Hollow City: Miss Peregrine #2

Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children are back in this sequel to Miss Perigrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Their loops were raided by the Hollowgast, and their ymbyrnes taken captive. Miss Peregrine is stuck in bird form and it’s going to take walking into the wights to save her.

The vintage photographs are weaved seamlessly into the story, as if the photos were taken for the story instead of the story written around the photographs.

People, when they read the first installment of this series, complained that it reminded them of the X-Men (I may have said this as well), but the motivation and world building differs so much from the worlds of the Marvel Universe that I lost myself in this world without drawing so many parallels to comic books.
