The story picks up where the first left off, with the children on a boat escaping from the wights. This book is never dull, full of adventure on their constant quest to save their ymbryne Miss Peregrine. I loved getting back into the Peculiar world and learning more about the history and discovering new people along the journey. Each character is distinct and everything that happens is natural and intriguing.
Some impatient readers may feel that this could’ve been shortened, or added to book one, (impatient readers should not read fantasy 🙂 ) as some of the scenes may not have been necessary to the action of the story. Instead providing more information about the fantasy world or showing us more Peculiar people. But I loved it and think that fantasy stories like this should be allowed to be unfolded in their own time. This book is riveting and because of this a quick read. It is a young adult or children’s book? I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series: Library Of Souls.
Ransom Riggs is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. He is also the author of Talking Pictures (Harper Collins, 2012) and The Sherlock Holmes Handbook (Quirk, 2008). He is a graduate of the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts and lives in Los Angeles.
The bestselling series together for the first time in a beautifully packaged box set - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and its two sequels, Hollow City and the (newly released) Library of Souls.
Jacob Portman is back in Florida and this time Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, but when he finds a secret underground bunker owned by his grandfather Abe, Jacob is thrust into a new adventure.
