So you won't keep anything from me again?

He put his hand to his chest. "Cross my heart and hope to die."

Okay then. Though you don't actually have a heart,
she said.

I know.

And technically, you've already died.

I know that too.

Just so we're clear.

Stephanie's uncle Gordon is a writer of horror fiction. But when he dies and leaves her his estate, Stephanie learns that while he may have written horror, it certainly wasn't fiction.

Pursued by evil forces intent on recovering a mysterious key, Stephanie finds help from an unusual source – the wisecracking skeleton of a dead wizard.

When all hell breaks loose, it's lucky for Skulduggery that he's already dead. Though he's about to discover that being a skeleton doesn't stop you from being tortured, if the torturer is determined enough. And if there's anything Skulduggery hates, it's torture... Will evil win the day? Will Stephanie and Skulduggery stop bickering long enough to stop it? One thing's for sure: evil won't know what's hit it.

Derek Landy had me hooked from Page 1 with a skeleton detective, strong willed, young girl who doesn’t fit in and a misfit group of friends. Twelve-year-old Stephanie Edgley is tired of her boring and miserable life. But when a mysterious man breaks into her recently inherited uncle's house and tries to kill her, she is saved by a funny, arrogant, fireball-throwing, 400-year-old detective that goes by the name of Skulduggery Pleasant, who just so happens to be a walking, talking skeleton. She is pulled into a secret world of danger, murder and magic. Make no bones about it: Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humor and adventure. Perfect for 9+. - Marcelle (QBD)

Skulduggery Pleasant Series
Skulduggery is a young man who died in a war against his worst enemy but was brought back to life to seek revenge. He eventually took down his enemy, but was left to wonder the world as a skeleton. In the first book we meet Stephanie Edgely the niece of Skulduggery Pleasant's ex- partner who died. Skulduggery then takes it upon himself to recruit Stephanie and introduce her to the realm of magic. You are brought on a journey with these to great characters that have been very cleverly put together. I really enjoy these books because they are about an everyday girl who discovers that there's more to the world than what she realizes. She meets a Skeleton who becomes her best friend and they go on crazy adventures to save each other and the world from the hands of danger. Reviewed by Ashley Weis
