Perfect ending (though I hate to admit it to myself) to this fantastic world. I have truly enjoyed immersing myself in this series.
Thanks to R. Riggs for doing it right—this final book of the series is not rushed or hastily crafted, but well-planned and well-thought out. Everything is perfect—down to the picturesque movie ending.
My daughter has gotten old enough now to be interested in the series—so I may begin Book One with her soon, launching myself once again into this world of friendly peculiars and loops and fantastical stories and old photographs.
I can’t wait...
Now going into this second trilogy conclusion, I have all those questions running through my head, but I also know with YA most, if not all the characters will survive. I like to see loss in my stories because it makes it more believable. Now was there loss, yes, but nothing that really hit the spot. This finale, for me, just suffered for being a tad to long. I feel like we could have cut some parts of this down just a tad and not lose the meaningful bits.
Desolations provided readers with great character moments, fantastic action, a conclusion worthy of fans who have been with the series since the beginning. Ransom Riggs journey with the peculiars has finally come to an end and I for one have enjoyed my time with these characters and this world.
Jacob’s journey with the Peculiars has come to an end, and it’s practically flawless. We get everything from one final adventure to an intense buildup to an epic final battle.
It ends on a heartfelt and emotional finale that’s a bit surprising for some but still felt fitting. There certainly won’t be another book series this peculiar, or have such amazing photographs. <b>A (100%/Outstanding)</b>
Jacob and Noor end up back at his grandfather’s house after the events at the end of the last book. I love how each of these books starts up right where the other left off. The continuation is refreshing and there is no need for the author to refresh minds. Caul has returned and has created a whole new breed of hollows that Jacob is unable to control. When Jacob and Noor reunite with Miss Peregrine and the rest of their friends in Devil’s Acre they find that Caul has released desolations over the area and show everyone how strong he has become. The main journey in the book is the trip made to a collapsed loop so that Noor can join the other light-eaters. The prophecy states that they will end Caul’s terror. There are many obstacles that they must overcome and many disappointments. The new peculiar characters throughout the book are an interesting bunch with unique talents. Many that have not yet been mentioned.
This book is full of fabulous pictures that the author has once again done a brilliant job incorporating into the story. It also has humor, surprises, shocks (both sad and happy), and disappointments. It’s one big rollercoaster ride that brings the reader to the end too quickly. The final battle is quick and action packed. It really keeps the reader’s attention. The ending is the best. Miss Peregrine’s surprise for her children is heartfelt and a bit of a tearjerker. It brought everything full circle for the reader and there are no loose ends. All in all: a great series.

No spoilers here, just that the ending was exactly how it should be in my opinion.
The photographs, once again, bring the story to life.
I usually pass my read books along but this series I shall be keeping on my shelf.
