  • The Navigator takes Barrie’s Peter Pan to a

    When I finished reading Book 1 of Tales of the Wendy several years ago, I remember how upset I was because, at the time, there was not yet any release date announced for the next book! I was staring at a bleak, tortuous landscape of never-ending years spent longing for the next book with no relief on the horizon. Knowing that may give you just a peak at how much I enjoyed “The Wendy” and how much I was looking forward to “The Navigator.” And let me tell you, Book 2 did FAR more than just not disappoint, it didn’t even just raise the bar. It took the bar and set sail with it into the skies of Neverland! I loved Book 1, but I could tell it was these authors’ first book. There were a few unpolished places here and there, some character interactions/dialog that didn’t feel quite realistic, and a bit of jerky pacing. Yet those were minor things when set against the delight and wonder of Sky and Brown’s masterful retelling of Peter Pan. This book? Flawless. From the story's whimsical and enthralling voice, to its delightfully lovable characters, fantastical world building, and beyond, I loved every part of this book. The only reason I didn’t stay up all night finishing it in one go is because I have a toddler with a penchant for rising at the crack of dawn and the days of sleeping in after an all-night book binge are long past. But I wanted to. Oh how I wanted to! I was wonderfully surprised at every turn, not only by the plot but also by the character’s choices and development. I had some guesses how things would go at the start of the book, based on the original story and my knowledge of fiction and story structure. But Sky and Brown took every expectation and twisted it around so that I was rushing through each page to find out what happened next even as I tried to slow down and savor the glorious prose and turns of phrase. Suffice it to say, if you liked “The Wendy” you will LOVE “The Navigator.” If Book 1 felt a bit rough in places and you’re wondering if you should try the next book, the answer is yes, yes, yes! You will not be disappointed (except when it comes to an end and we have to again wait long agonizing months/years for the sequel). Honestly, the highest praise I could ever imagine giving a book, I would give to “The Navigator": I can’t wait for my son to be old enough for me to read these books aloud to him. Not only because I can’t wait to experience the story again through his innocent delight, but also because the prose of this book is so wonderful, it just begs to be read aloud. I’ve made a home for these books on my shelf, and I look forward to reading them again and again over the years.

  • Even Better Than the First One!

    Holy Cow. I loved the first book in this series, The Wendy, but y'all The Navigator blows it out of the water. Cannon pun fully intended. It picks up right where the first one left off, with all of us sailing headlong into adventure. These writers excel at world building. Neverland was more than I could have hoped, absolutely magical. I loved how the land itself is connected to Peter and the explanations of how everything works. The way it provides a home and safe haven for those who need it most. And of course how nothing and no one is who or what you would expect them to be! So much imagination and just a fun and excellent interpretation of such a classic story. I can't wait for the next book!

  • It's beautiful, okay?

    Never thought I'd say this, but Captain Hook isn't that bad of a guy. Three cheers for Wendy changing his mind about lots of things I won't spoil but you could guess! I love the vivid descriptions of Neverland and all of the new characters we meet. We even get a backstory for Peter (I'm definitely going to read Tigerlilja), which is interesting and new to me. For a while I was worried that Peter would never take anything seriously, but I am glad to say that this is not the case! The authors have really made these characters their own. If you liked the first book, you'll like this one, too.

  • Engaging and entertaining

    Reviewed by Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite The Navigator by Erin Michelle Skye and Steven Brown is the second book in the Tales of the Wendy series. There's a price to changing destiny. No one else in the crew wants Wendy as the Navigator, but she's determined to prove her worth is more than being the only one that can work the magical compass. They spend their days chasing after French ships for capture which is how they make two shocking discoveries: they see a ship fly and they catch sight of the Everlost helping the French. Hook still doesn't trust her and even the crew doesn't seem to think she's competent enough to be on the ship. Peter Pan's whereabouts are still undetermined but she hopes that he's still finding a way to look out for her and that they'll see each other again soon, especially as Wendy navigates their way to Neverland. A new threat emerges on the horizon with Captain Blackheart at the helm and his growing army of Everlost. As if Blackheart wasn't threat enough, Hook has his own agenda and plans to dispose of Peter Pan once his mission is complete. This reimagining of JM Barrie's Peter Pan is stunning, engaging, and captivating with a story that takes you to new heights. Precise details went into the elegant writing style which reflects the tone of the original story. The dialogue sends you directly into this world and referring to her as the Wendy makes you feel like you've entered Neverland. The story contains little homages throughout that are reminders of the original story such as Tootles always missing everything and the mermaids, which Erin Michelle Skye and Steven Brown deliver in an original voice. Skye and Brown weave a few twists to bring the classic Neverland to life while also remaining true to the original elements of lost boys, pirates, and mermaids. The winged Everlost, imps, dragons, and sirens are woven into the story in new touches that give life to a classic story. Fighting at sea is still an intricate part of the story with Hook's crew chasing French ships, battles at sea, and the dreaded Captain Blackheart creating a new threat for them to face. Neverland is still an important element in the setting. Skye and Brown have delved further and expanded this unique world where the land creates a home for every creature that arrives and creates a place where no one ages past adulthood. The Navigator is a charming re-imagining of Peter Pan with a new spin on the classic story and an adventure that takes these characters to new heights by creating a new Neverland that you'll want to fly away to.
