In this thrilling conclusion to the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children trilogy, Jacob Portman, Emma Bloom, and their other peculiar friends, along with the last remaining free ymbryne, Miss Wren, have been captured by wights and are on their way to the wight’s stronghold. In a twist of fate, Addison, the peculiar dog, manages to rescue at least Jacob and Emma. With the future existence of peculiardom resting on their shoulders, not to mention their friends’ lives, Jacob, Emma, and Addison enlist the help of the mysterious Sharon to take them on a journey through loops to a horrible time in London’s history, that of Devil’s Acre, the worst Victorian slum. Filled with addicted peculiars, wights, hollowgast and the empty soulless faces of the loop inhabitants, Devil’s Acre holds the worst things in peculiar history, where peculiars are sold as slaves, driven to madness, and even killed. There, their little group lands, not without some trouble, at the house of Mr. Bentham, who wants to help them succeed against the wights and their leader Caul. As the final battle commences, Jacob must wield his peculiar power to its utmost and what follows is a heart-stopping revelation of friendship, love, and betrayal that will have readers feverishly addicted until its satisfyingly sweet end.
This is one of those series that will make you want to be friends with the characters #bookbffs. All of the peculiar children are so vividly real and the world so interesting that you can’t help but want to be a part of it in some way. I just love, love, loved that last chapter or two, and do not want to spoil it for readers, so I am afraid I can’t say more. However, this is one series I will be pushing, and am pretty confident there will be more than the one movie coming in December!
