In this riveting and adventure-packed follow-up to 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 star stuff -- 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.

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!

Captivating and intriguing even if you haven't read it's prequel [Peter and the Starcatchers] Better than the first, with richly imagined characters and a wonderful plot.
