(from cover blurb)
Sixteen year old Jacob has an uncanny ability to lead peculiar companions and control evil creatures as he tries to rescue Miss Peregrine and other captured children from a fortress. Time travel between modern London back into Victorian days and into the wretched Devil’s Acre offers a jolly good pager turner. His girlfriend, Emma, with fire at her fingertips, and Addison, a talking dog, offer valuable help on this treacherous journey. It’s difficult to figure out who’s evil and how the players fit into the puzzle. Thus Jacob and friends must trust each other and use their instincts to survive.
Library of Souls is an outstanding book and truly a worthy end to the trilogy. It captivated my imagination and interest, and can be enjoyed by both YA or adult audiences. Plunge into a peculiar world. It’s worth the read.
