Derek Landy is the author of the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series

Derek Landy is the author of the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series. He doesn’t like to brag about all the awards he’s won, such as the Irish Book of the Decade, or the Red House in the UK, or all the other awards that he humbly displays on his mantelpiece.

Skulduggery Pleasant Collection 9 Books Set. Derek Landy. The Dying of the Light (Skulduggery Pleasant). Kingdom of the Wicked", the seventh Skulduggery Pleasant novel, is also the first book in what is generally known as the final trilogy in the planned nine book series - one that promises to be even more serious and more grim than the second trilogy.

Their parents hadn’t seen them in days, and no one else had heard from them. There was a fourth member of their group, a girl called Elsie O’Brien. Elsie O’Brien hadn’t. Elsie O’Brien hadn’t tried to kick her to death, after al. he didn’t remember much of it. The pain had sent jagged spikes through her mind, cutting her off from the details of whose boot came in first, or who had kicked her more, or how long she’d endured before the blackness started to seep into her vision. But she did remember the moment the air quaked, and the way.

"Kingdom of the Wicked", the seventh Skulduggery Pleasant novel, is also the first book in what is generally known as the final trilogy in the planned nine book series - one that promises to be even more serious and more grim than the second trilogy.

That is not to say that the series' trademark laugh-out-loud humour is missing - far from it. There is plenty of humour in this book, just like in the previous instalments, but the plot is more complex and the choices and decisions our protagonists are facing are more serious than ever before. The series' central relationship between Valkyrie and Skulduggery has become even deeper, as they both struggle with coming to terms with Valkyrie's possible destiny.

I've been a fan of the series since the very first book, but I have to say that to me, Landy's raised the bar considerably with the last two books - as good as the previous novels were, "Death Bringer" and "Kingdom of the Wicked" are on a whole new level; still funny as ever, still gory as ever (well, gorier - which the 11+ suggested age rating of "Kingdom of the Wicked", replacing the 9+ age rating of the preceding novels, reflects), but more serious, more complex and more mature in every way.

Skulduggery Pleasant might be the single most creative series I have ever read. In each book, Landy manages to take the concept of a walking, talking, wise-cracking, skeleton detective and his teenage partner and stretch it on for seven books so far without making it boring. Each adventure, I feel like I have read something genuine and something more incredible than last time. Landy has slowly gone from good-guy fights bad-guy to the two good-guys who might be bad-guys are fighting corrupted-normal people and a delusional, godlike, pacifist. It's almost as if he's been building up to these phenomenal final books. Everything about them, I absolutely love. The humor- another reviewer referred to it as Landy's trademark humor- the plot, the tone, the writing, and the characters. Oh, god, the characters. The most impressive thing, about this series, is that he's never had the plot overshadow his interesting, interesting characters. And he's never had the characters overshadow the plot, though the characters are at the heart of the story. In short, Skulduggery Pleasant is just about my favorite series (yes, even better than Harry Potter) and everything about it enthralls me.

Just a side note, you do realize what Derek Landy has been doing with all the two main characters' romantic interests, right? Fletcher, Celaen (hope I spelled that correctly), China (some people do like her and Skulduggery together), etc. In the end, it's all about Valkyrie and Skulduggery. Kind of ironic, considering their *ahem* alter egos.
Good book series
The latest book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series is slightly disappointing. It's still funny and the characters are great as always, but the fight sceens are unnecessarily drawn out and violent which detracts from the story. I can't wait for the next one, but I hope he goes back to developing the characters and the story
I have loved every book so far in the Skulduggery Pleasant series - this is the most enjoyable and skillfully written young adult fiction I have ever come across (and if you're wondering, I'm not what you'd call a 'young adult' any more, but don't see why I ought to let that stop me from a good read).
Blissfully free of grammatical error, logical flaw or mundane vocabulary, this book (along with the others in the series) has hilariously witty banter between characters, intensely exciting fight scenes (scenes is the right word for it, the visual imagery is rich) and a clever, engaging narrative-story. The characters just keep growing in depth!
Although the book is self-contained and you could read it as a stand-alone, I wouldn't read this without enjoying the others first.
grand star
Unlike other junior fiction that I have had to wade or skim through to encourage my children to read, the Skullduggery series is a romp. The action keeps my young son,(10), glued to the pages, and my older daughter, (14), appreciates the principal characters being mostly women.
The series has captivated the kids, and we spend some quality time discussing individual character development and possible narrative directions.
Some may criticise the graphic description of the conflicts, but it keeps the boys glued to the story.
I prefer this magical landscape to the potter series, in that the war between good and evil is far more precariously balanced, both in terms of the underlying politics and the inner personal conflict.
My teenage daughter says that you need to read this series. She guarantees that once you read the first book that steers towards the preteen age and as it goes through each book it gradually matures towards a teenage reader which you will continue to read this series.
The book itself was amazing, as usual. I was mad about the last one because of what happened to Fletcher+ Val, but this makes it seem better. Landy has outdone himself. It's just as hilarious and action packed as any of the other ones. Despite, there are still those serious moments, and a SHOCKING twist at the end. I gasped out loud... and I rarely do that.
MUST BUY. Unless you don't like cliffhangers. But then all you have to do is avoid reading the epilogue:3
