As Captain Wendy Maynard...
I have everything I ever dared dream of. A ship all my own. Friends by my side. A purpose—and a home.
I should have known it would all go to shit.
Three days of storms have left The Jolly Serpent battered and broken, and my crew no longer trusts me to pick up the pieces. Just when it looks like Peter and I are about to be thrown overboard, the unlikeliest of saviors shows up...
I didn't plan on seeing Captain Hook again so soon, but he needs me, and I need him. The sea witch Ursa is hiding far more than secrets, and if the rumors are to be believed, her realm makes the horrors of Neverland look warm and fuzzy in comparison. Failure simply isn't an option. If we don't retrieve what we've lost, it's not our lives Ursa wants.
It's our very souls.
The adventures of A Land of Never After continue in its thrilling sequel A Sea of Eternal Woe, where Sinbad meets the Little Mermaid. Like its predecessor, this dark fantasy reimagining is filled to the brim with monsters, curses, and pirates, and contains language, violence, depictions of gender dysphoria, and mentions of suicide.
-This book is a dark adult romance. As such there is graphic language, violence and sexual content. There is physical assault, but not rape.
-Mental illness/Depression/Anxiety/General Trauma: There are depictions of PTSD, panic attacks/disorders, and general depressive thoughts/lines spoke to other characters. There are no depictions/mentions of self harm, and no suicide scenes in this book (however, book 1 does have a scene that could be considered a suicide scene). There are lines that imply suicidal tendancies/thoughts, but nothing explicit or graphic.
-Phobias are used against characters within the book, intended to make them panic.
-Gender dysphoria, body dysmorphia: Peter Pan is a trans boy currently going through puberty in this novel he is unfortunately dealing with gender dysphoria and body dysmorphia throughout most of the book. It's not mentioned in every single chapter or scene he's in and doesn't always go into great detail, but when he's in a vulnerable state or upset, that's generally what he's upset about, so there are a number of conversations and scenes reflecting this.
-Instances of transphobia, including misgendering: This is not prevalent through the whole book, but there is a scene where a character is outed to a group of strangers.
