Book Review: Hollow City - Ransom Riggs

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine, #2)
The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his new-found friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world.  There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine.  But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner.  And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom.
Hollow City draws readers into a richly imagined world of telepathy and time loops, of sideshows and shapeshifters--a world populated with adult "peculiars," murderous wights, and a bizarre menagerie of uncanny animals.  Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

3/5 stars (liked it)
I love the cover of this book and love how this picture is in the book and it's a character we meet.  This book was full of action as the children are always on the move.  We meet many new characters and I hope we come back to some of them in the next book.    I really like how things/characters will be described in a section of the book and then you turn the page and there is a picture to accompany the description.  The pictures are all very interesting and I think there was just the right amount of pictures.  Also I really like section at the beginning that contains the Peculiar Personae.  This has the names, pictures and description of powers of the major characters in the book.  This was great especially for someone who read the first book a while ago to remember who each person is.  Overall a very interesting book and I can't wait to read the third book in the series.
