Derek Landy’s epic series starring a skeleton detective and a teenage girl discovering a hidden world of magic and mayhem has sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide and celebrates a second World Book Day £1 book this year. To introduce new readers to this action-packed, whip-smart rollercoaster of a series we return to the first book and follow Stephanie as she meets Skulduggery for the very first time.
Stephanie's uncle Gordon is a writer of horror fiction. But when he dies and leaves her his estate, Stephanie learns that while he may have written horror, it certainly wasn't fiction.
Pursued by evil forces intent on recovering a mysterious key, Stephanie finds help from an unusual source – the wisecracking skeleton of a dead sorcerer.
Will evil win the day? Will Stephanie and Skulduggery stop bickering long enough to stop it? One thing's for sure: evil won't know what's hit it.
