This book (and the two that follow it) is unlike any other book I've ever read. It combines time travel, adventure, monsters, and children in a unique abd refreshing way that kept me engaged from start to finish! I also really enjoyed how Riggs included some of the weird old photographs that inspired his writing. It added to the storyline and overall the reading experience. While this book can get a little creepy at points, the thrill only made it more interesting. I loved every second of it and would recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting experience!

“The search for his grandfather's past leads Jake to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where a home for orphaned and 'peculiar' children once stood. Jake's grandfather's stories -- about invisible children, children who can command fire, children with enormous strength, and the monsters who hunt them -- can't possibly be true, but Jake's search of the island proves otherwise. This well-wrought story has just the right amount of suspense, scare-your-pants-off detail, and smart, compassionate children searching for a path forward in a twisted, topsy-turvy world.”
