Teen review: Library of Souls

Library of Souls
(Book #3 in Miss Peregrine series)

by Ransom Riggs
464 pages
Appropriate for ages 11 up

Reviewed by M.S. (11th Grade)

In the final installment of the Miss Peregrine series, Jacob and Emma have to travel through London as well as through various time loops in order to find their friends, who were taken by wights. They discover new types of peculiars and enemies, some of whom they have to work with in order to save their friends, who are trapped in the headquarters of the wights. While fighting their enemies, Jacob and Emma discover the horrors that await their friends and realize they are in a race against time.

Library of Souls is not as action-packed as Hollow City was; the plot focuses a lot more on the characters and their relationships. The book is still stressful and filled with adventure, which I really enjoyed because it never got boring. I enjoyed this book both the most and the least out of the entire series. I loved how it was written and how most of the book was about the characters and their own battles, but disliked that this was the final book. I grew attached to the characters because they were so complex and relatable. I applaud Ransom Riggs for writing such an enjoyable series that had a perfect and unexpected ending. I highly recommend reading this book, and I would rate it 5 out of 5.
