When the first of those secrets turns out to be a tantalizing hint of a famous haunted treasure, Captain Hook and his band of cutthroat pirates quickly join the hunt.

Editorial Reviews

There is something irresistible about a cave. Shining Pearl had warned James and the other Lost Boys that the Cave of the Dark Wind is a dangerous place, occupied by a fearsome creature, but for the youthful adventurers, this shadowy cavern was pleading to be explored. At the beginning, this naïve daring seemed justified by their discovery of a tantalizing clue about a long-sought haunted treasure. But the mood changes instantly when Captain Hook and his bloodthirsty gang of pirates join the plunder hunt. Before they can say "Shazam!" the boys are fleeing for their lives, plunging deeper and deeper into the gaping earth. A mesmerizing adventure story.

awsome book

Through their friend Little Scallop and Shining Pearl the four Lost Boys learn about a dangerous cave that can make people blind.  Peter is away the Lost Boys want to play...well at least James does.  He has to convince some of the others. It was odd reading a Never Land story without Peter Pan and I thought I would immediately dislike it but I did not.   I actually loved this story and the tying in of Hook, Smee and other pirates. I don’t know how many of these Never Land books were created but I am enjoying the new tales.  Some of the book reminded me of the SyFy movie that premiered last year called Neverland which was wonderful.   This book just captured the fun and excitement of unknown adventure.
