Booklist - 02/01/2020 The pulse-pounding fifth volume of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series continues storylines introduced in Map of Days (2018) pertaining to the growing tensions between America’s peculiar gangs, as well as Jacob’s rescue of Noor, a powerful teen peculiar and possible player in an ancient prophecy. Miss Peregrine’s brood reconvenes in Devil’s Acre, where they try to decipher the original prophecy and puzzle out how to get Noor safely to an old associate of Abe’s known only as V. Meanwhile, as Miss Peregrine and the other ymbrynes endeavor to broker peace between the American gangs, a jailbreak in Devil’s Acre throws a wrench in the proceedings. While this book has the clear purpose of staging something epic involving the villainous Caul and the fate of peculiardom, it is more than a placeholder. Character relationships are interestingly developed, lost friends are found, boundaries tested, and more surprising history is revealed. Riggs, as always, adeptly integrates vintage photos to further cultivate the eerie atmosphere of the narrative. After this installment’s dramatic ending, readers can only hope the next one isn’t long in coming. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
