Product description

Following the shocking revelations of Dark Days, get ready for episode five of our skeleton sleuth’s adventures – guaranteed to be packed with bone-splintering thrills! Skulduggery Pleasant is back, and reunited with his original head. But all is not well in the magical world. Foreign powers are conspiring to take over the Irish Sanctuary. Meanwhile, our plucky heroine Valkyrie has discovered she might be the sorceress set to destroy the world. The problem is, she doesn’t feel she can tell Skulduggery! With Valkyrie on a secret quest to prevent her own evil destiny, Skulduggery and the gang are a warrior short. Which is a shame, because remember those thousands of remnants imprisoned in the Midnight Hotel? Well, now they’re out – and they believe Valkyrie is their messiah. That means thousands of wicked souls desperate to get to Valkyrie, willing to kill anyone in their way! Oh, and because they can possess anybody’s body, they could be ANYONE. Now Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Ghastly and Tanith can trust no one. Not even each other!

    This Book is excellent! It is funny, sad, has loads of fighting scenes and makes you want to Torture Derek Landy – then again every book makes you want to kill him but this one especially, until you think about Death Bringer, but Death Bringer comes after it, so it doesn’t count!:) Anyway I have been Rambling an awful lot so back with the review -Clears Throat_ I recommend this book for any age.
