"The Mighty Hook" by Mark Tarrant

Most everyone has heard the story of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, his lost boys, and the evil pirate Captain Hook. Well, this is a very different take on that story; one that made a lot of sense to me. After all, if Peter Pan was a vampire who was turned while young, he would always be the boy in the tale. But he clearly wouldn't be the "good guy" of the story. Which turns the story into one where Captain Hook is the hero instead. 

I will admit that it wasn't a twist that I expected, but one that made a lot of sense when thought about. And it was a very interesting take on the story. I was fascinated to learn how James Hook  became the famous pirate we are familiar with, met Peter Pan and his fairy friend Belle as well as Hook's nemesis, the infamous crocodile that took his hand. And there is a lot more to this twist on Hook's tale.

I  received a review copy of this book from the publisher and enjoyed it a great deal.  I believe that anyone who enjoys twisted fairy tales, vampires, and  Peter Pan/Captain Hook's rivalry will find it as entertaining as I did.
