Skulduggery Pleasant 3 Faceless Ones

Third bone-breaking, belly-busting adventure in the series that puts the funny back in! um! funny series. That didn't really work, did it?

Third bone-breaking, belly-busting adventure in the series that puts the funny back in! um! funny series. That didn't really work, did it? If you've read the previous Skulduggery books then you know what the Faceless Ones are -- and if you know what the Faceless Ones are, then you can probably take a wild guess that things in this book are going to get AWFULLY sticky for our skeletal hero and his young sidekick. If you haven't read the previous Skulduggery books then what are you doing reading this? Go and read them right now, so that you know what all that stuff in the previous paragraph was about. Done? Good. So now you're on tenterhooks too, desperately awaiting the answers to all your questions, and instead you're going to have to wait to read the book. Sorry about that.

Review:

Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant Hugely enjoyable -- a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud 'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian 'A gripping debut.' Phil Hogan, Observer 'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel.' Rick Riordan A remarkably accomplished debut with wonderful dialogue. Robert Dunbar, Irish Times [Landy's] fight scenes are perfectly pitched. His characters are exceptionally well drawn and delightfully colourful! Reading [this book] is like riding a rollercoaster. Irish Independent Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages! With writing of this standard, a rattling plot and definite potential for cross-over appeal, it's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired. Irish Mail on Sunday Humour and magic combine in this thrilling adventure. Waterstone's Books Quarterly !people in the book world are raving about this book. Glasgow Herald It's pacy, it's funny, it's irreverent. The relationship between Skulduggery and Stephanie is tremendously strong. Stephanie is a splendid character -- blunt, logical and outspoken! We enjoyed Skkulduggery Pleasant. Muchly. Roll on volume two! The Book Bag A rip-roaring adventure. Irish Sunday Independent Full of black humour, super powers, mysteries, murder and mayhem. Carousel
