Summary 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.

This story is unique and exciting. I haven't read anything like it and probably won't again. The book started off a little on the slow side for me, but by the end I was glued to the pages and couldn't put it down. That ending! What a way to leave it. Satisfying.


  1. This book series really is so unique.
    Not just the stories but also the photos included. I still need to read the last book, but I liked everything so far.

    1. I'm really excited to finish this series up. They have been great reads.
