The sequel to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, this second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.
Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.
Ah, the terror to find out whether a sequel lives up to the first installment of the series! Hollow City, the follow-up to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, was a highly anticipated novel. Surprisingly, many readers have found the sequel to be much more fast-paced and filled with action in comparison to the first book. In the world of books, this is a rather rare event.
Hollow City is full of wondrous new characters, suspense, and a few rather riveting and unexpected surprises. Riggs has maintained the development of the eccentric characters, coupled with the vintage pictures every reader looks forward to. One downfall is that the book is packed with action in a manner which may sometimes cause the reader to lose track. Nevertheless, it is an enthralling sequel and lives up to the hype surrounding these books.
