The conclusion of the adventures of the peculiar children finds Miss Peregrine and the other ymbrynes held captive by Caul, Peregrine’s evil brother. The children discover that Caul is looking for a way to access the forgotten Library of Souls and make himself the most powerful peculiar in the history of Peculiardom. With help from unlikely sources, and adventures in unimaginable loops, Emma and Jacob must find a way to stop Caul before he succeeds in his mission. If they fail, it could mean the end of peculiars.
Though this wasn’t the best book I’ve read in a while, it is a solid end to a great series. I thought Jacob’s new power was a fantastic idea, and I loved seeing him gain control of it. I did think the book was a bit long (we see the same kinds of conflict over and over), but my love for the characters made up for the parts that could be cut. I know this is supposed to be the last book, but I could totally see a spin-off series popping up — we’ll see! Also, don’t forget that the movie just came out!
