Book Review: Mortal Coil

Summary: The blonde girl with the black lips turned to Valkyrie. 'We know,' she said. 'We've seen the future. We know you're going to kill the world!' 
  Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back -- just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down! While they struggle to protect a known killer from an unstoppable assassin, Valkyrie is on a secret mission of her own. This quest, to prevent her dark and murderous destiny, threatens to take her to the brink of death and beyond. And then the body-snatching Remnants get loose, thousands of twisted souls who possess the living like puppets, and they begin their search for a being powerful enough to lead them. Facing such insurmountable odds, Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Ghastly and Tanith can trust no one. Not even each other!

Thoughts: Not sure if I've already mentioned this but I really love this series! Granted it gets darker with each installment but really that just leads to even greater character development. I mean, Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain's relationship is one of my favorites in any book I've ever read. 
 And the plot...well, like all previous books it includes the end of the world on many different levels. But somehow, Derek Landy never allows the plot to become mundane or predictable. 
 The writing is still fabulous. Such wonderful witty sarcasm floating around you're laughing no matter what's going on!

Content: Dark and a few mature themes. Violence. Gore. Magic. SPOILER There's a hinting of romance between a character and a vampire END SPOILER. Lots of kissing. I wouldn't suggest handing this one to the kids any time soon but it's another great installment for teen or older fans of the series!
