    Woah This series I REALLY REALLY LIKE IT, OKAY I may flail.but I will attempt logicalness Because I am kind like that I listened to this on audio and I can t recommend it enough It s narrated by a dude with an Irish accent andcan I say BEST ACCENT IN THE WORLD It was wonderful to listen too and the voices for different characters were perfection It also went really fast I listened to it all in just a few days These books are downright hilarious If I can only ask for two things in booksI want awesome characters and fabulous humour I HAVE BOTH I love the banter between Skulduggery and Valkyrie I also love their relationship Skulduggery is like a supportive uncle, but he doesn t cushion her even though he does protect her I LOVE THEM They are family I also love how Valkyrie doesn t just dismiss her parents and she feels guilty that she s not a good daughter to them even though they don t know because she has her reflection pretending to be her For me this was definitely better than book 1 The stakes were a little higher and the enemies a little undefeated able We meet about 4 new villains Actuallythere are a lot of characters I loved the variety, like Spring Heeled Jack was awful and slimy and freaky moster But the American agh I can t remember his name was really smooth and funny and despicable The main villain was completely cliche, but, ah, I ll forgive him And the Grotesquory sorry I listened to it on audio, so I have noooo idea how to spell anything was awful and unbeatable My biggest MEH moment is how much action scenes there were Don t get me wrong, action is awesome But there was so many fighting scenes it got tiresome Plus I also felt that the author didn t seem to make multiple people be fighting at once It really felt like two people battled while everyone else watched I was kind of miffed at that Also there was the awfully cliche thing of secondary characters can be killed with one backhand while main characters get up every time _ Frustrating Humour Wit Epic magical plot EVIL TO BE FOUGHT A skeleton I love this series so much GIVE ME BOOK THREE IMMEDIATELY runs to the library See this gif That line was in the book Skulduggery lost his arm at one point he s just a skeleton, so no biggie, but HE USED THAT LINE Valkyrie was having none of it I absolutely love her.

    This is a crazy book series, but I like that about it A lead character who is a sorcerer whose body is skeletal A thirteen year old girl who stays out all night fighting evil creatures and sends her reflection to school as a stand in Heinous, and I do mean heinous villains who don t mind exploding people, along with psychopathic assassins with Southern accents who can dig through the ground and who have a favorite straight razor Yup That s what this book is about I think that this one is a lot dark, violent and disturbing than the first book, so I d definitely warn a parent to read it first before letting a kid younger than twelve read this The narrator was great I loved his accents and how he makes these very strange characters stand out I like his intonation for Skulduggery, rather sarcastic and one of those people who really don t panic If he does, then you re in trouble I enjoy his relationship with Valkyrie Stephanie She talks to him kind of disrespectfully, but it doesn t bother him He treats her as an equal There were loose ends tied up from the first book that really needed tying Even a cameo of sorts from Valkyrie s deceased uncle who left her his house and fortune The sorcerer world grows bigger and complicated in this book, and Valkyrie has cause to think about the life she s chosen as the descendant of Ancients who has decided to fight the good fight She realizes how much time she s missing out with her family.This book is just plain weird If you don t like weird, pass it by If you have strong opinions on what young people should read and that list includes violent books with sorcery, monsters and psychopathic characters who have no qualms about harming a 13 year old girl, then you won t care for this But if you like fun, weirdly humorous, quirky, sometimes scary, and sometimes creepy crawly books with not a small degree of wish fulfillment for tweens and messages about empowerment for young girls , then you might like this.

    I don t know what they are, but there are dozens of them, relatively small, moving as a pack They might be kittens, she said hopefully They re stalking us They might be shy I don t think it s kittens, Valkyrie Puppies then I love Skulduggery and Valkyrie I m so glad I decided to reread this in English this time and I can t wait until I can get my hands on Midnight.This book is extremely funny with a great sense of humor Skulduggery and Valkyrie bickering is the best , but dark at the same time, full of action and suspense to keep you glued to the pages This series belongs to favorites and this reread has proven to me once again that Derek Landy deserves his place amongst my favorite authors.

    An endless night made me finish the book Or rather it kept me awake If you say its a young adult, you are perhaps lowing its caliber It doesn t shy on hardcore action, brutality, violent killings It has a rich storyline, continues action, fun and miracle After Harry Potter and Dresden Files, I am enjoying a series so much Three cheers for Derek Landy You Rock

    Honestly, it s great What else can I say It was enjoyable, it was fast, it was hilarious It s basically everything I want in a story with no unnecessary romance I ll still write a full review for book one, but I doubt I will for every book in this series.

  9. says:

    It s like Doctor Who and Harry Potter had a love child

    actual rating 4.5 5 stars We re not retreating, we re advancing in reverse Well for a sequel that i hadn t picked up in nearly a year i still managed to jump back into this world and enjoy it as much as the first book Plot we ll plot wise i think this book was a lot stronger from the first book and it definitely has matured and stepped up I loved how much the dynamic between Skulduggery and Valkyrie has changed in the course of the year story plot i think these two have now a good understanding of each other and each work and it worked really well for this story New threats are coming and still on there way and i love the way that once they have finished in a big fit that it isn t over and Derek lets the reader know that things are still not over and far from it Characters Valkyrie Cain Stephanie Valkyrie has grown so much and i think this world suites this character so much like she has being destained to be in the world all a long Her powers have matured and continue to do so and i m impressed on how much of an impact this world has had on her I also think once Valkyrie s powers have matured i think she she will be one huge force to reckon with and i cannot wait to see that happen I m also trying to get used to the name change from her going from Stephanie to Valkyrie because her named changed so her enemies don t learn her real one but all and all it s still confusing Skulduggery Pleasant Skulduggery is such a master mind in everything he does and it kind of freaks me out with how calculated he is and knows what to do before anyone else I still do really enjoy this character though he is smart, unique and different to many main leads in middle grade series so it s refreshing to meet a character who is the good guy but also very calculated His relationship with Valkyrie continues to surprise me because he will do anything for her but will also put her life in danger and tell her the reasons later it really is strange for him to it but he does have his reasons on why he does it Please forgive me, Pleasant said, then aimed the gun at the girl and pulled the trigger This series has continued to surprise me in ways that i couldn t have imagined and i cannot wait to begin book three and continue this adventure with Stephanie and Skulduggery
