The Desolation of Devils Acre

The Desolations of Devil’s Acre (#gifted@penguinbooksya ) is the Sixth and final installment in this fantastical series by @ransomriggs

About this book:

The fate of peculiardom hangs in the balance in this epic conclusion to the 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.

I am without words for the amazing world that @RansomRiggs created in this series. The Desolation of Devils Acre (#gifted@penguinbooksya) was everything I had hoped for. This series finale had me wanting to reread everything just to prolong the inevitable ending. I have a special place for the Pecuilardom and a new appreciation for the weird and different.

Riggs has an interesting take on society, and the different groups hidden within each society. The importance of community becomes a very prominent theme through out this series, and the finale is no different.

With all of peculiardom at risk, Jacob has to make some really though choices. This epic tale of friendship and self acceptance has been a whirlwind. A story world masterfully crafted to beguile the reader. It’s dark and moody atmosphere will keep you at the edge of your seat.

I love this story world and all it’s characters. From the loving friends to the creepy villains. Although the pace can be a bit slow at certain times, this is definitely a book (and series) you want to finish.
