Library Of Souls By Ransom Riggs – Book Review #41
Library of Souls is the third book in the Miss Peregrine series. I thought it was the final one but the other day I saw a fourth is being released in October. I pre-ordered it from Amazon 🙂
Library Of Souls
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
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.
It took me much longer to read this book than it did the first 2. I enjoyed it but it wasn’t as gripping. I found myself only reading at bedtime whereas with the first 2 I kept wanting to read them whenever I had a spare half hour.
It was a good ending, the story was rounded off nicely which is why I thought it was the end of the series. I was very happy, however, to see a fourth book, A Map Of Days, due for release on October 2nd on Amazon 🙂
