Publisher's Summary

In this riveting and adventure-packed follow-up to the award-winning New York Times best seller Peter and the Starcatchers, Peter leaves the relative safety of Mollusk Island - along with his trusted companion, Tinker Bell - for the cold, damp, dangerous streets of London.

On a difficult journey across the sea, he and Tink discover the dark and deadly slithering part-man/part-creature Lord Ombra, who is intent on recovering the missing starstuff - celestial dust that contains unimagined powers.

In London, Peter attempts to track down the indomitable Molly, hoping that together they can combat Ombra's determined forces. But London is not Mollusk Island; Peter is not the boy he used to be; and Lord Ombra - the Shadow Master - is unlike anything Peter, or the world, has ever seen.

"Dale has the uncanny knack of knowing his characters; he presents each personality to us as an intimate acquaintance." (AudioFile)
Listen to the rest of the Starcatchers series.

    "Not as good as first book ...but still pretty good"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved the first book a lot... but I felt like this book kind of drew me out of the world of Neverland and I felt a little disconnected for most of the time from that world. As a stand-alone story it is great and it does give a little more back story to the Peter Pan/Neverland story. As always Jim Dale (narrator) was incredible.

    Hard choice between Molly's Dad and Peter


    Any additional comments?

    We got this after listening to the first Star Catcher's book. It was just as great as the first and answered even more questions about Peter, the island and the pirates.

    "CONSUMING...."

    I couldn't stop listening to this story. Jim Dale really has a drawing voice. One that I could listen to all day long. And I did, today, listening to this very cute story. I loved Tink. Everytime she had something to say, I laughed. I think this is a very good story and I was completely consumed by it. I am downloading book 3 now. I am ready to continue the adventure with Peter, Molly and the whole gang.

    "A great modern day additon to the classic!"

    Delightful! It may be a children's story, but adults can enjoy this too. If you're a fan of the Peter Pan stories you appreciate the occasional nod to the original. A bit of a modern feel in the pace an the intelligence of the dialog. Loved the narration by Jim Dale - he was perfect for this!

    "Trying not to be critical, it's a kids book!"

    I liked Peter and the Star Catchers, as did my wife and 14 year old, so naturally we got the next 2 books in the series. None of us found ourselves "hooked" (pun intended) on anything but Jim Dales incredible talent to bring a story to life! We leave our Jim Dale experiances feeling as though we had just watched a lengthy movie instead of listened to an audiobook. I feel as though I saw all the HP movies long before they came out.
    I fear a backlash here, but these next two stories in Peters saga are redundant, predictable and simple and other than the narrator, would mostly only intrigue the under 14 crowd, which is where it is aimed anyway, so that's perfect. Adults would find much more satisfaction in the Dark Tower Series from Stephen King if they want true 5 star writing and listening.
