I love this series but I hate how Peter's friends outgrow him that'd be horrible. ( )

Background: The continuation of Peter and the Starcatchers and Peter and the Shadow Thieves. Peter and the Secret of Rundoon chronicles the adventures of Peter, Molly, and George as they attempt to save the world and starstuff from the Others. They are on their way to Rundoon to defeat the Others and all the while the island is under attack from another evil force.

Review: I love these stories. I think Peter Pan is a wonderful tale and Dave Berry does a great job giving us more of its background and story. Why Peter can fly and the other Lost Boys cannot and the history of the pirates and the island. It is an adorable story with adventure and escape! Great read/ listen for the summer times months. Light and fun, normally for a younger audience but enjoyable for all. I think that this was supposed to be the conclusion to the Starcatchers series but, there is another volume: Peter and the Sword of Mercy and I think another after that...

Another fine installment to the series and better, in some ways than number two. Maybe a few too many deus ex machina, but what do you expect with pirates, mad scientists, large hungry snakes, and shadow monsters. A fitting conclusion to the trilogy yet it ended in a way that allowed a fan induced fourth book to come about. Highly recommended. ( )

Book three in the Peter and the Starcatchers series, a Peter Pan prequel that gives us a very different version of the familiar tale, one involving secret societies and magical meteorites. (It mostly makes sense in context, honest.)

I was very much charmed by the first book in this series, which gives us Peter's origin story, but I found the second disappointingly dull by comparison. I'm thinking that maybe I was just in entirely the wrong mood at the time, though, because this third book was pleasant enough. A bit overlong, perhaps, and I did find myself rolling my eyes at the bad guy's "Let me tell you my evil plan!" speech. But basically it was a decent kids' fantasy/adventure story, with a good (if slightly out-there) plot, a lot of action, and some really nice illustrations. I do remember saying, after reading the first book, that it struck me as one of those stories that can be enjoyed equally well by children or adults. I think I've changed my mind about that a little; while I found it mildly diverting, I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more when I was nine.

Rating: Adult me is stingily inclined to give it a 3.5/5 -- meaning it was OK, but didn't entirely do it for me -- but my inner child is insisting it deserves a higher rating than that. And since said inner child is closer to the book's intended audience, I suppose I really ought to listen to her. So I'll call it a 4/5. ( )

In this action-packed finale to the Starcatchers series, Peter and Molly find themselves in the dangerous land of Rundoon, ruled by an evil king who enjoys watching his pet snake consume those who displease him. But that’s just the beginning of problems facing our heroes, who once again find themselves pitted against the evil shadow-creature Lord Ombra in a struggle to save themselves, not to mention the planet. It’s a wild desert adventure, with rockets, carpets, and camels all flying through the air, zooming toward an unforgettable climax...
