Peter Pan has crash-landed back on Neverland. But this is not the island he remembers.

Desperate to rescue Claire and the fractured Lost Boys, Peter must unravel what truly tore his dreamland apart. But with each step, he is haunted by more of his own broken memories. Not even Pan himself is what he seems.

Claire Kenton is chained to a pirate ship, watching the wreckage of Neverland rocked by tempests. When she finally finds her brother, Connor is every bit as shattered as the island. Claire may have pixie dust flowing in her veins—but the light of Neverland is flickering dangerously close to going out forever.

To rescue Neverland from the inescapable shadow, the boy who never grew up and the girl who grew up too fast will have to sacrifice the only thing they have left: each other.

First, if you haven’t yet read Dust by Kara Swanson, that’s a must. Shadow is the second half of the story and should not be read unless Dust has already been read.

That said, I am delighted to say that I may like Shadow even better than Dust–and I loved Dust! There are so many twists and turns, highs and lows, that you never quite know what to expect next. And isn’t that perfect for a story involving Neverland? The characters are complex, engaging, and fascinating. This story has all the feels. If you don’t choke up, laugh out loud, and heave a happy sigh, you just aren’t paying attention. Add to that descriptions that defy the imagination, with just a hint of poetry, and you’ll almost swear you flew over Neverland yourself. I honestly can’t think of a single negative point. Which is why I am wholeheartedly giving this incredible fantasy novel 5 stars.

And like the frosting on the cake, I’m quite happy with the narration of this audiobook version, as well.
