I love a good fairy tale retelling, and Nazarea Andrews started a fantastic one in Girl Lost. Now it’s time to show you my review for the sequel, and conclusion to the Neverland Lost series, Forever Found. Don’t forget to check out both books (Forever Found is just 77p/99c) and enter the giveaway.
Losing Gwen was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to survive. I’ve never loved anyone the way I love her.
But finding her was never about that. And now that I have found her–now that she knows the truth about me and the Island, I have to trust her to believe. Because her leaving me didn’t just destroy me–its killing Neverland.
I need her to love me. But we all need her to believe again.
Peter Pan has grown up and found the girl who left–but the stakes are higher than ever in this romantic conclusion to the story begun in Girl Lost.
The sequel and conclusion to Nazarea Andrew’s modern day retelling of Peter Pan is finally here. I was completely captivated by Girl Lost (book #1), and so I was highly anticipating the return to these characters and storyline.
In Girl Lost, we were given the story from Gwen’s POV, as she battled with what was real, and what was make believe. But in Forever Found, we get to hear from the Boy. From Peter Pan himself, as he fights to save his best friend and his island, and bring back the girl he had lost.
Forever Found is a very quick read. It took less than two hours to read from cover to cover, and though I enjoyed it, I didn’t feel the pull of the previous book. I think that maybe had this been a full length novel, I may have had a better chance to connect with Peter, and really feel the things he did, because I just didn’t get that in Forever Found, and I felt that the story was a little rushed.
But like I said, I did enjoy this final instalment of the Neverland Lost series – I’m a big fan of anything that let’s my imagination go wild, and this series has certainly done that, while still maintaining a modern New Adult twist. This was the first retelling that this author has released, and I think she’s taken off on a great start. I’ll definitely be following what Nazarea brings next.
Nazarea Andrews is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. She loves chocolate and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids.
