A Land of Never After (Curses of Never, Book 1)

About the book:

All my life, I’ve dreamed of the sea.

Mermaids, stormy skies, daring adventures, pirates…it was little wonder I sprinted to the docks the moment I left the orphanage. Eager to begin my new life, I searched for a ship that would have me—and found a thief instead. I chased the bastard.

Now I’m trapped.

I’m told this place is Neverland, but everything I touch is dead or dying; what’s left is hellbent on killing each other. Monsters lurk around every corner, and everyone I meet hides a damning secret. I’m thrust in the middle of a deadly feud, and the only one capable of unraveling the curse that plagues us.

Neverland is my home now. Until it’s done with me?

It will never let go.

Peter Pan meets Pirates of the Caribbean in A Land of Never After, but reader beware: this children’s tale has been reimagined for adult lovers of all things dark and deadly, with an LGBTQ+ positive twist. Content warnings include language, violence, and mentions of gender dysphoria and suicide.




This book was just amazing. It was so unpredictable and a damn good page-turner. I literally finished this book in 4 hours. (Okay it is about 174 pages, but it’s so easy to get sucked into the book)

I loved the plot. I’m a big sucker for a great retelling, and I’d only read one Peter Pan retelling before, so I had so high expectations for this book. Thankfully, this book did more than reach my expectations. It had amazing world-building and the story kept you on your toes.

To be honest, I only had 2 issues with the book. First, the story-line did more to fast sometimes and it was a bit easy to get lost. Second, was that there wasn’t much character development, but hopefully there will be in the rest of the series. Other than that, I guess you could say the book was perfect.

*Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of the book for my honest review.*
