Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: detective, sorcerer, warrior. Oh yes. And dead. The Necromancers no longer need Valkyrie to be their Death Bringer, and that's a Good Thing. There's just one catch. There's a reason the Necromancers don't need her any more - because they've found their Death Bringer already, the person who will dissolve the doors between life and death. And that's a very, very Bad Thing...
Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant: 'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skulduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel' Rick Riordan 'Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure' Jonathan Stroud 'exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun' Philip Ardagh, Guardian

"I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."
