Omslagtekst:
Sinds Liv Silber met haar moeder en zusje naar Londen is verhuisd, droomt ze nogal vreemd. Lange gangen met versierde deuren, in raadsels sprekende standbeelden, de nanny die haar achtervolgt met een bijl… Liv droomt zelfs over een kerkhof, waar ze midden in de nacht vier jongens allerlei mysterieuze rituelen ziet uitvoeren. Nog vreemder wordt het als de jongens echt blijken te bestaan. En het allervreemdst is misschien wel dat ze dingen over Liv weten die alleen in haar dromen voorkomen. En dat is nog maar het begin…

Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents’ invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves.

Omslagtekst:
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.
