Hickman’s new novel, The HOOK, is the second book in The PAN Trilogy, a young adult romance series that reimagines the fairy tale of Peter Pan with a sci-fi twist. The first book in the series, The PAN, follows an eighteen-year-old orphan named Vivienne who discovers she possesses the rare Nevergene, making her part of Peter Pan’s gang of immortal teenagers.   

Vivienne can either leave her life behind and escape to Neverland’s Kensington Academy with a handsome recruiter who claims he can fly or risk becoming a human lab rat for H.O.O.K.—a group of scientists determined to discover the Nevergene’s secrets by any means necessary.  

The PAN is a story of found family, secret societies, first love, high-flying shenanigans, and the downsides of immortality.  

The HOOK continues Vivienne’s journey as she navigates a new relationship and a devastating diagnosis—she’s destined to become one of the forgetful PAN. When she ignores a cardinal rule and one of her fellow PAN pays the ultimate price, Vivienne must face the consequences of her actions and decide if living forever is worth forgetting everything.   

The HOOK is a story filled with drama, romance, and secrets.    

The third and final instalment, The CROC, is set to release on July 14, 2021. The stunning conclusion follows Vivienne and her fellow PAN as they search desperately for a cure to save the forgetful while H.O.O.K. proves they are willing to go to deadly lengths to get what they want.  

For a limited time, you can read The PAN and The HOOK for FREE on Kindle Unlimited. Both books are also available to order via Amazon and Book Depository. The CROC is available for pre-order now.
