The 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?
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.
So now you're on tenterhooks too, desperately awaiting the answers to all your questions, and instead you're going to have to wait till April to get hold of the book. Sorry about that.
Derek Landy (born 1973) lives near Dublin, Ireland. Before writing his children's story about a sharply dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a slasher thriller in which everybody dies. As a black belt in Kenpo Karate, he has taught countless children how to defend themselves, in the hopes of building his own private munchkin army. He firmly believes that they await his call to strike against his enemies (he doesn't actually have any enemies, but he's assuming they'll show up sooner or later). The reason Derek writes his own biographical blurb is so that he can finally refer to himself in the third person without looking pompous or insane.
The novels in this young adult dark fantasy series cross the horror, comedy, mystery, and fantasy genres.
Skulduggery Pleasant consists of fifteen primary works, and includes four additional books that complement the series but are not considered mandatory reads, and the series is set to expand with the upcoming release of three more books. The current recommended reading order for the series is provided below.
