My Review
I really enjoyed reading this book. I found it fascinating and very intriguing. I liked the writing style and the world was really interesting.

My favourite character was Captain Hook.
I really enjoyed the mix of fairytales in the book and how the author made them to fit her story so well.

Rating: 4 stars

About the book:

As Captain Wendy Maynard...

I have everything I ever dared dream of. A ship all my own. Friends by my side. A purpose—and a home. I should have known it would all go to shit.
The exhausting combination of storms and outrunning monsters have left The Jolly Serpent battered and broken, and my crew no longer trusts me to pick up the pieces. Just when it looks like Peter and I are about to be thrown overboard, the unlikeliest of saviors shows up…

My father.

I didn’t plan on seeing Captain Hook again so soon, but he needs me, and I need him. The sea witch Ursa is hiding far more than secrets, and if the rumors are to be believed? Her realm makes the horrors of Neverland look warm and fuzzy in comparison. Failure to retrieve what we’ve lost simply isn’t an option. If we do, it’s not our lives Ursa wants.

It's our very souls.

The adventures of A Land of Never After continue in its thrilling sequel A Sea of Eternal Woe, where Sinbad meets The Little Mermaid. Like its predecessor, this dark fantasy reimagining is filled to the brim with monsters, curses, and pirates. This installment contains language, violence, sexual content, gender dysphoria, and instances of transphobia, including misgendering.

Meet the Main Character: Wendy!

Hi Wendy! Can you introduce yourself?

Oh, hi! I'm Wendy Maynard, daughter of... well, never mind. I'm sixteen years old, love the sea, and my best friends are a boy named Peter Pan and his fairy, Tink.

When A Sea of Eternal Woe starts, what is your life like?

It's not going as expected, that's for damn sure. My life's dream has been to captain a ship of my own, but it's hardly fair that my very first voyage involves dodging bloodthirsty sea monsters.

What do you want more than anything?

Don't tell anyone because it's embarrassing, but what I want most is a home and a family. I'm hoping I'll find both at sea.

Tell us about Peter, who he is and what he's like?

Peter and I met on my sixteenth birthday. We didn't exactly get off on the right foot considering he stole from me, but once I pried some answers out of him he became much more tolerable, even likeable. We're nearly inseparable now, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Weapon and outfit of choice?

To use on Hook, a blade (he's afraid of them), but for everyone else, a pistol. I'm most comfortable in a loose fitting shirt and breeches, paired with a decent pair of boots, of course.

Tell us about Captain Hook...what's it like working with him?

Gods, do we have to talk about him? The man is insufferable, and I can barely stand to be in his presence. I'm not sure what you mean about working together - he's all but taken charge, the bastard.

How keen are you to go head to head with the sea witch, Ursa?

I wouldn't say I'm keen on a personal level, because I'm facing her for Peter, and no one else. I trust him, though, and trust that he knows what he's doing far more than I ever could.

Tell us about your world! What is it like and how far have you traveled?

I'm afraid I'm not much use on the travel front - I didn't leave my home city, Afterport, or the nearby Neverland until we left to seek out Ursa. As for my world, it was relatively mundane until I ventured into Neverland and discovered that monsters, both man and beast, are very much real.

Tell us 2 random facts about yourself!

I own an enchanted music box that will play any song you ask of it, and I seem to possess an affinity for certain creatures - Neverland's Nightstalkers, for example. I could hear them speak when few others could.

Lastly, what can we expect from you during A Sea of Eternal Woe!

Evidently I'll be pushed to my limit, both physically and mentally, discover new uses for my talent with beasts, and forced to confront Captain Hook on multiple occasions. I really don't like the sound of that last one.
