For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home—all because her mother believes that monsters are hunting them. Now these delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. The only saving grace is her best friend, Olivia, who’s coming with them for the summer.

But when Gwen and Olivia are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and taken to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey, Gwen realizes her mom might have been sane all along.

The world Gwen finds herself in is called Neverland, yet it’s nothing like the stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through her fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the roguish young pirate who promises to keep her safe.

With time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But will she be able to save Neverland without losing herself?

So what to say about this one? Well if you think you know the story of Neverland your wrong!  This book is up there with the likes of The Iron Fey series! It's an amazing stand alone that will have you begging for another book by this amazing author!!  



The cast of characters were all awesome and this felt like an episode of Once Upon A Time! But better!  This book has no love triangle and no cliffhanger. It sums the story up very well and well I would really love another book!  Like really I'm not sure what the author would do with it but it would be awesome and amazing!  

This story starts out and you know something isn't right!  Its pulls you into the story and your just trying to figure out what is up with Gwen's mom.  Well the twists and turns don't let up!  Gwen is kidnapped and taken off to Neverland.  Where she has to figure out who to trust.  Does she trust the one person who has always been the villain of the story?  Or does she trust the boy whom is supposed to be the hero?  Well if you watch Once Upon a Time you will know that you can never really know who the Heroes and who the Villans truly are until you've already made the mistake to trust one or the other.

This story is just so good!  It will keep you swooning and screaming no, yes, no, yes!  Don't let it slip though your fingers go buy it now!
