“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.” ― Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Extraordinary Children
Penguin Teen announced Tuesday that The Desolations of Devil’s Acre, the final book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series, will come out February 23!
“‘The Desolations of Devil’s Acre was many years in the making,” Riggs said in a statement about his sixth Peregrine novel. “I spent a decade in this world, building and tending to these characters, and it’s a bittersweet thing to finally bid them goodbye. I’m going to miss them. But I’ve tried to give them the send-off that they, and the readers who’ve stayed with me all this time, deserve.”
Here is a sneak-peek at what the sixth and final book will hold:
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.
