Publisher's Summary

Skulduggery, Valkyrie and Omen return in the 14th and penultimate novel in the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series–and their most epic test yet....

In a matter of days, the world will change.

Billions of lives will be wiped away in a final, desperate search for the Child of the Faceless Ones—she who is destined to bring about the return of humankind's ancient overlords.

To prevent this, Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain have one last–terrible–option: the assassination of Damocles Creed. With protests stirring in the magical city of Roarhaven, with riots and revolutions on the horizon, Valkyrie must decide who she wants to be: the hero who risks everything for a noble ideal, or the killer who sacrifices her own soul for the fate of humanity.

The decision must be made, and time is running out.

WOW WOW just wow

EVERYTIME I THINK THIS MAN HAS TO HAVE RUN OUT OF IDEAS OR WAYS TO SHOCK ME HE DOES IT AGAIN!!! I swear every book is better than the last. 14 books in and i’m still so invested in every piece of this storyline. The callbacks to previous books? Genius without being tacky, and nostalgic without being lame. And a TIME TRAVEL plot line to boot? No words. 11/10 and so chilling at the end!!

As incredible as book one!

Yes yes yes, 1 million times yes! I have loved the series from the beginning. I was a little worried that this far into the series the humor and taughtess of the whole series would start to wain a bit, but I was completely wrong. This is as dynamic, as witty, and as clever as the very first book. Not only that, it leaves with a cliffhanger suggesting more books to come! Love Derek Landy, bring it on!

Wow just wow

Funny, tear-filled, and so much more of the Skeleton Detective we all can’t get enough of. I love this book and the only thing I can complain about is that after binging the entire series up until now I am going to have to wait for the next one.
