Library of Souls(This is a late post as I’ve finished the book since September first week)

The thing I like about Ransom Riggs’ Peculiar series is how he manages to introduce a familiar story without making the reader liken it too much to something else. While his series received multiple praises and even got commended for being “the next Harry Potter”, you can’t help but be thankful for the author’s original take on what a peculiar gang of kids would do if they had weird powers.

I liked books 1 and 2 so it went without saying my expectations from the last of the trilogy would be pretty high. I now realize I expected a little too much.

Love the cover; better and creepier than the first one.

I’ll get to this quick. After reviewing the first book, I figured the second book would be a good try. It just so happened that I saw this at our local bookstore a month ago or something (I was reading Paulo Coelho’s Eleven Minutes then) and I somehow couldn’t wait to read this.

In a nutshell, the book is far, far better than its predecessor. As sequels should be, Ransom definitely upped the ante in this one, making this much more action packed and much more mysterious than the last one. The book was worth every cent in my opinion.
