Archie Jameson sat in the dark corners of the print shop, dreaming of adventure.

Through a series of thrilling twists, Archie finds himself captain of another of Blackbeard's ships, the Jolig Roger. In an attempt to flee danger, his ship becomes lost under stars never before seen.

Determined to save both his crew and the woman he loves, Archie will make decisions that will forever seal his fate.

Book Review


 When I heard about "Hook" I was intrigued. You see, I am not a big fan of pirates and didnt quite like Captain Hook in the movies so when I heard that this book told the story of how a normal boy later became Captain Hook, I thought maybe reading the book would make me understand and like this character better. So I did just that and I am happy to say that now I like Hook better and understand his actions more.

The cover of "Hook" is beautiful and it made me want to read this story and go feel the dangers and mysteries of pirates and the sea. The blurb is also very crisp and will definitely attract readers.

This is a difficult book to write. So much has already been shown and written about Captain Hook that it must have been really challenging for the author to plan a new story that would interest readers. Kudos to K.R Thompson for accomplishing this successfully. The plot is expertly conceived and very admirably executed.

The characterization is so life like that it felt like I was there and could see these characters in action. Captain Hook's transition from a naive young man who was a dreamer to the famous Captain who was brave and a legend is so beautifully brought to life in this book.

The story flows fluidly and the scenes are vividly narrated. The book kept me engrossed and interested till the very end and left me satisfied with the ending. K.R Thompson's writing style is vivid and colourful. She made me see her story in technicolour and I enjoyed every second of it. It felt like I was there braving the sea, walking among the dangerous pirates, feeling the thrill of adventure and dreaming about things that looked like fantasy.

All in all, Hook is a well written, entertaining book that had me enjoying the time I spent reading it. It had the potential to be even more amazing but still, it was great. 4 out of 5 to it and recommended to all fans of Captain Hook and readers who love adventure, mystery , fairy tales and sea legends. Go relive the thrill of the life of a pirate and have fun! 

K.R. Thompson is a talented writer and I am so happy to have met her. I am surely going to checkout her future books.

I received an ARC from the author and the tour organizers and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
