Hollow City | Ransom Riggs

This is the sequel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It is fantastic. I love them both and I'm excited that the third instalment is in the making.

What I like the most is the way the book has emerged from authentic, vintage found photographs. Riggs has woven stories threading the oddities in the photographs into a fantastical world full of...peculiar children.

In Hollow City we pick up the story where Miss Peregrine broke off. The children are abandoning the island, trying to row to the safety of the mainland. They are being hunted by the hollows and must reach London while dodging their enemies.

As they adventure on, more of the background to their loops and history of the Peculiar is revealed. It well written and well put together, a great read. Although marketed a Young Adult fiction, this can be enjoyed by all.
