For young readers, a story of immense bravery and daring, as Granuaile, the Pirate Queen, takes on the great Norman lords, smuggles weapons and mercenaries for the Ulster Gaelic O'Donnell and O'Neill clans and finally confronts Queen Elizabeth herself.
The second coming of Skulduggery Pleasant.
Valkyrie Cain-once known to the world as twelve-year-old Stephanie Edgely-has learned a great deal since beginning her apprenticeship to Skulduggery Pleasant, the well-dressed living-dead wizard-detective.
Meet Skulduggery Pleasant. Sure, he may lose his head now and again (in fact, he won his current skull in a poker match), but he is much more than he appears to be—which is good, considering that he is, basically, a skeleton. Skulduggery may be long dead, but he is also a mage who dodged the grave so that he could save the world from an ancient evil. But to defeat it, he'll need the help of a new partner: a not so innocent twelve-year-old girl named Stephanie. That's right, they're the heroes.
The third outrageous adventure of Valkyrie Cain and her snappy sidekick—Skulduggery Pleasant.
As skeleton detective Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkryie Cain (aka fourteen-year-old Stephanie Edgley) attempt to solve a rash of murders, a trusted friend has a vision that the apocalypse is on its way and the Faceless Ones will return—all by Friday!
