Skulduggery Pleasant – The Dying Of The Light – Review and Giveaway

By | November 18, 2014

It is always a pleasure to receive a book to review in the Bluecrisps household and we also have a copy of the book to give away too, please enter via the Rafflecopter at the end of the post.


T was especially received to see this book arrive because he’s just started getting into the Skulduggery Pleasant series and will quite happily choose a book in town and even before we’ve got home, he’s reading it, eager to find out what happens.

Here’s some information from the publishers about the book, the ninth in the series:

“The FINAL shocking, heart-wrenching book in the jaw-droppingly stupendous Skulduggery Pleasant series.

Valkerie. Darquesse. Stephanie. The world ain’t big enough for the three of them. The end will come…

The War of the Sanctuaries has been won, but it was not without its casualties. Following the loss of Valkyrie Cain, Skulduggery Pleasant must use any and all means to track down and stop Darquesse before she turns the world into a charred, lifeless cinder.

And so he draws together a team of soldiers, monster hunters, killers, criminals… and Valkyrie’s own murderous reflection.

The war may be over, but the final battle is about to begin. And not everyone gets out of here alive…”

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Just the sort of thing I would have loved to read as a tween or teenager (or maybe even now, much older!)

Here’s what T thinks of the series, he’s decided not to give away the ending:

“I enjoy reading the books because of the descriptions used and the suspense…..the suspense is always good! Skulduggery is a detective, magician, warrior and all round good guy. Dead too. Very dead.

His primary job is to protect people from The Renmants, who are evil spirits.”

You can watch the Youtube trailer here, and click here to buy on Amazon.

But, like I mentioned, we have a copy to give away below. The Rafflecopter ends in two weeks (2nd Dec) so that’s plenty to time to receive before Christmas. There’s one simple question to answer too.

Good luck Jx
