In a Nutshell: Familiar friends and foes, fresh faces, full-throttle action

This riotously rewarding return to Skulduggery Pleasant’s incomparable realm will thrill, enthral and leave fans thirsty to find out more about the characters and elements newly introduced to this unexpected tenth instalment.

When Skulduggery learns of a plot to revive an alarming evil, he turns to Valkyrie Cain for help. Though afflicted by post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the battle with her alter-ego, Valkyrie agrees to join him for twenty-four hours and together they seek the help of “someone who disappears in a crowd”. That someone turns out to be teenager Omen Darkly. There are amusing moments when Omen thinks they can’t possibly need him. “You’ve got the wrong brother… You want Auger Darkly - he’s the Chosen One,” he remarks, but Omen’s exactly the kind of inconspicuous kid they need to go undercover. Familiar characters resurface throughout the twisting time-pressured mission and new faces are introduced, including a US President who might just put readers in mind of certain Mr Trump. As ever, the action is edgily fast-paced, and fans will adore the top bantz between Val and Skulduggery. ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

Resurrection by Derek Landy

The best-selling return of skeleton detective Skulduggery Pleasant, out now in paperback. A lot has changed. Roarhaven is now a magical city, where sorcerers can live openly. Valkyrie Cain has been out of action for years, recovering from the war against her alter-ego Darquesse, which nearly destroyed her and everyone else. Some things never change though: bad people still want to do bad things, and Skulduggery Pleasant is still there to stop them. When Skulduggery learns of a plot to resurrect a terrifying evil, he persuades Valkyrie to join him for just 24 hours. But they need someone else on their team, someone inconspicuous, someone who can go undercover. Enter Omen Darkly. Student at the new Corrival Academy. Overlooked. Unremarkable in every way. 24 hours to save the world. One sharply-dressed skeleton. One grief-stricken young woman. One teenage boy who can't remember which class he's supposed to be in. This cannot end well...

About the Author

Derek Landy

Derek Landy is far too modest to talk about any awards or accolades his books may have won. He will not, for instance, mention the fact that his first book, Skulduggery Pleasant, won the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book of the Decade Award AND the Red House Children's Book Award, or that his second, Playing With Fire, won an Irish Book Award for Children's Book of the Year, or that his third, The Faceless Ones, is his mother's personal favourite. He could go on, all the way to The End of the World, which is the title of the story he wrote for World Book Day 2012, but he won’t.

He lives in Ireland with a variety of cats, a German Shepherd, and two geriatric Staffordshire Bull Terriers who keep peeing on his kitchen floor because they think it's funny.
