“Map of Days,” great addition to series


Ransom Riggs released the fourth book in his series entitled Map of Days on Oct. 2. The series follows sixteen-year-old Jacob Portmans discoveries about the life of his grandfather’s after his painful and mysterious death just months prior. One of which is the orphanage his grandfather lived in during WWII, where the very same orphans were still alive inside.

The third book ended seemingly with no loose ends, however after just a couple of pages, Riggs set up the premise for an entire new adventure. The story was thoroughly engaging and I found that I couldn’t put the book down. I finished the entirety of it in just two days. The story continued in a way that wasn’t forced at all, the fourth book worked well with the other three. Characters that were added also worked to the stories benefit, they all harmonized to create a interesting and suspenseful story.

The ending however, upset me solely because it left on a cliffhanger and now I have to wait for the next book to come out. Overall, the fourth book was a wonderful addition to the series and  I am very excited to see how the rest of the story plays out. I’d give Map of Days a 9.5/10.
