When the group is then spirited away by a foul-mouthed Tinker Bell, they discover that Neverland is not some fun-filled hideaway. It’s a war zone under siege by a horde of pirates with a merciless new leader who will stop at nothing to steal the land’s magic. Tink leads a fairy army that barely holds them at bay.
Peter Pan is gone. And rest of the Lost Boys have been killed. Paco is all that remains… but he hopes that this group of teens will become the new Lost Ones. These young runaways may be Neverland’s only hope-but they’re about to learn that it’ll take a lot more than happy thoughts to win a war.
