"By far the most charming and clever reimagining of the Boy Who Never Grew Up story that I have ever encountered. Readers of all ages, prepare yourselves for a very big adventure." (Terry Brooks)
"Peter David sees the world a bit differently from everyone else - strangely, wonderfully, stunningly differently. Reading Tigerheart gave me the feeling of walking a comfortably familiar road, but seeing things from angles I never knew existed. A beautiful, delightful story." (R.A. Salvatore)

An interesting retelling of Peter Pan
I would recommend this to most of my reader friends. Peter Pan is such a timeless, classic tale, and it's fun to read different interpretations on the story. Many of the readers I know appreciate seeing various writers' takes on the same story that we grew up with. It's fascinating to see what they do with such an old tale.
I've listened to many performances by Simon Vance, and I have to say that he is one of my favorites. This book made me realize how consistent and talented he was with his reading whether he's narrating a historical mystery or an imaginative retelling like this this one.
It was very hard not to want to listen to this in one sitting. I usually have to be doing something while listening to audiobooks like cleaning or knitting, but this story kept me very still while I was reading it. I listened to it in large chunks at a time because it was enthralling.
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I was a little apprehensive at first that I might find it too juvenile for my tastes, but that wasn’t the case at all. Peter David managed to make this book feel like a child who is on the cusp of adulthood. It was both naïve and worldy, innocent and experienced. It was truly an amazing, whimsical story with tones of darkness.
