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.

My Thoughts

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 🙂

    This sounds very entertaining and I love the cover photo! Are they children’s books or adults’ books?

      They’re YA books. I bought them for KayCee but she hasn’t read them yet because she’s on book 9 of the Lemony Snickett series and she started the secret books series by Pseudonymous Bosch.

    What a fabulous surprise to find that there’s another book in a series you’ve enjoyed. I hope you enjoy the fourth book too :o)

    Shame it wasn’t as gripping for you as the first two. Will wait to hear your thoughts on the fourth book #readwithme

    I’ve only read the first in this series but I must get back to it – perfect for autumn/Halloween reads! #readwithme
