This book takes the second star on the right and launches into adventure pure with whimsical, childhood imagination straight on till morning.

If the adults from the normal world aren't stopped, Neverland will be destroyed. Peter Pan already has a plan, but it involves a deal with the notorious Piper. Gwen is ready to help Peter even if being sixteen already makes it hard for her to play in the Lost Kids' childhood games. But nothing is as it appears, and Gwen soon wonders if she's in over her hea

I was given an e-copy of the Piper's Price by the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Piper's Price is the second book in the Neverland Wars series. It picks up a few months after the end of the first book, where Gwen and her sister, Rosemary, fled reality and the black coats of the Anomalous Activity Department, who intend to strip down Neverland's magic and use it for their own purposes. In order for Peter to recruit an army of children to protect Neverland, Gwen must return to realit

3.5 rounded up for good reads

The Piper's Price is the sequel to the Neverland Wars - in this book we are discovering the things the Piper requires in order to help save Neverland & go on the quest to save those things. Gwen also continues to wrestle with choosing between being a kid & an adult. What is more important to her, growing up with all her friends & loved ones or experiencing childhood for her last chance?

We also get a bit more romance and friendship development in this book. Overall a

Four stars only because I had trouble getting into it. But once I was in, it was fun, whimsy, creative, and just plain imaginative. The characters really stand out in this one, even more than in the last, and the author's voice is more defined.

I'm still not completely head over heels for Jay, but I'm more on that ship than I was last book.

Overall, a great followup to The Neverland Wars.

*Thank you to the author, Audrey Greathouse, for sending me a free digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


I read the first Neverland Wars book and I felt iffy about it. At the time, I didn’t know a sequel was in the works. When the author contacted me about reviewing an eARC copy of The Piper’s Price, I thought I would give it a try.


I still wasn’t a fan of Gwen as the protagonist. I could definitely do without her. I felt as though she didn’t know what

The Skinny

Peter Pan must save Neverland! Grown ups in Reality have upped their game, and these are no longer idle threats. The War is near, and Peter cannot win it without more children. In order to gain the following Neverland needs, Peter needs the Piper’s help. Except they are nearly arch enemies. Then there’s the problem of some puzzling tokens that must be found to summon the Piper.

Since Peter can’t go himself, he sends Gwen back to Reality to hide with an old Native American friend. Peter’

Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author for review. Thank you!

This series and I have had a rocky relationship. It's a shame. I like the concept, the cover art, and the fact that it's a retelling, but the content just hasn't clicked for me.

Most, if not all, of the issues I had with Book 1 are present in The Piper's Price. Gwen continues to fill too many pages with unresolved teenage angst and an identity crisis. The book itself seems to suffer an identity crisis of sorts, featuring a protag

Wow, what an amazing adventure this story was. I was hooked when I read the first book and when the author announced she was releasing another, I just had to jump in and read it. The tale that the author spun was absolutely phenomenal. I was enchanted by the turn of every page. This is a remarkable remake of an old classic with a unforgettable ride into a mystical and magical world of amazing characters that will bring out the kid in you again. The story-line was amazing and the characters unfor ...more

This sequel is just as amazing as the first. Lets start with the cover as that what usually snags me first when i browsing for new books. Second you add in its a sequel to Neverland Wars written by an amazing author. Audrey has taken the basic story of Neverland with our beloved Peter Pan and tossed in some unique allies such as the Pied Piper. Then she modernized it a bit with this agency that wants to take out Neverland in a war that only children can win cause of course only children still ha ...more

3.5 stars

I really struggled to rate this eBook. I suspect it might have got a higher rating if I'd not been reading it in dribs and drabs between doing other things.

That said, I am enjoying it. I am particularly appreciating that the YA "love story" is unfolding at a more realistic pace than most books I have read in a similar genre. At times, I do find Gwen's observations a lot more adult than her age would suggest, but I guess that's also quite common with YA novels. This edition felt longer

3.5 stars. I gave this a half star more than the first book because of the Piper's character, who I really enjoyed BUT it took him so long to show up! There wasn't as much Neverland in this book and a lot more Gwen, both of which are things I disliked in the first book. The only thing that was pretty okay was the relationship between Gwen and Jay, I liked how slowly their relationship progressed, it felt so much more real than a lot of other YA relationships.

I'm bummed that I don't like these b

Initial Thoughts Upon Finishing
Gah I just love this retelling of Peter Pan! I think I preferred the first book but the second has me so excited for the conclusion I can't even. There's less Neverland in this one which is probably why I felt it dragged just a little at some points but it's a great book for further exploring Gwen's character. I love how different this retelling is by swinging it into YA - AND THE COVERS ARE GORGEOUS.

Great second book. Really enjoying this series. It's a fun weekend or vacation read. It brings about some light social issues and is highly relatable in terms of the way we all have felt caught between clinging to childhood and being forced to grow up. It provides interesting perspective on these fronts. Looking forward to the final installment.

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
Pipers Price picks up a couple of weeks after the first book left off; Gwen is back in Neverland and is collaborating with Peter and the Lost Boys in an effort to save Neverland once and for all from those in reality who are after it's magic. They have devised a plan to locate the Piper in an effort to (hopefully) garner his support and help in preparing for a final showdown with the grownups for the magic contained in Neverland.

The gang is all back in this sequel of the Peter Pan retelling, "The Neverland Wars" by Audrey Greathouse.
In "The Piper's Price" we rejoin Gwen and Peter as they try and find a way to contact the Piper and get his help to recruit children in order to save Neverland.
After the ending from the first book that left me hanging, I was happy to be back in this world and find out what had happened with Gwen and Peter. It was enjoyable to find out all of the answers to the questions I had swimming around

The Piper’s Price continues all of the best elements of The Neverland Wars with an added layer of sophistication. The plot is just as fun and engaging, and Greathouse manages to craft more nuance into the story’s themes.

In this book, we continue to track Gwen’s struggle with growing up as she’s torn between her desire to stay in Neverland and her draw to the adult world. She struggles with regular issues like boys and relationships, and the question of how to assume the responsibilities of adul
