The origin of Peter Pan and Tigerlilja, a companion novella to the Tales of the Wendy series.
One, cursed by accident. The other, cursed by destiny. But losing everything isn’t always the end. Sometimes, it’s just the beginning.
Tigerlilja is a brand new companion novella to The Wendy. (Have you read it? If not you should, I’ll wait …) And it is fantastic!
Its a quick, short read and so, so worth it.
We are introduced to Tigerlilja as a small child, as her grandmother is telling her the story of how she was chosen for something special. I won’t go into too much detail because this is a short book and it would be way too easy to spoil, but lets just sat Tigerlilja is a total badass from a young age.
The story is told in a way that reminds me of an old folk tale, which in a way, I suppose it is. This tale gives you a bit of backstory, as well as taking you on a life changing adventure for our characters.
Seeing Tigerlilja, who is rather pragmatic about things, interact with the childish likes of Peter Pan was just so much fun.
We learn how Peter Pan and Tink met, how Peter came to be who he is (I adore his backstory, definitely my favorite part) how Tigerlilja becomes who she is destined to be (she’s awesome!) as well as a few other surprises.
I dare you not to reach for the tissues.
Here’s hoping Tigerlilja makes an appearance in book two of The Wendy!
