Product description

Like horror? Like thrills? Like hunting down evil supernatural baddies? Leap into action with Skulduggery Pleasant, the wise-cracking dead detective! Stephanie’s Uncle Gordon wrote horror fiction. But when he dies, Stephanie finds that though his books may have been horror, they weren’t exactly fiction! Pursued by evil forces intent on finding a mysterious key, Stephanie finds herself facing vampires, demons and über-bad baddies. As all hell breaks loose, can the sleuthing skeleton of a dead magician save Stephanie’s skin?

Crackling with lightning-sharp wit and bone-crunching action, this is one horror series you’d be dead crazy to miss!

    “What is it?’ Stephanie whispered. ‘That, my dear Valkyrie, is what we call a monster.’ She looked at Skulduggery. ‘You don’t know what it is, do you?’ ‘I told you what it is, it’s a horrible monster. Now shut up before it comes over here and eats us.”

    A must-read for fantasy fans! One of the best children’s urban fantasy books ever. The plot is interesting, the heroine strong and intelligent and the book is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny. 11/10!
