Skulduggery Pleasant, The Faceless Ones
Hola. Okay, here is the problem with this book. It is the third in the series and I barley remember the first two. Skulduggery Pleasant, The Faceless Ones, by Derek Landy. Valkyrie Cain, previously known as Stephanie Edgely, and her magic mentor, Skulduggery Pleasant, are out, once again, fighting crime. But the stakes are higher than ever. Someone is killing the teleporters, and Skulduggery has a keen idea what its about. With an insane cult of worshippers following the evil gods known as the Faceless Ones trying to foil them, Valkyrie and Skulduggery need all the help they can get. I completely understand if you don't understand this blog. I will reread the first book and see if I can write something slightly less confusing. But anyway, this was a really exciting read. The characters are good and the dialogue is witty. My only thing is that the Faceless Ones seemed just a little too east to fight. And one more thought, wasn't this supposed to be a trilogy? The series totally isn't over! Whatever, three and a half stars.
