We’ve seen Skulduggery and his butt-kicking companion, Valkyrie, fighting all sorts of evil so far, but Mortal Coil has even more in store for them. As I was reading I kept wondering ‘how the heck are they going to get out of this situation?’

In the last book, Dark Days, Valkyrie found out a terrible secret that she couldn’t bear to tell Skulduggery. In Mortal Coil she is doing all she can to try to change her terrible destiny, without the help of Skulduggery. If that wasn’t enough to deal with, the Remnants have escaped the Midnight Hotel and foreign powers are threatening to take over the Irish Sanctuary. The Remnants believe that Valkyrie is their saviour and will possess any body to get to her. Will Skulduggery be able to save the day this time?

I loved Mortal Coil! As always, the story is fast-paced, the characters (and their names) are interesting, the humour is witty, and it’s scary and pretty gory in parts. Derek Landy can make me laugh or make my skin crawl (sometimes in the same sentence). If you’ve read the other Skulduggery books you’ll love Mortal Coil, but if you haven’t read them yet, get them from the library. Age 10+ 10 out of 10

Derek landy is great at getting people hooked onto his books, every time you finish one you can't stop until you read the next one... by the way, this is the last book in the series... If you don't count his next book, Death Bringer... i can't wait!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: extreme gore: at one point a possesed girl disects her boss with scaples, at another point, a murderer ruptures all the bones in a man's body, and the bones stick out alot.
