children's fiction; adventure. Lively new telling of Peter Pan's beginning, makes great bedtime reading (I fell asleep easily, but also wanted to know what happened next--glad to know there are many more in this series). ( )

Another good listening tale, but starting to feel far-fetched and also no longer matches up smoothly with the Peter Pan original story. Kids still enjoyed it and kept us all entertained for 6 hours in the car. Good still trumps evil with lots of twists and turns -- but often felt too drawn out, especially in moments of high intensity. ( )

This was a great continuation to the Starcatchers series. While I loved reading about the pre-history of Peter Pan was we know the story, it’s nice to have everything come full circle and for Wendy to finally by the main character.

You definitely need to read the previous books in the series in order to fully understand what’s going on and appreciate all the characters involved. It draws heavily from the backstory established in the first few books. As always, the authors perfectly hit on the creepy and horror factor for the bad guys–these villains are legitimately scary; and it’s fun to see them in comparison to bumbling, hopeless Captain Hook. I love how the authors play with the idea of what a villain is in that way. The stakes are also absurdly high and beloved characters are put into dire, impossible situations.

I also really enjoyed the dynamic between grown-up George and grown-up Molly; while Molly still has a bit of her adventurous spirit, George has thoroughly become a boring adult and acts as one of the obstacles Wendy has to overcome in order to get to Peter and try to save her mother, which was excellent. Wendy is a great main character: smart, resourceful, and more daring than she has any right to be.

The story itself meanders a bit and could have been cut down to keep up the action, but other than that, it’s thoroughly enjoyable. A good amount of time is spent with each of the timelines; I like that we have something happening in Neverland and England at the same time.

I’m interested to see what the next book holds. This book ended on a nice note of having everything be resolved, while also keeping a few things open, such as Wendy’s future relationship with Peter. If you enjoyed the previous books in the series, you’ll definitely enjoy this one!

Twenty years after the Peter and the Starcatchers trilogy ends, Molly and George darling are married, living in London with their three children, Wendy, Michael and John. They haven't seen Peter since they left Mollusk Island all those years ago. Lord Aster is frail and dying, Molly is focused entirely on raising her children, and George is a distinguished businessman who has put all the adventure and magic he experienced in his youth behind him. But in this follow-up to the trilogy, it turns out that Lord Ombra was not in fact killed in the rocket explosion that ended the series. He was greatly weakened, but in the course of 20 years he has now returned.

This book follows two relatively separate plot lines. In one, Wendy Darling follows in her mother's footsteps, recruiting Peter to once again come to the aid of her family and the world at large. Her parents have vanished, and a sinister man who has the King's ear is intent on some mysterious project. Peter gets to London and the two children handle things on that end. The second story involves the efforts of Captain Nezzera and his shipload of thugs trying to gather the starstuff that fell on Mollusk Island. With Peter gone to London, it is up to Chief Fighting Prawn and his young daughter Shining Pearl to stop them.

A fine addition to the series, it is much like its predecessors: A plot heavy adventure yarn, full of daring plans, hideous villains, lives in danger, magic, and action. There is none of the introspective character study that is a primary feature of most young adult novels. It's all about the story, and if you enjoy books that are intended solely as entertainment, you should love this series. ( )

Probably the best since the first. Good ending to the series, though, I suppose if he wanted, he could continue. There are still some unanswereds. But overall, the writing, suspense, characters, all good stuff. Rebekah enjoyed it. Now on to a new series. ( )
