Loved It! Nov. 2 2009
By Kids Book Maven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Roughcut
I loved, loved, loved this book! I was so excited that the authors had gone ahead and written a part 4, and it was in no way a disappointment. The adventure was uniquely different from the other books in the series, and there was lots of action and many sinister characters. Thanks for another wonderful book!

Another high-quality, exciting adventure for Peter, Tink and friends Nov. 30 2009
By KidsReads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Roughcut
All is good in Neverland. So good, in fact, that Peter never expects to leave the wonderful island where he and the Mollusks reside. Most of the Starcatchers are old or have passed on, and the stardust that remains is well hidden from the rest of the world. Peter, Tink and the band of ever-young Lost Boys could not ask for a better situation. However, there is the presence of the infamous Captain Hook. Hook is stranded on the island with a few of his men, but he is sure to stay away from that "wretched flying boy." They live a kind of peaceful co-existence. But as new developments arise, that all is about to change.

In London, Queen Victoria's long reign has ended with her passing. Now her son, Edward, is the natural heir to the crown. But things do not go smoothly as the new king seems to be under some kind of spell. Forces are at work to keep him under the power of an evil band of men, led by the powerful Ombra, aka Von Schatten, a group that consists of the ferocious man/creature known only as the Skeleton:

"...his face, which was as hideously scarred as his hand, the shiny purplish skin drawn tight to the skull, hairless except for a few random tufts. A lone yellow eye glared from a deep socket; where the other eye would have been was only a hole. There was no nose; the mouth was a lipless cavern that could not fully close and thus revealed jagged teeth in a permanent mirthless grin."

This ruthless group is determined to get the tip of Curtana, which is Charlemagne's famous "Sword of Mercy." It is the Sword of Mercy that will give them the key to unlocking the chest that hides Stardust, the magical ingredient that grants immortality, youth and, of course, wealth.

While the Royal Family lies in peril, there are also strange happenings in the London Underground. People are disappearing, and James Smith -- once one of the Lost Boys himself -- has reason to believe that there is a conspiracy afoot. He stops one evening to visit with Molly and express his concerns, but too soon both James and Molly disappear. Now Wendy, Molly's 11-year-old daughter, is determined to locate her mother; to do that, she must first find Peter Pan. She has overheard enough of the conversation between her mother and James to know that only Starcatchers will understand the importance of this situation.

Thus begins one of Peter's most dangerous adventures ever.

Many familiar characters appear in this wonderful book: Wendy's Uncle Neville, a scientist and inventor of the Ornithopter, a flying machine that helps Wendy get to Neverland; Ammm, the porpoise leader (thank goodness Wendy speaks Porpoise); Lord Aster, Wendy's amazing grandfather; Shinning Pearl and Fighting Prawn, daughter and leader, respectively, of the Mollusk tribe; and, of course, the frighteningly determined Mr. Grin, the crocodile who mercilessly pursues Captain Hook.

In addition, some fun new personalities are introduced: Magill and his big bear, Karl; Patrick Hunt, a historian and specialist on the Sword of Mercy; Scarlet Johns, who, under the power of Von Schatten, works with the evil side; and the sniveling Simon Revile, traitor and servant of Von Schatten.

Between sinking ships, stardust, pirates, chomping crocodiles, sharp-toothed mermaids, ghosts, unexpected betrayals, and, yes, even some deaths, Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson continue with the high-quality, always exciting adventures of Peter, Tink and friends. When you're finished with this one, you'll be even more anxious for the next installment in this terrific series. James M. Barrie, the original author of PETER PAN so long ago, would be delighted.

OK, not done yet--but awesome! Oct. 15 2009
By E. Heredia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Roughcut Verified Purchase
My son and I are arguing and fighting over rights to keep on reading, and we're only on page 150. It is an excellent addition to the series and one I know we will enjoy again and again. Do yourself a favor and read all of these in order. If the length seems intimidating, the CD's read by Jim Dale are a treat not to be missed. Appropriate for 6 and up, but nothing inappropriate, only some implied scariness and bad guys.

Alright--edited now long after reading--we have since read the book and listened to the audio 2 times through. Enthralls all ages of normally active and excited kids every time we open it up/turn it on. Don't miss!

More Imagination Dec 14 2011
By M. Blatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This fourth volume in the Starcatcher Series contains the vivid immaginations of its combined authors, Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry. I was fortunate to see both men on the same stage together, talking about their collaboration on this Series. It's no wonder they write so well for children: they were like a couple of kids, with humor sparking between them. They spoke of the initial challenges of collaboration. But they agreed that eventually their story-drafts seemed to take on an identity of their own, as if written by a third man who wrote better than either of them did. The Series is an extension of the Peter Pan story. You have to read the books yourself to fully understand how these two men created a whole new world in a sense. Although written for children, the books can be enjoyed by any age.

Final Starcatcher book May 8 2012
By Frank L. Hicks Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The final book of the series has action going on in both London and NeverLand. Lots of action with new heroes and villains as well as many of the old ones. Peter Pan is once again portrayed as a really inapt hero, in fact he really was not much of a hero at all and made one major stupid move that was devastating, but still he had his moments. The book was really great except for this need to show Peter as a jerk. Wendy was a super hero and James and Ted, two of the lost boys (now fully grown men) who returned to London at the end of the last book also had a part to play and were more heroic than Peter. Molly and George are in it as well as Molly's father. Carl the Bear is there and some really bad characters that even strain the ability of the aging bear. This is clearly a different Peter Pan and Wendy and Molly and Captain Hook etc than us older readers grew up with. So you need to take it as a new Peter Pan and not try to place it into the old category although that is hard.

The authors claimed they had not intended to write this book but it is nice they did. There are lots of adventures in this with Captain Hook on the high seas once more and the bad guys really seem to be totally unstoppable. Starstuff is under siege in both London and Neverland but most of the action is in London. Tinkerbell is still a fun side of the story and a hero in her own right.

In the end there is a finality with at least some of the bad guys but also a fun hint of a future to come. A very good ending.
