The 9th book in the New York Times bestselling Villains series tells the tale of the rise and fall of the infamous pirate, Captain Hook—a boy who grew up. Before Peter Pan and Wendy. Before the Lost Boys. There was just a boy named James who wanted to get back to Neverland. As a baby, James Bartholomew fell out of his pram and was taken to Neverland. James is claimed by his parents just shy of seven days—after which he would have officially become a Lost Boy. Once he returns to London, he never stops thinking about Neverland. As he grows up, he hates his life in London, and everything to do with growing up and eventually becoming a gentleman. So he seeks a position on the ship of the infamous pirate, Blackbeard. On Blackbeard's ship he learns to be a cutthroat pirate, and eventually becomes captain of his own ship, which James is determined to sail to Neverland. With the help of the Odd Sisters and a bit of magic, he just might get his wish. But returning to Neverland comes at a price—and now that he's grown up, the whole world seems to be rooting for his demise…
A great story about Captain Hook and how he became .
Holy crap! Knowing what James becomes makes this read a heartbreaking tale. Absolutely loved it!
Always look forward to these!
This one went by so fast. In a good way, it was short and quick to the point. I do get a little confused with the odd sisters timeline since it’s been so long since their story was told in depth, but I have to say I love the continuation of characters.
Hook is so fascinating to me so I was excited to read this one and I think Serena did a good job interpreting his story for her series.
