In this pulse-quickening sequel to ANOTHER FAUST, an ancient Egyptian spell is turning the tony Marlowe School into a sinister underworld. Will all hell break loose?Sixteen-year-old Wendy Darling and her insecure freshman brother, John, are hitting the books at the Marlowe School. But one tome consumes their attention: THE BOOK OF GATES, a coveted Egyptian artifact that their professor father believes has magical powers. Soon Wendy and John discover that the legend is real—when they recite from its pages and descend into a snaking realm beneath the Manhattan school. As the hallways darken, and dead moths cake the floor, a charismatic new R.A. named Peter reveals that their actions have unleashed a terrible consequence: the underworld and all its evil is now seeping into Marlowe. Daniel Nayeri and Dina Nayeri return to reimagine Peter Pan as a twisty, atmospheric, and fast-paced fantasy about the perils of immortality.

This is what you get when you mix Peter Pan with Secret Society by Tom Dolby . I always enjoy when popular stories are updated and this one didn't disappoint. This is the second in the Another Series (Marlowe School for me), but you don't need to read Another Faust to feel comfortable with this on...
When I read Another Pan I was so excited because of the terms that Another Faust left off on. While at first, before I even read the synopsis and I had just been staring at (yet again) another beautiful cover, I was wondering why is was titled Another Pan. Pan? Pan?! As in frying pan?No... Pan as in...
