Hollow City begins right where Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children left off, as promised. The kids are trying to make sense of what has happened and what’s to come. With intent to save their beloved ymbryne, they go on an adventure of a lifetime. Discoveries are made of friends and enemies alike, and the future becomes one big, unpromised question mark.
I entered Hollow City over a year after reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It was taunting me from a corner of my room, and I’ll be the first to admit it, I was terrified. Rightfully so, but scared nonetheless. What was to become of my heroes, characters that felt more real than the world I lived in?
Wading headfirst, I embarked on the adventure and had trouble leaving this beautifully detailed world that Ransom Riggs had created. The syntax in this novel was even more enticing than the last. The story was crafted so carefully that I could in no means be a step ahead of the author. I was completely absorbed into the world of the peculiars.
