Synopsis

Skulduggery Pleasant 3: The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy

Third bone-breaking, belly-busting adventure in the series that puts the "funny" back in... um... funny series. That didn't really work, did it?

Love Skulduggery Pleasant ? Watch this !

Reviews

Praise for Derek Landy: 'Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.

'Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.'

'A fast evolving plot and a great mix of scariness and humour'

'Fast and funny.'

'A magical mystery that grabs you from the first word and doesn't let go, not even when you're finished, and leaves you gasping for more like a fish out of water. Terrifyingly good!'

'Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure.'

'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.'

'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel.'

'Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages ... It's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired.'

'A rip-roaring adventure.'

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.
