Summary
James, one of Peter's original Lost Boys, 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 who are after starstuff hidden in an underground vault which has only one key: the Sword of Mercy. Molly is determined to help, but when she suddenly goes missing, it's up to her eleven-year-old daughter, Wendy, to keep the starstuff out of the creatures' clutches ... and Peter Pan may be her only hope in saving the world from a shadowy doom

Review
  • Gr. 4-6 The fourth title in the Peter and the Starcatchers series (originally planned as a trilogy of prequels to Barrie’s classic Peter Pan), this adventure involves a magical sword once wielded by Charlemagne and now held by the forces of evil as they attempt to seize a cache of starstuff, the powerful substance that the Starcatchers must protect. Wendy steps into her mother’s shoes as the story’s heroine, while the action zigzags from one set of characters and locales to another. Full of narrow escapes from nasty villains and bits of humor, this fast-paced adventure delivers plenty of thrills. -- Phelan, Carolyn (Reviewed 02-01-2010) (Booklist, vol 106, number 11, p42)
  • Gr 5–8— It's 1902, 23 years since the events of the last book, and Peter and the other inhabitants of Mollusk Island haven't aged a day. In London, however, things are much different. Molly is now married with three children: Wendy, Michael, and John. The Others seem to have disappeared, and the Starcatchers are all but gone from this world. But all is not well on Mollusk Island, or in London. Evil Ombra has inhabited the body of a man and made himself Prince Albert Edward's closest advisor and seen to the death of his true advisors. Queen Victoria is dying, and the prince will soon be king. It is now Wendy's turn to take up her mother's cause and convince Peter to join the fight between good and evil yet again. Followers of these adventures will be overjoyed at finding a new installment in the series. New readers, however, will be lost if they don't pick up Peter and the Secret of Rundoon (Hyperion, 2007) first. Barry and Pearson again give kids a quick-paced read with nonstop action.—Lisa Marie Williams, East Gwillimbury Public Library, Holland Landing, Ontario --Lisa Marie Williams (Reviewed March 1, 2010) (School Library Journal, vol 56, issue 3, p152)
