Skulduggery Pleasant (the whole series overview) by Derek Landy.
In my opinion this is literally a work of art in with nine original novels, plus a book of short stories as well as another book about people in the series but does not include Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain.
I started reading these books when I was around eight or nine and I have read them all more times than once. I have loved them all and would recommend them to anyone I meet , but anyway enough with nostalgia lets get this show on the road. The series starts with a twelve year old girl who after her novelist uncle has died due to “natural causes” is attacked in her house by a fire wielding man when a mysterious figure saves her, who only but, the infamous (and dead) Skulduggery Pleasant. Almost without realising it Stephanie (Valkyrie) is whisked into a world of magic and sorcery that she never knew existed but also leading her down a road that she will never be able to walk away from…
TeenRating: A phenomenal series and I would also just like to note that this a blog for Teenagers, it does not mean that you can not read these books when you are younger. I my self started this series when I was seven. Words can not describe what I think of this book. Derek Landy however is a genius with a wit and humour that Is completely unique. I loved this series and I am looking forward to his new one which is coming out in a couple of months. 10+ minimum with the ideal audience being between 12-17+ . 5/5
