Synopsis/Blurb (taken 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 & Review
Finally managed to get hold of this third book and audiobook from my library. Man was it a long wait.
I did find it a little hard to get into this book at the beginning. But once I got into it, it was an enjoyable read. With more adventures and an introduction to new characters.
I was a little disappointed that this book focused on mainly Jacob, Emma and the new characters. It would have been nice to have the original peculiar children from the previous two books included.
Overall a very fun and enjoyable read, but I don’t think this was the best book in series. I still stick by my original opinion that the first book was still better. Highly recommend the series.
