Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Having read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs I would like to read the thrilling follow-up “Hollow City”. It follows on from Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children and features ten peculiar children, including Jacob Portman, Hugh, Emma Bloom and Millard, who have managed to escape the destruction of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and are now being pursued by an army of deadly monsters including wights and Hollowghasts, to London the peculiar capital of the World. Where they hope to find a cure for Miss Peregrine who is still trapped in the body of a bird.

After fleeing in a boat from the hollowgasts, the peculiar children are caught up in a bad storm and end up on a beach pursued by wights, so they flee into the forests of the mainland. They discover that Miss Wren, is a ymbryne and has flown to London to rescue her other fellow ymbrynes, So, the peculiar children leave in search of her, in hopes that she can turn Miss Peregrine back into a human, before her human self is lost forever. They travel with Gypsies who’s leader has a peculiar son, whilst being pursued by wights

While looking for Miss Wren they encounter new allies and a menagerie of peculiar animals together with many hideous surprises including Wights and Hollowghasts, lurking round every dark corner before making it to St.Paul’s Cathedral where they enter an underground crypt and meet two peculiar children named Joel and Peter who are echolocators and seem to share one mind. They also meet a girl named Melina Manon who is gifted with telekinesis who agree to assist them in finding Miss Wren who is the only person who can turn Miss Peregrine’s back into her human form.
