Last Stand of Dead Men(Skulduggery Pleasant #8)

Author: Derek Landy
Language: English

War has finally come.But it’s not a war between good and evil, or light and dark – it’s a war between Sanctuaries. For too long now, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they’re going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making.But while this war is only beginning, another war rages within Valkyrie herself. Her own dark side, the insanely powerful being known as Darquesse, is on the verge of rising to the surface. And if Valkyrie slips, even for a moment, then Darquesse will burn the world and everyone in it.

    August 29th.
    I have to wait that long? I HAVE TO WAIT ALL SUMMER LONG. You do understand that I will be wishing away my summer in anticipation for this book. I WILL BE WASTING MY SUMMER. AGAIN.

    I don’t WANT it on the 29th. I don’t I WANT to waste my summer. I. WANT. THIS. NOW. Not on the 29th, not next week, not tomorrow. NOW.

    OK. Calm down. You can do this. You did it once with Kingdom of the Wicked, and you can do it again. Yeah, I can do this!!!!
    GO ME!!!! Hooooohoooo!!!…

    …and now I wait.

    EDIT (3/3/13):

    That title….

    We’ve finally have been bestowed with a title- Last Stand of Dead Men. I like it, I really like it. I had an asthma attack when I read the title I like it so much. But it dosen’t sound good for our beloved Dead Men.
    Derek, If you do ANYTHING to Ghastly or Skulduggery or Tanith or even Finbar Wrong… your a dead man. *dun dun shissshhh*

    I’m not a ‘cryer’. It just doesn’t happen very often. (Excited-Crying DOES NOT count, since I do do that a lot and I can’t help it.) I can tell that a lot of characters I love will die a horrible death, and I WILL cry. Proper, ugly, snot everywhere, red eyes, blubbering, something that resembles Stitch-in-the-rain on crack and steroids, equipped with me banging my head off the walls/floors/anything hard shouting “WHY CRUEL WORLD???”, type of cry.

    – On crack and steroids, Ladies and G’s.

    Oh Derek why….

    EDIT (24/5/13):

    That cover…

    Is it shameful for me to say, that I saw the cover, sat on the marble floor, hugged my knees and started crying. “It’s just the way Skulduggery looks at her!” I hollered through gasps of air.
    If this is the reaction I have just by looking at the COVER, what am I going to be like reading the book?

    Derek Landy is an Irish writer and kenpo karate black belt. Two screenplays are films: IFTA award winning Dead Bodies and the IFTA nominated Boy Eats Girl. Landy himself was nominated for an IFTA for Best Script.
    Derek Landy is far too modest to talk about any awards or accolades his books may have won, for instance, Skulduggery Pleasant won the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book of the Decade Award AND the Red House Children’s Book Award, or that his second, Playing With Fire, won an Irish Book Award for Children’s Book of the Year, or that his third, The Faceless Ones, is his mother’s personal favourite.
    He lives in Ireland with a variety of cats, a German Shepherd, and two geriatric Staffordshire Bull Terriers who keep peeing on his kitchen floor because they think it’s funny.
    He is the best-selling author of Skulduggery Pleasant, the supernatural mystery series starring Skulduggery Pleasant, a skeleton detective, and Valkyrie Cain, a young female magician.
