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.

    "Great Story Masters"
    Where does Peter and the Shadow Thieves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the few fiction books I have read. I bought it to share with my kids as we traveled and we sometimes finish the chapter before we turn off the car.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Who is not to like! Peter is more level headed in this book than in anything else we have read, which makes him more likeable. Tinkerbell is more enjoyable to think about as a bird woman than as a jealous fairy. Slank is an awesome bad guy.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Dale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Jim Dale is an excellent storyteller and his voices are seamless. It's easy to forget that we are listening to just one person.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. Yes because it is compelling and no because I want it to last. It's a bit like a fractured fairy tale, but better because the characters have great depth.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is the second in a series. The first book was a gift to one of my children and I would not have picked this title on my own without that prompt. I am glad we got it.

    "Even better than the first!"

    This was a wonderful story! My 8 yr old liked it even better than the first book in the series. It is a little darker than the first book. Jim Dale is amazing, as always.

    "It doesn't get any better than this!"

    For starters, Jim Dale is absolutely amazing as a reader. Hands down, the best in the business. He makes any story come alive with such richness and depth that you feel like you are right there in it! And, this is a rollicking good tale! Every bit as good as the first! My only "criticism" is that there is so much going on, that I got a little tired living through it! (Of course, that kind of liveliness is hardly a real criticism.) Suffice it to say that both mom and 10 yo boy were absolutely riveted.
