    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.

    From an impluse buy to a firm favourite

    Picked this up on a whim and have been so impressed by it that I've now bought all the others in the series. There are elements of Potter, Dresden an..Show More »

    With Serpine dead, the world is safe once more. At least, that's what Valkyrie and Skulduggery think, until the notorious Baron Vengeous makes a bloody escape from prison, and dead bodies and vampires start showing up all over Ireland.

    Not for the deep thinker, science fantasy fun

    Well read and moved along at a good pace. Character descriptions painted a clear picture in the head.

    The third book in Landy's fantastically imaginative and illustrious series about our favourite dead detective, Skulduggery Pleasant and his wonderfully cheeky and inquisitive side kick Valkyrie take us through another journey which promises to be filled with adventure, dark mysterious meetings, and classically funny moments. With all the characters read once again by Rupert Degas 'The Faceless Ones' will enchant, enthral and keep you gripped as they take you through another adventure in this brilliant series.

    Amazing!!!😖

    Put me on the edge of my seat once again. The story always make me think how cool would it be if it was all real!?

    What can we say, without giving too much away? Not much, is the answer. But what we CAN say is that this book is hilarious, it's tense, and it's packed with all the eye-popping action, crackling one liners and imaginative set pieces you've come to expect. There's a new threat to our plucky heroine, of course. But that's not all. There's also the little fact of the Big Bad, the uber-baddy who's going to come along and really, really destroy the world. (Really.)

    Almost totally fab

    I do love the Skulduggery Pleasant series, such witty and well plotted adventures and this is one of my favourite stories. Rupert Degas is a wonderfu..Show More »

    War has finally come. But it's not a war between good and evil, or light and dark - it's a war between Sanctuaries. For too long, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they're going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making.

    Brilliant as usual

    The final shocking, heart-wrenching book in the jaw-droppingly stupendous Skulduggery Pleasant series. Valkerie. Darquesse. Stephanie. The world ain't big enough for the three of them. The end will come...The War of the Sanctuaries has been won, but it was not without its casualties. Following the loss of Valkyrie Cain, Skulduggery Pleasant must use any and all means to track down and stop Darquesse before she turns the world into a charred, lifeless cinder.
