New Release + Double Review: Venom by Dee Garcia

Title: Venom
Series: The Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Dee Garcia
Genre: Dark PNR/UF
Release Date: October 15, 2019

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 I’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 I’ll have Hook to thank for that.


It’s no secret I always despised Peter Pan.
A common threat amongst the factions, I should’ve killed him when I had the chance, long before he sank his claws deep into Tinksley’s heart.
But his death at my hands wasn’t what the plan called for, despite how I felt for her.
I’d always been drawn to the girl, innocently enough at first…until that vile abomination marked her with his stamp, unleashing a sense of propriety I had no rights to.
Didn’t matter—he had her…and I wanted her.
Then like magic, he disappeared.
I thought my time had come, but the road to owning Tinksley’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.

Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

I’ll start off by saying I have never been a fan of Peter Pan. I know, shocking since I love fairytales. But Peter Pan has been one that I never got in to. That being said, Dee Garcia has made me a huge Tink and Hook fan! She took something that wouldn’t have normally interested me and made me fall head over heels in love with her dark retelling of it. I live for Venom. It kept me enraptured the entire time, and I was so sad to see “the end”. The way she created Tinksley awes me. Instead of an annoying little pixie, she turned her into something that starts off as naive and innocent and twists her into a hot damn badass. And the Hook? Swoon. I flove the freaking Hook. His dark and wonton thoughts of Tinksley and then seeing them as a reality? Be still my heart. He was perfection, cruel yet just.

Venom is a retelling all should read. To see the metamorphosis that Tink goes through? Absolutely twistedly brilliant. Add in the lies, secrets, lust, and Hook? 5 hot damn stars every time.


Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

HOLY SMOKE!!! This book is everything and more. I’m gonna be honest I didn’t know how I was going to feel about this story. I am a HUGE Disney fan, and thought I would have a hard time reading this. I was absolutely wrong in thinking that since I love my stories that are dark and twisty… Venom is almost as twisty as they come!!!!
Tinksley started off a naive young pouty woman. I’m not gonna lie I did not want to like her. However, I fell in love with the woman she becomes. She is a young naive beautiful soul in the beginning, but turns into a kick a$$ woman who rights the wrong that was made against her. Captain is just as dastardly as you would think. BUT there is so much more to this man. He is a tortured soul that was lost until he found the other half of his soul. The two of them together is a nice spicy slow burn.
The way Dee Garcia wrote this story will have you on the edge of your seat. I was captivated from beginning to end. The storyline is fast paced, and will keep you intrigued.



Don’t do it, Tinksley. Turn around, says the angel on my shoulder, a voice I’d forgotten existed amidst the demands of depravity.

Do I listen? Of course not.

I have to know what’s happening. I’m too intrigued not to.

An intrigue that continues amounting as I pass this hand-carved archway with thick spiraled pillars. The pillars themselves aren’t what draws me—it’s the marionette puppets hanging off each one. They’re both female; one blonde, one brunette, both surprisingly quite scantily clad unlike a typical puppet.

I’ve never seen one like this before.

Reaching out to graze the tips of my fingers over one of their wooden bodies, I—

“Boo!” a husky voice ghosts in my ear.

My heart shoots up to my throat as a terrified scream breaks free. Next thing I know, I’m spun around, staring into amused blue eyes.

I literally feel myself deflate in his grip before I can react accordingly.


“What the f*ck!” I shout, wiggling myself free.

Callan chuckles darkly and shakes his head, crossing his arms over his chest. “Look at you. So crass these days.”

I mimic his stance. “What can I say? I learned from the best. You’ve got one helluva sailor’s mouth yourself.”

“I’m not a sailor, love.” He smirks. “A pirate? Yes. The Captain? Obviously. Not a sailor, though.”

Dee Garcia is a voracious fan of romance novels and a long time lover of the written word. Her mission is to craft unique, compelling stories that will give her readers a place to briefly escape the trials and tribulations of everyday reality. With headstrong heroine’s who don’t need a man to stand on their own two feet, Dee hopes to leave her mark in the Indie world, one plot twist at a time.
