‘I told myself that if Skulduggery and Valkyrie survived the series, I would leave the option open of returning to their world. There were still secrets I need to reveal, after all, and there were still horrors they had to face. They survived the first series. But they’re really going to wish they hadn’t.’
– Derek Landy
To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the series, Derek Landy and the Skulduggery Team have announced the release of the 10th book in summer 2017! And us, the Minions are already waiting for it!
The sharply-dresses skeleton detective and his sharp-tongued partner in crime are back in the game! At their side a new character, a child called Omen Darkly will appear and help in the fighting of crime as the new co-star.
New villains, old nemesis, good friends and new characters. With Landy it is a lottery, really: Who will die and who gets to live. If you love a character, they will probably die and Landy’s words don’t really comfort me:
Some of your favourite supporting characters will return. Some of them won’t. Some will survive the onslaught to come. Some will die. Horribly.
Anyway, I am super excited about this 10th book and am really looking forward to dive into the magical world again. Fighting crime with Skul and Val!
