I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but Miss Peregrine has officially jumped the shark. In the previous installment A Map of Days, I wasn't overly impressed but I felt that the book left us with plenty of information on the US Peculiars and ready for a new adventure. What Riggs delivered, however, was a pointless mess. I only gave the book two stars because of my fond feelings for the original series, but looking back on The Conference of the Birds, I feel less and less inclined to even continue with the series. Possibly the only saving grace was the slowly building relationship between Noor and Jacob along with some character development for some of our long-time Peculiar friends.

The plot however was so thin as to be nonexistent. Jacob would be off on some quest and I would forget again why he was doing it. So not only was it a random assortment of "quests," but they didn't feel important. And the same went for the photographs for this installment. In the original three, the photographs were integral to the story. They were visual representations of our main characters, but here, he has taken some interesting photos and forced them into the story with the description of characters here and there that have absolutely nothing to do with the primary story line. Riggs also engaged in the unforgivable plot device of changing information at the last moment. Even the suitably creepy ending couldn't save this book. It really was for the birds.
