Description

Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: detective, sorcerer, warrior. Oh yeah. And dead. Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back - just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down. With Valkyrie struggling to protect her dark secret, Skulduggery and the gang are more vulnerable than ever, just as a plague of body-snatching Remnants are released upon the world...

Reviews

Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant: "It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun." - The Guardian "A gripping debut." - The Observer "...remarkably accomplished." - Irish Times "Reading [this book] is like riding a rollercoaster." - Irish Independent "With writing of this standard, a rattling plot and definite potential for cross-over appeal, it's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired." - Irish Mail on Sunday "A rip-roaring adventure." Irish Sunday Independent

Author description

Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."
