The seventh instalment in the biggest, funniest, most thrilling comedy-horror-adventure series in the universe...
Magic is a disease.
Across the land, normal people are suddenly developing wild and unstable powers. Infected by a rare strain of magic, they are unwittingly endangering their own lives and the lives of the people around them. Terrified and confused, their only hope lies with the Sanctuary. Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are need now more than ever.
And then there’s the small matter of Kitana. A normal teenage girl who, along with her normal teenage friends, becomes infected. Becomes powerful. Becomes corrupted. Wielding the magic of gods, they’re set to tear the city apart unless someone stands up against them.
Looks like it’s going to be another one of those days...Review:
Praise for Derek Landy:
‘Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.’ Inis
‘Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.’ Irish Post
Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked:
‘A real thriller ... There are so many teasers that have you on edge, but there are also plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.’ Inis
‘[Landy]'s just got it ...His dry sense of humour, largely conveyed via Skulduggery himself, will have you quietly chuckling as you breeze through the pages.’ Mybookcorner.com
‘I don’t know how Derek Landy does it, but each of his Skulduggery Pleasant novels surpasses the one that came before, and Kingdom of the Wicked is no exception. A stunning novel from page 1 to the last word.’ The Founding Fields
Praise for Skulduggery:
'Hugely enjoyable – a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY
'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian
