Love!

I devoured this book the moment it was in my hands. I had all of these ideas after the last book, the story line went in the opposite direction and I loved every single minute of it!

This book starts the moment the last one ends, as if it was all one book that Mr. Riggs had to abruptly cut in half. The action starts immediately, after all the last book ended in enemy territory.

The peculiar children cant be contained in their little bubble of safety when there are people to rescue and Jacob keeps going on adventures official and otherwise.

Time to do my re-read. Like immediately. I think I'm just as excited for that as I was to read it for the first time at 230am when it finally appeared on my phone. (Like I could wait for the mailman to deliver the physical copy to start reading this. Lol)

I want more

What the hell is the reason this book is 150 pages less than the last book. Sorry,but I want more! it was so fricken good. I’m kind of annoyed by the new romance of Jacob. Ransom Riggs better be coming out with a new book and soon.

What happened with Jacob?

l very much enjoyed the series, following the characters along their journey (especially with Kirby Heyborne as the narrator) and looked forward to each subsequent release. However, that has unfortunately changed with this book. I have no idea where the shift in Jacob's character came from, or maybe he was always like l perceived him in this book and I just simply did not notice until now. But for me, I had to push through with this "new to me" Jacob, whose ego, careless write-offs of others, and seemingly willful blindness to his own faults and human-ness made me want to completely stop listening to this book. I'm afraid that I will no longer be able to continue this series. Makes me sad.

Is there an end?

As I listened to this, I wondered where it was going. After Britain and North America, there is a huge world of Peculiars, Ymbrynes, Wights and Hollows yet to be dealt with. I re-listened to the first 4 books and couldn't find any clues to predict what would constitute a complete story other than fight the bad guys. I know life is like that, but I like stories with a sense of arc - one with a terminus and hopefully a pot of gold. Best clues I could find that glimpse the future are the constant mention of missing Fiona (but she has now been found) and when Jacob says "easy" and "safe" which always means that things won't be so. Perhaps the whole story boils down to where this teen boy might shift his affections next. I keep waiting for something other than the "excitement of immediacy" to explain why we have a first person narration. Maybe we will find that Jacob missed all the clues indicating that Ms. Peregrine is secret Hollow. Volume 6 is not on my wait list.

Kerby Heyborne

Kerby’s performance is incredible. It feels like there are actually numerous actors performing. Great job!
