Aidan and Sarah Cooper have no idea what they’re getting into one afternoon when they discover a mysterious coded document in a secret compartment of an antique English desk their father recently brought at an auction. Something about the document seems familiar to Sarah, and that night she realizes what it is: the document seems to be referring to some books she has read – the Starcatchers series, about the origin of Peter Pan. But how could that be? The document seems far older than the books. And of course, the books are just stories….
Curious, Sarah and Aidan begin to decipher the mysterious document. At first it’s a game – unraveling the mystery piece by piece, each piece leading them to a new, deeper puzzle.
But soon the game turns strange – and scary. They discover that the “stories” are real, and that what they thought was a fictional battle between good and evil is still going on. And the scariest part is:
They have become part of it.
Pursued by a being that can take any form and will stop at nothing to get what it wants from them, Aidan and Sarah embark on a desperate, thrilling quest for help – a quest that leads them to some unforgettable people in some unlikely places, including one that’s not supposed to exist at all. At each step they must solve new puzzles and escape new dangers, all the while knowing that is they fail, the evil they are fleeing will be let loose on an unsuspecting world.
This book is set in modern times, so about 100 years or so after the last book! Sarah and Aiden Cooper are siblings that have read the Peter and the Starcatchers books (kind of weird, like Inception of books.) One day they discover a hidden message in some old desk, and discover that it is taking about the Starcatchers. At first they think it must be a hoax, because the books aren’t that old, and they are just stories, but they decide to investigate just in case. They are going to London on a family vacation and decide to do some sleuthing to see if the note is real and if they can find the starstuff. It wouldn’t be much of a book if they didn’t. After almost being devoured by Magill’s wolves they make it out with the starstuff. The problem is that Ombra is now after them having sensed the presence of starstuff. This was my least favorite of the series. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. None of the characters we love are in the beginning half of the book, which is disappointing. Although it was interesting to see how modern people would handle starstuff. I did like how they utilized the Peter Pan ride at Disney World, which I love! What happened to Neverland and why no one can find it now, that tied in quite nicely. I felt like Peter was less like the Peter from the first 3 books and more like the Peter from the fourth book or the original Barrie novel. I didn’t like Sarah and Aiden, and didn’t connect with them. Their constant need to argue was annoying. It is worth checking out, only if you are a completist.
