely honest, reading this book felt like I was reading a classic novel which isn't a bad thing at all!

The authors crafted a fun setting but also extraordinary characters. The took the original versions of these characters, expanded upon their personalities that we see in the original story, but still made them uniquely their own.

All of the characters had the same quirks that we love, but they also have some new personality traits that will make you fall in love with them more.

Wendy is such a strong, fierce female lead and I loved her representation. Hook is still sinister as ever, but we see a different side to him that is unexpected.

I loved how the authors dealt with the subject of gender and women being seen as inferior in the time period. The story is an inspirational one at its heart as we go on a journey with Wendy to overcome the obstacles thrown in her path.

I can't wait until the next book comes out and where the story goes. I highly recommend checking this book out if you like fun retellings and are a fan of Peter Pan.

You won't regret reading this hidden gem! Happy reading Jan 15, Angela Basilio rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , reviewed , own. I received an early copy of this book and in no way, does this affect or influence my review.

I am so happy to have read this book before its release date. This also happens to be my very first review and the first book I have read from author Erin Michelle Sky.

I knew right away I had to get my hands on it! I mean hello, the Disney movie was so good that I have watched it at least a thousand times.

So let me get right to it. Except for a couple of changes here and there. Oh no, you see this retelling of Peter Pan is vastly different and original, yet oh the same.

I say the same because the Peter Pan cast of characters remains the same except for a couple of new characters. The twists and turns I experienced in this phenomenal story, all the wonderful and scary emotions I had to undergo until I got to the very end, had me falling out of my seat by the time I was done with it.

The characters, the plot, the ending and the book itself, are all worth it! Thank you so much Erin, for writing a fantastic story. I absolutely loved this book and the sequel!

Dec 29, Errin Krystal rated it it was amazing. The Wendy is a fantastic retelling of J. No, their place is in the home, raising children and tending to their husbands, right?

Well, Wendy is just not willing to sit back and accept her fate. This is definitely Peter Pan as you have never seen it before.

Wendy is a diviner with the British Home Office and Clandestine Services, recruited to sense magic that no one really believes in.

Peter Pan the leader of the everlost, with feathered wings and fearsome fangs and Hook is a young dashing sea captain with a mane of luscious locks, though his rivalry with Pan remains intact.

In a world that is full of misogyny, Wendy Darling is a total bad-ass. Never once in her life has she allowed the narrow-mindedness of her times get in the way of what she wants.

She learns how to navigate the stars, the mathematics and science involved in sailing a ship and becomes a more adept marksmen and swordsmen than most men in her platoon.

She is smart, determined and I just love her to pieces, solving her problems with her cutting intellect. When she is told to stay behind during the everlost raid, she refuses and dashes into the fray sword in hand and takes on Peter Pan himself.

I absolutely love this whole encounter, it would have to be one of my favorite scenes. He wrongfully thinks she incapable because she is a woman, but the tables are soon turned and there and then he comes to respect her.

I love it! Next to Wendy, Peter is my absolute favorite. There is an underlying flirtation between the two which I am absolutely ga ga for! Wendy definitely does not need rescuing.

She can rescue herself thank you very much. Yes, Tink is there too! This scenario leads into what has to be my favorite line in the entire book.

The writing is witty and clever and very reminiscent of some of the classic novels I have read in the past. There were so many parts where I was just outright grinning as I read.

I especially enjoyed watching Wendy match wits and intellect with the illustrious Captain James Hook is everything I never knew I needed.

When the book came to a close, I was left feeling hopeful and excited. Apr 12, C. Ogilvie rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult , humor , strong-female-leads , fairy-tale-retellings.

They laughed and screamed and piled on top of each other to fit in. All but Wendy, who was always last in line, terrified that this time they would run out of room after Valentine and she would be left behind.

Healey finally pronounced. Wendy raced to the first carriage, but Mortimer Black stuck his head out the window before she even got to the door.

But then Charlie, to whom one of those heads belonged, called out to her from the fourth carriage. If we squeeze a little more. I hate to ask it. I can see you have a full load already.

But I would very much like to go to the fair too, if you think you could manage it. They puffed out their chests and held their heads high, each nodding just once against the bit.

Only then did she run to the door and clamber on top of the pile. You can tell by the excerpt that Wendy is special and different, and I rooted for her the whole book.

I guarantee you will enjoy this book! So here are some links and all the info now that it's out and available! Doesn't this sound awesome?

I provided the links so there's no excuse not to check it out! More reviews coming your way, and I'll be doing a Goodreads wrap-up post, which will remind me how awful I did this last year as a reader!

Tell me! And I'll be catching up with your blogs, too! New Year's Resolutions, bitches! Mar 31, Margaret Robbins rated it it was amazing.

Wendy is a sixteen-year-old sassy, smart, and strong sixteen-year-old young woman in the late s in England in this version of the story. She wants to be a sea captain, but she's told that as a woman, this route is not an option for her.

So she does the next best thing In her new position, she meets Peter Pan himself and has to report to the revered Captain Hook.

Over time, Wendy realizes that the line between good guys and bad guys isn't always black and white and that Peter Pan might be more complex than the criminal that Hook makes him out to be.

For anyone who loves fairy tale retellings and YA fantasy book, especially with empowered female protagonists, I would highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next installment.

Jan 10, Rae rated it it was amazing. I'm a fan! This is a fantastic, smart, and beautiful take on characters everyone can connect with.

The writing is skillfully done to bring you into the setting. The action and danger is stressful, but balanced with lightness and humor.

Peter Pan is exactly who you think he is. And the twists the Dragon Authors add to a classic story are crazy and perfect. It's a great bedtime story, for all ages.

All the thumbs up. I've always been a fan of the old children's stories and adventure novels : The W I'm a fan!

I love to go back and reread my favorites. But as great as they are, it's often frustrating for me to have so many books on my shelf written by men, with male protagonists, steeped in outdated and trite social concepts.

I love Barsoom, but I wanted just one book with a hero that looked like me. Happily, there's a whole swathe of retold tales available now.

I'm always up for an interesting twist on my favorite characters. But if you're on the fence about The Wendy , take it from a fan of kid's books and reboots: this book stands out.

It's more than Peter Pan, retold; it's its own story -fully realized. It's a sweet blend of timeless characters and new ideas; dramatic tension and a steady touch of humor.

And at the core, the heart of the story, is a message that anyone would be privileged to impart to a young audience. I won't ruin it for you.

Go, become a fan. Sep 01, Fernanda Granzotto rated it really liked it. I loved it how the writing makes it very clear that they are British,I was very good at reading correctly and listening to the accents well.

One thing I didn't like is how often I had it the same thing is explained in 3 several pages consecutively and how most men treated women even though I know it's from the time the book is going on it still made me very angry, something else that pissed me off in certain parts was how almost every man Wendy has some kind of relationship with is somehow in love with her.

Taking this, this is a book that brings another completely new version of the story we already know but still brings the main elements we love, is a book that also touches a lot on the role of women in society and how they are treated just because they are women.

It is a quick book to read because you get so involved in the story. I highly recommend it if you like the Peter Pan story, be it the book or the movies and can't wait to read the next book!

So let us pause for a moment to do just that. As an avid lover of Peter Pan and all things involved in his beautiful world, it is exceedingly rare that I find adaptations that irrevocably rearrange my feelings for it.

At the risk of stating something potentially blasphemous, it has become necessary for me to admit I have come to the conclusion that The Wendy , by Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown, surpasses them all.

I was excited to read The Wendy from the very moment it fell under my radar a mere nine days ago. Quickly, I decided it was the one book from that I knew I needed to read.

I've read numerous retellings relating in one way or another to Peter and the characters surrounding him in the past. I have fallen in love with reiteration after reiteration from the time I was four years old, devouring all I could about the realm of Neverland and the boy, Peter, who managed to inspire in me a feeling little else has.

I've critiqued and judged and enjoyed and recommended rather a large number of them. The Wendy , by far, is my favorite and it is all due to Wendy, herself.

Our heroine begins her story, a young girl of ten, with a dream. In a world where women are looked down upon and shoved into the cookie cutter expectations of their gender by men who could not possibly even begin to understand the sheer strength and character a woman has, Wendy Darling perseveres.

The degree of respect Wendy both earns and demands as she develops throughout the course of the novel is truly inspiring. She shows strength, wit, determination, and a fight that never once leaves her.

At every turn she takes her society's preconceived opinion of her and makes every effort to prove her worth.

There is no question in my mind to the fact that Wendy outshines every other character in this novel. And the best thing about this fact is that the other characters are exceptional.

They are weaved into the story amazingly with the perfect mix of originality and similarity, paying homage to Barrie's characters in the best way possible.

I both felt that I knew the characters and was getting to know them better, something that has admittedly occasionally been lacking in some retellings.

The introduction of each character is done brilliantly and I found myself adoring them all. From the perfectly captured persona of Peter himself, to the endearingly villainous James Hook whom I simply love to hate, and even further to John, Michael, and Nana whom were all so perfect I wasn't even aware that I needed to read their characters this way until I did.

Each character felt real and full of depth, even and especially those who weren't even a part of the original tale.

And it is here I must admit my love for Olaudah Equiano or Gustavo's Vassa and implore everyone who reads this book to read the Acknowledgements once they've reached the end of this chapter in Wendy Darling's tale.

Not only is it enlightening, but it is additionally heart warming and endearingly respectable on the part of the authors.

I was thoroughly pleased and excited about it as it's not every day that an author manages to blend a character like this so well into a world of fiction.

As a final homage to the characters, hilariously Wendy's eyebrow becomes a character all on it's own, speaking to those around her with an air of force and authority a great many people never have in their lives.

Admittedly, this was quite a new and regularly reoccurring persona throughout the novel, intriguing in its originality, so my advice is: expect it, embrace it, love it.

And beneath all of these beautifully developed and amazing characters is a plot more engaging than most and impressive, to boot.

Of course, anyone who knows the tale of Peter Pan would expect that they know where the story is headed at one point or another and I am pleased to report that Sky and Brown keep readers on their toes in the most exciting of ways.

Wendy thrives in the events of her story, making decisions most unexpected and impressive. I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Perhaps the most and really only disappointing thing about having the pleasure to read such an amazing novel both in general and especially prior to its official publication date is the fact that the wait I shall have to suffer through for the next chapter of the story already feels painfully long.

I imagine I shall end up rereading The Wendy at least twice more before the year is up. Its message is a strong and important one. We need to know not to give up on our dreams, to persevere in spite of what the world tells us we are not capable of.

And behind wonderful storytelling, characterization, and whimsical notes The Wendy encourages us to do precisely that.

So, now that I have thoroughly expressed my adoration for what is sure to be the best novel I read all year, my end request is that everyone immediately go procure a copy for themselves.

The Wendy is officially available on January 16th, and believe me, it is well worth the read. I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In fact, from the moment I stumbled upon The Intuitives, I was curious and in need of more. It sounded like such an interesting read, something I would really enjoy.

Instead of reading The Intuitives, though, I did my usual trick. Instead of picking up the book to have left me curious about the authors, I picked up a different book instead.

Thus began my foray into The Wendy. I love a good Peter Pan retelling and was instantly lured in by the possibilities offered by The Wendy — especially when I realised The Wendy is just the first book in The Tales of the Wendy series.

A whole series based around a Peter Pan retelling? Of course, I was more than willing. It was an interesting retelling, offering something different.

It had all the characters you would hope to see in a retelling. It offered up a lot for the future of the series.

It had some nice messages. However, it failed to satisfy me in the way I had hoped for. You see, while the book had lots of nice things for us to learn about, I feel as though nothing really happened.

I kept waiting for that big moment, yet it never came. For me, I simply wanted a bit more action in a Peter Pan retelling. The Wendy was fun and original, but it was not a story that had me on the edge of my seat.

Jan 06, Cassie C rated it really liked it Shelves: arcs. Review to come! The Wendy is an absolutely fantastic novel that truly sweeps you off your feet!

You immediately are sucked into the story Peter Pan retellings have been very hit or miss for me, and I am happy to report that this book is truly a winner.

It is unique and a fun twist on the original story, while still having all of the classic elements. To be completely honest, reading this book felt like I was reading a classic novel which isn't a bad thing at all!

The authors crafted a fun setting but also extraordinary characters. The took the original versions of these characters, expanded upon their personalities that we see in the original story, but still made them uniquely their own.

All of the characters had the same quirks that we love, but they also have some new personality traits that will make you fall in love with them more.

Wendy is such a strong, fierce female lead and I loved her representation. Hook is still sinister as ever, but we see a different side to him that is unexpected.

I loved how the authors dealt with the subject of gender and women being seen as inferior in the time period. The story is an inspirational one at its heart as we go on a journey with Wendy to overcome the obstacles thrown in her path.

I can't wait until the next book comes out and where the story goes. I highly recommend checking this book out if you like fun retellings and are a fan of Peter Pan.

You won't regret reading this hidden gem! Happy reading Jan 15, Angela Basilio rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , reviewed , own.

I received an early copy of this book and in no way, does this affect or influence my review. I am so happy to have read this book before its release date.

This also happens to be my very first review and the first book I have read from author Erin Michelle Sky. I knew right away I had to get my hands on it!

I mean hello, the Disney movie was so good that I have watched it at least a thousand times. So let me get right to it.

Except for a couple of changes here and there. Oh no, you see this retelling of Peter Pan is vastly different and original, yet oh the same. I say the same because the Peter Pan cast of characters remains the same except for a couple of new characters.

The twists and turns I experienced in this phenomenal story, all the wonderful and scary emotions I had to undergo until I got to the very end, had me falling out of my seat by the time I was done with it.

The characters, the plot, the ending and the book itself, are all worth it! Thank you so much Erin, for writing a fantastic story.

I absolutely loved this book and the sequel! Dec 29, Errin Krystal rated it it was amazing. The Wendy is a fantastic retelling of J.

No, their place is in the home, raising children and tending to their husbands, right? Well, Wendy is just not willing to sit back and accept her fate.

This is definitely Peter Pan as you have never seen it before. Wendy is a diviner with the British Home Office and Clandestine Services, recruited to sense magic that no one really believes in.

Peter Pan the leader of the everlost, with feathered wings and fearsome fangs and Hook is a young dashing sea captain with a mane of luscious locks, though his rivalry with Pan remains intact.

In a world that is full of misogyny, Wendy Darling is a total bad-ass. Never once in her life has she allowed the narrow-mindedness of her times get in the way of what she wants.

She learns how to navigate the stars, the mathematics and science involved in sailing a ship and becomes a more adept marksmen and swordsmen than most men in her platoon.

She is smart, determined and I just love her to pieces, solving her problems with her cutting intellect. When she is told to stay behind during the everlost raid, she refuses and dashes into the fray sword in hand and takes on Peter Pan himself.

I absolutely love this whole encounter, it would have to be one of my favorite scenes. He wrongfully thinks she incapable because she is a woman, but the tables are soon turned and there and then he comes to respect her.

I love it! Next to Wendy, Peter is my absolute favorite. There is an underlying flirtation between the two which I am absolutely ga ga for!

Wendy definitely does not need rescuing. She can rescue herself thank you very much. Yes, Tink is there too! This scenario leads into what has to be my favorite line in the entire book.

The writing is witty and clever and very reminiscent of some of the classic novels I have read in the past. There were so many parts where I was just outright grinning as I read.

I especially enjoyed watching Wendy match wits and intellect with the illustrious Captain James Hook is everything I never knew I needed.

When the book came to a close, I was left feeling hopeful and excited. Apr 12, C. Ogilvie rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult , humor , strong-female-leads , fairy-tale-retellings.
