In 1940 after the first book ends, Jacob and his new Welsh island friends flee to London, the Peculiar capital of the world. Caul, a dangerous madman, is Miss Peregrine’s brother, and can steal Peculiar abilities for himself. The Peculiars must fight for survival, again.

That's not really much of a discription, but that cover is captivating enough for me to anticipate this sequel to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. That book was a unique adventure that made me uneasy from about the very beginning. The incorporation of actual old photgraphs added an extra level of vague creepiness to a story that was completely different from what I had anticipated. I look forward to seeing how Riggs surprises me this time.
