Book review

Hey Internet Friends,
Due to exams coming up, posts may be slightly late (like this one) so I apologise in advance. I will, however, make up for lack of posts when possible. Now, on with todays book review.

Title: Skulduggery Pleasant
Author: Derek Landy
Blurb: (From Wikipedia) Twelve-year-old Stephanie Edgley is tired of her boring life. But when a man breaks into her recently deceased uncle's house and tries to kill her, she is saved by a funny, arrogant, fireball-throwing, 400-year-old detective named Skulduggery Pleasant, who just so happens to be a walking skeleton, and she is thrust into a world of danger, murder and magic. Taking the new name of Valkyrie Cain, she partners up with Skulduggery to solve her uncle's murder, and to prevent the devious Nefarian Serpine from obtaining the Sceptre of Ancients, a mystical weapon that can slay gods. The sceptre is a powerful weapon which can be used to defeat and overcome the world and bring back the Faceless Ones.
Rating: 8/10
Comment: Loved them when I was younger and still do now. Brilliant characters that have different personalities. Exciting to read but aren't too complex. Yes, the book as well as the rest of the series is meant for children but as a girl in her late teens these are still brilliant, even my Dad enjoyed them.

Love and Hugs,
