Reviewed in the United States on October 7, 2018
It's first edition contains a few copy edit misses which are a bit jarring early on and seem oddly sloppy. Riggs seems a bit rusty as well, and takes a while to find his rhythm with the story. Once he does, however, it's an adventure worthy of the Peculiar world, though less under the wings Miss Peregrine than ever before.
Like trying to re-fold a highway or ordinance map, 'A Map of Days' can seem pretty complicated at times, jumping from timeline to timeline up and down the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, popping into the 1930's from the 1960's and out the back door to the 2010's (and doubtless I'm not exactly accurate here). You can either try to keep it sorted out and make it make sense, or you can just accept it as it is, and just go with it.
Regardless, 'A Map of Days' is a fun read that brings growth to old friends, introduces intriguing new characters and begins to explore a new continent and its new "rules and traditions and taxonomies and histories". Ultimately we are left with the promise of many more adventures from the Peculiar world of one Jacob Portman... and the suspicion that the dot on the horizon is quite possibly a furious Peregrine keeping a (worried) eye on the goings on below.
