If you haven’t read Skulduggery Pleasant, (currently being published in the States as Scepter of the Ancients) go out and get yourself a copy today. This book has a good mystery, a sly wit, and WONDERFUL characters. I’ve been handselling this book for years (it was a whole lot easier before the publisher changed the cover and took off the image of Mr. Pleasant and his whip-smart sidekick Stephanie). Skulduggery Pleasant is the first book in a series.
