Series or single book?
A series with 6 books so far. Nine are planned.
Fantasy, Action, Humor
What’s it about
It’s about a 12-year-old meeting a talking, fire-throwing, badass skeleton.
Why I like about it
Well, first of all, there’s magic, then there are a lot of great, ass-kicking people who have the best humor ever. Everytime I read it, I discover a new scene (maybe because I tend to forget the plot) and it never fails to make me laugh.
I especially love Tanith Low because she’s one of very few female characters who are strong, clever and BLOND. Seriously, blond women don’t have to be stupid! She always says: “Come and have a go, if you think you’re hard enough”
What I dislike about it
The cover says it’s for kids 9y+ but it’s way to violent for kids! Sometimes, the killing is a bit to … I don’t know… easy? They kill people without feeling any kind of guilt, I mean these pagelong describtions about guilt as they appear in other books bore me but just letting people die without the slightest sight of a bad feeling? Not cool.
And the storyline can be a quite confusing.
How it makes me feel
Happy and cheerfull. It makes me want to jump around.
So that plan worked out well.’
Skulduggery, your entire plan consisted of, and I quote, “Let’s get up close and then see what happens.”’
All the same,’ he said, ‘I think the whole thing worked out rather beautifully.
It’s a book for you when…
you like Percy Jackson’s humor and stories about girls discovering that there’s magic in the world. You shouldn’t have a problem with violence.
