ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Everland has everything you love about Peter Pan but reimagined into a dark, steam punk dystopia. While staying close to the original this retelling still manages to stand on its own and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Mary O'Sullivan

A story that re-imagines Peter Pan and Wendy in a stunningly unique way. Gwen, Joanna and Mikey Darling are among the few remaining orphaned children left in a decimated London, now called Everland-which is controlled by the Marauders-from the German Army. They are led by Captain Hanz Otto Oswald Kretshmer, better known as Captain Hook. When Gwen's sister, Joanna, is kidnapped by Hook's men, Gwen must band together with the Lost Boys in order to rescue her.
