PETER PAN’S SHADOW is a new trilogy by Jeremy Menekseoglu. It tells the touching, exhilarating story of the rise and fall of Peter Pan and his Neverland, the birth and salvation of Peter Pan’s Shadow, the breaking of Tinker Bell's heart, and the struggle to flee from the most dreadful feeling known to man: despair. Telling a Peter Pan story very different from those we have known, Dream Theatre probes the darker corners of Neverland and the selfish boy who forced it into being. This is the new adventure of Peter Pan and the younger sister who believed him to be dead for her entire life; after meeting him and Tinker Bell, it might have been better if that had been the case. This dark and engaging trilogy is a fairytale as only Dream Theatre could imagine it.
