DUST by Kara Swanson, Reviewed by Kim

First off, can we just take a second to look at this gorgeous cover? The cover alone made me want to buy this book! And I’m so happy to say that what’s inside is just as good as what’s outside! I really really enjoyed this story and I’m not a huge Peter Pan fan either, but I loved the writing style and Kara Swanson’s take on Peter Pan!
Where to start! I was immediately drawn to Claire. I felt for what she had been through throughout her life and the grief she was feeling about her missing twin brother. I was so excited when she finally got a lead on what happened to him and we flew off to London where she meets Peter and Tiger Lily and Hook and the pixies! I loved the pixies!! 

I loved when Claire and Peter were with them because of the feeling of warmth and light that exuded off the page! Peter was charming and immensely likable, but he was also hiding something that kept me intrigued till the end of this story. Speaking of the end, I kind of need book 2 right now because I totally did not see that coming!

This is such a great YA fantasy! It is a bit darker than the original, but I highly recommend it! I can’t wait for book 2 to see what happens next.
*I bought this book and was under no obligation to provide a positive review. The faith element is light- (2) 


BackCover Blurb:
The truth about Neverland is far more dangerous than a fairy tale.

Claire Kenton believes the world is too dark for magic to be real—since her twin brother was stolen away as a child. Now Claire’s desperate search points to London... and a boy who shouldn't exist.

Peter Pan is having a beastly time getting back to Neverland. Grounded in London and hunted by his own Lost Boys, Peter searches for the last hope of restoring his crumbling island: a lass with magic in her veins.

The girl who fears her own destiny is on a collision course with the boy who never wanted to grow up. The truth behind this fairy tale is about to unravel everything Claire thought she knew about Peter Pan—and herself.
