Cidade dos etéreos dá sequência ao celebrado O orfanato da srta. Peregrine para crianças peculiares, em que o jovem Jacob Portman, para descobrir a verdade sobre a morte do avô, segue pistas que o levam a um antigo lar para crianças em uma ilha galesa. O orfanato abriga crianças com dons sobrenaturais, protegidas graças à poderosa magia da diretora, a srta. Peregrine.

Neste segundo livro, o grupo de peculiares precisa deter um exército de monstros terríveis, e a srta. Peregrine, única pessoa que pode ajudá-los, está presa no corpo de uma ave. Jacob e seus novos amigos partem rumo a Londres, cidade onde os peculiares se concentram. Eles têm a esperança de, lá, encontrar uma cura para a amada srta. Peregrine, mas, na cidade devastada pela guerra, surpresas ameaçadoras estão à espreita em cada esquina. E, além de levar as crianças a um lugar seguro, Jacob terá que tomar uma decisão importante quanto a seu amor por Emma, uma das peculiares.

Telecinesia e viagens no tempo, ciganos e atrações de circo, malignos seres invisíveis e um desfile de animais inusitados, além de uma inédita coleção de fotografias de época — tudo isso se combina para fazer de Cidade dos etéreos uma história de fantasia comovente, uma experiência de leitura única e impactante.

A mysterious island.


 
An abandoned orphanage.


 
A strange collection of very curious photographs.


 
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. 

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
 
“A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.”—John Green, New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars
 
“With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it’s no wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“‘Peculiar’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies.”—People
 
“You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen
