This second novel in the Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children series begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine's island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other surprises. Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly creepy) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight fantasy fans of all ages.

The FBI had one demand when they secretly teamed up Special Agent Kate O'Hare with charming con man Nicolas Fox - bring down the world's most-wanted and untouchable felons. This time it's the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire. The FBI doesn't know what their target looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick Fox has a few tricks up his sleeve to roust this particular Knipschildt chocolate-loving drug lord.

Really? I realize not.every single book can be 40 chapters long, but this, I think, may be the shortest one in this series! not only is it short, but aside from maybe 4 chapters, all that was done was sex! Don't get me wrong, I do love the sex sceens, but there was no work done, no mystery even hinted at or resolved. Basically, if you are in the mood of for 20 something chapters of hot sex...this is your book!

The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power. But at what price does such magic come?

A lot of time spent on Merry having sex to give other's back their powers. Not much time spent on solving crime or getting Merry back onto the throne
