    Loki, the god of mischief, is Thor's troublesome adopted brother. Their father Odin (ruler of the Viking gods), orders the quarrelsome siblings to tame the violent Giants once and for all together. But what Loki and Thor find in their series of adventures puts them in conflict with each other as well as with the giants. And in the land of Utgard, a mysterious place made from magic and illusion, Thor must trust his magic-wielding and misbehaving brother in order to get out alive. Likewise, Loki must count on his brother's unmatched strength if he, too, hopes to survive their encounters with the Giants.

Pursued by evil forces intent on recovering a mysterious key, Stephanie finds help from an unusual source - the wisecracking skeleton of a dead wizard. Will evil win the day? Will Stephanie and Skulduggery stop bickering long enough to stop it? One thing's for sure: evil won't know what's hit it.

    Winner of the Red House Children's Book Award, Landy mixes up magic, fantasy and adventure and tops them off with sparky dialogue and lots of jokes. A perfect choice for readers aged 11+ who are waiting to get sucked into a book they can't put down!
