    1 thought on “Peter and the Secret of Rundoon

    1. A great finish to the Peter and the Starcatchers series I ve really never been a big Peter Pan fan but these books made me love Peter I always thought Peter Pan was too arrogant but these books shed a light on Peter s vulnerable, sweet side I love how they set up the story because all the classic things about Peter Pan his shadow, Tinker Bell, the clock in the crocodile, Captain Hook are explained and it gives you that ah ha moment All the books were very enjoyable and I still get a giggle in wh [...]

    2. If you ve read the previous two books in the Peter Pan prequel trilogy, then you ought to take the time to read through this last book in the series It follows the other books pretty logically, and it maintains the same sense of whimsy, adventure, and imagination that the previous books had Unfortunately, it s a little dense with detail, and than a little overlong in its presentation.Let s be honest for a moment Peter and the Starcatchers was really the only book necessary as a prequel to expla [...]

    3. I d been taking these books out on audio from the library But I enjoyed them so much, I went ahead and purchased this one They re fun, entertaining, and the narration is excellent.This is the third book about the origin of Peter Pan, which posits that he got his ability to fly from a long exposure to star stuff, a glittery powder that can bring about all kinds of miracles In this, he s kidnapped to Rundoon, where the bad guys the Others why they call themselves that is beyond me have a base Ther [...]

    4. Peter s quiet life on the island is changed when the island is attacked by a murderous tribe When Peter tries to come to the aid of the peaceful Mollusk tribe, he is downed by a poison arrow from the Scorpions His weakened state allows him to be captured by the evil, reappearing shadow Lord Ombra who takes Peter to Rundoon Peter s magical abilities to locate starstuff fall, a quality that he himself didn t even know he had, is needed for nefarious purposes by Ombra and the dark side he represent [...]

    5. I read this in one day I really enjoyed this series and I don t know that I ever read Peter Pan I don t consider myself a Peter Pan fan They are great adventures and I love the concepts behind the story star stuff, shadow stealing and how they work these in to explain parts of the original story A really fun read.

    6. I loved this trilogy to set up Peter Pan the authors were meticulous in addressing details I d even forgotten about the ticking clock, the name Pan I wish I could live in this world a bit longer I was sad to see this series end but loved ever minute of it

    7. Third in the Peter and the Starcatchers children s fantasy adventure series based upon the Peter Pan of James Barrie fame My Take We learn a tiny bit about Peter s parents as well as a wee bit about Peter himself The important part of the story is saving the world from Lord Ombra and his Darkness and eliminating the slave trade between Rundoon and St Norbert s even as Peter fears the watchfulness of his own shadow Is it even his own I do love how Barry and Pearson manage to tie in bits and piece [...]

    8. Altogether this was the least put together of the first three Starcatchers books Two completely different storylines that hardly intertwined gave it something of a hodgepodge feeling But it still had lots of the same fun, swashbuckling feel of the first two, and also a few good laughs Every once in a while, the villains did some actually evil things, which honestly helped the story pop a little I still think Lord Ombra could have been scarier if he d said many less words In the end though, I di [...]

    9. Like the first two, an easy read that s fast and enjoyable You find out a lot about Peter s history though we never find out what actually happened to Peter s parents, which in my mind is a huge oversight I also wish there was a better explanation about how Peter detaches from this shadow Also, I m not gonna lie Molly gets on my nerves You would think after ending up in a bind SEVERAL different times by thinking she can handle things on her own, she would learn I was pretty ticked at her for ch [...]

    10. My Thoughts 5 out of 5 Unicorns I loved it Borrowed the audiobook CD s from the libraryThe cover is definitely a magical adventure that grabs your attention and says read me I really do love that Jim Dale has continued as the narrator I love when there is consistency, and my son feels the same way We listened to this book to and from school It makes our ride enjoyable, and I get to share my book addiction with him.This adventure was just as epic as all the other Peter and the Starcatchers books [...]

    11. This book was SOO good I loved it, how the characters changed from the first book to this one, how Ombra s true purpose was finally explained, and exactly who His Highness, King Zanbroff the Third is It filled in all the plot holes of the classic story of Peter Pan except Tiger Lily , and I liked how everything about the classic story was finally explained in a way J.M Barrie never did.SPOILERS I was sad to say that I HATED the ending I hated that James, and who I thought the Lost Boys would be, [...]

    12. I am going to review all three of these Peter and the Starcatchers Peter and the Shadow Theives and Peter and the Secret of Rundoon in one review.I loved all three of these books They make wonderful prequels to the original Peter Pan story and set up how Peter became, well, Peter There are little hints that refer to things to come which are enjoyable oh that s how Neverland became magical, that s how Captain Hook came to be and hates Peter, etc So as a fan of Peter Pan these three books were lot [...]

    13. While this was still a very good book it was as good as the first two in the trilogy It dragged on in placed and was a little longer than it needed to be The events also seemed random, and while they tied together at the end it was a bit of a stretch But is the history of Peter Pan, so I guess a stretch should be expected I may have also not liked this book as well because I did not have as much time to read it as quickly as the first two vacation, sickness, etc and I tend to get bored with boo [...]

    14. A fun, fast paced adventure that young readers will love The villain, Lord Ombra, is reminiscent of a shapeless, and similarly frightening Lord Voldemort He is almost omnipresent as a literal shadow character out to rid the world of light he is bent on destroying the universe Cap n Hook s villainy pales in comparison to him He makes a few appearances and maintains a minor role.Barry creates an interesting, magic infused alternative history of the world based around Starcatchers and The Others Lo [...]

    15. I love this series so much, and I m sad to see this trilogy end Peter and the Secret of Rundoon is a fast paced, wonderfully humorous, incredibly creative conclusion to a beautiful rendition of how Peter Pan could have come to exist.All of the characters in this book are wonderfully thought out and set into the plot From Molly s Starcatcher father to Captain Hook himself, each plays their role wonderfully or sinister ly, if referring to the pirate I couldn t stop flipping the pages, wanting to k [...]

    16. I can t say it enough I really, really like this series I like Peter so much better in this series than in any other incarnation of Peter Pan that I ve known I ve not read the original book yet, so I m pretty much relying on other stories and movies I feel like in those he s rather one dimensional no depth But in this series he s a real person He has feelings Thoughts Not just a devilish imp who enjoys taunting pirates and never growing up I like having the insight into his past, and how his cha [...]

    17. This book never slows down.Molly and George are busy trying to find answers to some difficult questions, Mollusk Island is about to be invaded by the Scorpion tribe, the pirates are busy being pirates Then there are poison arrows, underwater ships, Lord Ombra, Hook, Rundoon and it s horrible king Zarboff the Third, snakes, flying camels, monkeys and rockets, lost boys , way too much olive oil and flying ships with Captain Hook at the helm it is great.When our heroes make it back to Mollusk Isla [...]

    18. There really aren t many things I can say about this book besides I adored it As with all those before it, it masterfully turned the Disney Peter Pan story into something even magical.In this book, we learned why the crocodile that follows Captain Hook named Mister Grin has a clock inside it, why people don t seem to age in Neverland, and that it really is possible to make a boat fly.The way that Lord Ombra explained the beginning of the universe was very interesting Light versus dark, a crack [...]

    19. I thought that this book was really good This book was the start introducing book of all of the Peter Pan characters that we know of such as the Darlings It also had the same main villain, who I thought was to be dead That was a real, but somewhat pleasant surprise Also, as you would think, Peter is back There is one really cool thing The lost boys, the lost boys in all of our child hood memories and in the Walt Disney movie were introduced and took over for the old ones So overall I would real [...]

    20. I was really bummed with this one THere were so many different things going on, and with the short chapters everything just seemed really disjointed The last two books both got 5 stars from me, so I know this could have been so much better I didn t understand the whole plot woth the Scorpions It just seemed really random to me and I really don t think it needed to be there I m still planning on finsihing this series, but I really hope this book isn t a reflection on what s to come because the fi [...]

    21. Peter had just solved two big mysteries He wanted to be left alone, but as always, the mysteries and problems came to him Because of this, he reunited with his friend in England called Molly and they went on a ship to somewhere called Rundoon They found a great mystery there and were determined to solve it They just found that this mystery was greater than imagined and if they didn t solve it the whole planet would suffer This book is about hope, friendship, and mystery.

    22. It was a spiffy book very unpredicable I like how the Starcathers trilogy incorprates the backstory of different elements of Peter Pan that the book doesn t go in depth about, into the story like how Never Neverland and every one upon the island stays the same age forever because of the starstuff that leaked throw the hull of the ship as Captain Hook flew it in the sky that was very clever

    23. What I love the most about these books is the way it explains so many questions I didn t have about Peter Pan Like how the lost boys are the lost boys or Why the croc ate a clock I can t wait to read the other ones

    24. When Peter suddenly gets sucked into a strange metal ship while trying to escape from Captain Hook, there s no one to help him The Mollusks are enslaved by the Scorpions, a group of natives that invaded the Mollusk Island They are left, chipping away at rocks, washed over with hunger and thirst Molly is all the way in England, with no way to learn about what has happened Peter, along with James, Ted, Thomas, and Prentiss, are taken to the dangerous, feared land of Rundoon, where they are locked [...]

    25. If you haven t read the first two of these books, you re unlikely to be convinced by the third one I found it very entertaining though not quite as exciting or unexpected as the first two My recollection from the first two Peter and the Starcatcher books is that there was of what I think of as Dave Barry s style of writing than I was able to glean from this volume, which is not to say that it was less well written or enjoyable as a consequence Ridley Pearson is a very capable writer at least, b [...]

    26. The final book in the trilogy So the box claimed I see here on that there are books in the series, which is A OK with me This would have been a good way to complete things, but I m glad to hear that there are adventures.The Secret of Rundoon ties up some loose ends from the previous two books, loose ends that we may not have noticed until reading this and going, Oh yeah, I was wondering about That tells you how good Dave Barry is as a story teller.If you read the first two books, you already k [...]

    27. At first, this seemed so much like book 2 but as the story unfolded there was much excitement and suspense In this action packed conclusion to the Starcatchers trilogy, Peter and Molly find themselves in the dangerous land of Rundoon, ruled by the evil King Zarboff, who takes great delight in watching his pet snake, Kundalini, consume anyone who displeases him But that s just the start of the trouble facing our heroes, who once again find themselves pitted against the evil shadow creature Lord [...]

    28. Excitement abounds in the third book in this children s Peter Pan prequel series A prior villain returns for an encore More tribal savages do battle Flying camels, carpets, and rocket navigating monkeys take to the sky Evil kings and flesh hungry snakes and crocodiles create danger It s all wildly entertaining I enjoyed this as much as the first in the series and much than the second book I m immediately on to the fourth book.
