Inhaltsangabe: Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller's son. But one night, while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children's nursery, and dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning into Neverland, an intoxicating island of freedom.
As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy's paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter's grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her, have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare."

"Oakes continues to weave literary magic as she pulls you down the rabbit hole into a Wonderland like you've never read before. Experience the world anew as you learn how a young princess becomes the villainous Queen of Hearts."
Chanda Hahn, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the "Unfortunate Fairy Tale" series
"Oakes skillfully portrays Dinah s inevitable toughening as she realizes that sometimes there are no right choices and the only options are bad and worse. [ ] This installment engagingly shows Dinah shifting further toward becoming the infamous Queen of Hearts, but it also portrays her as a likable human being at least, so far. Fans of the first volume will devour this book and eagerly await the finale."
Kirkus Reviews
"While "The Crown" focused on the events leading up to Dinah s escape from her father s palace, "The Wonder" explores everything that happened in the wake of her rebelliousness. For those that enjoyed Dinah s wilder side from the first book, this sequel will bring you more of what you want."

"Fans of Frank Beddor s "The Looking Glass Wars" will lose themselves in Colleen Oakes s dark vision of Wonderland, which challenges everything Alice fans thought it was and takes readers on the Queen of Hearts journey from adolescence to off with their heads

"Wendy Darling tries to be a proper young lady despite her forbidden romance with a bookseller's son. Yet when a strange, beautiful, flying (!) youth tempts her and her younger brothers to abandon stodgy Edwardian London, she yields to long-suppressed yearnings for adventure. Described in lush, lingering detail, Neverland is all that Peter Pan promises: vibrant, gorgeous, filled with magic and excitement. But it also harbors unexpected dangers...perhaps none greater than Peter himself. While she is initially intoxicated by his charisma, Wendy's practical good sense, stubborn loyalty, and newly liberated fire give her the courage to defy Peter...only to land, in a stunning cliffhanger, in even worse peril. Dark, even horrific in its graphic bloodshed and psychological menace; but the nuanced portrayals of a hero frequently excused by his whimsical glamour and a heroine too often dismissed as girlishly insipid are riveting. (Fantasy. 14 & up)"
Kirkus Reviews
"This Peter Pan story may sound familiar, but the tale takes a darker turn when the children arrive on Pan Island in Neverland. The longer they stay on the island, the harder they find it to remember their former lives. It soon becomes apparent that Peter, far from a naive boy who won t grow up, is a cunning, manipulative leader. This is Neverland crossed with William Golding s Lord of the Flies; there is jealousy, anger, maliciousness, and death. And this Peter Pan is a young man who has his sinister sights set on Wendy. When she begins to remember her past and expresses a desire to return home, Peter turns cruel and abusive. During the rest of the action-packed novel, she tries to escape him and the dangers of the island with her brothers in tow. VERDICT A dark twist on a familiar tale that readers will have difficulty putting down."
School Library Journal
We are all familiar with the story of Peter Pan, whether from J.M. Barries original 1911 novel or the many film versions it inspired. Oakes tale, told form Wendy s point of view, breathes new life into Peter s story and makes it her own. This Neverland is far more mesmerizing and dangerous than Barries, and I was pulled in by the lyrical writing. Every time I opened the cover, I felt completely transported into Wendy s world. The perilous call of the mermaids, Tinker Bell s violent obsession with Peter, sinister Captain Hook all compelling reasons to read Wendy Darling.
