Review:

Silver Stars 4

After reading Thompson’s Hook, I dived into Pan in the hopes of finding out why she had portrayed Peter in such a way. I didn’t quite get what I was looking for, but Thompson certainly gives us the start of Peter’s story.

Being only a novella, it’s natural to be left wanting more from a story, and I honestly believe Thompson could have given us more, but I’m assuming this could be a series of novellas, with each one revealing a little more – at least I hope that is what she has plans.

The story starts with the pixies of Neverland dying, so our favourite – Tinkerbell – heads off to find someone to believe in them enough to save them. She spots Peter flying around as a Guardian, waiting do lead children who have died to the ever after without scaring them.

What follows is an insight into Peter’s reasoning behind gathering the lost boys. Every now and then, there’s a hint of darkness to him that I wish the author had explored a little more, especially when he brings Runt to join the Lost Boys.

I really hope there are more stories about Pan and his Neverland adventures as I was left with a few unresolved questions.
