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.

    Story
    "Peter Returns to England to help the Astors"
    Any additional comments?

    Molly Astor & her father Leonard are once again in need of Peter's help. There is a large amount of starstuff that needs to be returned before The Others get their hands on it. The return cannot take place until a specific time on a specific day at a specific place. Until that exact time comes, the starstuff is being heavily guarded at the Astor's home. Lord Umbra & his gang of Others are on the trail of the starstuff putting Molly & her family in grave danger. Peter intercepts Lord Umbra's plan & leaves Neverland to visit England in order to warn Molly. Molly & Peter seem to escape danger just in the knick of time just to find themselves in the next dangerous situation. On their path to the return, they gain a new sidekick, George Darling. Between the 3 of them, they discover the time/date/location of the return. Leonard is in terrible danger & doesn't know it. The return is interrupted by an unlikely character, making the starstuff available for The Others to get their hands on. Just at the last second, Peter comes to the rescue & completes the return.

    I've only completed Book 2 of 5 in the series, but we've now identified a few of the iconic figures in the original Peter Pan story. In this book, George Darling made his debut. Clearly interested in Molly, he is the jealous wanna-be boyfriend that would go through great lengths to keep Molly safe. Safe from danger, & safe from other possible suitors, namely Peter. Although he is only a young teenager in this story, it was so funny to see the same personality show through as that that we already knew from his older self. Anther action-packed installment in this thoroughly entertaining series!

    Age recommendation: 8 & up (Lord Umbra is a dark, mysterious character)

    On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 10!

    "Fun installent"

    Bk 2 of the Nuevo Pedro Pan saga was another fun read. The author does a nice job animating His actors and also dividing good and evil with the sinister Lord Umbre vs. Lord Astor, Molly's dad. Give this a twirl. Your kids should probably be 11 or 12 as dark parts are really dark (tho not nasty).

    "Love this series"

    These books fly by way too fast, very addicting! Always enjoy finding out about the backstory of characters we have already grown to love. Interesting way of explaining Peter and Neverland and how it all came to be!

    "frustratingly short sighted girl blunders again"

    that's what I get listening to a children's book, the logic to the narrative is to setup a difficult situation based on the lack of foresight of a little girl... over and over again. there are much better books for this age level

    "Loved it!"

    We listened to volume 1 of this series while on a road trip. We weren't quite home so we got this one. Absolutely loved the storyline! I'm in the process of downloading volume 3.

    Story
    "Even better than the first"

    The authors have upped the ante with this book, bringing more action, humor and character development. With the origin story out of the way in the first book of this series, the authors are able to spend more time on character development. If you are looking for a book that appeals to children, don't let that character development scare you off--it is still firmly in the children's book category. The only thing the authors can't quite pull off is multiple storyline development. While most of the action takes place in England, they seem determined to include the characters left on Mollusk Island and the story suffers a bit for that choice. As in the previous book, Jim Dale is masterful with the voices, especially Mr. Smee, who regularly had me laughing out loud.

    Fun note: watch out for the brief yet charming introduction to J.M. Barrie.

    "Jim Dale!"

    The second book is just as good as the first. The reader of course is the best.
