Beyond Neverland by Heather Killough-Walden (Sequel to Forever Neverland)

I have been looking forward to this book for a long time.  I loved “Forever Neverland”.  I admittedly can’t remember much of that story line anymore, but when Beyond Neverland came out I bought it instantly. 

This book was written in a way that it sounded like poetry.  It makes sense for this type of book more than the author’s other works.  It was beautifully written.

This book takes up two years after the end of the first book.  Neverland was destroyed by Wendy’s story to save their lives.  Hook and Peter Pan had worked together to defeat the Never Bird.  Hook is transported back to his world where he is the pirate king.  Wendy, Michael and John all go back to their world where they are each separately going to either boarding school or university.  Wendy is about to turn twenty.  Peter Pan and Tinkerbell are somewhere together (perhaps London) trying to survive. 

One night a strange fog arrives and all the players know that it is not normal.  Someone is after revenge and everyone is drawn together again.  New villains are introduced to the reader and we learn more about Tinkerbell’s past. 

Favorite quote:

“Sometimes, if you’re lucky, fear leaves as monotony sets in.” –Michael Darling
