Publisher's Summary

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 bought 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 if they fail, the evil they are fleeing will be let loose on an unsuspecting world.

From wood and brass to plastic

The Star Catcher series prior to this latest installment was really charming and loveable. Aimed at a younger audience and taking place in the nineteenth century, it was unique and stood in contrast to the various Harry Potter knock-off series that dot the landscape. It was beautifully narrated to boot.

This new Star Catcher book modernizes, Americanizes, Disney-fies, young-adult-ifies, and commercialises the series. The story is brought into the present day, shifted to the United States, replanted in Disneyworld, recast with teens and a twenty-something, and now makes frequent references to modern, brand-name goods and services.

I'm disappointed. Reading this new book felt exactly the same as reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I imagine the authors are trying to cater to their aging (teen-aging) and primarily American audience and hoping for a movie deal with Disney and some product placement lucre from Apple, Google, Starbuck's, etc. Fair enough, but the series no longer seems special, at least to me.

- Nothing really matters "Rob Thomas"

Another great Neverland book

Still a very fun, fast paced book. I really liked it. I so loved the first three and Jim Dale that it was a little hard to get used to a different narrator. I still highly recommend this book and this series.
