Library of Souls

24120519Goodreads Synopsis:    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:

-    This was a great ending to the series. I loved it.

-    This book had a slightly different feel than the previous two. It was more of an action/horror book, which I loved.

-    The photos are so haunting and intriguing. The fact that they are real photos make them even more amazing. I'm so impressed that the author can find photos to fit the story or fit the story to photos. It would be hard. 

-    There were some slow moments, but I was still entertained. 

-    I really liked how everything wrapped up. There were no loose ends. I was worried Jacob was going to ditch his parents or never see his peculiar friends again, but it all works out. 

-    Great trilogy! I highly recommend them, but don't listen to the audio books! The narrator is awful. Plus you can't see all the awesome photos during the audio book.
