I have been a fan of Derek Landy Skulduggery Pleasant books ever since my brother put the very first one in my hands a few years ago. I will let you in on a little secret of mine; I see Skulduggery Pleasant as David Tennant and harbour the hope one day when they make it into a movie that Tennant will play him. Let me know if you agree or disagree with me on that point ?
Now back to the book, I didn’t realize there was another Skulduggery Pleasant book until my brother informed me a couple of weeks ago. Then there was the torment if waiting for him to finish reading the book and then getting my own hands on it. Safe to say I am now currently heavily in Skulduggery Pleasant world and loving every minute of it. Derek Landy’s prose is second to none except maybe J.K Rowling for sweeping you away into another place that your imagination fills in the blanks. They are the kind of books I wished I had when I was a young adult reader. Alas at least I can enjoy them now and enjoy them I do indeed.
I think Derek Landy’s sense of humour also makes his books speak to me on another level. I always end up reading them in record time.
