Awesome sequel opens up the world and has adventure, drama, and new lore.
This is the second book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. It starts off where the last book ends. Oh, boy, this is going to be hard to review without spoiling anything from the first or second books. While the first book is mostly on a small island where it's hard to go anywhere (not that there's anything wrong with that), this one has the protagonists on the run. They go from place to place and meet new people (some helpful, some hostile), and go toward their goal, which I won't spoil. This book has educational value in that you find out what the experience of living during World War 2 was like. The ending is shocking, but satisfying, though, like the last book, it ends on a steep cliffhanger. I like that the rules of this universe are internally consistent. This one doesn't switch genres as much as the first book, or have the same sense of mystery, but that doesn't diminish the book at all. This book doesn't have those rapper brothers from the first book in it, so there isn't any cursing, which is what kept me from giving book 1 five stars. Yeah, I hate cursing. There are some scary creatures, and violent scenes, but considering that if you're reading book 2, you must have read book 1 (or just not read the text on the cover saying "BOOK 2"), you can handle it. It's no worse than book 1. This review is pretty much pointless, because if you have read the first book (you should) you will want to read this one, and then book 3 as well.
