Skulduggery and Valkyrie are back, in an exclusive World Book Day novelette, set after the momentous events of Death Bringer! Hey, punks! Skulduggery and Valkyrie are about to make your day! 15-year-old Ryan is running away from home, looking for escape and adventure. But unfortunately, sometimes people DO get what they wish for. Ryan hasn't gone far before he is set upon by a bunch of scary, nihilistic punk-sorcerers who need him to set off a doomsday device that will destroy the planet and everyone on it. Fun! Riding to the rescue, however, is a certain skeleton detective and his teenage partner/combat accessory. Now Skulduggery and Valkyrie only have a few hours to figure out what's going on, while saving Ryan and -- incidentally -- the whole world. And all that time, the punk-sorcerors are closing in!

Ryan really threw me for a loop; I never saw that coming and I gotta say, that one scene near the end, was pretty darn s...
The world is ending! And all because a bunch of crazy lunatics have decided the world would be better off blown into a million little pieces. The problem? These lunatics need a key to activate the bomb that'll blow the world up. Actually, that isn't the problem. The real problem is that key is actua...
*May contain mild spoilers*It was awesome returning to this world, which of course makes the wait for the next release in late august *flails arms* more bearable.It was so much fun, especially Valkyrie's sensitivity towards vampires now (We don't talk about vampires!) oh it was so, oh so very amusin...
This short novelette is a fun way to get to know the characters later in the series. Even though it was probably just an attempt by the publisher trying to get the book on extent, but it gives good insight into Derek Landy's thought process and it's a fun, short read.
