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.

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.An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2014: In Hollow City, Ransom Riggs continues the story that mesmerized readers in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. With their island home compromised, and Miss Peregrine trapped in her bird state, Jacob and the other peculiars flee into the larger world and find themselves in war-torn 1940’s London. On those broken streets, with “blacked out windows staring like lidless eyes,” Jacob learns to trust himself, finds comfort in belonging, and falls over the precipice into love. As in his earlier novel, Hollow City is filled with eerily fascinating vintage photographs, and like a seasoned magician Riggs seamlessly incorporates them into a story already so well established in many ways that such a feat seems remarkable.–Seira Wilson

The 2nd book to the peculiar series, has a lot more “action” than the 1st book,could not put it down, forever a fan! This is the 2nd book to the peculiar children series, the 1st book was a bit “normal” and the ending is where things start to get peculiar. This book is full of all the peculiar children…and adults peculiars I’ve been waiting for. It is full of action and it is where Jacob starts getting into the full abilities of his abilities though truthfully his full ability does not come out until the last book (its awesome). His love for Emma grows, his relationship with the peculiar children…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was an excellent first novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was an excellent first novel. Of course it had its limitations and growing pains of a fledgling book, but I appreciated the new story and unusual gang of characters. There is a sideshow, vaudeville theme combined with creepy photos from history. The main character is dealing with tragedy and new found extraordinary life. Young adults, of a sort, coming of age, of a sort (oooo–mystery), while they travel across South England. These ragamuffins are…

An intriguingly odd sort of book. Peculiar really describes this book and its predecessor very well. And yet despite its strangeness or perhaps because of it this series is also fascinating and compelling. The inclusion of the photographs adds to the atmosphere of the book and makes the unbelievable, believable at least for a time. I’m almost not sure what to say here because I don’t want to give anything away and yet so many things happen to Jacob and the other peculiar children that one can’t help but empathize with them…
