    Have you ever wondered what the fuck happened to Captain Hook after the crocodile ate him You ll find out when you read Alias Hook But let me tease you a bit Hook doesn t dieWe all know Hook as that little fucker who likes to ruin all the fun But if there s one thing that ll change after you read this book, it ll be your view on this guy Lisa Jensen portrayed him in a different light We re shown a softer side of him the side that cares about the past lives of his crew members the side that can t seem to stop thinking about all the what ifs.Alias Hook gives us a whimsical, romantic take on the story of Captain Hook Magic was everywhere, and so were regret, confusion, love, and all these feelings that re new to Hook It was absolutely fantastic to see his view of the world change, all because of this girl that magically plunked into Neverland uninvited.Hook and the mortal woman Stella were adorable together Okay, fine, the romantic pacing wasn t as clean as it could ve been There was this one part where I went, ...

    Also reviewed for Addicted2HeroinesSo what if Peter Pan wasn t really as cute as the stories made him out to be What if he had traded his real life for eternal youth, and now he was just a brat who wouldn t grow up Well, a powerful brat who rules the land of children s dreams.Neverland.Have you ever seen what happens to little boys who have no adult supervision They go feral rather quickly Goodbye, soap and water Hello, property destruction If you ve had kids, been around kids, or even just remember what it was like to be a kid, then you also know that children can be incredibly cruel Mainly, because they have no idea what the word consequences means Their saving grace is that they re adorable when they sleepGrowing up is good You learn hopefully that you are not the center of the universe, that no one is obligated to make you happy, and that you need to take other people s feelings into consideration.Can you imagine what would become of a boy who had stayed a child for thousands of years Yeah So, Pan is just a bloodthirsty tyrant who still has all of his baby teeth.And Hook What if he were a big bad pirate back in the day And what if he pissed off the wrong woman Oh, let s saysome powerful voodoo priestess And wh...

    This was such an exciting, interesting book I wasn t really sure what to expect with this book and I really liked it Instead of being a full blown retelling, Hook exists alongside the original story of Peter Pan Hook is of the real story where Peter isn t a protagonist nor is he a hero I really liked how this ...

    4.5 Stars I didn t love this quite as much as some of my other 5 star books, but it was so much better than many that I ve rated 4 stars Days after finishing, I m still looking back and thinking, wow that was good, so I m going to round up to 5 stars Alias Hook was a fantastic re imagining of Peter Pan I absolutely loved it It s not just a retelling or a fleshing out of the original tale, but completely turns the whole legend on its head Jensen turned everything around in such a believable way I feel like she thought of everything, the picture was so complete I felt like I was in Neverland, and this was the true story of Peter Pan It s so well done, so realistic, and the flipped take on the old story makes so much sense when you re looking at everything from an adult s perspective.Neverland still feels magical, because it s still a fantastic place full of magic and legends like mermaids, fairies, and pirates But it also feels real, treacherous and sad, with everything subject to...

    I picked this up because I m one of the seemingly few people who ve read Jensen s previous novel, Witch From the Sea, which was a highly entertaining historical fantasy of the swashbuckling life Here, she continues on with the pirate theme, writing a riff on Peter Pan from the point of view of Captain Hook.I have to admit that I had my doubts about the premise Stories based in another author s world are often suspect there are so many ways in which it can go horribly wrong Probably due to my attitude, it took me a little while to get into the book but then, it fully won me over Captain Hook, the story posits, was Captain Hookbridge a wealthy, 17th century rake who lived a cruel and dissolute life as a privateer until the curse of a woman he d wronged sent him into the Neverland Trapped and unable to die, he endures endless years as the nemesis of Peter Pan that J.M Barrie s stories introduced us all to But one day, the unthinkable happens an adult woman is found in Neverland Parrish is escaping the trauma she endured as a nurse during WWII but no one in Neverland is prepared for what her arrival might mean.Peter Pan is a particularly difficult story to work with, I think, because it has so much about it to love while simultaneously being deeply problematic from a modern point of view I feel that in Alias Hook Jensen succeed in capturing the magic that readers such as myself remember from childhood w...

    It isn t you, it s me You are a perfectly nice book and I m sure there are lots of readers out there who will love you for the book that you are You and I are just not meant to be.For me Alias Hook started out quite good in the beginning but as the story progressed my interest in the story declined and it took every ounce of my being just to continue Not that the book is badly written it wasn t just my cup of tea The idea was great Captain Hook, the great villain in Neverland isn t really the great villain Instead he is stuck there, has been for 200 years, and it is Peter Pan that is the actual bad boy Then one day a woman arrives in Neverland, why is she there Who sent her The book isn t bad, I liked parts of it I liked the idea that Hook is the victim and Peter Pan is the one that is tormenting him How fun is there to be stuck in Neverland, immortal while the crew is mortal and Pan and his boys kill them off and new grown ups arrive to join the crew on the ship Not bloo...

    Another arc requested o_OOH MY GOD HOW DO PEOPLE EXPECT ME TO RESIST REQUESTING THESE STORIES I M DOOMED.3.5 stars Arc provided by St Martin s Press through NetgalleyRelease Date 8th JulyI was drawn to this story mostly due to this amazing synopsis.C mmon Who wouldn t want to read a story in which one of history s famous rivals get their social roles switched So yes, when it comes to the premise of this story, this would get a five star rating.Also, let me just say that the quality of the writing is indisputable.However, the grand quantity of nautical references _No, I m not ignoring where the story takes place, and that almost all the characters are sailors _ after a while, started grating on my nerves, since the story drags quite a bit without anything of actual relevance actually happening.Not being keen on being immersed _no pun intended _ in such a nautical language, I ll have to say that through most of this, its reading wasn t as smooth as I was hoping But this was my experience with it, and hopefully other readers will enjoy it than I did I ll even admit that this feels as the type of story that will probably improve with a couple of re readings especially when combined with time and patience.The thing is, calling this fa...

    Five reasons to grab your ear buds and listen to Alias Hook1 The writing is simply wonderful from the way that it flowed to the vivid details of Neverland This is meant for adults and the language can get colorful, but it also offered a unique perspective casting Hook and his crew in a whole new light.2 Captain James Benjamin Hook Ralph Lister did an excellent job of giving him voice and Jenson truly fleshed him out making me see this pirate in an entirely new light Gone are the images from movies and the Disney animation Jensen gave us his back story and I found all of the details delightful We sees his flaws, frustrations and yes his fear of the croc.3 Stella Parrish is a grown woman who makes her way to Neverland and forever changes James I adored this snarky, clever woman She says what she thinks, ...

    It haunts me beyond all reason, an ache in my heart I can t explain or ignore And it all began with the damn book There it sits, the crumbling old thing, on the tea table next to the window I run my fingers over its nubby, embosses cover, the gilding almost entirely worn away, a boy in leaves and a pair of tarty little mermaids I needn t open the cover to see what s written there it s scrawled just as indelibly in my memory a single word, Believe
