Peter and the Shadow Thieves is the second book in the Peter Pan series. Molly and her family receive a warning from a Starcatcher in Egypt that reads, “Beware the Shadows.” Not knowing what to make of it, they keep a sharp eye for anything suspicious. Peter and his friends learn the meaning more quickly. Their peaceful island, Neverland, is attacked by a strange pirate crew accompanied by a shadowy sinister figure that can steal people’s shadows and control the victim. When Peter learns that their next target is Molly and her family, he hides on the pirate’s ship so he can go back to London and warn them. He is hoping with all his might that he makes it in time.
This book is just as good as the first, if not better. It is very helpful to read these books in order, starting with Peter and the Starcatchers. This book is an easy and fun read.
