Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's &hellip by Ransom Riggs
4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel..., 28 Jan 2014
If you have forgotten the events of the first entry in this series or read it a long time ago, I'd highly suggest a quick re-read or a glance at the wikipedia synopsis to familiarise yourself with the events from the first book. The reason for this is that the second novel in the 'Miss Peregrine' series picks up directly at the end of the first one, with our bunch of peculiar children heading to the mainland in their rowboat to escape the bombing of their once precious loop, all the while still trying to avoid those dastardly wights.

First off, I'd like to say that this is more of a review of the series as a whole.

The 'Witch Eyes' series is unique in the fact that it is one of the very few paranormal YA books that has a gay protagonist. The gay aspect of the book isn't the sole reason for it existing, and the author tries to weave a good amount of mythology to make this into an semi-epic tale of good vs. evil in a small town. Sadly though, I think too much mythology and ideas are placed into certain things, with not enough explanation.

I'll start off with the things I liked...
