About this deal

Which is also why I cannot rate the book as a whole as high as I hoped to: I love James so deeply that this story is just depressing me insanely much. And of a pirate-turned-captain determined to find his way back to the only place he ever felt like he belonged. Except Isabelle isn't the beautiful girl who lost the glass slipper and captured the prince's heart. After all, they were paved with only the best and most innocent of intentions: to fulfill his childhood dream. He journeys to the Many Kingdoms, meets Circe, Hazel, and Primrose (all original characters introduced in previous books in the series).

This haunted and haunting creature has awakened feelings and desires within her that she has never before known, remaking her as a woman. Still, if it wasn't going to get into anything too dark or complex, it could've had a little more excitement or something.

Still, if it wasn’t going to get into anything too dark or complex, it could’ve had a little more excitement or something.Shorts and Specials: The Walt Disney Christmas Show • Reading Magic with Figment and Peter Pan • You Can Fly! This is the 7th Hook-focused book I've read, the 6th origin story (I just like to establish what number I'm on each time I review another one lol). Upon reaching his majority, he 'runs' away from home to become a pirate, hoping to find a way back to that happy place.

However, so far this series, even though it's still Disney and not that deep, kept on surprising me. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. The first 100 pages were going so well, giving me high hopes that I was going to really like this one. I enjoyed getting to know James and Blackbeard, and the pirate adventures and magical lands they find themselves in were creative and fun.The integration of Valentino’s original characters is well done and opens up a whole world of inner workings – both in the Disney universe and beyond.

When Peter Pan and his fairy companion, Tinker Bell, fly in through the window of Wendy's nursery one night, it is the beginning of an adventure that whisks Wendy and her brothers, Michael and John, off to Neverland.

And it is on its most vital mission yet: to deliver a young woman whose marriage will seal the peace between Arqual and its mortal enemy, the secretive Mzithrin Empire. The last third was more intriguing but sadly, I missed proper descriptions about the feelings that James went through when entering Neverland and in general, it was kept very short as were his monologues about being back home. The 9th book in the New York Times bestselling Villains series tells the tale of the rise and fall of the infamous pirate, Captain Hook―a boy who grew up. She loves her family—jovial King Fergus, proper Queen Elinor, the mischievous triplets—and her peaceful kingdom.
