Hollow City (The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children) by Ransom Riggs.
Having slipped from the grasps of the Wights and slain a Hollow, Jacob and the rest of the gang of peculiar children are on the run. It’s September 3rd, 1940, the Peculiar’s lives have been changed for forever; some would say everything they’ve ever known is shattered and blown to shreds, both literally and figuratively. Fleeing from a band of Wights and their brutal, primitive, monstrous infantry of Hollows is difficult enough… But having only days to venture from the Welsh coast to a war-torn London while evading capture is oh-so-much worse. In the World War II version of one of the Great Capitals of The World dangers, both Hitler-caused and monster-caused lurk in every dank crevice and shadowed alleyway of the city. It’s Jacob’s job to prevent another run-in with danger but can he keep his peculiar friends safe? Will Peculiarmdom as they know it come crashing down before them? Or will they defeat the barbarous Hollows and cunning Wights?
Hollow City, Ransom Riggs’ sequel to the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children novel is even more quirky than its predecessor. Hollow City‘s unimaginable storyline is made believable by Riggs’ incredible use of rich and descriptive sentences. Hollow City, like its predecessor is a tense and gripping novel.
TEEN RATING: Action-packed and quirky, the second novel in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series is just as exciting and wonderous as its predecessor. 12+ 4.4/5
