Skulduggery Pleasant #8: Last Stand of Dead Men

In paperback at last and firecracker hot. Will Valkyrie burn the world and everything in it? Fighting evil hasn’t been such a picnic for Skulduggery and Valkyrie since it turned out that Valkyrie is actually the super-evil Darquesse. Now a war is raging within her. Her own insanely powerful dark side is rising to the surface. If Valkyrie slips, even for a moment, Darquesse will set the universe on fire. And as the Irish Sanctuary explodes into conflict with the other sanctuaries, that’s not even the only war in town. Only Skulduggery, Valkyrie and the rest of the Dead Men can stop the whole world frying like hot bacon…

    This is such an intersting book I’m currently on the 9th book in the series. But it is not the last book because a book 10 came out this year ! I am so excited ; it’s called resurrection. I can’t wait to read it. Meanwhile I recomend 11+ to read this .
