Valkyrie screamed, sprinting toward Skulduggery. He looked up and reached out to her, but it was too late. If you've read the other Skulduggery books by Derek Landy (and you really should have read them by now), you've seen it all before: Some bad guy wants to bring about the end of the world, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie fight valiantly to stop it from happening. A few people get hurt, sure, but everything's all right in the end. Well, not this time.More
Spirited jazz, screams, and chilling sound effects open this action-packed and humorous sequel to Playing With Fire. Narrator Rupert Degas is sublime; every one of his characters is splendid. Of course, the best is Skulduggery, whose scarf and hat hide his skeleton self while his voice matches his uncommon appearance. Skulduggery's 14-year-old sidekick, Valkyrie Cain, is also fully believable as she goes from being a sorcerer-in-training to a schoolgirl and daughter of delightful parents. Degas artfully takes her from home and school to help Skulduggery save the world as we know it..
