Her hands began to tremble and she clutched them to her chest. After a few pages of tension, darkness and [censored] followed, the prologue ends with the arrival of the titular character and the following ominous passage: The boy came and knelt beside her. While she cried into her hands, he told her of an enchanted island where no grown-ups were allowed.

Where there were other kids like her, who loved to laugh and play. Where there were great adventures to be had…What else did she have to lose?

Reading the opening prologue was like a shot in the gut and I think Brom handled it perfectly. He let the reader know immediately that this was not the Peter Pan from the Disney stories and they were preparing to embark on a journey that was dark and dangerous and different from what they have experienced before. From that single, brutal image, this version was born.

However, even those that have read the original Barrie stories, the ones not watered down by convention and propriety, will find a much different Peter here.

Every shred of the game-playing trickster has been transformed into a wounded, traumatized solider child whose pain has hardened him into a borderline sociopath. In his recruitment of children, he gives no thought to preying on their weaknesses in order to win them to his cause.

By doing so, he humanizes all that Peter does and it adds a depth to his character that no other adaptation has ever come close to equaling. As a character, Peter is amazing and I can not adequately express the praise Brom should receive for taking such a well known figure and completely fleshing him out.

The Child Thief

Men-kind shared this world for but a blink, then, sadly, they became enlightened, found science and religion. The new world of men left little room for magic or the magical creatures of old.

There are so many nooks and crannies to this world to explore that my head feels like it is going to burst trying to distill it down in this review.

Let me just say that this is an epic story with a large cast painted against a wonderfully crafted setting that is perfectly realized by Brom. From that single, brutal image, this version was born.

The characters in this story feel real and genuine. The conflicts and problems the characters face arise organically and feel like life.

He is a central thorn in the side of main character, Nick. Leroy does some absolutely despicable things during the story. Yet, for all of that scumbaggery, when late in the book Leroy tells his back story to Nick…my eyes welled up with tears…Brom needs some serious kudos for that, although some of the credit for this needs to go the audio narrator who was trying for an Oscar with his reading.

Anyway, this is an amazing novel and on the short list of my favorites of all time.It was well written and I understood the concept, but I just couldn't bring myself to like it. Elves and goblins and nightmarish demonic witches and cannibalistic faery folk litter the pages and that is an appropriate word as their dismembered corpses and crushed souls blow about in the aftermath of some quite appalling blood-letting.

I love that he never gave up,because he knew that this world-which was filled with monsters-wasn't for him. Nick complains.

Welcome to Ramblings!

Many more die fighting for their lives in Avalon, and Peter must go out seeking blood for Deviltree. I liked the idea of a dark Peter Pan re-telling. Dec 26, Lyn rated it really liked it.

And all the children goes willingly,because they think that they have nothing to lose.

While she cried into her hands, he told her of an enchanted island where no grown-ups were allowed. These illustrations could get a little creepy at times, but they were great and they made me get even more invested because I could have a clearer picture of Avalon and the characters in my mind.
