More About the Author

Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."

Product Description

Review

PRAISE FOR THE SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT SERIES:
“This is a writer at the height of his powers and Landy is getting better with every book… Whatever your age, read them and enjoy the ride.” – Irish Independent

“Fast and funny” The Times

“A fast evolving plot and a great mix of scariness and humour” 5 star review, Sunday Express

About the Author

Derek Landy is the author of the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series. He doesn’t like to brag about all the awards he’s won, such as the Irish Book of the Decade, or the Red House in the UK, or all the other awards that he humbly displays on his mantelpiece. He is also far too modest to mention things like the first book being a Publisher’s Weekly Best Book of the Year, but would like to extend an invitation to Oprah to pop around one day for tea, in thanks for selecting his book for the Oprah’s Book Club Kids Reading List. Derek plays too many video games, reads too many comics, and watches too many movies. He lives in Ireland with too many cats and too many dogs. Occasionally he talks to real people, but only when he absolutely has to.

Derek Landy has milked this story for everything it has, and it just keeps on giving. A superb story, brilliantly worked personalities and enough twists and turns to keep you reading and refusing to set it down.
Derek, I take my hat off to you. Brilliant

Kingdom of the Wicked (Skulduggery Pleasant, Book 7)
I have not personally read all the series, but my grandson began reading them as a grumpy pre-teen, scarcely putting them down except to eat!!!! I think this is high praise indeed and I believe is a good recommendation of the sheer reading pleasure these books generate. They are different and unusual. Let's face it, how often do you meet a detective who is a skeleton? This last one 'Kingdom of the Wicked' he requested as a gift, after obtaining 10GCSEs in August. He has been a discerning and avid reader since childhood, and hopes to teach English and History, and hopefully become a published author himself one day. I thank Derek Landy for the pleasure his unusual but very entertaining series of books has given my grandson.10/10

For me the series got better with every book, with perhaps the exception of death bringer where i found valkyrie somewhat annoying. But Kingdom of the Wicked is just incredible... Amazing, exploring characters that we have met before and some completely new characters and i loved them all. I loved the dynamic between the characters and the end cliffhanger for me was slightly expected, but still had me gobsmacked because SPOILER!!!! the reflection isn't who you think it is, and even then it's not who you would think it is. Now i have to wait another year until the 8th book... but if its any good ad KOTW or better, then i can handle it

Format: Hardcover
It's several months after SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT: DEATH BRINGER and Valkyrie and Skulduggery are busier than ever. The last thing they need is for an outbreak of magic to start infecting the `normal' population, giving them incredible powers that even they can't handle. The culprit appears to be a rogue Adept called Argeddion who disappeared after harnessing the power of his true name. Finding him won't be an easy task, especially when a trio of new teenage magicians led by the psychopathic Kitana are intent on wrecking havoc, Tanith and Billy-Ray Sanguine are back making trouble and the international Sanctuaries have decided that Ireland can no longer be trusted to run its own affairs and want to take over. Solving the mystery will involve parallel dimensions and it might just be that only Darquesse and Lord Vile can save the day ...

The seventh in Derek Landy's SKULDUGGERY PLEASANT SERIES is a return to inventive form in another dark and gory middle grade book with a non-stop, pacey plot filled with originality that successfully builds on the overriding arc and ends with a jaw-dropping ending that really sets up book 8 in the series.

Valkyrie finally gets a sense of what she's losing by working in the magical parallel world. I enjoyed her interaction with her reflection and the way she's losing touch with what her family are up to and it's good to see Ghastly Bespoke gently point this out to her. Her friendship with Skulduggery contains an element of co-dependence, not least because of their terrible alter-egos and their need to control them for the sake of the world.

Argeddion and Kitana are great villains. I liked the way Argeddion's pacifist intentions have been warped by his power and Kitana is a pure psychopath, driven by cruelty and a thirst to destroy.

I began reading the moment i got my hands on this book!! I devoured it in a day. Totally gripping as all Landy's other books and my only criticism is the cliffhangher at the end because I don't think I can take the wait til the next one and have already started the series again. Keep writing Derek!!!!

The book arrived in mint condition and I was amazed to get a hard back book at such a reasonable price, especially since it is the latest in the Skulduggery series. My son was thrilled.
