So you won t keep anything from me again He put his hand to his chest Cross my heart and hope to die Okay then Though you don t actually have a heart, she said I know And technically, you ve already died I know that too Just so we re clear When Stephanie Edgley s Uncle Gordon a writer of horror novels passes away, she meets his one time friend Skulduggery Pleasant who just happens to be a skeleton wizard detective, that believes he is invincible and has the world s biggest ego not that he believes that part He drags her into a world of magic and chaos, introducing her to a whole range of characters Tanith Low, a stunningly pretty and deadly master swordswoman, Ghastly Bespoke, an amazing tailor who is also a boxer, China Sorrows, who is not only lovely but collects things with magical properties usually by corrupt and illegal means andTogether, Skulduggery and Stephanie explore the mysterious circumstances around her Uncle s death, meeting danger at every turn And as this world tightens its clutches around her, Stephanie starts to believe that though her Uncle s novels were horror, they were definitely not fiction.Lightened up by the funny and sarcastic lines from Skulduggery like, For a guy with no internal organs, you ve got quite the ego And for a girl who can t stand up without falling over, you re quite the critic My leg will be fine And my ego will flourish What a pair we are , this is a book that really makes you consider that if these are the good guys, then how bad are the bad guys This has to be one of those books that needs the words, BEST BOOK EVER written on the front cover Doors are for people with no imaginationI will always remember when I first read this It was back in 2009 I was over at a friend s house when her older sister, Emma, recommended it to me I just know you ll love it, she told me when she handed her copy over.You have to understand that, at this point, I wasn t a big reader Yeah I didn t mind reading, but I also didn t love it I didn t sit down for hours on end with a book in my hand I didn t value the power of words as much as I do now The closest I had gotten to realizing the magic of books was with Harry Potter, which was over at this stage and, unfortunately for me, it was spoiled by my asshole of a sister I didn t read about Fred s death or about Snape s redemption or how the Dark Lord was slain instead I was told it And I was pretty heartbroken by it Sure I will always criticize for the first books to be a bit too cheerful for my taste, but I was and still am in love from Goblet of Fire and onwards when the books grew darker However despite my reluctance I took the book just to be nice I don t know what made me crack open the book maybe my curiosity got the better of me, maybe the cool cover was what did it, maybe I asked myself Well what s the worse that can happen , or maybe my instincts told me to do it Whatever the motivation I m so glad I read that first sentence I can t express to you in words how thankful I am that Emma gave me this very book Because this book this series is the one Although you might find it unbelievable, this is the book that made me become the bookworm that I am It s because of this book that I want to be a writer This series, however surprising it may seem to you, was the series I could go to whenever I felt scared or sad.I know people would think me silly that this series could mean something to anyone hell I m not even sure Derek Landy understands himself But it does to me It means a lot Because I can slip into this world and find comfort in the colourful and complex characters it contains I can marvel at the magic, feel breathless at the action, laugh at all the delicious sarcasm, and feel sorrowful when things seem at their darkest This series is my home Although a few days ago I read the last page of the very last book with teary eyes, I will read this series again and again and again and I will always love what Derek Landy has created And when people ask me when I ll finally be sick of this series, I will reply withUntil the end Thank you Derek for writing such an unforgettable series that has shaped me into becoming who I am today I will forever be grateful to you. I loved discovering this book I thought it had a very fun mixture of magic, action, creepiness, and humor plus, I really love the title character
