Library of souls by Ransom Riggs


 

This is the third book in Miss Peregrine's peculiar children's series. If this was a great way to end a trilogy this would be one hell of an ending. It was very good. 

Jacob and Emma are on their own after the other children were taken by wights. They need to go and get their friends back and Miss Peregrine. They have to find out a way to save them so they are safe. Addison is a peculiar dog that can talk. He has a great nose and will help them sniff out where they were taken. They are also being followed by a hollow. These things you can't see with your naked eye, but Jacob can see them. He's been learning how to control them and tell them what he's wanting him to do. 

Hollows can kill you if you can't see them and his grandfather was just like Jacob. He could see them too. 

After leaving the subway, they found their way down to a boat ramp. There was this guy dressed all in a strange black cloak. He kept dropping rats out of it. Jacob asked if they could get a ride to Devil's Arc. His name was Sharon and he did boat tours. At first Sharon didn't want to help them. They finally said they could pay him but, didn't have the gold right now. He thought about it then said, sure. 

With them in the small boat, being also that they were out in the open. Because they were with Sharon, the real normal people couldn't see them. Things are always different when it comes with the loops. Where they are heading, its not a good place. 

Things ended up happening after they arrived in Devil's Arc. People here weren't nice. They were looking at them. Sharon told them both to stay close. Ambosia is addicting and many of the people here use it. What Jacob and Emma find out is that its the souls of Peculiar children. Which makes Emma quite upset. They are waiting for Sharon and they wonder off. They find the castle and a long bridge but, before they can figure out a way to get across they are attacked. 

Jacob is hurt quite badly. Emma is hurt too. After that everything goes dark. They bought to meet Bentham. He's the brother of Caul and Miss Peregrine. He explains to them who he is and right off the bat, Emma doesn't trust him. The healer did heal Jacob and Emma. 

Devil's Arc is a very dark and dangerous place because the Wight and hollows live close by. Caul, is crazy and the one thing he wants most is to find the Library of souls. He believes that it will give him great power. With someone like that it makes it even more important to get everyone back and safe. 

Will, you'll have to read the book to find out what happens. I'll just say this, its a great ending. A good over evil story is always great. Pick it up. 

Well, I'm off to start my next book. Remember to pick up a good book, you never know what you might just like.

  1. I love the cover art on the book - but I am also very much intrigued by the premise - uh oh, I think you're going to be bad for my TBR! (I must say you had me at "wights", I've been obsessed with them ever since reading Game of Thrones)
