September 2014 Book of the Month The final shocking, heart-wrenching book in the jaw-droppingly stupendous Skulduggery Pleasant series.
This is it; this is the end, the concluding part, the final outcome and as the curtain comes down there is a moment of hush, of quiet, of stunned silence before the applause starts, quite simply because this is the most incredible ending a series could ever wish for. Once you start, you won’t want to stop as the book will open up and swallow you whole. Be prepared for anything and everything; sniggers and cackles, gasps and groans, tears, shock and wonderment. Once you've finished, don’t despair, the series may have ended but you can always start at the beginning and read them all over again. Mr Landy, you wonderful wordsmith you…may you never walk through doors! ~ Liz Robinson

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.

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...

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 ...More About Derek Landy
