Dark Days (Skulduggery Pleasant, #4)
The weather has been lovely here in Florida, and I really should be going outside. Actually, I should be doing yard work (weeding, mowing, that kind of stuff), but I really don’t enjoy any of that. I do enjoy reading, though, so here’s another short book review.
The skeletal detective is trapped in the dimension of the Faceless Ones, and Valkyrie (his teenage assistant) thinks she’s figured out how to get him out. She’s not getting any official help with this, of course. In fact, it seems as if that Thurid Guild (the Grand Mage) and the entire Irish Sanctuary (like the regional Magic HQ) don’t want him back. Meanwhile, Valkyrie’s being recruited by a necromancer who seems all right, but who really knows with sorcerers into all that dead stuff? Also, there’s a temporary alliance of outlaw psychopath sorcerers who are seeking vengeance on Skullduggery, Valkyrie, the Grand Mage, and the Sanctuary in general.
This is another unpretentious fun fantasy adventure with likeable characters. I found it a highly enjoyable light read. So, on to book #5.
