"One of my favorite books! (It) is equal in greatness to the first book of the Peter Triliogy." Reviewed by Kahlil, Loyal Hemphill Teen Reader.
- - "An evil force is once again trying to obtain starstuff, the magical substance that, among many other qualities, enables Peter to fly and to remain eternally youthful. Peter must visit London to help his friend Molly and her family of starcatchers, leaving the boys on Mollusk Island at the mercy of Hook. Squalid London streets, aristocratic mansions . . . , and even Stonehenge make atmospheric backdrops for bouts with pirates, wolf packs, and a deliciously creepy villain who steals souls from shadows."
