This is a follow-up to Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children which I liked, and I liked this book just as much. This book begins where the first one left off so there is no break in time or action.
There is continuiety in this novel, no one really acts out of character, and things that may seem to be odd or unreasonable are explained at the end. I don’t want to risk giving anything away if you haven’t read the first book. But if you liked the first book, you will like this book.
The story advances, the bad guys are still pursuing, the children find friends in unexpected places, and since they are children, at times make childish mistakes. The ending is not an ending, there is going to be a third book. Overall, an enjoyable read.
The next book is due to come out in 2015. It takes Mr. Riggs so long to write these books because he’s a coal miner by day (I don’t know if he really is, that is just what it says on his website).
