- Customer Reviews:
“A high-intensity tale….Readers, particularly Artemis Fowl fans, will be skipping meals and sleep to get to the end.”
― Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Utterly charming…perfect for the Potter crowd.”
― Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Rich fantasy that is as engaging in its creative protagonists and villains as it is in the lightning-paced plot and sharp humor.”
“Landy keeps the action brisk, his characters slightly macabre, and uses humor to take the edge off.”
― ALA Booklist
“Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humor, magic and adventure. Once you’ve met Stephanie and Skulduggery, you’ll be clamoring for a sequel.”
― Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series
About the Author
Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."

The good think about having characters who are all centuries old is that it allows you to constantly reveal new things about them in order to create a story, and while this can feel a little too convenient at times, the ancient art of not fixing what isn't broken dictates that as long as Derek Landy keeps pumping out incredible books, I should probably shut my mouth and leave the writing to the experts.
"I trust you with my life," he replied," just not necessarily my car."………
I was starting to lose faith in Mr. Pleasant after book 8, as the pther two weregetting worse and worse, but I kept reading, and my reward is this- one of my favourites!
When a serial killer captures Valkyries younger sister, Alice, and leads her on a mad treasure hunt to find her, Valkyrie is so desperate that she willingly takes on dangers all by herself wthout even thinking to call her partner, and all Omen Darkly can do is lie there and watch. Six hours- will Valkyrie make it on time to save her sister?
Meanwhile, Skulduggery has partnered with *********, along with ****** ****, because he thinks ********** **** has ********. *********'s son is also in the clutches of ********** ****. So the fragile truce holds ********* from putting her evil plans into action.
Do you want to know who all those people whose names I swapped out for *s are?! Then you'll have to read the book!
A man becomes god in his own house, a tenage boy gets a few surprises, good and bad, and Kes is continuing to appear. With a crazy cult on the hunt for an unspeakable evil, and Valkyrie forgettinf the rest of the world, you'd be amazed at how much happens in six hours, and even more so by the insane magic that takes pkace when the clocj strikes midnight…
Landy follows through with yet another brilliant book, so for all his fans, BUY IT! And for all his not-fans, BUY IT because if youre going to give Skuldugfery another chance, do it wih tthis book! A fab continuation of our fave skeletons magical adventures.

"Oh, I'm sorry", he said. "Valkyrie, hug him."
"I'm hugging him with my mind."
"You two are weird."
Average. I am going to persist and buy the next one in the hope it will be better.
(I am an adult read of 40 odd rather than the YA they may be aimed at)
Landy’s ability to intertwine action, mythology, pathos, sadness and tear jerking moments of genuine humanity are all wonderfully balanced out with some of the funniest one liners and dialogues to be found in literature today.
All delivered using some of the strongest and most loved characters you could ever meet.
Keep it up Derek because at the moment they are a pleasure to read. Cant wait for No.12
