Vering a mysterious key Stephanie finds help from an unusual source the wisecracking skeleton of a dead wizar. Review first postedhttpsedwardsghostenginewordpressUsually if a friend of recommends a young adult book featuring a magic and walking talking skeletonwho is also wise cracking and hilarious I would have turned my nose up thinking it was too young and silly But this book proved right from the first pages that it was worth giving a chanceFirst of all I loved Skulduggery from the moment we met him He was funny smart and also badass and the author did a really good job of making him feel real despite the ridiculousness of his whole situation The world history the author created was also excellently done with great attention to detail without going on about irrelevant everyday things trust me this happens a lot in YA fantasy booksThe writing style was also really good as it was done in a really fast and suspenseful style and the plot flowed along really nicely so there wasn’t a dull moment After finishing this I was really satisfied with the way the author manages to end each book well and the amazing character development world building and general direction of the plot made me yearn for the next book Valkyrie and Skulduggery make an excellent team and I honestly at this present moment can’t see where this could go wrong because this author is so skillful

Skulduggery PleasantEarns that while he may have written horror it certainly wasn't fiction Pursued by evil forces intent on reco. I really tried to like this book I really didI failed My major issue was that it was all 150% predictable The story felt like I had read it all before A little Harry Potter with a little Mission Impossible and a pinch of X Men and a grain of blabla The character writing was superficial and especially the heroine Stephanie did not convince me at all Flat unlikeable unbelievable one dimensional From one day to the next she lives in a world she didn't know existed and guess what She is just 12 years old but scared of nothing She escapes and survives every fight no matter with who with ease and dominates Skulduggery a 400 year old powerful detective in just about every dialogue Gordon was my friend I thought I owed it to him to try and keep his favorite niece out of harm's wayWell I'm in harms way so it's not your decision any No apparently it isn'tDescriptions of surroundings are minimalistic The shop door was unlocked and he led the way in Stephanie was surprised by how clean and bright and ordinary looking it was She didn't know what she was expecting manneuins that came alive and tried to eat you perhaps There was a nice smell in here too Comforting and I direly missed fresh ideas Not recommended
