It’s 1838 and London is gripped by orchid fever. Charles Darwin’s diary turns up Higgins’s bookshop, closely followed by two ex-bodysnatchers and a peculiar fellow with small teeth.

Why do they want the diary? Could it have something to do with the terrifying painting of an orchid it contains? And what about the withered orchid that Emily took home to Mrs Trevelyan’s Academy for Young Ladies?

Before he knows it Julius is spinning through time and parallel realms in a race to rid London of the soulcatcher and a future too horrible to imagine.

Julius and the Soulcatcher is a fabulous time-travel adventure full of richly imagined characters and intricately crafted time twists, an exciting sequel to the much-loved Julius and the Watchmaker.

‘A steampunk thriller uses Victorian science as a framework for cinematic monster goofiness in 1838 London...The book closes with drama enough for a sequel; action-happy readers will be hoping for it.’ Kirkus

‘The atmosphere of 19th century London is captured credibly in this strange tale, with colourful and captivating characterisations of heroes and villains alike...[a] chilling, labyrinthine sequel.’ Magpies

Read the #1 New York Times best-selling series before it continues in A Map of Days.

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
