Book Review: Dark Days

  Summary: Skulduggery Pleasant is lost on the other side of a portal, with only some evil gods for company. Can he possibly survive? (Yes, all right, he's already dead. But still.)  
 Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: detective, sorcerer, warrior.
 Oh yes. And dead.
 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. There is no official plan to save him.
 But Valkyrie's never had much time for plans.
 The problem is, even if she can get Skulduggery back, there might not be much left for him to return to. There’s a gang of villains bent on destroying the Sanctuary, there are some very powerful people who want Valkyrie dead, and as if all that wasn’t enough it looks very likely that a sorcerer named Darquesse is going to kill the world and everyone on it.
 Skulduggery is gone. All our hopes rest with Valkyrie. The world’s weight is on her shoulders, and its fate is in her hands.
 These are dark days!
 Thoughts: Part two in the miniseries "Books I Read Last Year and Forgot to Tell You Guys About!"
 I love this series so much! While the beginning of the story seemed to move a little fast, the pacing evens out by the middle. The plot thickens and slowly things start coming together, secrets are revealed but only when more are unearthed.
 The characters develop, relationships change, so do people. We're left unsure of anything...which is a way I rather like the middle of my book series to be. 
 And the writing, always funny. Always great. Always fun! I was laughing at loud by chapter two...again. 

Content: This book lived up to it's name, Dark Days, it was dark and even creepy. There was quite a bit of violence and some gore. A little language (D***, C***). Lots of magic. Kissing. Some mature themes. Definitely not for younger readers but a riveting and exciting read for teens and older!
