It's the fourth bone-breaking, wise-cracking, spine tingling comic Skulduggery Pleasant adventure; only Skulduggery Pleasant himself is lost on the other side of a portal, with only some evil gods for company. Can he possible survive? (Yes, all right, he's already dead. But still.) Skulduggery Pleasant is gone, sucked into a parallel dimension overrun by the Faceless Ones. If his bones haven't already been turned to dust, chances are he's insane, driven out of his mind by the horror of the ancient gods. There is no official, Sanctuary-approved rescue mission.
Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his childrens story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a little thriller in which everybody dies. As a blackbelt in Kenpo Karate, he has taught countless children how to defend themselves, in the hopes of one day building his own private munchkin army. He firmly believes that they await his call to strike against his enemies (he doesnt actually have any enemies but hes assuming theyll show up sooner or later). The reason Derek writes his own biographical blurb is so that he can finally refer to himself in the third person without looking pompous or insane.
