In the vein of Gregory Maguire’s bestselling works, the award-winning artist Brom takes us on a haunting look at the true world of Peter Pan, in his first full-length novel. From modern day New York to the dying land of Faerie, The Child Thief reveals the world of Peter Pan through the eyes of an insecure runaway who is seduced by Peter’s charm. But any dreams of a fairy wonderland are quickly replaced by the reality of life and death survival as Peter’s recruits are forced into a lethal battle in which the line between good and evil is blurred.

The biggest irritating thing I could say about this book was that the readers interpretation of young kids yelling made them sound like old men. I know the reader can't yell into the mic but I just couldn't get over it and it graded on my nerves.
Then all the cursing the kids did. I know that they aren't great kids but it seemed that the reader didn't know what to make kids say so he had them curse for cursing sake. Even hanging out with my guy friends I never cursed, nor did my friend, like that. Also grading on the nerves.
But there where some cool ideas in this book and some nifty twist and turns.
