Publisher's Summary

The fate of peculiardom hangs in the balance in this epic conclusion to the number-one best-selling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.

The last thing Jacob Portman saw before the world went dark was a terrible, familiar face. 

Suddenly, he and Noor are back in the place where everything began - his grandfather’s house. Jacob doesn’t know how they escaped from V’s loop to find themselves in Florida. But he does know one thing for certain: Caul has returned. 

After a narrow getaway from a blood-thirsty hollow, Jacob and Noor reunite with Miss Peregrine and the peculiar children in Devil’s Acre. The Acre is being plagued by desolations - weather fronts of ash and blood and bone - a terrible portent of Caul’s amassing army. 

Risen from the Library of Souls and more powerful than ever, Caul and his apocalyptic agenda seem unstoppable. Only one hope remains - deliver Noor to the meeting place of the seven prophesied ones. If they can decipher its secret location. 

Jacob and his friends will face deadly enemies and race through history’s most dangerous loops in this thrilling pause-resister, the final adventure in the beloved Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.

*This audiobook includes a PDF of haunting vintage photographs from the book.

It's Here!

It's here!!! The moment the book was in my hands I started reading. I mean with a ending like the last one, what do you expect! Very, very worth it! If you haven't read the first five in a while, re-read them first. (The book makes perfect since if you don't. But Riggs makes a LOT of references to previous books.) (And re-reads are so much fun anyway.) This is the last book in the series (nooooo!) and it is so very worth the wait! New Hollows, old characters thought dead... loop jumps as well as action, so much action.

I really, really wish there was a novella or something where Jake and Abe Portman accidentally meet up in a loop hop. There were a lot of references to how Abe knew all about what Jake can do, but to real answers for HOW?!? And that's always a stories I've really wanted to read! ;)

Amazingly spectacular

An amazing finale to an amazing series. What an ending although it felt repetitive to the ending of book three or still left me in stunned silence. Wow.

An epic and emotional conclusion

I first discovered Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children in 2015. reading these books over the years I've felt like I've grown up with the characters, the peculiar children and Miss Peregrine almost feel like family to me. This was the perfect consluon to a tale that's been building since 2011, with a brilliant performance by Kirby Heyborne. It had my heart racing and my tears flowing, it is a bittersweet feeling, reaching the end of this journey. Thank you Ransom Riggs for telling this story, I look forward to what you have next for us. May the birds be with you.

Loved this whole series!

I loved the imagined world with all the action, imagined creatures, tactics and the peculiar world. Real life challenges, personalities and battles of good and bad, kindness toward animals....all challenges and gifts of living . So much laced into the stories! I hope there is more to come from this author.

Great ending!

I have long enjoyed the tales of the peculiar and the characters within. This was a great ending to a wonderful story. I am very excited to share the books with my children. We watched the movie- and now I regret that choice. This is a wonderful series for the early-teen into teenage reader. I thoroughly enjoyed it as an adult! Well done Ransom Riggs, and thank you for a wonderful and creative world to disappear into for a while ;-)

Powerful!

Other than the Harry Potter series this is the only other series I can sit down and read hours at a time. I'm sad this is the last one but, I've loved the journey of reading them over the years. Not only was the story line brilliant but so was the narrator voices of each characters(Especially Miss. P and Bronwyn) . I do wish we had the PDF so we can see the photos but other than that I give this book/book series 1000000 out of 10. Highly Recommend.
