First things first… this book is totally awesome!
Seriously! It’ll blow at your brains until there’s nothing left of it, just a gibbering wreck in a strait jacket.
I hope I’m not putting you off the idea of reading the book.
If you like books about guns and sword fights, you’ll love it.
If you enjoy reading books with magicians blowing each other up on main street, great.
If you don’t like those kind of things at all, EVEN BETTER.
Oh, sure, the book starts off kinda glum, right splat bang in the middle of the funeral but I’ll bet that your ears’ll pick up when you catch the words skeleton.Yes that’s right, the main characters a skeleton.

Featured in "Time After Time"

Yeah, you’ll be thinking what on earth is so good about a book where the main character’s dead and buried?

Well, he may be dead all right, but he’s certainly not buried. He’s a wise-cracking magician with bland dress sense and a cheerful appearance. (I mean, how could you go wrong if you can’t stop grinning?)
Well, things do go wrong for the four main characters, Stephanie Edgley AKA Valkyrie Cain, Skulduggery Pleasant, Ghastly Bespoke, and Tanith Low. Together they are the worlds best crime fighting force ever created.
But is it enough to stop Nefarious Serpine and is, uh, nefarious plan to find the greatest weapon in the history of mankind, even if it isn’t supposed to exist?
Be prepared, be very prepared,
there’s absolutely no way for you to prepare for SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT.
(And he’s the good guy)
