The New York Times #1 best-selling series
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.

|Review Quote*||"...enthralling..."-Children's Bookwatch|
"Fans of the trilogy's first two books will enjoy Library of Souls for its unique world, fast action, satisfying answers and a thorough tying up of loose ends."-Free Lance-Star
"I was blown away by the way the haunting photographs were woven so seamlessly into the incredible plot. And Library of Souls has simply the most perfect ending."-Nikki, Justine Magazine
"Oh, my birds, I love this book! I'm obsessed with Ransom Riggs' wildly creative world packed with heroic, heartwarming characters, supper baddies, and incredible settings like Devil's Acre and the Library of Souls."-Annalyse, Justine Magazine
"Library of Souls will not disappoint..."-Forces of Geek
"The challenge Riggs faces in Library of Souls is to match the remarkably high standard set by the first two books in the series, either the mind-bending bafflements of the first book or the edge-of-your-seat action of the second. Riggs succeeds, delivering a thrilling conclusion to Jacob's trilogy."-Paste magazine
"Readers are sure to leap right in after the cliffhanger ending of Hollow City, and they won't be disappointed."-RT Book Review, 4 1/2 out of 5 stars
"Fans will easily lose themselves in this most peculiar tale of all."-Booklist
"I enjoyed reading this book so much, the cliched, 'I couldn't put it down,' doesn't suffice."-Geeks of Doom
"...thrilling and satisfying..."-School Library Journal
