Tantalising Trailers: Meet Skulduggery Pleasant

For those of you that know me well you know how much I love sarcasm. Let me tell you how much I love Skulduggery Pleasant - Derek Landy does sarcasm like nobody else <3

There are a number of rumours that Skulduggery is going to be made into a movie. I for one really hope that happens [ : D ]
I have read all the books (at this moment in time I am planning on reading book 5 and 6 before March so I can review them as part of my Celtic Crush)

Try Skulduggery for yourself with free short stories on kindle.

A shot of Skulduggery action for free.It isn’t easy to take over the world. First you need the scheme. Then you need the muscle. Then you need to come up with a system for ruling six billion people and keeping them from revolting. It takes a certain kind of man to take over the world.Scaramouch Van Dreg, however, is not that man.But he has one thing going for him. He has his arch enemy, Skulduggery Pleasant, chained up in his dungeon, and the only person who is coming to save him is the skeleton detective’s 13 year old sidekick.What could possibly go wrong?

Synopsis from Amazon

A jolt of Skulduggery Pleasant action for free.Midnight. Valkyrie Cain approaches an old, ramshackle church to make a delicate deal with a trio of ugly, hairy goblins. To her absolute non-surprise, the goblins have no intention of honouring that deal- but not to worry. Skulduggery Pleasant is standing by to deliver a surprise of their own.Things, however, don’t go exactly according to plan. Not least because the goblins have a sister. A very big, very strong sister. Who might just have a TINY crush on one of our heroes…

Enjoy - your life will never be the same again [ : D ]


  1. Oh wow! I LOVE Skulduggery as well - and they are the one set of books I've managed to get my teenage nephew reading. He adores them. Neither of us had ANY idea that there were some free short stories available, so I am going to download them right now :-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I didn't know there were any free short stories available either. I shall investigate.

  3. Skulduggery Pleasant is amazing and the covers are always great! Derek is also awesome in person. Have you read the World Book Day short story yet? :)

  4. Great trailer, I really want to read this series! it looks awesome!
