Product description

Skulduggery is back, reunited with his original head. But all is not well in the magical world. Our plucky heroine Valkyrie has discovered she might be the sorceress set to destroy the world. But she doesn’t feel she can tell Skulduggery! With Valkyrie on a secret quest to prevent her own evil destiny, Skulduggery and the gang are a warrior short. Which is a shame… Remember those remnants imprisoned in the Midnight Hotel? Well, they’re out – and they believe Valkyrie is their messiah. Thousands of wicked souls are desperate to get to her, killing anyone in their way! Oh, and because they can possess anybody’s body, they could be ANYONE. Now our heroes can trust no one. Not even each other!

    I can’t believe Valkyrie is Darquesse and that weird doctor thing called Nye is so freaky.

    I loved this book and the rest of the series! My favourite character is China, because she is very intelligent and powerful. I also like Valkryie, as she is often stuck in sticky situations, but finds her way out quite quickly.

    Derek Landy is and amazing author, and these books just get better and better! Can’t wait till The Death Bringer (book 6) comes out in September!

    This book is just AMAZING!

    As soon as Valks found out she was Darquesse I immediatly wanted to get my hands on another book and here it is!

    The Remnants are let loose, and wont get out of them again. They have invaded the whole of Ireland.

    Pleasant has lost a friend and earned himself a job.

    There’s and assasin on the loose which have defeated the gang. ANd probably half of the town!!

    THIS BOOK IS A-M-A-Z-I-N-G I rate it 1000000000000000000/10
