Good Reads - Playing With Fire

Title: Playing With Fire
Author: Derek Landy

The sequel to Skulduggery Pleasant, Playing With Fire finds the skeleton detective back in action with Valkyrie Cain as they take on a villain from Skulduggery’s past. Baron Vengeous is determined to restore the Grotesquery back to life and return the Faceless Ones back to power to destroy the world. Complete with their magical powers and smart comments, Skulduggery and Valkyrie take on the Baron and fight to save the world…again.

Playing With Fire matches the first Skulduggary book in tone and in quick-witted humor. The action and laughs just keep coming and it makes the Playing With Fire as enjoyable as Skulduggary Pleasant. Landy clearly has a strong grasp of his characters and conveys them very effectively from beginning to end. If you enjoyed the first book, Playing with Fire should be a must-read.
