When I pick up a Skulduggery Pleasant book I know 3 things for sure and certain:
1. I'm going to laugh.
2. There's going to be freaking awesome action sequences.

Sarcasm, peoples, it's so gold and good and wonderful it enters my list twice.

This is the 3rd book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series and while I loved it, I think I like book 2 the best. There are a truckload of characters in here and, I confess, I get a lot of the secondary characters confused. Their names are aw

"That's a plan that could fall apart in so many ways."
"The fun ones are like that."

I just love Skulduggery and Valkyrie. The bickering, the sarcasm, the magic, the bickering, the adventure and the bickering.
It's sadly been a while since I read these books so it's basically been like reading it for the first time because I had forgotten about almost everything that happens (it's a friggin shame, I know). But I'm still in love with the world that Derek Landy created, the writing style is amazi

For years these books have been staring me in the face, whether they be at the local bookstore or library, and I felt no real inclination to pick one up to give it a shot. My thoughts were that these were just for kids and simply not worth the time or effort. Something my eight year old daughter might like, but ultimately not for me. Well, boy was I wrong!

I've now read three of these books and each one has been a fun, action-packed and a thrill a minute ride. While some of the names are a little

Best in the series without a shadow of a doubt.
Much bigger plot line, fun new characters and with Stephanie growing up it’s so much more sarcastic and I LOVE IT
Here the world of Skulduggery pleasant is introduced more and it becomes more global - as well as the main enemies being fleshed out more and not everything leading up to a happy ending.
These are so enjoyable, I can't help myself. ...more

Loved all the twists, never saw them coming! I think this one is the best so far :D Thumbs up!

This series is just so much fun! I love how this third installment throws you right into the action. The author still does a wonderful job balancing the action with humor. I absolutely enjoyed loved getting to know more about the our characters and the magic system. It's great seeing Valkyrie learn more and more about her powers. As much as I love Valkyrie and her reflection, my favorite character hands down is definitely Skulduggery himself - I mean, he's a magic using skeleton with fantastic s ...more

actual rating: 4.5/5 stars

That's a shame. I'm sure somebody, somewhere, cares.

This third novel has this series remain fresh and takes it more into a direction that i wasn't expecting but the ending has really kept me interested to continue this series.

The hilarious dialogue and banter with in this series pages are always top notch and i love having all the characters just bounce off each other. Also the magic, sarcasm and the adventure make this series something special and make me fall in
Proper RTC maybe? These books are just so much fun and reading them is a happy little trip down nostalgia lane. I think I got up to book five or six when I was a teenager and then stopped following the series (why, I'll never know - teenage!me was a dumb dumb) so I'm super excited to re-read the next few and then dive into the ones I haven't read and catch up! ...more
These books just keep getting better and better the older I get when I reread them.

As always with books in the Skullduggery Pleasant series— a full 5 stars from me!

This installment was NUTS ! 😍😱🤯

i hate the cliffhanger at the end of this one.
it drove me crazy the first time.

i always wondered why that guy was trying to kill her.
i skipped this one because my libary didn't have it, i'm kinda sorry about that.
3.5 stars.

My personal favorite skeleton detective is back - and not quite as snarky as ever. Close enough.

For me this series/book is not at all about the plot, because, let's be honest, it's not the greatest plot and even frustrates me sometimes. The Faceless Ones are starting to grate on my nerves but it's definitely not the worst story I've come across and absolutely everything is made better by the characters. I love Skulduggery and Valkyrie and Tanith. They are one of the best bad ass team

Finished listening to the audiobook for the first time, but reading for the second time. This was so great. This book is where the tone of the series becomes darker and bleaker, but still so smart and funny and enjoyable!!

This is the best and most satisfying Skulduggery book I've read thus far! Granted, I've only read three. Derek Landy just keeps upping it with each book! Never a dull moment! Like the second book, the other characters came into their own, and as cool and awesome as Skulduggery P is, he needs people to get his back. He needs Tanith Low, Ghastly (all taken names are usually quite cool, because Derek Landy is fabulous.), Kenspeckle, and above all, he needs Valkyrie. His team has saved his butt so m ...more

I accidentally spoiled myself for the ending of this one, which bums me out, but I'm still going to give it a high rating because I know if I hadn't been expecting it that certain moment would've hit me a lot harder!

5 stars!

hoo boi that ending... hoo boi

on another note: i?? love?? valkyrie?? so much?? i mean, i love everyone, but the way she's maturing and learning everything (from magic to combat training to mundane things and relationships/interactions) as she goes is astonishing and i'm just. floored. amazed. so thankful, so moved. my baby, off to destroy people.

One of my favorite books in the series although I always find the hostage exchange scene to be boring. Love getting to see the Faceless Ones and I love how this expands China’s backstory (one of my favorite characters). I’m gonna take a small break in my reread but I am really enjoying my reread of this series. It is always such a joy each time I read through all the books.

It's fantastic with a big F. This series has been my own discovery. Nobody told me about these books. I got one by luck from Amazon. Then read one and instantly knew I would one day have them all in my collection. And I did collect them all eventually. I read only 3 so far and was impressed by them all. Reading a Skulduggery book means a few things for certain - it's gonna be fun, action packed and full of twist and turns. This book ended with a cliff hanger though! Luckily I just have the next ...more

"You have a plan, right?"
"I do."
"Can you tell me what it is?"
"We save the world, we all go home."
"That's a good plan."
"I have my moments."

If you've read the first two books in this series you know that by the title alone, things are going to get intense. In this, Valkyrie and Skulduggery investigate the murders of several teleporters and find that they're in the midst of a new plot (by new - and old - villains) to bring back the old gods (or "Faceless Ones") to their world, and have to fight to

What could be better than a skeleton detective? You read that correctly, the title character, Skulduggery Pleasant, is a skeleton detective with the ability to conjure flames when he snaps his fingers. He’s not your average private eye, to say the least.

We first meet Skulduggery at the funeral of writer Gordon Edgley. He’s the mysterious figure at the edge of the crowd, wrapped up in a trench coat, scarf, and sunglasses, as though he were avoiding the paparazzi. His odd appearance does not go un

One of my favorite things about the first book was that Valkyrie embraced the magical world wholeheartedly, with none of the usual dillydallying about whether she actually wanted it or not. So, I don't really appreciate the constant condescension from everyone (except Skulduggery and Tanith) about how she should really go back to her normal life and it'll be so much better for her. But I'm glad to have Ghastly back -- it was super weird that he was hardly mentioned in the second book -- and the ...more

I loved 'The Faceless Ones' just as much as the other two previous books of the series. (Still don't know, why it took me so long to read the third book of the series?!?)

The characters are funny and brilliantly done. I cannot get enough of them, especially of the unique friendship of our two main characters Skulduggery and Valkyrie.

The story itself is face-paced. A lot of stuff happens and I never once got bored during the book.

The wise-cracking, snappy-dressing,hilarious skeleton detective and his accomplices never fail to disappoint!
Possibly their best, and definitely their most thrilling adventure yet.

This is not a cliffhanger, but it is a cliffhanger. In a way.

Derek Landy is the Irish author of the Skulduggery Pleasant series that America seems reluctant to discover. It's probably got something to do with figuring out who its audience is and how to target them. My library had books 1-3 and I got to read 1 & 2 before the library lost its license. I had to wait nearly 2 years before my library renewed it for this series, and I doubt I will get to read the rest of the series unless I order them from or something. *sigh*
