"The Desolations of Devil's Acre" By Ransom Riggs Continues The Chronicles Of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children

Ransom Riggs' mastery of telling a story through the use of vintage pictures and poetic prose is never fading. In fact he is into the sixth installment of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series (aka Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children), which exquisitely uses said story-telling device into its maximum scary potential.

The book is titled The Desolations of Devil's Acre and it's cover, which has just been recently revealed, features a girl -- whom I assume is a peculiar  -- sitting in a comfy seat in front of more vintage pictures of peculiars like herself. The creepy part though is the hand that is poised to grab her... are your arm hairs raising yet?

Check out the official cover of The Desolations of Devil's Acre by Ransom Riggs.

The fate of peculiardom hangs in the balance in this epic conclusion to the #1 bestselling 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 page-turner, the final adventure in the beloved Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.

The Desolations of Devil's Acre by Ransom Riggs be released on February 23, 2021.
