Mortal Coil

Written by Derek Landy

Part of the Skulduggery Pleasant Series

Mortal Coil Synopsis

Following the shocking revelations of DARK DAYS, get ready for the fifth instalment of the bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series - guaranteed to contain at least 40% humour, 50% action, and 100% thrills... The blonde girl with the black lips turned to Valkyrie. 'We know,' she said. 'We've seen the future. We know you're going to kill the world...' Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back - just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down... While they struggle to protect a known killer from an unstoppable assassin, Valkyrie is on a secret mission of her own. This quest, to prevent her dark and murderous destiny, threatens to take her to the brink of death and beyond. And then the body-snatching Remnants get loose, thousands of twisted souls who possess the living like puppets, and they begin their search for a being powerful enough to lead them. Facing such insurmountable odds, Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Ghastly and Tanith can trust no one. Not even each other...

Mortal Coil Press Reviews

Praise for Derek Landy: `Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.' Inis `Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.' Irish Post Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil: `An exciting novel that really ups the game from the already impressive previous novels and sets a new standard of excellence for the series.' The Founding Fields `Skulduggery himself is still as funny and awesome as ever ... I found myself laughing a lot.' Fringe Magazine Praise for Skulduggery: 'Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY 'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian '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, author of the PERCY JACKSON series `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.' Irish Mail on Sunday `A rip-roaring adventure.' Irish Sunday Independent

About Derek Landy

Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave, he says, or she would be if she were dead.
