    1 thought on “Peter and the Sword of Mercy”

    1. My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I liked it!!! ***Borrowed the audiobook CD’s from the libraryThe cover is definitely Peter Pan-ish and makes you think of magical adventures.This is the 4th book in the series, and while I loved listening to it with my son, it was not my favorite. I think I really liked Molly and Peter together, so it was weird having it be her daughter…at least for me.It is another fantastical adventure for Peter and he makes some new friends and reunites with some old fr [...]

    2. This book was a surprise -- I thought book 3 (Rundoon) was the last in the series. However, having this book certainly makes sense as it makes the final connection between the Starcatchers series and the original Peter Pan.Happily, this book is also better than the previous book. Book 3 was definitely the weakest link. This book is as good as the first one -- my favorite -- and in some ways is a stronger story, though there's less character development and less dealing with Peter's loneliness th [...]

    3. I don't know why I love this series so much. The characters are only fair, the plot is not all that mind boggling, the emotions aren't wowishly real, and it doesn't have the same feel of the original Peter Pan.But I do love this series so much.I don't know why it is one of my favorite things, but it is.And this book was the second best in the series, only falling to the first because it had less humor. But more other things? I love them all. I don't know why.

    4. Ugh. This book was terrible. At the beginning, it was okay, but it started getting really really REALLY boring in the middle, and by the end I was just skimming through it and I just wanted it to end. I was reading it for more than a month, because I dreaded picking it up and so I wouldn't touch it for weeks and I hated reading it. And when I did read it, if I wasn't skimming, I'd read it really slowly because there was so much freaking long description and it was so boring.Bleh bleh bleh. I don [...]

    5. Not as bad as Rundoon, but still a huge let-down from the first two books. Not to mention I thought we were building up to a great MOMENT with Peter and Molly where there would maybe be some tears, and he would come to accept that she'd grown up - or not. That would have been more fun (I love dramatics) and would make more sense seeing that this is still a prequel, and the Peter in J.M. Barry's book was quite different from this one. But anyway, there was no MOMENT, not even a MOMENT or a moment [...]

    6. My real rating may be more of a 2.5? I can't seem to rate a book about Peter Pan any less than a 3, though.I must admit, I am a bit disappointed with the ending. It ends well and all, but my favorite part about these books has been that they are the prequels to J.M. Barry's Peter Pan and explain many of the details of Mr. Barry beloved classic. One huge flaw in this story is that Peter meets Wendy and shares the adventure with herSo it doesn't make much sense that Wendy and Peter are supposed to [...]

    7. This was the final book to the Peter and the Starcatchers series. It occurs over 20 years after the previous book. Molly is now married to George Darling and has three children (Wendy, John, and Michael). George has forbidden her to talk about her past life as a Starcatcher and when she is approached by one of the Lost Boys who returned to London with them in the last book she is hesitant to believe the story he is telling her. he has been assigned by Scotland Yard to the palace and saw (and fel [...]

    8. I love this series!! My kids and I have really enjoyed listening to the audiobooks. I can't wait to listen to Peter Pan together. Highly recommend!

    9. Fourth in the Peter and the Starcatchers fantasy adventures series for children loosely based on J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan.My Take This was great fun to read as we dipped further into the original Peter Pan's characters with Wendy, John, and Michael Darling although it's really only Wendy who plays an active part.Some proofreader messed up. Fighting Prawn is suggesting that since the castaways have done such a good job helping the Lost Boys fix up their hut that they would be ideal to help fix De [...]

    10. If loving this series is being a kid, then I am a kid.But this book was disappointing compared to the first three.

    11. OK. This is not fair. The book, as with all in the series, was amazing, and they end with someone tapping Wendy's windowsill? SO NOT FAIR! I want them to write another book!!!I got so many funny quotes out of this! I loved watching Hook flip out about pink sails, Smee hand Hook an empty gun, and Hook call Smee less intelligent than a clam. The comedy between those two characters plays out so well that I can't get enough of it. (Add to all that that I know Smee is a softy at heart, and I adore it [...]

    12. This was another good story of Peter with the introduction of Wendy, John and Michael. I was disappointed in adult George Darling, but liked meeting the adult lost boys. However, I am really getting tired of Lord Ombra not staying dead.

    13. This final book in the Starcatchers series was an afterthought by the authors, written at the request of readers who weren’t satisfied with a trilogy. It’s crafted with the same humor and style, but it takes place twenty years after the others and, incidentally, one year before Mr. Barrie published his classic Peter Pan play on which the Starcatchers is based.Molly is all grown up, the original Lost Boys are aging, and “when the starstuff falls stopped, the group you knew as the Starcatche [...]

    14. I think the main problem that I have with #4 is this: Peter's back story is fully revealed now. This is hardly a prequel. 'Sword of Mercy' lacks those 'OH!' moments, in which you are delightedly piecing together Peter Pan's life as it relates to J.M. Barrie's play. Instead we're left slogging through a 'meh' plot involving boring locations and recycled villains. I mean, really? How the heck did Ombra survive AGAIN? And where did the Skeleton come from? Where do his horrible powers come from?The [...]

    15. Hmmmm, I see by the title above that this book was NUMBER 4 IN A SERIES. I HATE it when a book does not clearly state somewhere on the cover or jacket that it's part of a series. But, I was able to read this without any confusion and without suspecting it was even part of a series, so the fact that it stands alone is good. I saw in the "thanks" portion in the book before starting it, that the author had thanked "Disney" and that confused me until I started reading and realized it's a take on Pet [...]

    16. My favourite book in the series, probably because Molly annoys me and she's out of the way for the most part in this book. Somehow Wendy is less annoying than her mother. I love the ending too, and how everything in the four books seem to be leading up to this moment, and how Captain Hook and his gang kept ending up stranded in Pirate Cove even though they did get the chance to roam the seas.When Ombra appeared, I was like "doesn't this guy ever die???"Somehow I feel starstuff isn't that great o [...]

    17. I LOVED the first three books in this series and was was SO excited when I heard this was coming out. Once I was a few pages into it however, I was unsure of whether I'd really connect with this book due to Molly being "grown up" and married. I felt sad at times because Peter remembered the girl Molly that he loved and here she was with kids of her own. I have to say that they did an AMAZING job of capturing me just as easily as they did with the first three books. Once Peter had is few moments [...]

    18. I was surprised to learn that there was a fourth book in this series. I loved the first two books and liked the third, but was not sure where the story would pick up for a fourth book. Well, twenty years passed and now Wendy, Michael and John were brought into the story. Again, I love how Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have created there unique plots which integrate elements of the traditional Peter Pan story. This fourth book was just as good as the first two.

    19. This book blew me away. In this book you finally get to see who Molly really is. You also get to meet Wendy, Michel, and Jon who are actually Molly's children. You also get a whole new band of characters that you fall in love with instantly plus the severely underused characters emerge in this book. So, yeah.

    20. This was really fun. The first three books deal with Peter and Molly, Wendy's mother. In this book, Wendy makes her first appearance and Peter comes back to London for the first time in twenty years. It's a quick read, and a great adventure!

    21. Not my favorite of the series. However, still a big fan. I enjoyed the revisit to old favorite characters and meeting new ones. The backstory is told in a smart and sweet way that has me hooked on a series that typically would not be my cup of tea.

    22. This makes me sad. The first three books were great. This one wasn't. I want to keep loving this series, and in order to do that, I can't force myself to read the next book. This series should have stuck with the three books it was intended to have

    23. only one word can be used to discribe this book. well two really well no, three words. IT'S ALMOST AS GOOD AS AVATAR!!! make that six words

    24. One of the greatest pieces about this series is the anticipation of how it will get to the point where we remember the storyline from Disney's Peter Pan. So much action adventure and suspense, this is a great series for middle grade boys who are reluctant readers!"The year is 1902 - 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 [...]

    25. Maybe 3.5 stars? I liked it but I didn't love it and I think maybe one of the things I liked about the previous books that was difficult for me with this concluding volume was the separation of the original Peter Pan novel/play/musical and this prequel/origin story. The closer it got to the characters and events of Peter Pan, the more it butted up against the established lore. To borrow a phrase from a friend of mine, original works are not sacrosanct, you can mess with them and adapt them as lo [...]

    26. Peter Pan’s prequel adventures continue twenty years later in the fourth book in the Starcatchers series. This book is just as good as the first three, but I got a little lost in the climactic battle. This was probably due more to reading four of these in a row than to any fault of the authors or the story. There’s a fifth book on the series, but I’ll probably wait a bit and come back to it fresh. I still recommend this series to young and old alike. It’s really entertaining and super fu [...]

    27. I'm sad to say it was the worst one in the series. It should have stayed a trilogy. Yes I was happy to see Wendy and her brothers but she annoyed me so much that it didn't matter the beginning was very good but the middle was dragging and dragging! I hope the last book in the series will be better!The audiobook is narrated by Jim Dale and now I understand why everyone is raving about his narration!
