This book is the adults dirty disney version of Hook, it is dark and twisted and in no way disappointing. Hook isn't a common retelling, Dee did this story justice! I loved how in depth Dee went with the characters, not just the hero and heroine. This book captivated me from the very beginning! I cannot wait to see what else comes from this collection if the first book was anything to go by!
