Praise
"Landy offers a sizable cast of characters, all of whom have impressive depth...The result is a rich fantasy that is as engaging in its creative protagonists and villains as it is in the lightning-paced plot and sharp humor."
"Deadly hand-to-hand combat, nasty villains, magical derring-do, and traitorous allies will keep readers turning the pages, but it is the dynamic duo of Stephanie and Skulduggery who provide the real magic. The girl eagerly jumps into this new, dangerous, action-packed life, but she isn't sure that she has the guts or the power to pull it off. Skulduggery Pleasant lives up to his name, performing amazing feats with such self-effacing drollness that readers will wish they had a similar skeletal friend. :
"The book may be hefty but it moves at warp speed. An utterly charming debut, perfect for the Potter crowd."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Meet Skulduggery Pleasant Ace Detective Snappy Dresser Razor–tongued Wit Crackerjack Sorcerer and Walking, Talking, Fire-throwing Skeleton —as well as ally, protector, and mentor of Stephanie Edgley, a very unusual and darkly talented twelve-year-old. These two alone must defeat an all-consuming ancient evil. The end of the world? Over his dead body.
Annotation The death of a horror writer leads to apocalyptic intrigue, action-packed madness, and not a little grossness, all centering around a wily skeleton and daring 12-year-old girl. When Stephanie Edgely's uncle leaves her his creepy house, she's saved from a frightening attack by Skulduggery Pleasant, a detective and living skeleton. Soon, the two are fighting a crazed megalomaniac who seeks a world-controlling scepter that belonged to Stephanie's uncle. Who will win?
