After a delayed publication date, fans will be thrilled to know that the sequel to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is as hauntingly sinister as the first and is unequivocally worth the wait. It’s a rare sequel that improves on a series’ beginning. Hollow City excels where Peregrine was weak, melding pictures with the story to noticeably ease the narrative that, in the first book, seemed forced. A must-read!
Jacob and the peculiars are embroiled in a dangerous mystery after escaping Miss Peregrine’s island in the series starter. Picking up where the first book left off, this story follows the group to 1940s London, where they encounter strangeness even more profound. Dozens of freaky vintage photos pepper the pages.
