About the Book

Enter through the looking glass into Queens of Wonderland, Book Two in the Defenders of Lore series, in which Knights of the Round Vanessa and Michael must follow Captain Hook into Wonderland alongside Alice to crush his treacherous plan and deal with an ongoing war between power-hungry queens

After saving reality and overcoming the numerous challenges that Neverland threw at her, Vanessa has been tasked to save Michael Darling from himself: he’s grown obsessed in his role as a Knight of the Round and will stop at nothing to find the ghost of James Hook, nearly getting expelled from the Knights in the process. It’s up to Vanessa to keep him safe, she can’t lose her partner to Hook’s sword.

So together it’s off to Wonderland in pursuit of the pirate.

Except, unlike Neverland, neither Vanessa nor Michael have ever been there before. But someone they know has: the Lady who leads the Knights…who turns out to be none other than the legendary Alice. Her extensive knowledge about the land could change the game and bring them one step closer to finding Captain Hook…and in a world where games are taken quite seriously—and no less than six queens are vying for power—it will take them putting all their heads together to make it through.

Or they just might find them lopped off.

Critical Praise

"God of Neverland is an exciting mashup of ancient myth, modern storytelling, breakneck pacing, and wonderful imagination. I thoroughly enjoyed the book."   — Brandon Sanderson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Stormlight Archives

"God of Neverland is an ingenious idea that sparkles with a sense of wonder. A clever, witty, and engrossing story where the reader is swept along with discovery from scene to scene." — Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Dune: House Atreides

"Charming and inventive, God of Neverland updates and expands on the mythos of Peter Pan. Martinez sprinkles fairy dust on his readers, takes them by the hand, and flies them through a rollicking adventure."  — Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter

"Gama Ray Martinez puts a new spin on the familiar story of Peter Pan, and makes it wholly his own in a novel all about re-kindling a childhood sense of wonder, magic, and adventure that speaks to the power of imagination and storytelling." — A.C. Wise, author of Wendy, Darling

“Martinez puts an original twist on the classic characters…[Michael’s] journey is poignant and emotional, with a nostalgic familiarity and a ghostly twist that delivers something new to the story of Peter Pan. God of Neverland is a beautifully written reimagining of the boy who didn’t grow up as told through the eyes of a boy who did grow up.” — San Francisco Book Review

God of Neverland is a magic trick of a book—it evokes classic stories while creating a fascinating new narrative that is uniquely its own.”  — James A. Owen, author of Here, There Be Dragons

"A tale filled with wonder and charm and so much more. Gama Ray Martinez shows himself to be a worthy successor to J. M. Barrie. Grab a pinch of Pixie dust, and take a flight into the realm of imagination!" — David Farland, International bestselling fantasy author of The Runelords

"A fast-paced adventure...an action-packed fantasy." — Booklist
