Book review & Competition: Skulduggery Pleasant-The dying of the light

Skulduggery Pleasant is a number one best selling book series by author Derek Landy.

The books follow the character Skulduggery Pleasant, an undead sorcerer and detective, with his partner Stephanie Edgley who goes by the name Valkyrie Cain, and numerous magic-wielding allies.

The series is aimed at teenagers and a adults.
There are 10 other books in the series and a website too.


I was thinking the book would be good for Ryan and I’m sure he will love it. What I did not anticipate was just how big the book is.


The book has almost 600 pages to get through and although Ryan is a very good reader, I do think this may just be a little tough for him at the age of 10. Therefore I’m going to have a read of it myself and then keep it for him when he is a little older.


The Dying of the Light is, I hear the final chapter in the series. Here is a short book sypnosis.

Valkerie. Darquesse. Stephanie. The world ain’t big enough for the three of them. The end will come…

The War of the Sanctuaries has been won, but it was not without its casualties. Following the loss of Valkyrie Cain, Skulduggery Pleasant must use any and all means to track down and stop Darquesse before she turns the world into a charred, lifeless cinder.

And so he draws together a team of soldiers, monster hunters, killers, criminals… and Valkyrie’s own murderous reflection.

The war may be over, but the final battle is about to begin. And not everyone gets out of here alive…

The book is produced by Harper Collins and available to purchase for just £7.00 on AMAZON
