The thirteenth thrilling novel in the internationally bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series, SEASONS OF WAR will test the Skeleton Detective and Valkyrie like never before…
War is coming.
To avert catastrophe, Skulduggery and Valkyrie are sent on a secret mission that takes them away from everything they know, to a forsaken land of magic and grim, unrelenting terror. It is here that Valkyrie will have to fight the hardest — not only against the enemies who want her dead, but also against her own self-destructive impulses. It’s only by crawling through darkness that she’ll be able to once again stand in the light…
Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children\'s story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. \"I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave,\" he says, \"or she would be if she were dead.\"
