The Dark One (Vicious Lost Boys, #2)

By Nikki St. Crowe
The Dark One (Vicious Lost Boys, #2) by Nikki St. Crowe digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

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. Including using the one thing Pan never thought he wanted or needed -- me. I'm a descendant of the Darling family and now I belong to him and the Lost Boys.

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 and the Lost Boys. You can expect hate kissing, fighting, bickering, and ‘touch her and I’ll unalive you’ vibes.

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“She claimed the shadow!!!!”
Thumbs Up“If it weren't for the cliffhanger at the end of book one, I would not have continued with this series. But thankfully, the plot intensifies with major hurdles, new problems, and escalating tensions. Power dynamics shift, and a betrayal looms. The intricate web of intrigues kept me engaged, though I wish we were kept in the dark for a bit longer to intensify the suspense. Overall, the male character developments impressed, especially in their newfound determination to protect Winnie. Hook and Crocodile's backstory is pretty intriging. However, I couldn't help but feel frustrated by Winnie's continued focus on superficial relationships, especially given her traumatic past. While it's understandable that she's struggled a lot in her past and still uses sex as a coping mechanism, I'm eagerly awaiting the moment when she claims her power and embarks on a genuine character arc. The ending cliffhanger holds promise for just that, and I'm hopeful that Winnie's story will finally take the transformative turn I've been waiting for. I was also a bit disappointed with the way Cherry was portrayed. I just hope the plot-smut-ratio of the third book will be balanced out better 🪝”
