Publisher's Summary

A brilliant, hilarious one-off novel in the Skulduggery Pleasant universe, from number-one best-selling author Derek Landy.
This time, the bad guys take the stage. Tanith Low, now possessed by a remnant, recruits a gang of villains – many of whom will be familiar from previous Skulduggery adventures – in order to track down and steal the four God-Killer level weapons that could hurt Darquesse when she eventually emerges. Also on the trail of the weapons is a secret group of Sanctuary sorcerers, and doing his best to keep up and keep Tanith alive is one Mister Ghastly Bespoke.
When the villains around her are lying and scheming and plotting, Tanith needs to stay two steps ahead of her teammates and her enemies. After all, she's got her own double-crosses to plan – and she’s a villain herself…

Great intermediate book

A bit of an interruption in the series of "Skulduggery Pleasant" and it was good. A lot of people have complained that with male-dominated cast, the female narrator didn't really fit, even thought it was done because of the story being told from the point of view of Tanith Low. I must say, it did not irritate me at all. I thought it all fitted rather well and that the female narrator did a great job. The book is full of dry humour, action and plot twists, characteristic to Derek Landy. So hold on to your hats and if you haven't tried yet to listen to the Skulduggery Pleasant series, then you are missing out!
