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...

Finally Wendy said, “But why …” “Wendy,” said Molly, “I said, not tonight. You must trust me.” “All right,” sighed Wendy. “Now, go to sleep,” said Molly, closing the door. But Wendy couldn’t sleep, not with all these astonishing things to think about. She had so many questions, but one in particular kept popping up in her mind: Why had her mother told her about the

in his clawlike hand. “The tip of Curtana,” he rasped. “The Sword of Charlemagne. The Sword of Mercy.” Despite the need for haste, the four stood for a few moments, examining the tip. It was made of silver-colored metal that glinted in the candlelight like steel, but to the Skeleton it felt heavier. The tip was pointed at one end; the opposite edge jagged and at an angle, as the tip had not broken from the sword evenly. It was only a few inches long, about the length of his hand. The Skeleton

The smell of fish lingered in the air. “Repair the ship,” Hook muttered. “It’s almost too good to be true!” said Smee. “For once you’re right, Smee. It is too good to be true. Has to be trap. A clever trap, cleverly designed by the cunning savages to lure us into… a trap. They think I’m a fool, Smee.” “But a request for a parley,”

“Nonsense!” she said, taking his arm and pulling him into the foyer. “John, Michael,” she said. “This is Mr. Smith.” Michael eyed James warily. “Who are you?” he said. “Michael Darling, that is a rude question,” said Mrs. Darling. “Mr. Smith is a very dear friend to your father and me. And we are delighted to see him at any hour, especially after…James, how long has it been?” “Years, I’m afraid, Molly,” said James. “Molly?” said John. He giggled. She turned to her son. “It’s the name I went by

your hands inside the boat,” said O’Neal, but the others, eyeing the mermaids warily, had already done so. The mermaids gathered at the stern of the boat and put their hands on it. Moments later, propelled by a dozen powerful tails, the boat was skimming toward the island, faster than it had ever moved by sail. Peter flew ahead, following Tink, an angry red dot out in front.
