Breathtaking finale to one of the greatest book series ever!
Sadly the end has finally come for the adventures of the skeleton detective, Skulduggery Pleasant and his feisty teenage partner, Valkyrie Cain. But boy, what an ending it is! The Dying of the Light is loaded with all of the magic, monsters, mayhem, action, wit and humour that we have come to expect from the series, but this time it isn't just the fate of the world that is at stake, but the very soul of Valkyrie Cain herself. Reading this book will make you laugh, scream with excitement and yes it will make you cry. And that's just in the last few chapters!
Can Skulduggery save Valkyrie and the world from the destructive force of her alter self, Darquesse? Will everybody make it out alive? Who will make the ultimate sacrifice? These are the questions that can only be answered by reading the stunning conclusion to Derek Landy's masterpiece.
