I have waited on The Conference of the Birds for a while. It was satisfying to finally get it. It was great to be back in this world.
Jacob Portman has just saved the peculiar world but his troubles are not over. When he goes on a mission to save Noor, an uncontacted peculiar, his life gets even more complicated. We follow the peculiar children into the frontier of American Peculiars to keep a prophecy from coming to pass.
My Thoughts on The Conference of the Birds
This series is fun. It is a great mix of fantasy with time travel thrown in. In the past books, the pictures were included to enhance the story. This time there were fewer pictures and they were scattered out. They didn’t feel as connected to the story.
The introduction of Noor changed the entire plot line. It introduced a prophecy into the story that I did not expect. I really liked Noor as a character though. I like the route the books are taking, but this novel felt like it was a building block for the next book. It moved the story along but did include some action. I am interested to see where the story goes next.
