Title: Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #2)
Author: Ransom Riggs
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publisher: Quirk Books
Release Date: January 14, 2014
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 mesmerising) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.
This story begins right where the last one ended. It was thrilling right away because the action began immediately.
The kids meet more peculiars in this story. It was a little confusing and difficult to keep track of all of the peculiars because there were so many! It also got a bit overwhelming because there was a lot of drama with the ymbrynes who go missing.
The ending of the story was exciting. It was a great cliffhanger to lead to the next book!
