Waterstones Says

The penultimate, rip-roaring instalment of Derek Landy’s bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series finds our charismatic anti-heroes faced with a dreadful decision which could mean the difference between survival and annihilation for humanity.  

Skulduggery, Valkyrie and Omen return in the 14th and penultimate novel in the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series - and their most epic test yet...

In a matter of days, the world will change.

Billions of lives will be wiped away in a final, desperate search for the Child of the Faceless Ones - she who is destined to bring about the return of humankind's ancient overlords.

To prevent this, Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain have one last - terrible - option: the assassination of Damocles Creed. With protests stirring in the magical city of Roarhaven, with riots and revolutions on the horizon, Valkyrie must decide who she wants to be: the hero who risks everything for a noble ideal, or the killer who sacrifices her own soul for the fate of humanity.

The decision must be made, and time is running out.

I read this book with a massive smile on my face. It had all the humour, action and sometimes heartbreak that I love about the skulduggery pleasant books. You can tell how much Landy loves writing them and it really... More
