Meet Skulduggery Pleasant

Ace Detective
Snappy Dresser
Razor–tongued Wit
Crackerjack Sorcerer
and
Walking, Talking, Fire-throwing Skeleton

The end of the world?

Over his dead body.

About the Author

Derek Landy lives near Dublin, Ireland. Before writing his children's story about a sharply dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a slasher thriller in which everybody dies. As a black belt in Kenpo Karate, he has taught countless children how to defend themselves, in the hopes of building his own private munchkin army. He firmly believes that they await his call to strike against his enemies (he doesn't actually have any enemies, but he's assuming they'll show up sooner or later). The reason Derek writes his own biographical blurb is so that he can finally refer to himself in the third person without looking pompous or insane.

This book opens up a hole new perspective on the modern magical world. It's funny, intelligent, and thrilling. The plot is unexpected and you don't know who is good and who is bad until the end of the book. This book starts out the Skulduggery Pleasant sires, and the books just keep getting better and better.
