From the moment I befriended him, I set a conspiracy in motion.
A revolution.
Kill Peter Pan.
And I was their ultimate weapon.
I was also none the wiser, falling hopelessly and irrevocably in love with him as the years went by.
Just as they hoped I would.
But their plan comes to a screeching halt when Peter vanishes into thin air, something Iโ€™ll learn has nothing to do with Rosewood at all.
You see, Peter never truly loved me…because he loved a wench instead.
He lied to me, he used me, he left me, and he broke me.
Forever altering me in ways that incite revenge when Hook sweeps in with revelations and the ultimate truth.
Peter may have turned his back on me, but in the end, he and his precious little Wendy will choke on every last tear I once shed.
And Iโ€™ll have Hook to thank for that.


Itโ€™s no secret I always despised Peter Pan.
A common threat amongst the factions, I shouldโ€™ve killed him when I had the chance, long before he sank his claws deep into Tinksleyโ€™s heart.
But his death at my hands wasnโ€™t what the plan called for, despite how I felt for her.
Iโ€™d always been drawn to the girl, innocently enough at firstโ€ฆuntil that vile abomination marked her with his stamp, unleashing a sense of propriety I had no rights to.
Didnโ€™t matterโ€”he had her…and I wanted her.
Then like magic, he disappeared.
I thought my time had come, but the road to owning Tinksleyโ€™s heart comes with a price.
A price so dark and depraved it strips her of her purity and awakens the beast within.
All because of the truth.
Sometimes, there is honor in revenge, and it will be my utmost pleasure to watch as Peter Pan finally meets his maker.
His maker who will soon be my Queen.

Confessions 4 1_2 Stars

โ Can I keep you, Tinksley? As my finest treasure?โž

Venom by Dee Garcia is the first standalone in a series of interconnected standalone from the Sinister Fairy Tale Collections! Venom is a dark and twisted retelling of Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, & the infamous Captain Hook BUT this time around, the good guys aren’t such good guys, and the bad guys are even badder! I’m not a huge PNR reader but once I saw that there were quite a few lovely ladies that I ALWAYS one-click, I knew this was a series that I couldn’t pass up!

In Venom we aren’t in Neverland, no. We are in Rosewood with Captain ‘Callum’ Hook, Tinksley, and Peter Pan.

Welcome to the mythical, magical realm of Rosewood!

Venom by Dee Garcia Teaser

โ Forgive me, Tinksley. When it’s all said and done, please forgive me. It was the only way.โž

Captain ‘Callum’ Hook, my oh my this was a totally different Captain Hook then we have all met in the past. For starters, he doesn’t actually have a hook, BUT he IS a vampire pirate! Crazy, I know right?! But trust me, it all makes sense and you are going to LOVE it! Captain Callum has left his pirating ways and now runs Rosewood.

โ Where she’s purity and light, I’m maleficence and darkness.โž

Tinksley Bell is a beautiful young half-ling. A.K.A a fairy and a fae had a baby and that baby is Tinksley! She is the definition of innocence BUT, Tinksley isn’t as “innocent” as everyone thinks she is. She’s sassy, impulsive, and completely reckless and she is SICK of everyone treating her like a child. So in her quest to rebel, she slowly but surely falls for Peter Pan…

โ I really am that broken now. As mangled as he left my heart.โž

But Peter isn’t the guy that Tinksley thinks he is. It’s a mystery to everyone as to how Peter ended up in Rosewood, to begin with, and while the rest of the community keeps their distance, Tink continues to fall for his smooth lines and charming boyish features. Completely blinding her to Hook’s feelings for her.

But with a greater plan at play, Hook has to sit back, wait, and watch while Peter breaks poor Tinksley’s heart. But then he will get his chance to help Tinksley put her pieces back together… only BETTER than ever before. Hook has had feelingsย for Tinksley for a very long time but with Peter holding her captivated she didn’t SEE him the way he hasย ALWAYS seenย her.

โ He had her… and I wanted her. And it’s been that way ever since.โž

But sooner rather than later… Hook will finally get his chance.

โ I’m not above taking, shamelessly so. Have stolen many a treasure over the years. Trust me when I say I know what valuable looks like. And that’s exactly what Tinksley is: the most valuable treasure of them all.โž

Venom Teaser 1

โ Tinksley is my time. And time is precious.โž

Mystery, betrayal, secrets, lies, lust, and love, top that with some mythical creatures and a dark twist on a childhood favorite, and you have the phenomenon that is VENOM! This isn’t the Disney Peter Pan that we all know and love, ohhhh noooo! This is the dark Venom Now Live And Teaser ImageADULT version of the childhood favorite.ย  Just be ready, because this is as far from the original story as you can get. All the same characters are here but the story its self and the persona of the characters are COMPLETELY different! Absolutely unique and original, and unlike anything I’ve ever read before.

In Act One, I wasn’t sure how I felt about Tinksley. She wasn’t my favorite character, unfortunately. In Act Two I started feeling a bit different, she went through sooo much and my heart was breaking for her. In Act Three, HOLY SHIT! Tinksley went from cute and innocent to completely FIERCE and I loved watching her transformation throughout the book.

โ Show me, Hook. I want to see your little wonderland of debauchery.โž

Venom Teaser 2

Hook, GAHHH! What is there not to love about Callum Hook?!?! He was a brooding, intense, badass vampire. Both feared and adored by his subjects. who held a soft spot in his heart only for Tinksley. He was fiercely protective of her and although he ALWAYS wanted to claim her, he knew that she needed to figure things out by herself before he could swoop in and make her SEE him.

โ I’ve corrupted that little pixie with a singular swipe of my tongue.โž

The mysterious, forever young and adorable Peter Pan we all know and love is GONE! In his place is a vile boy who uses lies to get his way and hurt the one person who has Venom 3 Daysalways loved and been there for him.

Honestly, if I could have changed ANYTHING, it would have been that we would have gotten more time with Tink and Callum together as a couple. Most of the book was Tink heartbroken and then fighting her feelings for Hook and turning him down even though he had been nothing but good to her throughout. But, once they FINALLY got on the same page this book was ON FIRE! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅย I mean that table scene… SHEW! I know I was blushing even reading it, and I read DIRTYYYY books! I would have LOVED to see what other trouble these two could have gotten up to together…

โ I want to devour her, consume her, possess her, fucking own her.โž

The WOW moment… the whole catalyst for what was going to “trigger” Tinksley… I’m rarely ever completely surprised but HOLY SHIT I NEVER saw that coming!


The secondary/supporting characters were all VERY interesting and there were definitely a few that had me very intrigued. Mostly from Captain Hook’s crew, you’ll see Venom Teaser You Look So Beautiful On Your Kneeswhy once you read Venom but I am very excited to read their stories!

I absolutely adore Dee Garcia and have LOVED everything she has written so I was sooo excited to see how her first attempt at PNR turned out. THE GIRL KILLED IT!!! I was blown away and she did it WITHOUT completely changing up HERย style of writing, which I was extremely happy to see. The way she describes and sets scenes with her words, the way she crafts a visual picture in your mind… I can’t even put it into words. Absolutely amazing author.ย Garcia has set the bar pretty damn high with Venom being the start of this interconnected Sinister Fairy Tales Collection. If it is any indication of what’s to come then I can’t wait to see what the rest of these amazing authors have in store for usย as they retell these classic fairytales but with a dark twist and their own unique styles.

If you are a fan of the dark and twisted, and also love those old fairytales then you NEED to check out Venom! This is not one to be missed for sure! HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

โ Then start counting on forever, Tinksley Bell, because you’re my greatest treasure and there’s not a single thing within any realm on this earth that could make me let you go.โž

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ – Although a bit of a slow burn between the Captain and Tinksley, when they do catch fire they burnnnn!!! HOLY SHIT YA’LL, that table scene… SHEESH! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Donโ€™t do it, Tinksley. Turn around, says the angel on my shoulder, a voice Iโ€™d forgotten existed amidst the demands of depravity.
Do I listen? Of course not.
I have to know whatโ€™s happening. Iโ€™m too intrigued not to.
An intrigue that continues amounting as I pass this hand-carved archway with thick spiraled pillars. The pillars themselves arenโ€™t what draws meโ€”itโ€™s the marionette puppets hanging off each one. Theyโ€™re both female; one blonde, one brunette, both surprisingly quite scantily clad unlike a typical puppet.
Iโ€™ve never seen one like this before.
Reaching out to graze the tips of my fingers over one of their wooden bodies, Iโ€”
โ€œBoo!โ€ a husky voice ghosts in my ear.
My heart shoots up to my throat as a terrified scream breaks free. Next thing I know, Iโ€™m spun around, staring into amused blue eyes.
I literally feel myself deflate in his grip before I can react accordingly.
โ€œWhat the f*ck!โ€ I shout, wiggling myself free.
Callan chuckles darkly and shakes his head, crossing his arms over his chest. โ€œLook at you. So crass these days.โ€
I mimic his stance. โ€œWhat can I say? I learned from the best. Youโ€™ve got one helluva sailorโ€™s mouth yourself.โ€
โ€œIโ€™m not a sailor, love.โ€ He smirks. โ€œA pirate? Yes. The Captain? Obviously. Not a sailor, though.โ€
