Title: Library of Souls
Author: Ransom Riggs
Date of Publication: September 22nd, 2015
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.
So, this time around, I had a very important question that I never thought about until this book. So, the invisible boy: was he born invisible?? Since he doesn’t go back and forth between human and invisible, because that would have been a very strange birth for his mother.
Anyway, I really liked Emma and Jacob’s bond in this one, but I still had to try and ignore the fact that he’s sixteen, and she’s technically an old woman in a young girl’s body. Besides the romance, there was plenty of action and interesting reveals, throughout that kept me engrossed.
I wish every book had photographs mixed in with a novel because they are so cool! Overall, a great ending to this fun series!
