Just like the first volume, a good story smothered by a lack of editing, focus or vocabularial variety. ( )

You should always drop mangoes on pirates that kidnap your buddies. ( )

I didn't realize until a little ways into reading this that it was the second in a series. I'll definitely have to read the first, and then some later ones.

The story is a rollicking fantasy/adventure, set in the world of Peter Pan, created by James Barrie (who himself makes a brief cameo appearance in this book.) Peter's Never Land Island is troubled by the villainous crew of a ship, which is led by an otherworldly spectral figure, Lord Ombra. When they leave, Peter stows away on their ship to get to London and warn his old friend Molly Aster, whom he has learned is in danger.

Molly and Peter try to foil the plans of Ombra and his nefarious crew, whose aim is to capture a trunk of "starstuff" which Molly's father is charged with returning to the heavens. If it falls into the hands of the Others, the entire world would be in danger. Aided by Tinker Bell, and by George Darling in the later third of the book, they have a thoroughly action packed adventure. ( )

The drop off is only slight if at all in this second on the Peter Pan series. Good writing continues with humor and suspense and a full, imaginative tale. Twists and turns shadows follow Peter from the island back to London and all the way to Stonehinge. ( )

In this riveting and adventure-packed follow-up to Peter and the Starcatchers, we discover Peter leaving the relative safety of Mollusk Island—along with his trusted companion Tinker Bell—for the cold, damp streets of London. On a difficult journey across the sea, he and Tink discover the darkand deadly, slithering part-man/part-creature Lord Ombra. It seems that the dreaded Ombra has a variety of mysterious powers including the ability to make shadows disappear. When Peter reaches London, he sets out to find the indomitable Molly. Together they must combat Ombra’s terrible forces to both protect the Starcatchers and the treasured starstuff and most importantly to rescue Molly’s mother from the clutches of evil. Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have done it again—written a compulsively readable, impossible-to-put-down tale that will delight readers of all ages.
