It is where I was born.
Therefore, darkness is all I know. Corruption is in my bones. So when I see him, I mean to win his heart and then break him. I mean to lure him to my arms and then destroy him. But it is his intentions and his wicked smile that deter me…at least until a lost soul from my past catches up with us.
Captain James Jones commandeered the ship Jolly Rodger when he left the Navy, when he could no longer deny his true calling as a pirate. As the Captain, James knows to never let his guard down, but when his crew happen upon a drifting girl and all signs point to a bad omen about her, he can't help but drag her aboard. Once awakened James finds that the girl is not at all a mere woman but is something else altogether unworldly. Entranced by her beauty, James falls for but it's her honesty and heart that my be their undoing. Revealing herself to Captain James, Bell brings evil upon his ship and their world begins to unravel when a certain old "friend" from Neverland entices and posses the crew of the Jolly Roger. When the imaginable happens, Bell unleashes her dark powers to avenge the love she never thought was possible.
Overall, amazing read, love this twist on a childhood classic. It's fun reading this book with all the elements and characters from a story I know so well, but transformed into a new hauntingly beautiful novel. Miss Bell is a very conflicted protagonist, who knows herself to be a creature of evil, but finds herself for the first time experiencing love. Bell sacrifice a lot to ensure her Captain is avenged. While Captain James tried to be the epitome of a hard-hearted pirate, but Bell melted him. FYI, officially hate Peter Pan and will now think of Peter as a jerk face! I also really enjoyed the perspective format of this book which wasn't in a linear timeline but went backwards with Captain James perspective and present time for Bell's, all of which helped add to a reader's knowledge of the story and help you fall for the characters and their plight. Anyways, I'm hooked on this new series and really need the next novel, I must know what happens next!
