The third installment in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series sees Jacob and Emma journey to the wights' headquarters in Devil's Acre to rescue Miss Peregrine and the other captured peculiarsâand save them from a fate worse than death. Giving a nod to Charon, ferryman to the underworld, they arrive in this hellish time loop via a boat piloted by Sharon, who serves as their occasional guide. Devil's Acre throws countless new dangers at the pair as they fight to reach and infiltrate the wights' fortress. Over the course of this journey, Jacob and Emma grow closer, and Jacob hones his newfound ability to control hollowgasts. As in the previous books, Riggs builds atmosphere with eerie vintage photos that amplify the curious nature of his imagined world. This novel proves perhaps too neat a conclusion to Jacob's story arc, but satisfying answers are given to long-standing questions about peculiardom, and all major story lines see resolution. Fans will easily lose themselves in this most peculiar tale of all. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is soon to be a Tim Burton film, which will swell this best-selling series' ranks of dedicated followers.
