Skulduggery Pleasant, is about a detective and his 12 year old sidekick
Stephanie I mean Valkyrie Cain (names have a certain power you know). They are on a mission to stop the bad guys from stealing the sceptre and bringing back the Faceless ones. But is all as it seems? Can you trust the right people?
Skulduggery is a great character. He is quick witted and sarcastic even when in peril. Did I mention he has magic and is a skeleton? Yep he's pretty cool. I also like the secondary character Tanith low. First of all she has a great name and she is a strong and important character as the story progresses. Tanith low is a fighter in the literal sense of the word, she is great at what she does and she knows it. 'Come and have a go, if you think you're hard enough.' she actually says that before she starts fighting a cleaver and I just loved it.
Overall I personally was not a huge fan of the story as a whole. There were parts I really liked but at other parts I just wasn't really feeling it and I just think it lacked a certain something to make it truly great.
My rating 3*
