Publisher's Summary

With his long black curls, a shadowy family tree, and an affinity for pet spiders, James Matthew bears little resemblance to his starched-collar, blue-blooded peers at Eton. Dubbed King Jas., he stops at nothing to become the most notorious underclassman in the prestigious school's history. For James, sword fighting, falling in love with an Ottoman Sultana, and challenging the Queen of England are all in a day's skullduggery. But when he sets sail on a ship with a mysterious mission, King Jas.' dream of discovering a magical island quickly turns into an unimaginable nightmare. Screenwriter J.V. Hart traces the evolution of J.M. Barrie's classic villain from an eccentric outcast to the scourge of Neverland.

Brilliant!!

Great story, great narrator! After loving Peter Pan, i never thought i would like Captain Hook! This story tells you the first part of his life, how he became "Capt. J Hook", and why he's not particularly fond of the "Darlings". I'm looking forward to the next book!

Loved it

I loved this book. It gave me a whole new way to interpret Hook.
I would love to read another story about Hook like this.
