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...

About the Author

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."


Praise for Derek Landy: `Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.' Inis `Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.' Irish Post Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil: `An exciting novel that really ups the game from the already impressive previous novels and sets a new standard of excellence for the series.' The Founding Fields `Skulduggery himself is still as funny and awesome as ever ... I found myself laughing a lot.' Fringe Magazine Praise for Skulduggery: 'Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY 'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian 'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel.' Rick Riordan, author of the PERCY JACKSON series `Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages ... 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

It's so hard to say just how good these books are - you really have to read it for yourself.
I've been following these books pretty much since they came out & I turn 18 next month but that's no issue for me because they work for many audiences.
The characters are witty making for hilarious moments and conversations that made me laugh so much it hurt.
There are so many fights you lose count. There are also so many great moments that get you're heart beating at the tension that Landy manages to stretch out over pages and pages making your heart skip a beat. The cliffhangers at the end of each book really do effortlessly leave you craving for the next one.
Seriously, buy and reach and everyone of this truly impeccable and highly recommend series. You will not regret it.

The newest book to the brilliant, well known series, Skulduggery Pleasant. In this book, Valkyrie has to seal her real name, (Darquesse), to prevent the forseen events of the future. But when all the remnants escape the Midnight Hotel, things start to look bad. And then there's also something Caelen wants to say. Oh and one more thing, A bird poops on Fleacher.
