In book two of the Second Star series, Fighter pilot Lt. John McNeal narrowly escaped the powerful and deadly Regency and is desperately trying to come to grips with the truth about Neverland. New friendships are formed and new enemies are made as John struggles to find his place in this strange new world. They have a plan to win back their home and save their world, but there is one thing they haven’t counted on… 

Rumors of a new arrival bring the Lord of Neverland back to the city and he will stop at nothing to see that his power is unchallenged. His mission is simple: find the intruder from the Otherside, erase all memory of his existence and crush the resistance for good.
