The fate of peculiardom hangs in the balance in this epic conclusion to the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series.

The last thing Jacob Portman saw before the world went dark was a terrible, familiar face.

Suddenly, he and Noor are back in the place where everything began - his grandfather's house. Jacob doesn't know how they escaped from V's loop to find themselves in F

Riggs never fails to create amazing characters, fascinating settings, and plot lines that take so many twists that it's impossible to know anything for sure. One thing I do know, however, is that I'm going to age a thousand years stressing about all this. I've only been into this series for ONE WEEK and not only have I finished all 5 books, but I'm already dying of the wait for the 6th.

Someone, help me.

So anyways... The ship has officially sunk. No Emma and Jacob in this book. Like we had the first trilogy with these couple, but the newest ones replace her with Noor. It is an unsettling feeling.

1) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children ★★★★☆
2) Hollow City ★★★★☆
3) Library of Souls ★★★★☆
4) A Map of Days ★★★★☆
5) The Conference of the Birds ★★☆☆☆

I didn't have high hopes after being disappointed by the fifth book, so I'm no that disappointed. It's not a one star, because I did like a few things. But I can confirm what I said in my review for The Conference of the Birds: I wish it would have stayed a trilogy. The ending of Library of Souls was great and satisfying, and while A Map of Da

I’ve come to the loop late...feeling adrift (like Olive?) after reading the first five books in two weeks. It’s like I’ve hit the Fever Ditch without book #6...

Yes yes yes yes! I was just scrolling through my want to read section and found that there was now a confirmed release date, title, cover and description for this book. I finished the Conference of the Birds in two days and now can’t wait to get my greasy mitts on the final installation into this killer series. I cannot decide whether I even want this series to end! Thank you Mr Riggs for your amazing books!

3 stars (though Not for the right reasons) The desolation of devils acre is the sixth book in the miss peregrines home for peculiar children series, or as I like to think of it; the third book in the second trilogy of the miss peregrines universe.
If we look at the second trilogy (books 4-6) and compact it to the first than I must admit even though I very much liked map of days I found myself being underwhelmed by the last two instalments of the series.
The characters spend a lot of time sneakin

THIS WAS JUST WOW WOW WOW.
I was SO hyped for this, and although there are a few things i have to say about this book, it truly delivered. SUCH a good finale!!

First of all, that opening section of the book, is perphaps, no definitely the BEST opening segment I've ever read. I was shaking, gasping and actually squeaking a little. it was so intense, and well written, hands-down the best part of this book! (view spoiler)

Quite satisfactory ending of the series. There are enough unanswered questions left for short stories or novellas (which I hope we can read one day), but the story is well rounded now, and I'm ready to say goodbye to Jacob and peculiar children.

In this final volume Mr. Riggs gives us what we've liked about the series. Adventure, friendship, peculiarities, romance, doing and experiencing things one didn't think were possible and rising above oneself. Giving us what we like, Mr. Riggs repeats hims

Let me start off by saying that the book itself, like all the others in this series, is beautiful. From the naked cover to the lush endpapers and chapter headers to the fascinating vintage photographs, the physical book is stunning.

The story picks up right where the last book left off, takes off running from there, and never lets up. Jacob Portman and his gang of peculiar friends (fire-wielding Emma, light-eating Noor, dead-reviver Enoch, and stronger-than-ten-men Bronwyn, to name a few) must j

Hi, I'm Ransom, and I like to tell stories. Sometimes I tell them with words, sometimes with pictures, often with both. I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish. I started writing stories when I was young, on an old typewriter that jammed and longhand on legal ...more
