With his dying words, H — Jacob’s final connection to his grandfather Abe’s secret life — entrusts Jacob with a mission: Deliver newly contacted peculiar Noor Pradesh to an operative known only as V.
Noor is being hunted. She is the subject of an ancient prophecy, one that foretells a looming apocalypse. Save Noor — save the future of all peculiardom. With only a few bewildering clues to follow, Jacob must figure out how to find V, the most enigmatic, and most powerful, of Abe’s former associates. But V is in hiding and she never, ever, wants to be found.
Time is running out. And even as Jacob and his friends are working feverishly to decipher the prophecy, it’s warning …
When the prisons are blown to dust
And chaos reigns
Are beginning …
And the betrayers summon their king
The old ones from their sleep are torn
To come true.
An age of strife will soon be born.
With enemies behind him and the unknown ahead, Jacob Portman’s story continues as he takes a brave leap forward into The Conference of the Birds, the newest instalment of the beloved, #1 bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.
