Skulduggery Pleasant - the faceless ones
Review by Vladimir Manza (Year 11)
Okay, the story combines magic, humour and a talking skull. What more do you need? It follows Valkyrie Cain, a 14 year old girl, who is trying to stop a bunch of evil gods from destroying the world. Skulduggery Pleasant is a detective with a sense of humour, he is very happy to play tricks on people so that he gets the bad guys in the end. This book is so funny! Skulduggery uses his magical powers in 'unusual' ways to make sure that his partner Valkyrie lives to see another day and the bad guys don't destroy the world. This one is the third book in the series.
There are three of these books in our library and we are waiting for the next one. They are cool, you should read them!
Here is a video from the publishers!
