Hollow City Trailer
Hollow City is the follow up to Ransom Rigg's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children a few months ago, and it was by far the most unique book I've read in a long time. It begins when Jacob, upset by his eccentric grandfather's death, finds a letter that takes him on a journey to the Welsh island where his grandfather grew up. All his life, Jacob's grandfather told him far-fetched stories about orphans with magical abilities, and right before his death, he spoke of a monster finding him. On the remote island, it seems that Jacob's grandfather's stories aren't as far-fetched as he thought. He meets these children from his grandfather's stories, and they've been waiting for his grandfather to return for a long time. The unique part of the book is that vintage photographs are seamlessly woven throughout the story. They help tell the story and give the book a deliciously creepy feel.
I'm super excited for Hollow City to come out in January.
Here's a preview of the trailer.
