The Never King by Nikki St. Crowe

GENRE: Fantasy, Retellings, Reverse Harem, Dark, Fae | LENGTH: 192 Pages

Hello my spooky babies. I hope you all are having a fabulous day. Todays review is going to be completely different than what I normally do. Today, we are getting spicy. Yes, that's right. We are going into the dark sexy world of dark reverse harem retellings. I saw this book on Instagram quite a bit, and I honestly thought it was going to be a horror retelling of Peter Pan. I was quite wrong. But holy shit I am so glad I took the plunge. So, let's discuss shall we?


For the past two centuries, the women in the Darling family have been stolen from their homes on their 18th birthdays. They never know how long they will be gone. Sometimes a couple days, and sometimes even a couple months. But, when they return they are never the same and have a history of going mad. So when Winnie Darling's 18th birthday arrives her mom is determined to do everything she can to keep her safe. Deep down they nothing would work. Nothing would keep him from taking another Darling. Now Winnie is about to learn that pirates, fairies, and magic truly exist, and that it is all much darker than she could ever imagine.

This book got me all kinds of hot and bothered. I have no idea if this is considered erotica or not, but goddamn whatever it is, I want more. Winnie is such a force to be reckoned with. She takes what she has and is so skilled at using it to her advantage. This is such a good retelling of Peter Pan, especially with the hot ass sex thrown all around. Vane had me sweating a little bit there. I can't help but be jealous of Winnie. I was definitely squirming in my seat while reading this. I could not put this book down! And that damn cliffhanger of an ending... WHEW. I know its only a couple weeks away, but I do not know how I am going to wait until the 26th of April for the 2nd book to come out. I am so excited to see what St. Crowe has in store for us!

Overall Rating: 9/10
