The transition from solving mysteries with a skeleton detective in Ireland, to surviving a badass roadtrip across America might be a little difficult for you Skulduggery-die-hards, but let us at MP! tell you why it’s totally worth it.
Landy’s razor-sharp sense of humour
From Skulduggery Pleasant, you’ll remember the unique wit Landy twists throughout his scenes of horror and suspense, provoking many an unexpected snort.
When it comes to ‘Demon Road’, Landy has not lost his touch, and we’re truly impressed by his delightfully dark sense of humour, so it’s obvious that more Landy is a must.
More mysteries. More twists. More addiction.
Skulduggery Pleasant is all about the twists and turns, “who’s that?”s and “whos he?”s – and ‘Demon Road’ takes you on a similar winding path.
From the onset it seems like a relatively simple story – Amber’s desire to escape her parents, and her parents desire to, well, kill her – but a few chapters in, you will realise nothing is ever simple with Landy. Sucked in, totally immersed – ‘Demon Road’ will keep you guessing.
Another kick-ass female lead
Tired of boys having all the fun? Us too. Sick of female leads always being so, so beautiful and not even knowing it, despite the fact everyone is constantly telling them they are? Ditto.
Meet Amber. Normal girl, a little overweight, has a bunch of online friends and not many in real life, and makes mistakes. Not Little Miss Perfect or even Hardcore Heroine, Amber is a wonderfully realistic heroine, similar to our girl Stephanie in Skulduggery Pleasant.
Kudos to Landy for understanding girls.
