Peter and The Shadow Thieves by Barry-Pearson

In this riveting and adventure-packed follow-up to the award-winning New York Times bestseller Peter and the Starcatchers, Peter leaves the relative safety of Mollusk Island - along with his trusted companion, Tinker Bell - for the dark and dangerous streets of London. On a difficult journey across the sea, he and Tink discover the mysterious and deadly Lord Ombra, who is intent on recovering the missing startuff - celestial dust that contains unimagined powers. In London, Peter attempts to track down the indomitable Molly, hoping that together they can combat Ombra's determined forces. But London is not Mollusk Island; Peter is not the boy he used to be; and Lord Ombra - the Shadow Master - is unlike anything Peter, or the world, has ever seen.

Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have done it again - written a compulsively readable, magical, impossible-to-put-down tale that will delight readers of all ages.


Ceritanya masih sama serunya dengan buku pertamanya, Peter and The Starcatchers, tapi saya lebih suka buku pertamanya. Mungkin karena di buku pertamanya banyak pengetahuan tentang Peter yang kita selama ini tidak tau, sedangkan Shadow Thieves ini lebih merupakan kelanjutan cerita yang sudah ada aja. Tambahan lagi, musuh Peter kali ini lebih ‘serius jahatnya’, dan lebih tidak terkalahkan.
Lord Ombra, adalah seorang makhluk yang bisa menyedot bayangan orang, dan ketika bayangan orang itu diambil, orang yang diambil bayangannya itu jadi seperti patung dan menuruti perintah Lord Ombra. Sayangnya, Lord Ombra yang saya tidak yakin apakah dia manusia atau makhluk mistis, terlalu kuat dan misterius, yang membuat saya agak gerah membaca ceritanya.
Overall, terjemahannya cukup baik dan enak dibaca. Petualangannya pun masih cukup seru, namun lebih dark daripada serial pertama sekuel Peter Pan ini.
