A New York Times #1 best seller
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 .

I can't get enough of the way Ransom Riggs writes. I love the imagery and found myself getting pulled into the story. I great sequel to a wonderful story.

Beautiful. I wish there were more books in the series. I watched the movie first, and that was great, but the books are so much better.

What a dark, dark series this has become! I knew from the photos and first one that this was definitely one of a kind, and I would never forget how much I was creeped out at first looking through it. With the plot spirally higher and higher with anticipation and interest, I dove into this book so fast and came out of it very satisfied. The end was not what I expected, but I still think I am okay with it for all its worth. I genuinely think people should give this trilogy a try, despite how scary it may seem. The darkest corners hide all the most interesting things, no?

While I will be the first to admit it was a little slower in the action department than the first two books in the series, I appreciate how this one wrapped up the story. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.

Good read. I was looking for the movie from the start of the series and found this and was like, got to get it. Was good from the beginning all the to the end. The author writes well and you feel like a part of the story as well. Loved the ending. Was not what I expected.

I finally finished this book!, With honesty though, I pereffered the other two over this one, This one was a little bit more difficult to keep track to. I did enjoy it, Just not enough, The extra characters added also made it hard to remember who was who, But I still liked it enough!

The Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series is a great story and worth the read!

This is my new series jag for this summer - think of crossing Harry Potter (magical and tainted with evil) with Series of Unfortunate Events (depressing) and add a big topping of horrific sprinkles. It's like riding a roller coaster through a haunted world - you go up up up up, SCREAM to your heart's content, realize everyone's (just barely) come through, and then it starts all over again!

Can't put them down.

What is BRILLIANT is the author's creativity in assembling a group of old abandoned photos and inventing a story that ties them all together.

I have talked about this series to so many people, and I don't even like horror. This is just doable for me.

I found each book in the trilogy to be better and better. Usually when you get to the last book, the ending seems a bit flat. But I really loved the ending! I recommend this series to all my friends! Definitely a set of books to own for your shelf!
