Synopsis

September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

“A stunning achievement . . Hollow City is even richer than Riggs’s imaginative debut, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”—Boston Globe

Bonus features:
• Sneak preview of the third Peculiar Children novel
• Exclusive Q&A with Ransom Riggs

Sequel worth of the first novel
January 5th, 2015
I had high hopes for this novel because Miss Peregrine was the author's debut and there's a chance it was a dud. To my delight, the sequel Hollow City was incredibly gripping and thrust the story forward introducing even more fascinating characters and plot twists. Can't wait for the next one!

Creepy but stale
November 13th, 2014
While I enjoyed the novelty of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City didn't have the same charm for me. It seemed like it was trying too hard to fit the story to the pictures, which dampened the appeal for me. And with Jacob and the Peculiars on the run for most of this book, it felt like there were too many characters in his troupe- most were underused and it felt like Riggs was creating reasons to leave them behind; this kind of slowed down the novel. As in the previous book, Jacob was a pretty bland protagonist (oh no, another bland rich white boy who finds out he has special powers! Yawn). Otherwise, I enjoyed the story and the conceit of Jacob's world - Riggs is great at world building, but kinds of loses it when it comes to characterization.

Spooky!

Spooky but nonetheless a fun read, and not just for kids but for adults as well. It would be helpful to read the first book though.

Wow.

At times this book felt as though it was twisting just so a particular photograph could be justifiably entered into the book, but it is quite a peculiar tale...

Wanting More
February 4th, 2014
This series keeps you're stomach in knots. It is jam packed with unexpected twists that keep you on edge. If you can truly open your mind and think outside the box, this is the perfect adventure book to read. I love a book that can make you feel like you're part of the story and allow you to step away from life if only for a short while. My only regret is that I have to wait for the 3rd book to come out which will feel like forever. I hope this will only be a trilogy as I'm not a fan of long series. I'm so excited for the next adventure! Great book!
