Seas (Wendy Darling #2) by Colleen Oakes (Review)

    Addicting and epic, Wendy Darling: Seas picks up where the first novel left off. Rescued by Captain Hook and his hoard of evil pirates... or is it captured by them; Wendy is thrown into a new highly dangerous situation in which she will do anything to protect her little baby brother, Michael. While facing off pirates, mermaids and constant danger; the threat of Peter Pan still looms as his dark obsession with her grows by the day. Time is running out and if Wendy does not find a way to stop Peter, she knows he will capture her all over again and she will never get back to London with her brothers.
    I really enjoyed this novel. The dark intensity from the first novel transferred well into Wendy Darling: Stars. Wendy was still a very well developed character with a deep capacity to love. Her independent yet polite personality made her interactions with other characters entertaining and unique. On top of all that, there are more really well designed characters in this series. Micheal is a good example of this, his cute adorable childish ways lighten up the story just enough for the readers to keep on reading, and his innocence riles up the protective instinct in almost and reader. Besides the Darlings, the novel is made great by the villain, Peter Pan. Peter both horrifies and rivets the readers into being unable to put the book down. My only real complaint about this book is that there did not seem to be enough Peter Pan in it, but I have a feeling we will be getting plenty more of Peter in the next instalment. I cannot wait until the next novel, and definitely recommend the series. I give Wendy Darling: Stars the rating of FOUR AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
