All of the events took place in the past, present, and future but undetermined where the location was. Throughout the book, the main protagonists traveled numerously through a time loop. A time loop permits anyone who passes through it, to transit to another certain place of time. A time loop is also an area where a day is repeated endlessly. Those who have gone through the time loop and has exited it, will age gruesomely from the last time they have gone in the time loop.

souls. Similar as hollowgasts, they hunt down
peculiar souls to feed on. As to their appearance,
Wights look specifically like human. Except

About the author
There is no doubt that Ransom Riggs has amazingly written the masterpiece, "Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children,". But, what more about the author? Well, Ransom
grew up in Florida, but currently is living in Los Angeles. From child, to teen, to adult he was always told ghost stories and British comedy, which explains the novels
he writes. He has wrote novels such as the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children trilogy,
The Sherlock Holmes Handbook, and taking pictures. The earliest book that he has written was the, "Library of Souls" which came out this year.
I would highly recommend this book, for those who enjoy a good scare, interesting humor,
or are in for some suspension. The book was given numerous considerable awards and reviews by authors who enjoyed reading the trilogy . Many of which were Harry Potter fans, as it was said that they loved the books because it relates to the Harry Potter series. The books were really overwhelming and quite franky, I could not stop reading. Large numbers of fans, including myself, were dissatisfied when the series has ended. Therefore, I recommend this book to anyone who thinks that the series itself seems interesting.
Towards the end of the book, Miss Peregrine, Jacob, Emma,and the other peculiar children are kept hostage by Caul, and also Bentham who the peculiar children learned, betrayed them. During their arrival at the Library of Souls, Jacob was shot in the chest by Caul because he was no longer needed or useful to him. But Jacob later found out that the scarf that he was wearing that was given to him by Horace, was completely bulletproof. With chaos raging through the Library of Souls, no one notices Jacob on the ground, completely unharmed. Except for Bentham who states that he extremely regrets betraying them, and will have to sacrifice himself to overthrow Caul. In the end, Bentham uses Abraham's soul to turn himself into a Peculiar-God to brawl with Caul. While the battle rages on, Miss Peregrine follows Bentham's instructions to destroy the Time loop. Jacob, Emma, Miss Peregrine, Addison, and the other peculiar children leave in success, leaving Caul and Bentham to perish.
Miss Peregrine and the other peculiar Children are captured by Caul and his wights, and it's up for Jacob and Emma to rescue them. But, both Jacob and Emma have absolutely no clue whether or not they are still alive. Going on the dangerous trip to find them will only mean a big risk of getting injured or even killed. Plus, Caul and his army are growing stronger and stronger, which leads to Jacob and Emma with no army whatsoever. Yet, Jacob and Emma are determined to save them even if it means risking their lives. The question is, will they make it?
