Wednesday's Favorites: Hook by K.R. Thompson



Welcome to Maureen's Books Wednesday's Favorites. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is ‘Hook’ by K.R. Thompson, a book I read in January 2015.

Archie Jameson sat in the dark corners of the print shop, dreaming of adventure. Today, it found him.

Caught in a chilly October storm, he ducked into a tavern, hoping to escape the rain. What he found, was a room teeming with pirates. Shanghaied by the most elderly of the lot, Archie found himself serving on a ship captained by the fiercest pirate ever to sail the seven seas--the man known as Blackbeard.

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.

Discover the untold story of the man who became Captain Hook.

Praise for 'Hook':


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’s story-telling is simply amazing! I found myself rooting for the misunderstood pirates, who, in spite of their wicked ways, had a code of honor that they never broke.

HOOK turns out to be an engaging, five-star story with vivid, interesting characters. This version gives an enlightening view of how Captain Hook emerged, as well as an explanation for the animosity between Peter and Hook.

I really enjoyed this story, it wasn’t as ‘amazing’ as I hoped it would be, but it was still a great read. Like I said before, it’s very difficult to write a story about characters who are known around the world so my expectations where much too high. But this story was not disappointing, it was enjoyable and if you are a fan of Captain Hook you will definitely like this one.
