Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #3) by Ransom Riggs

Library of Souls

Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
Series: Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #3
Hardcover, 400 pages
Published: September 22nd 2015 by Quirk Books

The adventures that began with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and continued with 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.

My thoughts about Library of Souls ~~ 

Like the other two books in this series, when I started reading Library of Souls, I could not stop. This story is so action packed and the peculiar children are in such peril that I didn't want to put the book down. It was a race to the end to find out if everyone was going to be okay.

I love the way the author incorporates some very odd photographs that he has collected into a very intriguing story about peculiar children and those who care for them. There are also those around who want to hurt them. The peculiars use the powers that they have to get themselves out of dangerous situations and to protect their secrets. 

This series is just so good and appeals to my love of the unusual and unexpected. It takes a great imagination to weave these stories of things and people who are not real, while still making the story believable. I was whisked away to this other world and came to love these wonderful characters. It does make me sad that this series has come to an end but I love this author's stories and his imagination and I will be anxiously awaiting whatever he writes next.

About the author

Hi, I'm Ransom, and I like to tell stories. Sometimes I tell them with words, sometimes with pictures, often with both. I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish. I started writing stories when I was young, on an old typewriter that jammed and longhand on legal pads. 

When I was a little older I got a camera for Christmas and became obsessed with photography, and when I was a little older still my friends and I came into possession of a half-broken video camera and began to make our own movies, starring ourselves, using our bedrooms and backyards for sets. I have loved writing stories and taking photographs and making movies ever since, and have endeavored to do all three.
