At the conclusion of the first book Jacob and the Peculiar Children set out to find someone who will be able to restore Miss Peregrine and help save Peculiardom. Book to picks up from there. The children travel to London; the peculiar capital of the world, in hopes that they can find a solution to their problems.

I was so excited to dive into Hollow City; and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint. Picking up where Miss Peregrine’s ended, this book was perfect from start to finish.
I loved seeing the characters grow and struggle as they adapted to this new reality they had found themselves in. With infighting and self-doubt, Ransom Riggs did a fantastic job of capturing the emotional roller coaster the peculiar children were on.
I loved the addition of new peculiar’s, their gifts and descriptions were superb. Once again the book was scattered with weird and wonderful photographs, which help to enhance the movie like quality of Ransom Riggs’ writing.
Writing a sequel to a book such as fantastic as Miss Pere home for peculiar children is no easy task and Ransom Riggs has done a wonderful job with Hollow City. It flows just as effortlessly as its predecessor and really does justice to this series. I was just as captivated by this book as I was the first.
Hollow City did have a darker less mystical quality, as the magic of the time loop disappears and the reality of the situation kicks in you really get an emotion filled, adrenaline rush as you continue through this book. Page after page it draws you in, pushing you on as you invest more and more in these amazing characters.
It’s really refreshing to find a suspense filled book with so much heart and the ability to leave you breathless.
