Skulduggery Pleasant is gone, sucked into a parallel dimension overrun by the Faceless Ones. If his bones haven't already been turned to dust, chances are he's insane, driven out of his mind by the horror of the ancient gods. There is no official, Sanctuary-approved rescue mission. There is no official plan to save him.
But Valkyrie's never had much time for plans.
The problem is, even if she can get Skulduggery back, there might not be much left for him to return to. There's a gang of villains bent on destroying the Sanctuary, there are some very powerful people who want Valkyrie dead, and as if all that wasn't enough it looks very likely that a sorcerer named Darquesse is going to kill the world and everyone on it.
Skulduggery is gone. All our hopes rest with Valkyrie. The world's weight is on her shoulders, and its fate is in her hands.
These are dark days indeed. ISBN: 9780007325979 Publication Date: 18 / 11 / 2016 Pages: 416 Dimensions: 197 x 130mm
Pre-order 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 Pleasants 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 QBD, 29/07/2014
