I'm a super fan of creepy fairy tale retellings.

This was a wonderfully creepy Peter Pan tale, where evil is on the menu and no one is safe. I really enjoyed reading through this mucky water of a story to find out the really reason Peter has lost his mind.

A.C. Wise has done an amazing job of painting a dark picture, from the characters to the story itself. There is no stone unturned and no plight to deep. 

If you need a twist on your mundane story, I would recommend this read.
