Wow, just absolute wow. This book, like the first ends in such a way that leaves you guessing. I know the first one left so many openings and answered questions, although I can’t remember what exactly my biggest issue was two years ago, I’m excited to know how this trilogy ends.

The Story:

* some names and words may be misspelled because of word interpretation via audio

After the little island the children took refuge upon was bombed and ransacked by the evils that the loop was meant to protect them from, the children are forced to cross the ocean to the main land to seek Ms. Wren, an un-captured inbrin, to help Ms. Peregrine who cannot seem to transform back into a human. A grand adventure is underway for the children and Jacob as they travel through London hunting for clues and passing through loops seeking the last remaining person to be able to help. They are meeting legacy-old allies, and seeing things that were only ever mentioned in the Peculiar story book, and meeting other Peculiars along the way.

***

This story is certainly a lot more exciting now the most tedious task of introducing the characters is accomplished. Now what ever is read is character development, the bonds and relationships and trust the children develop amongst each other as they travel through treacherous seas, and tightly hiding away in dark caverns, or running for their lives down dark corridors, constantly strengthening their bond; solidifying their alliance as a family.
