SynopsisSkulduggery 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 !
ReviewsPraise for Skulduggery Pleasant Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure.
'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.'
Philip Ardagh, Guardian
'A gripping debut.'
Phil Hogan, Observer
'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.'
Rick Riordan A remarkably accomplished debut with wonderful dialogue. Robert Dunbar, Irish Times
[Landy's] fight scenes are perfectly pitched. His characters are exceptionally well drawn and delightfully colourful... Reading [this book] is like riding a rollercoaster. Irish Independent Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages... With writing of this standard, a rattling plot and definite potential for cross-over appeal, it's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired. Irish Mail on Sunday Humour and magic combine in this thrilling adventure. Waterstone's Books Quarterly ...people in the book world are raving about this book. Glasgow Herald It's pacy, it's funny, it's irreverent. The relationship between Skulduggery and Stephanie is tremendously strong. Stephanie is a splendid character - blunt, logical and outspoken... We enjoyed Skkulduggery Pleasant. Muchly. Roll on volume two! The Book Bag A rip-roaring adventure. Irish Sunday Independent Full of black humour, super powers, mysteries, murder and mayhem. Carousel
About The Author
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.
