It's been 23 years since we last visited Peter and Molly. While life hasn't changed much on the island, Molly has grown up, married George, and had three kids of her own. The Others have been silent all this time, and the Starcatchers have been lulled into a feeling of security.
All that changes when James shows up with some disturbing news about what is happening in the palace. But when he disappears, Molly really worries. Molly is the next to vanish, and it is up to her daughter Wendy to find help against the new forces of darkness.
Meanwhile, on Mollusk Island, four shipwrecked men appear. Their story doesn't quite hold together, and Fighting Prawn wants them off the island as quickly as possible. Is he right to be suspicious? Are The Others on the move again? Can Peter stop them?
Obviously, there is a lot going on, and those who have enjoyed the previous three books about Peter Pan will enjoy this one as well. Once again, the story starts quickly and the danger just keeps building until we reach the suspenseful climax. For once, the story on the island felt as important as the story in London, and both kept me turning pages. The characters are fun as well, and I enjoyed getting lost in the story.
Don't start here since it is assumed you know what has happened before. But if you have read the previous volumes, you'll find this one just as captivating.
