If you love Buffy: the Vampire Slayer, there’s a lot to love with Skulduggery Pleasant. The banter between Skulduggery and Stephanie recalls that of Giles and Buffy, and the action comes fast and furious. There’s magical battles, monsters, truly scary vampires (I appreciate the kicks Derek Landry gets in on the Twilight phenomenon), and fights galore, all written in a style that doesn’t drag and which goes over-the-top at just the right minute, keeping the story tipped every so slightly on the lighter side of things.
