I was given a free copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Wonderland and the Looking Glass World have been joined to Oz, saving three faery lands from destruction – but nothing is as simple as this when the Cheshire Cat is involved.
Meanwhile, the March Hare leads a renegade army from Wonderland and Mombi plots to bring even more chaos in an effort to escape Oz. Glinda must delve into her own past – but will what she discovers require the greatest sacrifice of all? And as three magical realms seek to find balance, an eternally young boy makes his way to Oz with secrets of yet another faery world – Neverland.
Every shadow has a beginning and an end. It is just the way of such things. Marvellous things, they live and die with the coming of light, then fade away when another larger shadow comes along. But they always come back. Not always the same size of shade of dark, but they always do.
WHAT I THOUGHT
The Marvellous Neverland of Oz is my favourite book in the Oz-Neverland series so far. I loved the way the book opened. The tone is different than the other books and in a good way. I wasn’t sure what to expect when Neverland and Peter Pan entered the equation. I thought it would be a bit messy but the author makes it work really well. I don’t think I’ve ever read Peter Pan but I’ve seen pretty much all of the movie versions (i.e. Disney’s and Hook). Now I really want to read Peter Pan. I found this book a lot more interesting and the series really starts to shine. I look forward to reading more.
