Summary

The stories were all wrong—Hook was never the villain.

For two centuries, all of the Darling women have disappeared on their 18th birthday. Sometimes they’re gone for only a day, some a week or a month. But they always return broken. 

Now, on the afternoon of my 18th birthday, my mother is running around the house making sure all the windows are barred and the doors locked. 

But it’s pointless. 

Because when night falls, he comes for me. And this time, the Never King and the Lost Boys aren’t willing to let me go. 

NOTE: The Never King is a reimagining of Peter and Wendy. Characters have been aged up for this darker, grittier version. If you like your enemies to lovers romance with hot, ruthless, morally gray love interests, you’ll enjoy The Never King. You can expect hate kissing, fighting, bickering, and "touch her and I’ll unalive you" vibes. Book one ends on a cliff.

tiktok made me do it

I've seen this book floating about tiktok for a while now, as I only listen to books I was pleased to see it had been brought to audible. I usual try to chose books that are longer as I feel like I'm getting more for my money, however I'm glad I decided to go ahead and get this one. its a great first book and sets the scene well for this new alterative to the original Peter pan. the narration is great and adds to the overall effect of the book. I hope the next book doesn't take too long to come to audible as I'll definitely be looking out for it.

Wow, a narrated experience!!

I’ve already read the book in ebook format and was listening to the audiobook because of the experience alone. The narrators were fantastic and having more than 1 or 2 really enhanced that experience.
Loved the story, pace and narrators. Great job!!

wish I could get my credits back,

the book was so short, it wasn't really worth my credits. I liked the narration and the twist on traditional Peter Pan story was good. However I was not into the way the sex scenes played out, was actually a turn off. the characters and the story had soooo much more potential. Disappointing !

I've been waiting for this to come out on audio and it did not disappoint! All the narrators did a phenomenal job bringing this story to life. it's a steamy RH told in 1st person POV. I can not wait until the next book in this series!

oh. my. God.

the voices!!! they're even better than I imagined. I had to have listened to this over and over already and am hoping we get one for The Dark One! Pan's voice is filling my mind heart and soul and it will never let me go

NICE

this book is intense but it has an equally strong story which isn't usually the case with these kinds of book I really enjoyed it.

Has potential

Alright. The underlying plot has so much potential. HOWEVER, it’s difficult to see said underlying plot and, any, character development through the copious amount of sex. It should be kept in mind that it is a quick read, so hashing out characters is kept relatively small.

I didn’t keep a tally, but it felt like every single chapter talked about sex/sexual encounters.

The narration cast is fantastic! Usually I’m not a fan of audio books that have multiple narrators, but this time, the cast fit the characters and I was transported off into the fantasy.

Will I be reading the next books as they come out? Most likely. I would love to see more from the storyline. Like I said, it has great potential.
