[R] Library of Souls, by: Ransom Riggs

Library of Souls
(Miss Peregrine's #3)
by: Ransom Riggs


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

I have to admit that today is the day of reviewing books that I did not read this year. So... Library of Souls. WHAT A MAGICAL END FOR A MAGICAL SERIES! I love it soooo much. After waiting a lot for this book to come out... I got what I wanted.
“No one can hurt you as badly as the people you love.”
As you all may know if you read the books, the story goes around out little Peculiar Children and their mission to save the Peculiar world and the real world. Our main character, Jacob just discovered that he can control hollowgasts and its a new ability that he fully intents to make use of. The peculiars were separated by the villians and Jacob is trying to rescue them alongside with Emma and Addison (a talking dog). But Jacob does another friend, a hollogast, that simply follows him around and rescued themselves when they are most in danger. But the danger is bigger than any of them. Miss Peregrine's evil brother is trying to reach the Library of Souls to steal them and simply destroy the world like an atomic bomb. Jacob must fight and maybe lose eitherway, but he has to save the world, right?
“An opportunist disguised as a friend can be every bit as dangerous as an outright enemy.”
You know, thinking back when I read this book... it was bitter sweet, because I certainly wanted to end the book, but I did not wanted to really end. Riggs's pecular world was beyond my imagination and it was really good to see so many regular things that were actually peculiar. Riggs also show us that being peculiar is to have a superpower, just to be unique is reason enough to be peculiar and that is something I'll never forget.
“It had become one of the defining truths of my life that, no matter how I tried to keep them flattened, two-dimensional, jailed in paper and ink, there would always be stories that refused to stay bound inside books. It was never just a story.”
The end is really really bittersweet. Jacob has to come back to his time, right? What a good surprise when we reach the end and everything ends like it should. I would never thought of a better ending that what Riggs made. Abso-freaking-lutely perfect!
“These strange-looking people weren’t peculiars. They were nerds. We were very much in the present.”
Oh, boy, you haven't read it? What the hell are you waiting for?
