I started reading these series in March 2014, now is August 2014 and I finished book 8. *Starts sobbing* Derek, why? Why would you do this to me? *locks the emotions away in a jar* Okay, so...this is my all time favorite series!! And I'm not kidding. The structure of the story alone is amazing but t...

Less fun and darker than the previous books, but the storyline felt more exciting to me and the book harder to put down than I remember from the earlier books. Also, since Valkyrie's starting to grow up, I'm labeling this one as young adult, not a children's book - and I expect the series will be ge...

This was a much better Skulduggery Pleasant novel, yet it had its own set of inconsistencies and issues such as plenty of info-dumping/name-dropping. There were perhaps too many characters for this story and, on occasion, Derek Landy lost control of a couple of them. The big problem for me is how De...

I felt kinda lost in this story, I didn't connect enough with the characters and it just left me feeling a bit meh. Skulduggery and Valkyrie investigate the deaths of teleporters and find that they're getting fewer and fewer. It would appear that someone plans to bring the faceless ones back and t...

3.5 stars.My personal favorite skeleton detective is back - and not quite as snarky as ever. Close enough. For me this series/book is not at all about the plot, because, let's be honest, it's not the greatest plot and even frustrates me sometimes. The Faceless Ones are starting to grate on my nerve...

I can see, in an objective sort of a way, that this is a decent enough series. But even now, three books in, I haven't managed to really connect with any of the characters. I don't feel much of an investment in their successes or failures and, really, don't feel like I know them very well at all.The...

Derek Landy has officially pulled off a rare feat: he has written three amazing books in a row. Usually, whether it's books, movies, video games or whatever, the third piece either crashes or falls just a bit short of expectations.This one didn't.This book is every bit as amazing as the first two in...
