Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I found myself oddly drawn into this story and involved enough to read it in just two sittings. Not too impressive considering the book runs to just 300 pages in total with large print and extremely generous line spacing.

If you're expecting Tiger Lily to stay true to the original Peter Pan you're going to be disappointed and even more so if you're expecting a glittery 'Disneyesque' production. This is a dark, atmospheric prequel narrated through the character of Tinkerbell who has moved so far away from her usual cute/innocent persona she's unrecognisable. Tinkerbell has morphed into a dark, feisty insect munching character with an obsessive interest in Tiger Lily while Neverland is a place of tribal infighting, bullying and suspicion.

Tiger Lily is a warrior girl of around 15, but in Neverland years much older, the plot follows her through a series of adventures which are pretty harsh and quite bleak. She's an absolute rebel who seems to enjoy her tough girl reputation as much as she enjoys conflict. As Peter Pan is slowly introduced into the story, he's now the leader of a particularly rough gang rather than a little boy who doesn't want to grow up, it's obvious Pan and Tiger Lily will be drawn together but their relationship is far from an innocent love story.

There are strong themes in this book ranging from religious conversion, hunting and male/female relationships but I couldn't say whether the book's being marketed at the YA or adult market as the style and content are quite ambiguous. It's true some of the themes are adult but they're written with a light hand that doesn't develop them far enough to cause offence.

Parts of this novel were superb and generally I enjoyed the whole shake up of the original concept. The ending was particularly good and there's enough dark romance, emotion and heartache throughout to make make Tiger Lily quite a memorable story.

Everything about the appearance and description of this book it seems is geared towards the wrong audience. If it hadn't been for Crowinator's review I would have written this off as another cheesy romance that's okay when you're eight years old and watching a disney film but should otherwise be avoided. There are a number of readers I can see picking this up: romance enthusiasts, those who enjoy novels that are like disney films, or those who've read Anderson's other books (girl scouts and teen troubles). They will probably be disappointed.

How best can I put this? I know, I'll use tv shows! Let's take 90210 first of all. This is a show about rich people, celebrities, first world problems and a lifestyle with glitter on it. It's about life in Los Angeles. You know what else is about life in LA? Angel (Buffy spin-off). But Angel tells a different story, one of dingy backstreets, prostitutes, drug addicts and criminals. It's the same city but it's the story of lives that don't sparkle. If you're wondering how this is at all relevant, well, Peter Pan is 90210, and Tiger Lily is Angel.

This novel tells the tale of the dark underbelly of Neverland where the good guys don't always win and love doesn't always triumph. It's so much darker and sadder than I could have possibly imagined. Even though we are told from the start that this is a love story, it is more than that. It's about loss and loneliness and fear of change. Because who would fear change more than those who'd never had to experience growing up and dying?

Tiger Lily is one of the loneliest characters ever. Her other tribe members believe her to be cursed and she has long battled against the torment of not quite being accepted.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a fabulous take on the story of Peter Pan and Tiger Lily, but for those who think of no not Peter Pan again, this is not the Disney Peter Pan or Tiger Lily that you know.

The book is set as a prequel in a sense to Peter Pan, and as we saw in the Disney movie, Peter was very fond of Tiger Lily and wanted to rescue her from Hook. Well this book plays to that theme a little and brings Peter Pan and Tiger Lily together in a relationship.

The story is told through the eyes of Tinkerbell, who whilst was a bit mischievous in the Disney Peter Pan, actually comes across as a bug like creature who can only communicate her emotion and opinion through nipping and buzzing around, but you can get to grips with her struggle between her own unrequited love/crush for Peter and her friendship with Tiger Lily, because after all who would notice a tiny fairy! She is a loyal little creature who sticks by Tiger Lily regardless of the lack of acknowledgement of her and their relationship is told through her eyes as an onlooker with feelings of her own..

However, gone is the Disney cuteness and in comes a dark and dangerous Neverland instead, where Pan's gang is essentially a street gang of teenage boys, with Pan a sullen and quite needy young adult and Tiger Lily, who was a little feisty in the original pan, is now even more feisty and independent and is in her own right a tough heroine who faces her own trials in Neverland, without the need to be rescued by anyone, especially not a boy.

I am sure the die hard fans of Disneys Peter Pan really would not like such a retelling of the characters as they are so far removed from the Disney world version, even Hook is quite a pathetically sad character really and it is Smee who is scarier and Wendy is barely acknowledged by Peter, let alone a love interest at all.

Be prepared for a whole new world with this one!
