Peter Pan is a classic tale but this is a new twist. Peter comes in contact with a group that is trying to keep a secret safe. they have to fight off pirates and thieves that would steal the secret and destroy the world. The characters are a little different from the classic tale but Peter is still the hero orphan boy and it is filled with magic and wonder like the original. This is a series and the story continues in the other books.
