Author Derek Landy is back with the 14th instalment and penultimate novel in the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series.
Skulduggery, Valkyrie and Omen face their most epic test yet … in a matter of days, the world will change.
Billions of lives will be wiped away in a final, desperate search for the Child of the Faceless Ones — she who is destined to bring about the return of humankind’s ancient overlords.
To prevent this, Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain have one last – terrible – option: the assassination of Damocles Creed. With protests stirring in the magical city of Roarhaven and with riots and revolutions on the horizon, Valkyrie must decide who she wants to be: the hero who risks everything for a noble ideal, or the killer who sacrifices her own soul for the fate of humanity.
The decision must be made, and time is running out.
Here’s what Kid Reviewer Taya has to say about Dead or Alive
Valkyrie Cain and Skulduggery Pleasant must try to stop the world from being taken over. They have 21 days to save the world and they are always in danger.
The story is a mystery and adventure book all in one. I love the way it was written. If you love magic mystery and adventure, enjoy dragons and a story of people creating friendships then you would really enjoy this book.
I would recommend the book to someone that has a creative imagination. It has a few twists and turns which make it interesting to read.
