Tomorrow isn’t promised, no matter how immortal you think you are.
In the aftermath of Vivienne’s capture, she discovers she's destined to become one of the forgetful P.A.N. The devastating diagnosis leaves her questioning her relationships—and her place in Neverland. While on her second recruitment mission, she ignores a cardinal rule, and one of her fellow P.A.N. pays the ultimate price for her mistake.
Outrage over the death spurs Lee Somerfield's growing rebellious faction to fight fire with fire, leaving H.O.O.K. in ashes and Neverland ripped apart from within.
Navigating new love and old secrets, Vivienne must now face the consequences of her actions … and decide if living forever is worth forgetting everything.

“Hopeful that you could love me the way I love you.”
“What way is that?”
He whispered, “To the point of madness.”

It’s a short while after the ending of The PAN and I must say that I am glad to be back at Kensington Academy and even happier to be back in the magic of Neverland. This swoon-worthy sequel stole my heart more than Book 1. Deacon is still the sexiest lostboy this side of anywhere, the banter is steamier, and Vivienne gets more powerful page after page.
Vivienne is fully embracing her Active Nevergene and is going out on recruiting missions while our favorite flyboy Deacon is back in London on trial. A series of devastating and emotionally charged events leave our couple spinning. I had moments of feeling my heart was so full it would burst, to feelings of wanting to slap a certain lostboy then kiss him, to tears in my eyes. It was an emotional rollercoaster and I never saw a single moment coming. From Chapter 1, I was completely immersed in this world again. We get to know our side characters a little better plus we get to meet some new ones including the legendary Peter Pan himself and just as we would suspect… he’s up to no good, and we love him even more for it. I would actually like a whole book of Peter Pan, please.
“I’m allowed to be angry. I’m allowed to be disappointed and hurt. This isn’t some fairytale where we get to end our story with happily-ever-after. We’re going to disagree. We’re going to fight. But eternity is a long time to go without forgiveness.”
But, will our couple survive the nightmare that Neverland has turned into? With a rebellion on the rise and the threat of HOOK, can our lovebirds overcome the odds? Faced with obstacles like the risk of losing Vivenne’s memory and immortality, Deacon’s scandalous past, and a couple of stupid mermaids… Can Vivenne & Dash win out the day? Let’s just say The HOOK delivers on all fronts and will leave you begging for Book 3, The CROC. Perfect for fans of Sci-Fi, slow-burn romance, fantasy, and Peter Pan.
“We’re in this together. Whatever happens, I’m by your side.”
“I’d rather have one lifetime grounded with you,” he said, cupping her face in his hands and rubbing his thumbs over her cheeks, “than a thousand years flying alone.”

Oh Hi! I’m Krysten (@ladyofbookshire). Wife. Mom to two fur-babies. Lover of Fiction, Fantasy, Romance and I spend every day (almost) trying to make Romantasy an actual genre. It’s my favorite. I call sunny Orlando, Florida home. That’s right… i’m 15 minutes from Disney World. I mainly only text in GIFs. I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I’m originally from Maryland. The only thing I may love more than reading is coffee… this is still up for debate. I’m passionate about finding new stories and sharing them with others and am always open to having a reading conversation. Not a fan of love triangles unless they are done really well and I love dark romance… especially a dark romantasy. That genre will always call to my heart.
