Review: Neverland Evermore by Sarah J. Pepper

Neverland Evermore
Sarah J. Pepper

Publication date: June 11th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult
Neverland has a way of breaking people. It corrupts souls. It destroys hope. The evil festering inside it brings out the darkness in our hearts and leaves us worse than dead. No good has ever come from it. Ever.
It is where I was born.
Therefore, darkness is all I know. Corruption is in my bones. So when I see him, I mean to win his heart and then break him. I mean to lure him to my arms and then destroy him. But it is his intentions and his wicked smile that deter me…at least until a lost soul from my past catches up with us.
My world ignites into flames. My love’s sinks to the depths of the sea. We are from two different worlds that overlap for a brief moment in time. But it is that moment which carries me forward. It is that moment in which he lives in the past. It is that moment in which I embrace my true nature and seek vengeance against those responsible for feeding his hand to that godforsaken alligator.

I've read quite a few re-tellings of Peter Pan, but never one quite like this. It was fantastic.
It still held all the mystery and magic that came with the original story, but Pepper gave it a bit of a dark twist, turning Peter into a devious character, nothing like the immortal boy we're all so used to, and painting Neverland in a new light. She also made a certain Captain seem more real and likeable.
I loved Pepper's remake of Tinkerbell. She was feisty and determined - With a dark past that she so desperately wanted to escape, Bell had a good heart and soul with an inner beauty that captured the Captain. Although most would think they were an unusual pair, it only made for a more intriguing read.
This story was filled with action and adventure. Add a dash of romance, and a sprinkle of enchantment, and it was superb. I cannot wait to read more.

Award Winning Author, Sarah J. Pepper, specializes in fantasy and paranormal romance. She unveils the beauty of love in her new adult/young adult novels. Her works envelope dark, paranormal romance - think "happy ever after" but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn't only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It's in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of - both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn't always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn't mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
