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.

"This should appeal to fantasy and adventure fans alike." (School Library Journal)
"Readers will relish the chance to further explore the backstory of a favorite childhood tale." (Booklist)
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.
