New Skulduggery Pleasant Is On It's Way!!!!

The latest installment of the brilliant Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy is on it's way! After 'Skulduggery Pleasant' (the original) sweeping the 'Irish Book of the Decade' award by taking in excess of 5000 online votes and beating out such strong contenders as: Joseph O'Connor, Sebastian Barry, Ann Enright... well there was a list of 50, the 5th book in this extremely popular series for young people, 'Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil' will be out on 2nd September! And, with Derek touring, my best bit of news (very excited!!!!) is that he will be hosted by none other than Dubray Books, Galway on 14th September for a book signing and to meet his loyal followers in the west of Ireland! (Yayyy!!!!) The event will be after school hours, so no need to worry. Watch this space for more information as it becomes available!

  1. Should I start with the first one- or does it matter? Which one do you recommend?

  2. I'd definitely start with the first one. You will need to build the story.
