"The blonde girl with the black lips turned to Valkyrie. 'We know,' she said. 'We've seen the future. We know you're going to kill the world...'"
Skulduggery Pleasant is back, and reunited with his original head. But all is not well in the magical world. For one thing, there's an unstoppable assassin with a face-mask on the loose... and for another thing, Valkyrie has discovered she might be Darquesse, the evil sorceress set to destroy the entire world. The problem is, she doesn't feel she can tell Skulduggery what she's learned, and so she must try to change her terrible destiny alone.
But the price of a new fate is high, and if she fails, she'll die alone too.
With Valkyrie on her own quest, Skulduggery and the gang are even more vulnerable. Which is a shame, because remember that remnant the Necromancers had? They've still got it - and they're thinking about letting it out...
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
