Publisher's Summary

Number-One Best Seller in the Entire Kindle Store

Number Nine on Amazon Charts

I spent most of my life feeling dead inside—until I met Peter Pan and the Lost Boys.

It wasn't until Pan and Neverland that I finally felt alive.

But things are not all full of magic and sunlight on the island. There's something darker and more sinister haunting the forest.

And worse, the fae queen and Captain Hook are ready to fight for control of Neverland and they will stop at nothing to get what they want.

War is brewing—can the Never King get his shadow back and assume his rightful throne? And if he does, where will I fit?

Or will all of Neverland be in jeopardy right along with my dark, twisted heart?

NOTE: The Dark One is book two in the Vicious Lost Boys series. It is a dark reimagining of Peter and Wendy. If you like your enemies-to-lovers romance with hot, ruthless, morally gray love interests, you’ll enjoy The Dark One. You can expect an island with darkness and secrets and no true hero in sight, with a found family atmosphere, and "touch her and I’ll unalive you" vibes. The Dark One ends on a cliff-hanger.

Peter Pan was my first crush.

This is not the Peter Pan I remember…He’s even better, and Winnie is a badass now.

Oh My Word!!!!

The Dark One by Nikki St. Crowe is the 2nd in her somewhat Peter Pan retelling! Holy Moly what a great book! Loved it, and it's definitely more in my opinion! More diving into each of the major characters, including Hook and "The Crocodile", and steamier too! Nikki St. Crowe has me hooked! I need to know what will happen next! Also the narration ensemble was just amazing. Not sure of the terminology for it, but they were magnificent over all! Shane East as Pan is to die for, but again Curtis Michael Holland, Vanessa Edwin, Stella Hunter and Diontae Black were all superb and made these characters live!!!! ❤️

Spicy

Loved this twisted version of Peter Pan series. It was a little spicy but very well written. All the voices were perfect for the parts they portray.

Disappointed

Why disappointed? Because the book sounds so interesting based on the synopsis but in reality it’s 10% storyline and 90% sex scenes. I want to read the book but I can’t get past the constant prostitution glorifying, the lack of value or worth beyond being a vapid sex doll and every time the story gets moving it’s paused for more sexy time. I truly don’t mind some steamy scenes but this is just cheap porn.

You have chosen to live on a magical island that most of us grew up dreaming of, give me the wonder, the joy and of course some of the darker elements. The title and cover create such an element of dark excitement and I love the play on the “shadows” along with discovering more about Vane, Pan, and even Hook. There are some hidden gems here but unfortunately I really dislike the heroine and how much the author would rather give us sex than the story.

I made it to Chapter 15 before I am sadly putting it down.

Sincerely,
Disappointed

I am all for the Dark One

This sequel did not disappoint. This book is not about winning awards, but it is a fast read/listen, the voice actors are amazing, the story is intense and delicious and the ending has me hooked. I need book 3.

An interesting listen

The plot of the story is great although the pace is sometimes lost in what generally seems to be over the top sex scenes. Why are the female characters not more well rounded and seem to only care about sex? Hopefully in the third instalment we may see some more character development when it comes to Winnie and cherry.

these books finish far too fast

I'm loving this new wrist to the story of Peter pan, however they are over far too fast for my liking, I've never known 5 hours of my life pass so quickly as they do when listening to these books.
I'm eager for the next one but I think this might be one of those series where I have to wait till its completed as need to listen to them all in one go.
they are well worththe credit, I just wish the books were longer.
