Beauty, Blood and Peter Pan

by Satyros Phil Brucato, Witches&Pagans

Monday, August 22, 2011

"My highest recommendations and regards to Hook & Jill, a potent tale of mastery and maturation. Beyond homage, beyond pastiche, beyond Neverland itself, this book sails dark and sensuous sea… Hook & Jill is a masterwork of enduring power." – Satyros Phil Brucato, Witches&Pagans

A new take on Peter Pan

by Amy Hauck Nelson, The Bismarck Tribune

Friday, October 2, 2009

"Andrea Jones is a masterful storyteller, weaving a compelling tale.…You will be shocked. You will be thrilled. Whatever the outcome, you will be entertained." – The Bismarck Tribune

The Neverland of Hook & Jill is not the place of fancy-free fun and abandon many of us like to recall. Jones explores Wendy's feminine power, Hook's duality, and the various dimensions of the Lost Boys. This is not your nursery room Pan. – Brooks Sigler, author of Five Finger Fiction

 

Never growing up only sounds good until you grow up a little. Hook & Jill is an original take on the fairy tale of Peter Pan and Neverland. Taking place after the events of the classic fairytale, Hook & Jill has Wendy acting as a mother to the Lost Boys — but when Hook returns, Wendy is faced with the dark, more adult reality of growing up, and she is split between her childhood innocence and the joys of adulthood. Hook & Jill is fine spin on the classic, and very much recommended. – Susan Bethany, Midwest Book Review

Revising the Neverland Can Be Done

by Peter Von Brown

Monday, August 31, 2009

"Jones has created a fantastic companion piece to Sir J.M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy. She reenters the Neverland, quite obviously knowing her way around.…Every twist and surprise is balanced by an exceptional use of the original." – Peter Von Brown, author of Peter Pan's Neverworld

Edgy and heretical…The sacred icon of childhood has finally grown up, and controversy and cultural debate must follow. What The DaVinci Code did for mystery-thriller, Hook & Jill does for the fairy tale. – Michael Neff, author of Year of the Rhinoceros

Striking accord with the Captain's philosophy, this tale knows no shame. – Stephan Solberg, author of The Last of One

If you'd like to read another story inspired by Barrie's work, that delves deeper into the mysteries Barrie touches upon, take note of this book. Hook & Jill is an amazingly insightful Jungian allegory. Jones not only questions the original version's assumption that prolonging childhood is desirable, but explores the dark side of Peter's character and develops the characters of Wendy and Captain Hook in ways I would not have imagined. It is shocking, then riveting, and I am in awe of her imagination and subtlety. The reader comes away wanting more, and happily, a series will be published. Understand, though, that the content of Jones' work is very definitely grounded in themes of adult life, so as Hook might say, "Readers, ye be warned." – Deena Sherman, Sun-Times News Group
