From “talented wordsmith” (Publishers Weekly) Lisa Maxwell comes a lush, atmospheric fantasy novel filled with twists and turns about a girl who is kidnapped and brought to an island inhabited by fairies, a roguish ship captain, and bloodthirsty beasts.
 For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home. Her mother believes they are being hunted by brutal monsters, and those delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. Gwen’s only saving grace is that her best friend, Olivia, is with her for the summer.
 But shortly after their arrival, the girls are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and dragged to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey. And Gwen begins to realize that maybe her mother isn’t so crazy after all…
 Gwen discovers that this new world she inhabits is called Neverland, but it’s nothing like the Neverland you’ve heard about in stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through your fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and tries to find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the captivating pirate who promises to keep her safe.
 Caught in the ultimate battle between good and evil, with time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to finally face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But can she save Neverland without losing herself?


Thank you Simon and Schuster for sending me a copy of Unhooked for review. This in no way affected my opinion in this review.

So me loving this book comes as no surprise since I announced briefly my love on instagram with the photo above. "Unhooked by @lisamaxwell13 is dark and unique twist on a classic. I have been reading a bunch of books that did not live up to the hype but #Unhooked did not disappoint.😘😍 Travel to #neverland and experience it like never before."

So I picked up Unhooked right before I headed to Disney and this got me pumped and excited. I was stuck in some pretty long lines but the time flew by at Epcot with this book in my hands and I finished. I was in a complete funk up until I read this book. Lisa had me at the dark faeries. All I could think of was  fantasia and the dark faeries. I had these fantasia pins of the fairies I pulled out while reading just to feel completely engrossed in the book.

I love Gwen and Olivia her best friends relationship. They have fun and fierce moments and moments of utter heartbreak. I enjoyed peter having a dark side but still being the spunky prankster that is true to his nature. Hook is always been a swoon worthy bad boy. I however like how Lisa brings out her characters attributes and their flaws so all characters have more of a dimension to them.

Unhooked was fun with the right amount of twists but still had enough of the story you expect and love to make it great. A heart pounding non-stop adventure that will keep you guessing how it will end. This is my must read to all of you! I can not wait to see what Lisa writes next.
