Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
In this book, we continue the adventure of Jacob and the rest of the peculiars. As Miss Peregrine is incapacitated in her current state, the group has to do their best to save her before her time runs out. Running through various time loops and using their one remaining book the “Tales,” the group does their best to find Miss Wren. Led by Jacob, decided by Emma, and gently nudged by Miss Peregrine, the group finds their way through London, the place that peculiars thrive (so to speak). What starts out as a saddened journey quickly turns to one of small hopes that they might make it in time. But when they finally get to the end of their rope to save Miss Peregrine, the group wonders if they did enough and Jacob is left contemplating his future. The ending is one that, though I saw coming, I didn’t see all of it coming.
This book is written in the same manner as the first. The language used and the structure of the writing is amazing. The story keeps you captivated from the first page to the last and the pictures help add to the story in a way you never thought possible. If you liked the first, you will love the second. I can only imagine what the third book holds.
