Skulduggery Pleasant

By Derek Landy

 

Stephanie knew she would miss her uncle but she hadn’t expected to be left the better part of his estate when he died. His parting words through his lawyer ‘the world is bigger than you know and scarier than you might imagine. The only currency worth anything is being true to yourself and the only goal worth seeking is finding out who you truly are’, turn out to be rather prophetic.

She meets Skulduggery after the funeral but has no idea he is soon to become very involved in her life. He is a private detective; wise-cracking, off-centre, cunning and a powerful magician who mostly plays by his own rules. Through him Stephanie finds a world she never knew existed. Skulduggery is a sworn enemy of evil and Stephanie want to join in the fight. Oh and to make matters even more interesting Skulduggery is dead.

An exciting, fun and highly entertaining read that is liberally laced throughout with dry humour. It keeps you interested until the very end. Skulduggery and Stephanie are an unusual pairing but they really work.
