Product description

With Serpine dead, the world is safe once more. That’s what Valkyrie and Skulduggery think. But when the notorious Baron Vengeous makes a bloody escape from prison, dead bodies and vampires are suddenly showing up all over Ireland! With Baron Vengeous after the deadly armour of Lord Vile, and pretty much everyone out to kill Valkyrie, the daring detective duo face their toughest challenge yet. But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is much closer to home? This bone-chilling sequel to Skulduggery Pleasant reunites brave Valkyrie with Skulduggery, the wise-cracking dead detective!

    There is a huge secret about Lord Vile and Skullduggery In the later books so this is why he hates that armor.

    It is a fantastic book about skulduggery Pleasant, who is a magic detective and is dead, and Valkyrie Cain ( Stephanie Edgley ) who is his kind of side kick.
