Ratings: 4 Stars
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 book is the most heart-skipping of all the three books of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children. Why?
In this book, Emma Bloom and Jacob Portman became fearless and more braver than before. Jacob’s peculiarity became more powerful than before and he can control it more than before.
What is my favorite part of this book?
Aside from the romantic thing going on between Emma and Jacob, my favorite part is when they met Mr. Bentham. They found out what the Library of Souls is and the machine he was living on. What kind of machine? Read the book to find out!
Well, this machine will only work with a hollowgast. Mr. Bentham searched for his friend (Jacob’s grandfather) to get him a hollowgast for the machine. But instead, he found Jacob (because Abe’s already dead).
Pretending to be slaves, they followed Sharon to a place where they could get a hollow. At this part of the book (Chapter five, page 239), Jacob showed off his cool talent by putting up a show with the hollow. He told the hollow what he wanted to happen and it did. He freed the hollow and escaped with Emma and Sharon.
That’s my favorite part from the whole book. I felt Jacob’s bravery and his trust for himself.
