Peter Pan is one of my favourite novels and I'm always happy to encounter a good re-imagining of Barrie's tale. Alias Hook definitely falls into this category. Focusing on Hook, Jensen creates a Neverland that is darker and harsher than we've seen and makes James Hook a flawed but sympathetic human being stuck in a land that seems designed to punish him. With elements of historical fiction as well as fantasy, this novel will appeal to Pan fans as well as readers who enjoy a tale of self-discovery and redemption.

After falling in love with Captain Hook from the t.v. series Once Upon a Time, this book was absolutely satisfying. The characters are well written and every question that arises is sooner or later answered thoughtfully. I love this book! Thank you Lisa Jensen!

Fans of retold fairy tales will want to pick this up immediately. Jensen's meticulous world building sheds a new light on Neverland, and wonderful character development will have readers shifting allegiances as Captain Cook endures centuries of ridicule and humiliation from a rather nasty Peter Pan. This unconventional coming-of-age story also features a satisfying romance, making for a very enjoyable read.
