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.

Conference of the Birds

I enjoyed this the 5th in the Ransom Riggs perculiar series as much as the previous 4. Whole scenario is highly imaginary, so need to be read in order.
This one is a cliffhanger. I look for to number 6.

It’s losing its luster

I enjoyed the original trilogy, but it feels now like the writing is getting strained. Too much fluff too little action. Too many of the same themes. Also one thing that’s always irritated me about his writing is his use of the plot mechanism: “Then several things happened all at once...” just feels like lazy writing. It’s now Almost as if he is just trying to further cash in on the world he built. The story is just not captivating anymore. In fact, it feels like he’s just trying to recycle his original trilogy into a different time and place with different circumstances.

Another great story

Short and sweet - this is just as good as the first four, and leaves you hoping the next book comes soon.
