Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have reinvented Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, and Captain Hook so well that a generation from now no one might remember where J. M. Barrie's original creation ended and theirs began. So far, the two have written three incredibly fat and action-packed volumes of Peter's adventures with the "starstuff," the magical fallen stars that gave him his power and - in effect - rendered him immortal, though as a boy doomed never to grow up.

Along the way, Barry and Pearson have also brought a multitude of other parts of the legend to life and to center stage. At present, they've authored two short novels on other characters in Peter's worldscape.

Peter and the Secret of Rundoon finishes off the trilogy Barry and Pearson set out to write and fans of the series are already feeling the loss. The two authors succeed brilliantly in bringing their books to cinematic life within the pages. The pacing of all three books proceeds at breakneck speed.

As with the other books, PETER AND THE SECRET OF RUNDOON jumps in with both feet and with three different storylines that ultimately converge in the trilogy's final battle.

I love these books, and I love reading them to my son. There's just enough going on all the time - enough chases and enough mystery - that it keeps him fully engaged. And me too. They're even interesting enough for me to read by myself, then go back almost immediately and read them again to him.

Lord Ombra, Peter's ultimate enemy in this book, returns and begins his machinations to bring about the end of the Starcatchers, those people responsible for keeping the "starstuff" out of the hands of bad guys. Ombra quickly links up with Captain Nerezza and the chase is on.

Peter and the Secret of Rundoon was a really great read. It ended the best trilogy I've ever read in my life, and in a way, it was disappointing to know that there were no more books coming. If you haven't read the previous two books, I suggest you go out right now and buy them. Before you start reading, make sure that you have at least five hours of free reading time. Once you begin reading, it is impossible to stop. Yes, these books are crazy addicting....

Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson just have this amazing gift to create suspense and the desire to read on. I hope that they will team up again to write a presequel to another classic!

Happy readings! :)

The Starcathcers' trilogy comes to an action-packed conclusion in this final installment from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. In this installment, Peter must once again do battle against the evil Lord Ombra in order to save the world. Along with his friends Molly and George and the other Lost Boys they will do battle in order to stop Lord Ombra from completing his evil scheme. This is a terrific read. We've enjoyed all three books but this one was the best.

My 11-year-old daughter finished reading this book in about a week and says it's her favorite of the Peter and the Starcatchers series -- that's saying a LOT because the first two books are fabulous. That's right, I read them too - it's not just for kids. Dave Barry and Riddley Pearson are hilarious and have created vivid characters and stories that really move. A+++++

Format: Hardcover
The first two volumes in this series caught me off guard with their freshness, originality, and that certain sense of whimsy that most of the great fairy stories tend to radiate. They are, and remain, far superior reads to the third and presumably final installment, "Peter and the Secret of Rundoon."

The strengths of the writing remain the adept characterizations, particularly where Peter's little tribe of Lost Boys are concerned this go-around, as well as the pacing; Barry and Pearson are more than competent at weaving multiple plot threads together, tapestry-like, which is all the more reason for my feeling a bit let down after finishing this one.

For starters, and without attempting to give away too much of the plot (a thing that I despise when reading reviews here and elsewhere!), the ending seemed almost an afterthought, with the real climax occuring several chapters before the final pages turned. While the previously mentioned Lost Boys thread was neatly tied up (although, again, perhaps a bit too quickly), how Neverland comes to be the place that we know it in Barrie's original tale (and the subsequent, excellent volume by Geraldine McCaughrean, 'Peter Pan in Scarlet,). Perhaps, given the situation regarding the immense quantity of starstuff present on the island, we are left to infer that, at some future point, the island, lagoon, and what not are finally catapulted into some time-space nexus, lodging just next to that second star to the right...but we are left with nary a clue as to whether or not this might be. Maybe such a question will be answered in a subsequent volume.

But the real bone to pick comes from the mouth (?) of Lord Ombra himself.

Peter and the Secret of Rundoon (The Starcatchers) on CD is well performed by Jim Dale who also does the Harry Potter Series. It is so eye-opening to hear the unabridged spoken version of books. My applause is for the author Dave Barry as well as the reader Jim Dale.
