Reviews

"A rich and darkly humorous tale of a man trapped in a child's nightmare. A delicious and thought-provoking read." --Laurie King, New York Times bestselling author of The Bones of Paris"Jensen's wonderful imagination and devotion to history and myth allow the reader to fly with her through this outstanding adventure - no fairy dust required." --Publishers Weekly"A marvellous book. A plot to keep you guessing, and a character to fall in love with. Written with verve and warmth, Alias Hook will challenge what you thought you knew about Neverland, and have you cheering for an unlikely but irresistible hero." --Paula Brackston, New York Times bestselling author of The Midnight Witch"It's a really beautifully written novel about Captain Hook. It tells that story from his perspective. He's stuck in this childhood world where Peter Pan rules everything until an adult woman finally falls into Neverland. It's an unusual premise. I love it." --Eloisa James, author of Three Weeks with Lady X"Captain Hook is as proud and lonely as Lucifer--though, being a pirate, he's loads more fun--while the impious Peter Pan is as cruel as an unleashed child can be. Alias Hook is pure joy." --Broos Campbell, author of Peter Wicked"A captivating blend of fantasy, adventure, and historical fiction, Alias Hook is a fresh, utterly convincing reinterpretation of the Peter Pan story. Lisa Jensen takes a classic villain and transforms him into someone we care about and root for all the way to the emotionally stirring end. You will never look at Captain Hook the same way again!" --Elizabeth Blackwell, author of While Beauty Slept"Both a cracking adventure and a chance to witness that annoying little prig Peter Pan get a good kicking! Highly recommended." --C.C. Humphreys, author of Vlad - The Last Confession"Scintillating description and deep characterization make Jensen's Neverland a psychologically intriguing place to visit. Jensen offers a humanized take on Captain Hook that will be sure to entertain fans of the fairy tale-retelling genre." --Library Journal
