9781423121343: Peter and the Sword of Mercy (Peter and the Starcatchers)

The year is 1901--it's been twenty-three 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 startstuff 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 help, but when she suddenly goes missing, it is up to her eleven-year-old daughter, Wendy, to keep the starstuff out of the Others' clutches. She has heard her mother's stories of a flying boy named Peter Pan, and he may be her only hope in saving the world from a shadowy doom...

From AudioFile:

In the fourth prequel to J.M. Barrie's classic PETER PAN, the boy who never grew up is not quite the flying superhero of memory (although he does rescue Wendy three times). This is a complex caper involving several grown-up Lost Boys, Captain Hook, Mollusk Island, the imprisoned Darling parents, mermaids, pirates, porpoises, steamships, flying trains, and a sword that could be the key to opening a magical cache of "star stuff." It's an appealing tale, made more so by the voice of the amazing Jim Dale. Whether he's voicing dithering Uncle Neville or gruff Karl the Bear, Dale brings each character to life. He highlights the humor of Tinker Bell's snide asides to Peter and gives the evil Lord Ombra a whispery, sinister scariness that helps us understand Peter's fear. Dale's voice has its own Peter Pan quality, never aging and always ready to leap to a challenge. M.M.C. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
