 Andrea Jones is author of the award-winning series, the Hook & Jill Saga (Reginetta Press). Hook & Jill is a serious parody of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan story, illuminating the pirate point of view. Intended for adult readers, this first novel in Jones' series questions the premise of Barrie’s original work: is it desirable to remain a child, or is it a greater adventure, after all, to grow up...and, possibly, to become a pirate? Other Oceans: Book Two of the Hook & Jill Saga carries readers to the high seas on Captain Hook's pirate ship. It's a study in loyalty -- what happens when the captain disappears? Other Islands: Book Three of the Hook & Jill Saga casts anchor on the Neverland, where the pirates and Indians interact. It's an examination of the forms of generosity. Jones plans five books in this highly acclaimed saga.

 

Hook & Jill: Book One of the Hook & Jill Saga: Wendy Darling learns. What appears to be good may prove otherwise, and what seems to be evil…is irresistible.

 

In this startling new vision of a cultural classic, Wendy intends to live happily ever after with Peter Pan. But Time, like this tale, behaves in a most unsettling way.

 

As Wendy mothers the Lost Boys in Neverland, they thrive on adventure. She struggles to keep her boys safe from the Island’s many hazards, but she finds a more subtle threat encroaching from an unexpected quarter…The children are growing up, and only Peter knows the punishment.

 

Yet in the inky edges of the Island, the tales Wendy tells to the Lost Boys come true. Captain Hook is real, and even the Wonderful Boy can’t defend his Wendy against this menace. Hook is a master manipulator, devising vengeance for his maiming. Insidious and seductive, Hook has his reasons for tempting Wendy to grow up.

 

Revenge is only the first.

 

Deepening the characters so artfully sketched by J.M. Barrie, Hook & Jill reveals the dark side of innocence at which Barrie hinted in the figure of Peter Pan. It brings alive a daring Wendy who asks questions and seeks truth; it delves into the man, Hook, the iconic villain. Striding from fairy-tale and thrusting into reality, Captain Hook becomes a frightening force indeed.

Other Oceans: Book Two of the Hook & Jill Saga:

Identify the weapon, and use it first. Such is the code of Captain James Hook, in this lyrical sequel to Hook & Jill. And this time, the turmoil begins not with ‘The Boy,’ but with a girl.

 

Ten days out of Neverbay, Hook and Jill capture a ship’s surgeon, pressing him to join the Roger. But Doctor Hanover is a gentleman, with a daughter to defend. When Red-Handed Jill shows him favor, his heart is taken prisoner, too. Hanover contrives to deliver Jill from the pirate king, and to redeem her to society, as his wife.

 

But Captain Hook is impossible to escape. Other rivals contend for Jill’s red hand, and Hook fights for supremacy with his skill and brilliance. When the doctor’s daughter draws Hook’s eye, she emulates Jill, using feminine weapons to charm him.

 

With no word of farewell, Hook vanishes, and Jill is a queen without a king. To hold Hook’s power, she must come to terms with each of the dangerous men in her domain. When a challenger seizes command of the Roger— and over Jill— Hook and Jill’s dominion will be overthrown unless, as Hook has taught Jill to do, she can identify the weapon, and wield it wickedly.

 

Other Oceans is an unabashed study in loyalty, vibrant with the dynamics of power. From the pen of a masterful crafter, Book Two of the Hook & Jill Saga delivers all the exhilaration that a clash of wills, hearts, and fortune can arouse.

Man, I need this book. I have read the first and second. This is on my to-do list for sure. I am actually rereading the second book. (There will be spoliers ahead! So spolier alert!) I just came to the part where Hook is stuck in chains (but hey, loyal Irish Smee found him), Hanover or Heinrich (also Cecco) is trying to win Jill's heart and Tom Tootles is trying to also win over Liza but not fully successful at that; since dear little Liza is fully under the spell of entrancement due to seeing Hook. Every second of this book is stocked with details and twists/turns that leave you hanging on the edge. I can imagine each setting and person to their very last detail. Having the small hit of the backstory for our gipsy friend Cecco really made the story that much more beautiful to read and I love the addition of the French commander in the story. He is just perfect (especially when he hate the drink at the party). Having reread this story will catching every detail is very beautiful. The first book was also really incredible; with Hook making the lost boys (and Wendy or Jill) transform into adults, the hints about the native's culture, Peter being himself (with hits of darkness to him) and Tink learning to get over Peter (and becoming Jewel). I did notice the hint in Hook's backstory about his youth that there was a golden-haired boy and I first thought it was Peter. That fact was later confirmed and my gosh; it was beautiful. Thank you, Andrea for writing this book and sorry for the long comment....guess it turned into a review. (Edited)

I love this series! So happy there is another!
