Kingdom of the Wicked by Derek Landy (review by Cynthia H. ’16)

Kingdom of the Wicked (Skulduggery Pleasant, #7)Kingdom of the Wicked by Derek Landy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After defeating the Death Bringer, seventeen-year old magician-detective Valkyrie Cain and her wisecracking, fire-throwing skeleton partner Skulduggery Pleasant are back for the seventh installment of Landry’s series. Here, they track down a magical extremist who calls himself Argeddion while dealing with a group of vicious, arrogant teenagers who have just come into their powers. Valkryie and Skulduggery must also face their old enemies Darquesse and Lord Vile, who pose a threat that cannot be ignored. Reading the other books in the Skulduggery Pleasant series before starting Kingdom of the Wicked is highly recommended, since readers’ understanding of the plot relies heavily on knowledge of past events. Although the multiple plotlines and abundance of main characters can be confusing at times, the witty dialogue and writing style, intriguing characters, action-packed fight scenes, suspenseful plot twists, and a cliffhanger ending make Kingdom of the Wicked well worth a read (or two, or three). – Cynthia H. ‘16
