The Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Quirk Book due out 1-14-14

Earlier this week, Quirk Books released the first of three trailers for Ransom Rigg’s sequel to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Hollow City. Riggs’ first novel was set in a shifting landscape and timescape of Wales. Jacob Portman, an American young man come to search out a mystery from his grandfather’s past find himself caught in the middle of a battle for survival between a group of “peculiar” children and mythological beasts, the” hollowgasts” and the masters bent on destroying them. With a mix of fairytale, science fiction and good old fashion mystery, the first book wove a “peculiar” story of its own. The sequel picks where the first book left off with Jacob and his new friends struggling to keep ahead of the “hollows.”

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is made all the more interesting by Rigg’s use of “found photographs” to bring the story to visual life and make it all the more intriguing. Hollow City promises the same kind of intrigue and unique flavor.

Quirk’s unique trailers only make the books all the more tantalizing!
