Hook's Pan (Kingdom Series, Book: 5)
*Mature Audience Recommended. Contains sexual scenes*
Hook's Pan is the fifth book in the Kingdom Series by Marie Hall. I first came across the series when I found Gerard's Beauty, a twist on Beauty and the Beast. At that point, I was hooked on Ms. Hall's writing style. I have always loved fairy tales, and the twists that she created made me drool, blush, laugh and reconsider just how many fairy tales are what we think they are. ;)
So, I went through the series, grabbing Her Mad Hatter, Red and Her Wolf and Jinni's Wish. I don't think I read them in order, but I do know that I love the series. Each book, including Hook's Pan, is definitely a stand-alone, which is enhanced if you have read the other stories.
When I read this book, everything came together. The last of the Bad Five, James Hook is in the hands of his fairy godmother, Danika. Having once loved and lost, he's become almost as vicious as the tales have made him out to be over the past one hundred years. In this version of "Peter Pan", Hook isn't nearly as bad (or as ugly) as mortals have made him out to be. Peter and Tink, on the other hand, are far worse.
I absolutely loved this book, loved the series and truly hope to see more of the Kingdom soon. Like, maybe a little Hunstman or Smee action. *wink*
