Skulduggery Pleasant is dead.
Valkyrie Cain is cool.
Omen Darkly is neither.
This cannot end well …
I was actually scared to start ‘Resurrection’ because so much time had passed since ‘The Dying of the Light’, both in the story but also in real life. But I knew I HAD to read it. To be honest, I didn’t even read the blurb, I just ordered it. I had no idea what it would be about, only that five years had passed and there was a new character called Omen Darkly.
Be warned, this will be a lengthy review as I have a LOT to say about this book! I’ll keep it spoiler-free, though so a friend of mine (looking at you, Barbara) won’t rip my head off. 😀
Synopsis: Meet Skulduggery Pleasant, a gentleman detective who is also a brilliant mage and well, a skeleton. At the funeral of Stephanie Edgley’s late uncle, she meets the mysterious man for the first time but it is only after he saves her from a vicious attack, that she realises magic actually exists. For ever the magical community has made sure the ‘mortal’ citizens don’t know of their existence but their secrecy is at stake when a madman and old enemy of Skulduggery’s threatens to blow all their cover. And if it were not enough problems Mr. Pleasant has to deal with, Stephanie is demanding to be his new partner.
