Last Stand of Dead Men (Hardback)

Derek Landy


The eighth instalment in the biggest, funniest, most thrilling comedy-horror-adventure series in the universe - and the follow-up to 2012's number-one bestseller, Kingdom of the Wicked... War has finally come. But it's not a war between good and evil, or light and dark - it's a war between Sanctuaries. For too long, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they're going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making. But while this war is only beginning, another war rages within Valkyrie herself. Her own dark side, the insanely powerful being known as Darquesse, is on the verge of rising to the surface. And if Valkyrie slips, even for a moment, then Darquesse will burn the world and everyone in it.

Reader review: Last Stand of Dead Men - Hardback - 9780007489206

Skulduggery Pleasant is based on an un-dead skeleton who helps a sorceress called Stephanie Edgley - chosen name Valkyrie Cain. Skulduggery and Valkyrie race around and save the world from evil villains. But for Valkyrie racing around without telling her parents that she can do magic isn't as easy as you might think. This book is a well-described and gripping action book that I would recommend to thrill seekers. I just couldn't stop reading all the twists and turns. I was so excited I constantly wanted to know what was on the next page. 5/5.
