An amazing series of books written by Derek Landy. It follows the adventures of a skeleton sorcerer/detective (Skulduggery Pleasant) and his partner-in-crime Valkyrie Cain. They go around
saving the world and such likes with
other characters such as Tanith Low, Ghastly Bespoke, Fletcher Renn, Erskine Ravel and much
more. In my opinion, the books are absolutely
fantastic - witty, clever, surprising you at every turn, full of shocks and surprises. If you haven't read them
yet, give them
a go - you won't regret it.

in the groin stood hunched
over by an ambulance, and the cop Margaret had struck stood
pulled up, and she waited until the cops had stopped admiring it before stepping
out and running over. She jumped in.
Skulduggery looked at her, then
looked at all the cops. ''Your doing?'' he asked. She nodded, and he sighed as they pulled away.
