The sixth instalment in the historic, hysterical and horrific Skulduggery Pleasant series. Think you’ve seen anything yet? You haven’t. Because the Death Bringer is about to rise…The Necromancers no longer need Valkyrie to be their Death Bringer, and that’s a Good Thing.There’s just one catch. There’s a reason the Necromancers don’t need her any more. And that’s because they’ve found their Death Bringer already, the person who will dissolve the doors between life and death.And that’s a very, very Bad Thing…
I have been waiting for this book for ages.. and my sister tried to get it in Hardback but couldn't find it so she got it on kindle, which of course meant I had to wait to read it which was fine by me. The front cover shows Skulduggery and Valkyrie and you can tell that this book is going to be about the death bringer hence the title. The line at the bottom of the cover Kicking Evil Very Hard In The Face Tell's me that their is going to be a lot of fighting which is great.
Derek Landy is suck a great writer and to be able to write the serious side and the funny side together as one must be great talent.. When I read the very first book I was instantly drawn to it and all I wanted to do was read on and on and on.. and then after reading this book all I want is the next one :D. This is written in 3rd person which means it can jump from character to character with this book you need to be able to know the plot line and to have all the details you need to be able to understand the storyline.
My thoughts on Valkyrie are she is a nice and strong girl and she doesn't want all of this on her but she has no choice... but I kind of have my negatives on her she is two timing on fletcher with a vampire and she thinks that's okay which it is not and sometimes she can be acting all hard and tough when really she is scared to the bone, though I must say she can keep secrets very well.. I feel she is taking after Skulduggery Pleasant very well in the secrets department as he keeps secrets and he sometimes acts as if he knows it all which he don't.. but my positives on Skulduggery is he would do whatever it takes to protect young Valkyrie and he is very funny and made me giggle in times in the book even in a serious situation he can make me smile. :)
My overall opinion is if this never had a good plot I may of rated it 4 1/2 instead of 5 but because the plot and storyline saved it I am being such an amazing person :D If you like Funny and adventures books then The Skulduggery Pleasant series is the right series for you :D
