According to prophecy, The Death Bringer is a Necromancer who has the power to completely bring down the wall between life and death, and some people within the Necromancer community think that this person is Valkyrie. But for her to become the Death Bringer, three billion people must die.
As she and Skulduggery struggle to protect a known killer from an unstoppable assassin, Valkyrie is on a secret mission of her own to stop this dark and murderous destiny. But then a plague of body-snatching Remnants are released into the world in search of a being powerful enough to lead them. Facing such insurmountable odds, Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Ghastly, and Tanith have no one they can trust. Not even each other…
Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back—just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down.
