As Valkyrie's power with Magic grows, so a new threat to the world rises as a plot is revealed that will uynleash the Faceless Ones upon the world once more.
Yes, it's pretty much book one with new characters, but Landy uses this book to further develope the world he began in the pevious novel. Seeds are planted that still haven't fully matured three books later - such as "what the heck is going on with Valkyrie's reflection?" (I have my suspicions myself, but not a lot to back them up).
Gripping, dangerous, and just a little bit disturbing in places (no, seriously, for a book that's marketed for nine year olds there's some pretty weird stuff in here), this book continues in the magnificent vein that its predecessor started.
Caution: May contain spoilers
This book sees the return of Baron Vengeous who is back with a vengeance and a desire to bring his gods back to the plane of reality. This book also brings one of my favourite characters to the equation the Killer Supreme the dreaded (not really) Vaurien Scapegrace. This book retains the wit of Derek Landy and had me smiling at a few occasions. This book is good and you should consider buying this and the rest of the series. I haven't read books 7-9 but I am anticipating a great read for each and every SP book.
I only meant to read a couple of pages, the books were so enthralling that it took some one else to remind me I'd bought them for my daughter.
When my daughter read them, I had to ask her to mark the page and save some for tommorrow- she would have read all night.
Brilliantly written and VERY enthralling.
BUY THEM FOR YOUR CHILDREN!
