Unsure if the virus has spread past England's borders but desperate to leave, Captain Hook hunts for a cure, which he thinks can be found in one of the survivors. He and his Marauders stalk the streets snatching children for experimentation. None ever return. Until the day they grab Joanna. As Gwen sets out to save her, she meets a daredevil boy named Pete. Pete offers the assistance of his gang of Lost Boys and the fierce sharpshooter Bella, who have all been living in a city hidden underground. But in a place where help has a steep price and every promise is bound by blood, it will cost Gwen. And are she, Pete, the Lost Boys, and Bella enough to outsmart Captain Hook?
About the Author
Wendy Spinale is a former character actor for the Disneyland theme park (so she s very familiar with the world of make believe). "Everland" is her debut novel. Wendy lives with her family in the California Bay Area.
For me this book is a 3 Star because although I loved the POV of Gwen I just couldn't get into the chapters with Hook. I really wished that this one would have been in the POV of Gwen and Peter. That way we could have gotten both of their sides. Or even just left it in Gwens. For me this one was really slow in parts and just didn't work out for me.
If you love steampunk, retellings, and a slightly slower book then check this one out.
