Gwendolyn Carlisle loves fairies, perhaps too much. On her birthday, she receives the precious “kiss” necklace, which has been passed down from mother to daughter ever since Peter Pan gave it to Wendy Darling. That night, Gwendolyn has her first tantalizing vision of Fairy Haven.

More than anything, Gwendolyn wishes she could be there. At last, Peter Pan comes for her. The instant they reach Never Land, she sets out to find fairies. But the fairies are not eager to meet her.

Then the evil Kyto, a dragon the fairies once helped to capture, escapes. He intends to destroy Never Land, starting with Fairy Haven. The fairies have but one choice: they must stop Kyto. As they begin their desperate quest—a quest that could be their very last—the fairies must decide if Gwendolyn can help or hinder. . . .

Infused with magic and feeling, this thrilling tale is the third in the celebrated series from Newbery Honor–winning author Gail Carson Levine. Download and start listening now!

    " I got about half way through this book and decided it was a tedious waste of my time. The one positive from it is that I feel inspired to read the original Peter Pan. "

    " I bought this book for my niece and thought I would enjoy reading it before giving it as a gift. However I was very disappointed and found that I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped. It moves very slowly and doesn't capture the audience's attention to the exciting events that are unfolding. "

    " it isn't necessary to read the first two disney fairy novels by Levine, but it does make the read more enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacy | 12/16/2013

    " I loved this book. I really enjoyed how they brought Peter Pan into the story. I liked the fact that every generation Peter comes and brings Wendy's decendant to Never Land. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keri | 4/14/2013

    " If you are a Peter Pan fan, this book is not for you. He is barely mentioned. Even Tinkerbell has abandoned him to live with the fairies. Young fairy lovers will surely overlook this and enjoy the story. "

    " i dunno if this is just because i accidentally got the audio-book instead of the book, but i didn't like this one as much as the other two. I'm sure if i had the book in my hands, the story would have flown out to me, but the reader stank. the only voice she did well was terence's. "

    " At first I thought the story was a bit regurgitated, but then it developed a life of it's own and became a very fun little read. I happened to listen to this on disc with an excellently chosen reader that really added to the enjoyment. "

    " I downloaded this as a quick audio book to test out borrowing library audio files online. It was quite cute, definitely for little girls 4-8, I'd say. I can picture 3-yr-old Bella loving it as a readaloud. Very girly. Lots of fairies and minimal Peter Pan. "

    " Was a nice listen. A clumsy (human) girl in Wendy's line is finally taken to Neverland. She has seen visions of fairies and loves them dearly. Her time with the fairies might come to a quick ending since Kito, the dragon, has accidentally been freed.
    We liked the book, but it was just ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elinor | 10/1/2010

    " Hmm, maybe Tink doesn't care for Terence because there's nothing about him that needs fixing?
    Mother Dove kind of annoys me, for some reason. She's harsher with Gwendolyn, who genuinely tries to help and does help, than with Vidia the traitor. "

    " I love these books. Levine does such a fabulous job. (If only the Tinkerbell movies had gone with Levine's books.... sigh.)

    This one is fun because it brings in one of Wendy's descendants!

    And of course, the illustrations are once again gorgeous. :) "
