A very clever take on Peter Pan. As soon as I heard it was JM Barrie's classic tale but mixed with steampunk, war and the end of the world I was convinced to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The characters are compelling, the tweaks to the story worked really well, there was lots of action and heart. Nicely done. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Everland is a brilliant fantasy-fiction novel. It uses the template of Peter Pan but transports the story into modern time, making every character much more relatable and complex compared to the original story. This version of Peter Pan takes place during the aftermath of bombings in England caused by the ruthless Captain Hook. These bombs and the newly unleashed disease has destroyed everyone in England except for the immune children, lead by Pete, who live in the secret lost city to avoid Captain Hook and his men. But time is running out, food is running out, kids start to become infected, and Gwen's sister has been kidnapped by Hook's men. This newer version of Peter Pan is a must read for all fantasy and adventure loving teens. The big difference with this book and the original is that the the author switched magic into logic yet this novel will still captivate on the first page. -@Flo_Reada of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Great dystopian steampunk interpretation of Peter Pan with a strongly supported and logical alternative mythology. Normally I stay away from all things Peter Pan because, well, I dislike the original story so much. However, this book has great strong and positive male and female protagonists, lots of exciting action scenes, and great alternate explanations as to the original story's touchstones: why there is an island of boys, Hook, a different take on a flying (Tinker)Bella, etc. I LOVED this book.

Peter Pan as futuristic steampunk viral outbreak?! Yes, please! I loved the dual narrative of this story, and while Hook is kind of whiny, I think it really is true to his character from the original story. Peter is also fairly true to his original character--he is pretty sexist, and Spinale addresses this in the story. Fortunately, Wendy gets fed up with it (as does Bella!), and turns on the girl power! If you want a brand new twist on this classic tale with a teense of mechanical prowess, this is the way to go.

A new alternative history that gives a new, realistic twist on the Peter Pan story.
