Readers' Favorite 5 Star Seal for "Hook's Little Mermaid"

Rather a long time ago I had submitted "Hook's Little Mermaid" to Readers' Favorite in the hopes that I might get a review.

To be honest, I thought there was no chance someone would decide to look at my book, with all the amazing authors out there.  But thankfully, someone did!

Here's her review:

Reviewed By Liz Konkel for Readers’ Favorite

Hook’s Little Mermaid by Suzanna Lynn is a fun take on the classic story of Peter Pan. Everyone knows the story of Captain Hook and Peter Pan. Lynn spins the tale of Jameson Shaw as he searches for the boy Peter Pan who’s responsible for the death of his son. Jameson Shaw goes up against several obstacles as he makes his way to Neverland, including kidnapping and making a deal with a fairy, meeting Red Riding Hood, and fighting off a Kraken. With the aid of a fairy, it seems that his revenge against Pan will become a reality. His journey encounters several surprise turns when he meets the mermaids of Neverland and learns the truth of his son’s death.

As a fan of Peter Pan and J.M. Barrie, I love finding different ways of adapting the story into something new. I love Hook’s Little Mermaid! It’s perfect for any lover of fairytales. Suzanna Lynn takes threads of what we know of the tale and flips it all into a new direction. Picking up the traces of other fairytales is a fun treat for those who adore the classic tales. Knowing that Red’s story is the center of book two makes me wonder what other stories will be explored. The red cloak was a quick giveaway to Red Riding Hood. A glass coffin reminds Hook of a realm called Fairest which has a wicked witch that cursed a girl to sleep. A mermaid has legs when she comes ashore. Lynn has created a rich world full of potential and twists. Hook is fun, a fairytale for a new generation and a delightful take on old classics.
