Book Review: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

Book 3 in the Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children series.

Goodreads Sypnosis:

A boy with extraordinary powers. An army of deadly monsters. An epic battle for the future of peculiardom.

The adventure that began with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and continued in Hollow City comes to a thrilling conclusion with Library of Souls. As the story opens, sixteen-year-old Jacob discovers a powerful new ability, and soon he’s diving through history to rescue his peculiar companions from a heavily guarded fortress. Accompanying Jacob on his journey are Emma Bloom, a girl with fire at her fingertips, and Addison MacHenry, a dog with a nose for sniffing out lost children.

They’ll travel from modern-day London to the labyrinthine alleys of Devil’s Acre, the most wretched slum in all of Victorian England. It’s a place where the fate of peculiar children everywhere will be decided once and for all. Like its predecessors, Library of Souls blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

My Review:

When I finished this book firstly back in 2016, I remember feeling so devastated that it was the final book in the unique series that is Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, and then when A Map of Days was announced, I was ecstatic!

I feel like I have a whole new appreciation for this first trilogy after the second time that I’ve read them, I just relished every moment in Library of Souls, I felt Emma and Jacob’s deaparation as they were separated from their Peculiar friends, and the writing in book 3 was much more spooky and atmospheric than its predecessors! I felt on the edge of my seat throughout, and I was definitely proud of Emma’s choices near the end of the book, and seeing Jacob’s parents again definitely makes me excited and intrigued as to how much they’ll be involved in the new series!

I will definitely be starting A Map of Days soon, I cannot wait for the new era of the Peculiars!

Happy reading,
