Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

Peter is plotting his retaliation against the latest bombing. Neverland needs an army, and Peter Pan is certain children will join him once they know what is at stake. The lost boys and girls are planning an invasion in suburbia to recruit, but in order to deliver their message, they will need the help of an old and dangerous associate—the infamous Pied Piper.
Hunting him down will require a spy in in the real world, and Gwen soon finds herself in charge of locating the Piper and cutting an uncertain deal with him. She isn't sure if Peter trusts her that much, or if he's just trying to keep her away from him in Neverland. Are they friends, or just allies? But Peter might not even matter now that she's nearly home and meeting with Jay again.
The Piper isn't the only one hiding from the adults' war on magic though, and when Gwen goes back to reality, she'll have to confront one of Peter's oldest friends… and one of his earliest enemies.


My Review
Gwen is back in Neverland. The adults have a couple devices that they have been using to attacking anyone/anything that happens upon them. Peter has holed up in a tree house coming up with a plan. Finally he let's Gwen in on it. They need to find the Piped Piper. A task that Gwen is given.

I liked this second installment (admittedly not as much as the first one). Gwen is still in her inbetweeness. It was touched on but never fully explored but it is obvious, at least to me, that she is in Neverland for two reasons. The first one being her sister and the second being Peter. Though I'm not sure if is i a romantic feeling she has for Peter she certainly seems to desire his approval. Anyway, I found that most of this book had a slower pace. It does pick up and get better at the end of course. We are introduced to a new character besides the Piper.

Good book and probably a must read if you plan on reading the third book. Which I am actually looking forward to because she left a door in which the Piper may come back as well as that other character I mentioned. The third book has the potential to have more
