March 2013 Book of the Month Book 7 in this hugely successful comedy-horror adventures series will appeal to lovers of Buffy the Vampire-Slayer, Ghostbusters and Dr Who! This breath-taking read combines magic, sorcery and the paranormal with some awesome teenagers possessing remarkable and dangerous powers. The ensuing crisis calls for Skulduggery Pleasant – a sharp-dressing detective, sorcerer and warrior – who also happens to be dead. It's fast-moving with a brilliant mix of humour and all-action adventure. A series not to miss and one which has been responsible for getting even the most reluctant reader reading - boys in particular.

Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked by Derek Landy
Magic is a disease. Across the land, normal people are suddenly developing wild and unstable powers. Infected by a rare strain of magic, they are unwittingly endangering their own lives and the lives of the people around them. Terrified and confused, their only hope lies with the Sanctuary. Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are needed now more than ever. And then there's the small matter of Kitana. A normal teenage girl who, along with her normal teenage friends, becomes infected. Becomes powerful. Becomes corrupted. Wielding the magic of gods, they're set to tear the city apart unless someone stands up against them. Looks like it's going to be another one of those days...
