Rezensionen
I was blown away...Hollow City is fantastic. USAToday.com

A worthy follow-up, and as addictive a read as the first. Hypable

Hollow City mixes spooky vintage photos and action-packed storytelling to continue the story of Jacob Portman and his fellow peculiars as they travel through time to war-torn London. Dan Kois, Slate

A perfect blend of creepiness and thoughtfulness. PopMatters

A stunning achievement Hollow City is even richer than Riggs s imaginative debut, Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children. Boston Globe

What makes the series soar, however, is not the world-building, as intriguing as it is, but the heartfelt intensity of the emotions. Virginian-Pilot

Ideal for fans of Neil Gaiman and Daniel Kraus, Hollow City blends fantasy and horror into a world that will engross readers and leave them eager for more. Shelf Awareness for Readers

A tasty adventure for any reader with an appetite for the peculiar. Kirkus Reviews

New readers of the series will find this novel a treat...Fans of the first title will find this book a treasure. The only downside: waiting for the third installment to find out what happens to Jacob and his peculiar friends. School Library Journal

Riggs has created a fresh and original world in these Peregrine novels, with likable, quirky characters and a very readable style. Library Journal Xpress Review

Praise for Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children

A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story. John Green, New York Times best-selling author of Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns

Readers searching for the next Harry Potter may want to visit Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children. CNN

Riggs deftly moves between fantasy and reality, prose and photography to create an enchanting and at times positively terrifying story. Associated Press

I read all of the Miss Peregrine s Peculiar Children books and I loved them. Florence of Florence + The Machine

[A] thrilling, Tim Burton-esque tale with haunting photographs. USA Today Pop Candy

With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it s no wonder Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+ Entertainment Weekly

Peculiar doesn t even begin to cover it. Riggs chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies. People

You'll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It's a mystery, and you'll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself. Seventeen

This peculiar parable is pure perfection. Justine magazine

One of the coolest, creepiest YA books. PopSugar
