The year is 1902 - it's been 23 years since Peter and the Lost Boys returned from Rundoon. Since then, nobody on the island has grown a day older, and the Lost Boys continue their friendship with the Mollusk tribe and their rivalry with Captain Hook.

Meanwhile, in London, Molly has married George Darling and is raising three children: Wendy, Michael, and John. One night, a visitor appears at her door; it's James, one of Peter's original Lost Boys. He is now working for Scotland Yard and suspects that the heir to England's throne, Prince Albert Edward, is under the influence of shadow creatures. These shadow creatures are determined to find a secret cache of starstuff, which fell to London many centuries ago. The starstuff is hidden in an underground vault, which has only one key: the Sword of Mercy, a legendary weapon kept with the crown jewels.

Molly is determined to locate and protect it, but when she suddenly goes missing, it is up to her 11-year-old daughter, Wendy, to keep it out of the Others' clutches. Wendy has heard her mother's stories of a flying boy named Peter Pan, and he may be her only hope of saving the world from a shadowy doom. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jami | 1/27/2014

    " A worthy addition to the Dave Barry/Ridley Pearson version of Peter Pan. The story's pacing is well done and it's interesting for adults, yet not too scarry for children who can read alone. I really have enjoyed this series and do hope that they will continue to add books that are just as well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kylie | 1/26/2014

    " This book was fun but I felt like it was the same as the last book except with Molly's daughter. Still a fun read, thou! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angeleen | 1/20/2014

    " Wo,WO,and WOW! It was probably THE most exciting book I've ever read. I think anyone interested in fantasy should read this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Butler | 1/19/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Weston | 12/31/2013

    " This was another great book in the Starcatchers series. Even though the last time I read this book was in God knows how many years, I'm still excited about the fifth one (or so I read somewhere that they were coming out with a fifth one, "Peter and the Bridge to Neverland," or something like that). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 G | 12/10/2013

    " As good if not better than the first three in the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky | 12/8/2013

    " I quite liked this book, even though it was rather darker than those previous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca McKinnon | 11/4/2013

    " This was really fun. The first three books deal with Peter and Molly, Wendy's mother. In this book, Wendy makes her first appearance and Peter comes back to London for the first time in twenty years. It's a quick read, and a great adventure! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tanya | 8/6/2013

    " Didn't finish it actually. I didn't enjoy it as much as the other ones. The first three were great and it was a prequal to Peter Pan. This one had Peter and Wendy in it and it frustrated me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Branham | 7/14/2013

    " Just as good as the rest of the books, glad he decided to finish the series off this way! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindi | 2/23/2013

    " Another good one in the Peter series. I didn't like this one quite as well as the others, but still an entertaining listen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 9/20/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 3/31/2012

    " I was not as impressed with this Starcatcer book. Very dark. Many of it's enchanting effects were already used in other books. I would not read this with younger children. Good- but does not measure up with the other earlier books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/10/2012

    " i liked the whole thing. I liked the resolution of all the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 QueenAmidala | 5/16/2011

    " It's a book that when you finish you want more. I so enjoyed the entire series. I was okay with the original Peter Pan, but this just gave it so much more depth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 5/13/2011

    " I really didn't enjoy this one as much as I would like too, I really like the first three and this one is just sortof, boring. It takes forever to get to the Climax and almost nothing happens inbetween. Once the story gets to the climax, it takes 15 seconds to wrap it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 daniella | 5/4/2011

    " sooo good i loved it, i love the way it is written and loved the way it ended!! "

    " A great ending for a fabulous series. "

    " Don't think wendy should have visited the island and met peter before the original peter pan, but ah well. It was still a good story... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 4/20/2011

    " It was good but it took me a long time to get through it. I'd say it's more like a 3 1/2 star rating. I enjoyed the first 3 books better. "
