To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My son was so taken with the Skulduggery Pleasant books after buying one from a charity shop that he asked if he could have the others. We've bought them all so far and this one was the latest offering so bought it for him. He also made me read them all and, I've got to say, this is great series of books!
This book continues in the Skulduggery Pleasant universe and is full of humour and action. I don't want to tell you what happens because I don't want to spoil it for you but if you're into Skulduggery Pleasant, you will NOT be disappointed! This is possibly the great book of the first 5 so far. It's wonderfully written and is a real page turner.
Summary: The best book of the first 5 in my opinion and essential for Skulduggery Pleasant fans!
I remember seeing this book on the bookshelf of my school library and thinking "wow there is so many of these books". I asked the librarian which book was the first and beginning to become so attached to the book. It has all the qualities I love. It has romance, action, comedy, fantasy, and sci-fi. I have read all of these five books in the time of only six weeks, starting off slow and ending up reading this particular book in 3 days. It is the best series I have ever read in my life. I hope you find this useful and hopefully you didn't find my review boring. Thank you.
I love these books. I think that it is like Percy Jackson and the Heroes Of Olympus series, even though they are two different genres. Percy Jackson is about gods and history, but I think that this is more advanced. It is harder to understand than Percy Jackson, but there are the same sorts of plots. This definitely is more murderous, but at the same time it is a lot the same. I think that if you like Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus series, you will probably enjoy Skulduggery Pleasant. My favourite in the series so far. It is the fifth in the series.
