Maxim Jakubowski November 2015 Highly Recommended.
The final volume in the gripping saga of MISS PEREGRINE'S PECULIAR CHILDREN both defies expectations and satisfies the reader's thirst for amazing tales of derring do, grotesque but wondrous imaginings and moving teenage relationships. The terrible battle against the peculiars wielded by the hollowgasts and whites reaches a conclusion in Devil's Acre, a Victorian London slum where treachery and extreme danger abound. Ingenious and made even more fascinating by the 'lost' photographs used by Riggs throughout to punctuate his tale. Bizarre and breathless and, again with a cast of unforgettable characters which Tim Burtons' forthcoming movie of the first volume will no doubt immortalise, this colourful and perilous world brought to life in spectacular, imaginative fashion is fantasy for people who don't normally read in the genre, and not a single wizard in sight! ~ Maxim Jakubowski
