Skulduggery Pleasant

Skulduggery Pleasant

Skulduggery PleasantStephanie leads a very ordinary life until the death of her novel-writing uncle Gordon. In his will, Uncle Gordon leaves Stephanie his mansion and everything in it. She also inherits Uncle Gordon’s mysterious friend, Skulduggery Pleasant, who just happens to be a wise-cracking, classic car driving detective, an impeccable dresser…and a skeleton with magical abilities! Playing with Fire

When a crazed stranger tries to break into Stephanie’s house, it’s Skulduggery who comes to her rescue and reveals a world within her world…a world with magic and vampires and and a slew of creepy villains bent on taking over the world. This is about as perfect a Halloween adventure as you can get – action packed creature combat, a little magic and very funny. Stephanie doesn’t have to worry, Skulduggery’s watching her back…even if he doesn’t have one! The sequel just came out. It’s called Playing with Fire and it’s just as good! Author: Derek Landy

  1. Skulduggery Pleasant is a fictional fantasy adventure with Magic, Mysteried and Mayhem!!! I highly recomend this book,once you read the first, you will be garanteed to want to read the next!!!!

    ***** = Five star rating
    (I would give it a 10 but i ran out of space)

  2. I loved this book from the very beginning…the very first word actually. I dont know why but im just addicted to this series and i would like to have all of his books but Dark Days isnt out yet… I have to wait unfotunately.

  3. i love the books read all 4
    i cant wait till the movie and 5th book
    i am addicted and cant get enough of skulduggery pleasant

  4. This was an amazing book i think that the characters were constructed with such care that it made the book real it was so hard to put down.

  5. I love the books, they are awesome, i feel like i am in the whole act and sometimes i feel like my life is changing step by step. i dont know why but when the books first came out i beleived in magic, i already beleive in it. i told my dad to film me, so then he added special effects like fire and rippling air. Skulduggery Pleasant the series have also encouraged me to write a book, i am 15 and am hopefully getting it through publishing. my main characters are:
    Jack Slay-19-police officer
    Edward Razor-37-dark hero of the east
    Miah Stephanie Razor-15-young school girl
    and there are many more that i can write down, so f any of you are interested, this book is about hauntings and unnatural beings: ghosts demons and angels.
    THANK YOU DEREK LANDY.
    PLease keep up with the Skulduggery Pleasant series and please do not give any of the characters a bad ending. i would prefer it allot if the series ended really lovingly. like Skulduggery and Valkyrie/Stephanie live happily ever after and still their parents not finding out. it is a really good book to read and diggs the mind to back of the head, stores every word to one side for further study!:)
    A PROFESSIONAL WRITER!!:)
