    "Fairy tales have been told for centuries, but I really love when they're retold with a twist. Unhooked is a retelling of Peter Pan with a darker twist, and I appreciate that. The idea of Neverland to me has always been fairly dark, so why does Disney always portray it so happily? This telling makes much more sense to me. Now if only she'd retell Pinnochio next!"

    "Peter Pan in Scarlet is a sequel to the classic Peter Pan story, authorized by the family. It's a fun, adventure romp type story that you don't really see that often these days and it fantastically fun. My kids loved it."

The plot and diction is so captivating, and you'll never want to put this book down.It was so fun to revisit Neverland while reading this engaging book.

    "It is hard to recall the classic Peter Pan without wanting more to the story. Andrea Jones provides the further tale and adventure of Peter Pan and Wendy specifically for the adult who want to continue the adventure and have some fun along the way. I would have preferred a more serious bridge with the original work. And I do, of course, believe in fairies."

    "I couldn't wait for this book to come out! I loved the first two already and this one didn't disappoint. It delivered on all accounts and in my opinion it's even steamier and more exciting than the first two were. I love when that happens since so many times a series will go downhill. But not this one! Jump right in, you'll love it."
