Just when you think you've saved the world! "You will kill her?" the Torment asked. Skulduggery sagged. "Yes." He hesitated, then took his gun from his jacket. "I'm sorry, Valkyrie," he said softly. "Don't talk to me," Valkyrie said. "Just do what you have to do." Valkyrie parted her tunic, and Skulduggery pointed the gun at the vest beneath. "Please forgive me," Skulduggery said, then aimed the gun at the girl and pulled the trigger. With Serpine dead, the world is safe once more. At least, that's what Valkyrie and Skulduggery think, until the notorious Baron Vengeous makes a bloody escape from prison, and dead bodies and vampires start showing up all over Ireland. With Baron Vengeous after the deadly armour of Lord Vile, and pretty much everyone out to kill Valkyrie, the daring detective duo face their biggest challenge yet. But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is just a little closer to home!?

Reader review: Skulduggery Pleasant: Playing with Fire - Paperback - 9780007257058

Valkyrie Cain, aka Stephanie Edgley, and Skulduggery Pleasant are back and this time the stakes are even higher, the monsters scarier and the jokes funnier. The evil Baron Vengeous has been sprung from prison and pretty soon he's trying to bring back a villainous race of ancient gods, The Faceless Ones, with the help of a terrifying creature. Throw in Billy-Ray Sanguine, a man of no eyes and no mercy, and Dusk, a vampire, and things are not looking great for the world. Will Valkyrie, Skulduggery and their friend Tanith Low be able to save everyone in time, or will this enemy prove to be too much? Find out in this fantastic sequel to 'Skulduggery Pleasant'. I enjoyed this book as much, maybe even more, than the first one and recommend it to anyone who read the first book and loved it and anyone who read the first book and didn't love it but is willing to give Skulduggery a second chance... in fact, just anyone!
