So I found Armageddon Outta Here in a bookshop and immediately pulled it out and flipped to the back to get that promised chapter from The Dying of the Light It s the second chapter And it was nice In fact I was surprised by how normal it was Same old same old Skulduggery Pleasant Except for that one major difference that just kept nagging on me the whole time and made me feel sick somewhere in my stomach God, I don t want to follow this character I can t stand this character Derek Lan So I found Armageddon Outta Here in a bookshop and immediately pulled it out and flipped to the back to get that promised chapter from The Dying of the Light It s the second chapter And it was nice In fact I was surprised by how normal it was Same old same old Skulduggery Pleasant Except for that one major difference that just kept nagging on me the whole time and made me feel sick somewhere in my stomach God, I don t want to follow this character I can t stand this character Derek Landy, don t make me feel sympathetic towards this character, not after Dead MenIn this way I guess me and Skul are gonna have a lot in common during this last book Man I can t wait to see what happens I literally have no expectations and have no idea what could happen.I really can t wait Oh God Derek You complete and utter Incoherent grumbling And Skulduggery You heartless, loveable jerk How could you do that to me To Valkyrie God I nearly died several times in this book.Wow, so I finally finished it This is the end I ve been dreading this moment since I first bought the book and even a little before that , and now that it s over and the only other series I m currently reading will also release its final installment this year, I am desperately scrambling around for another fantasy series for me and my sister to read she s still got her Land of Stories books I said I d check them up after I finished everything else I want to read, but I don t think I ll see it as anything too special looks a lot like Magic Tree House slash Inkheart I haven t been with this series for nearly as long as most people in fact I ve technically only been a fan for around a year and a half 2 years and my review is waaaaaayyy late since I had to wait eleven months after the initial release of The Dying of the Light before getting a copy 1 because I m very picky and I only like paperback editions but the cover is gorgeous and so worth it 2 because books get released over here like 3 months after they get released in the US but my love for Skulduggery Pleasant and all its glory can t be any less than a lot of other fans who ve made it this far In fact this finale alone has bumped up the series on my top ten favorite series list to number 3, surpassing The Cirque du Freak and How to Train Your Dragon at least until the last book for Httyd gets released later this year.Gosh what a ride this series has been The characters, the action, the suspense, the magic It s the only series I have on here where I ve rated every book five stars, and that s not to say I see them as completely flawless particularly not this book or that I didn t have a few problems here and there with them mostly with this book , or that there weren t a few I didn t like as much as the rest I suppose the weakest for me would be Playing With Fire , but those five star ratings were all based on my honest raw feelings of exhiliration and enjoyment after finishing each one and there were some I started on the same day I d finished the last, and each took around a two to three day span apart from this one, since me and my sis were reading it together and she likes to do other things with her time had I been reading it alone I probably would have finished it in two days max, it was so unputdownable It s the one series where I d finish each book and my immediate thought is not about what it did wrong, but what it did right Where I d take a deep breath, smiling widely, and think ah, that was amazing The Dying of the Light though it s very hard to express exactly what I feel about this book, especially considering that it is THE LAST Before I get into thatIt s funny that only after finishing this last installment did I recognize the pattern in which these books diligently follow you ll have a bad guy wanting to destroy the world summon demons from another dimension and have them destroy the world kill a whole load of people, and to do these things they need some sort of mystical magical artifact and or the knowledge of a specific person, and Skul and Val will be sent to intercept said magical artifact person before they do finding out where its kept by tracking down and talking to a few people and gathering up the things for their plan of action , and they ll usually fail in the process often the plan will be interrupted by a magical monster and or unprecedented back up from the bad guy s side and maybe someone gets captured forcing them to come up with an alternate plan that involves either locating another magical object to counter the one previously stolen, or coming up with a final back up plan to use upon rendezvousing with the enemy at the site of their evil plot This plan will also usually fail at first, but then afterfighting, after a lot of kicking and biting and scratching and desperate reaching of fingers, the heroes just manage to succeed by the skin of their teeth, with a trump card they d been holding back, or else a really lucky break While all of this is going on there ll be a subplot panning out in the background and I don t mean Scapegrace and Thrasher , maybe another villain or imminent doom approaching that are less pressing for time.In other words, it s just non stop action and dialogue almost all the way through And I love that For awhile now I ve come to really notice and nitpick while reading books when authors explain or tell even a littlethan they necessarily should I ve gotten quite attached to the show don t tell method of story telling Maybe it s due to the large amount of manga I ve been reading the past two years I do think Skulduggery Pleasant would make a truly awesome manga anime.Apart from Last Stand of Dead Men, which took place during a civil war between Sanctuaries and so had to be a littlecomplicated, all the SP books work on this cycle of events, and the last book is no different The only real difference is that this time, the stakes are much higher But while the rest of the books all seemed well self contained and wrapped up, I felt like a lot was left hanging loose in DOTL, and those loose ends are probablyapparent to me here because it is THE LAST.When writing a finale for a long fantasy series there are a number of things that need ticking 1 Every important character that has made an appearance in the series so far and is not dead, but you don t even have to let that stop you needs to come back for one last bow Of course it s important to make sure their inclusion serves some sort of purpose, however small check2 When the book is finished, the reader needs to feel like there is nothing else at all they want to know about what happens after, to any of the characters Yes, I know this doesn t always have to be the case and may just be greedy and unimaginative on my part, since there are some series that do work best with endings that are left open for interpretation e.g The Dark Tower series still iffy on that ending though , but if you are going to leave a few things open ended, at least do it in a way that the readers can feel satisfied with how the overall ending looks And besides, if you ve been scrupulous in tying off the loose ends in your plot in all the previous books, it ll only feel like a cop out to not do so here checkish3 The climax has to overshadow every other climax in the series in terms of size, epicness, danger and importance check4 The reader has to feel all sorts of feels Multiple times And this doesn t always necessitate killing off a bunch of characters either check5 When the villain is defeated ultimate goal of the story is finally reached, it has to be done in a way that makes sense, is not predictable, and feels satisfying This is the goal you ve been aiming for throughout the whole series after all checkish6 There has to be at least one or two throw backs to previous books, preferably the very first, just for that extra sense of nostalgia checkAs far as finales go, DOTL gets an A, if you re going to go by that list But there are two major things I felt were slightly wrong with this book, so much that it made me hesitate in giving it five stars and is forcing me to rename my bad endings shelf to thespecific dissatisfying endings shelf I don t think I ve read anything I could really say constitutes the bad ending label, unless you count the entirety of the final Narnia book although that wasdue to an oversight on what the series was actually about on my part.The first problem I had with this book was that, looking at it in hindsight, there were a lot of plot lines that, rather than left hanging loose, sort of just led to nowhereOf course I can t go into too much detail without giving stuff away, but I ll just mention the few specific ones I can recall For one, the renegade sorcerers who got magically boosted in the last book and went running loose That problem didn t really serve too much to the story asthan well, as a problem that the characters temporarily had to face Another would be the reflection, and while we re on the reflection, let me just say that my greatest fear while reading this book was that Derek would have the audacity to attempt to make me sympathize with it I hate the reflection note that when I say I hate the character I do not mean I hate its inclusion or part in the story, just that I hate her as a person Well he I m not gonna say he succeeded in making me like it, or even acknowledge it as a person in fact if anything this book just increased my annoyance with it but given that it s been there since book one and the last two books have sort of been building up its character and its alright, her emotions and dreams, I kind of expected a bigger pay off at the end where she was concerned I mean I m happy I didn t have to put up with her for the whole book like I d thought I d have to, but even as a character I hated, I found her ending a little unfair and by that point my feelings towards her had actually turned to neutral On another note, are we never going to fully address what she did at the end of Kingdom of the Wicked Specifically is no one ever going to let Valkyrie s uncle and his family know what she did My sister countered my points here by saying that in real life, not everything is going to tie in or lead to the final climax and not everything is going to go according to your original plan, and I guess that she s right But there are just some things that happen here that take up way too much time from the book, and trick you by presenting things that you think might have a larger impact on the outcome but then just get sort of tossed aside one of these things literally does get tossed aside, and the cost that went into getting this thing was so much and so traumatizing for the protagonist that it really made me frustrated with this book for the first time view spoiler I m talking about Valkyrie having to kill her sister to get the scepter, and then having it taken from her by Darquesse and tossed aside without being any use at all hide spoiler I m not going to let this bother me too much though, except for that last in parenthesis, because all the rest of the books did much of the same, and the only reason it was okay for them was because there were always other books following them to cover their tracks, and also because all these little side trips and plans gone off course didn t make the book any less entertaining.The most glaring example of this problem however, and I d have to say most detrimental to this book, would have to be what I took to calling the Danny chapters As in after I d finish a chapter and see Danny s name on the next page I d tell my sister Next is a Danny chapter , and she d always groan and complain and ask to skip it I ll be honest, I wasn t enjoying these very much myself, but I bore with them because I was sure they d play a bigger role further down the line But when we did finally reach the last two chapters, I was disappointed to find that my wait had been almost completely futile We literally learn only two really important things by the end of these chapters Granted one of them was such a huge and happy shocker that both me and my sister screamed and laughed when I read it although I suppose there might be smarter people that saw it coming , but there was absolutely nothing else in those last two chapters that redeemed all those previous ones that kept interrupting the story I would much rather have preferred an epilogue I would even have preferred a Scapegrace chapter for every time a Danny chapter appeared but thank God there weren t nearly as many Scapegrace chapters here as there were in Last Stand of Dead Men.The other, slightly less troubling problem I have with DOTL has to do with point two on my list, and this might not be a big problem to everybody else but I just can t stand not knowing what happens to all my favorite characters There are at least four characters alone I could name whose fates remain a mystery by the end of the book And that s not even to mention the ambiguity of the future of the protagonists I mean yes, I guess I could easily imagine what life will be like from this point on, but I still have questions about a lot of things and I just wish Derek had givenof hint on those things instead of wasting so much time on the Danny chapters I m just gonna hope that someday he takes it in his head to write another collection of Skulduggery short stories that take place after DOTL Apart from wantingglimpses of the future, I really am going to miss seeing Skul and Val.Aside from those two points, however, the book did practically everything else right in my opinion My sis and I hadn t put it past Derek to give us the darkest ending he could concoct, or to kill off all our favorite characters we weren t even a hundred percent sure our protagonists were going to make it , so there werethan a few times where we got legitimately scared My sister even started crying during one scene near the end.The relationship between Skul and Val, the whole soul of the series, is not, I think, explored anyor less deeply than it has been in previous books I mean we all know by now how much they mean to each other but there aredisplays of emotion and love from both of them,heartbreaking, tearful scenes between them, and I loved every one Skulduggery in particular, the biggest enigma in the series, hadof the brittle person he really is beneath that giant ego revealed in this book you get a closer sense of what losing Valkyrie really does to him, as well as how much he blames himself for all that happened during the war.I am so glad I d resisted enough to not spoil a single thing like I usually do when we first got Deathly Hallows I took to flipping through the book and taking peeks in between the pages not a good idea at all and I m glad I was able to experience the whole thing with my sis Normally I would have already finished the book first and then reread it aloud to her, or at least read a little ahead This way, we were both able to feel the same anger, fear, happiness, anxiety, and sadness at all the appropriate parts And the fact that the book was able to make us feel all these things makes it worth five stars, regardless of how well it works as a finale 27 9 So I just finished the book And I m feeling kind of emotional In a good or bad way I m not sure, actually.Attempt at a review up tomorrow really just an essay made out of feelings 25 9 YES I have it Let the angst and tears begin.This series only brings me pain. Dying of the Light More like Dying of the Fangirls One thought played over and over in my mind as I finished the final page of The Dying of the Light it can t be over It just can t be This series has been such a big part of my reading experience of my life The first Skulduggery Pleasant book came out in 2007 7 years of my life since then have been filled with a deep, abiding love for this series with its spot on dry humor, brilliant characters and amazingly detailed plot And nowit s o Dying of the Light More like Dying of the Fangirls One thought played over and over in my mind as I finished

7 years of my life since then have been filled with a deep, abiding love for this series with its spot on dry humor, brilliant characters and amazingly detailed plot And nowit s over I can t believe that we ve reached the final Skulduggery book A true testament to this series brilliance is how readers can see, looking back, how much the characters have developed since the beginning especially Valkyrie The changes are subtle, but there and they make the characters feel all thereal The Dying of the Light has everything the Skulduggery Pleasant books are known for andfrom bloody battles, pointless arguments, and cool weapons, to unexpected twists, heartbreaking ultimatums, and unsatisfying endings That ending was so unsatisfying I needed a full chapters worth of writing to end that book A chapter filled with information like What happened to all our fave characters What happened to all our not so fave characters What happens next Does Skulduggery ever part ways with his hat Those kind of important questions needed to be answered Instead, we get an ending that is about as satisfying as the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Or Allegiant.Unsatisfying ending aside, this book was one hell of a ride.There was so much to process in this book And the twist is truly flawless So flawless, that Derek Landy manages to fool the reader into believing the lie too, for a few heart wrenching moments.In those moments all you can think is would Derek Landy really be that sadistic And the thing is, no one knows with Derek Landy He s such an unpredictable author, that if he decided to kill off all the characters and repopulate his world with bunnies, you wouldn t even be surprised.Especially if those bunnies turned out to be man eating So if you re dying for a

it looked intriguing The skeleton with the glasses, and the girl with wavy hair that s how I thought back then made the cover look like some little fun horror story that I would read and quickly forget Years passed, with me looking up at that purple skeleton book with the really weird name, Skulduggery Pleasant Then, nine years later after I had first saw it when I was 7, just went well, let s just see what this is all about.I Was blown OUT This was the book series I was looking for, this was the best thing I had read since Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl, and the Bartimaeus Trilogy times two After that, I went straight to the library, put on hold every book after book one and hungrily devoured everything related to SP I fell in love with the Skeleton Detective, with Valkyrie, with China but really, who doesn t love China Even in the books, she s irresistible with Ghastly, with Tanith and with Mr Bliss I liked him especially He was so much in line with what I aspired to be, it really hurt to see him dead I guess I could count myself lucky that I had waited so long to pick up this book because I don t think I could have survived the wait I don t know how you guys survived, but I for one am glad you did I found friends in you guys cue tear wiping Isn t this adorable Anyway, this book, the Dying of the Light, was the death knell of mediocrity, because every single piece of it was exceptional in every way The characters, grown over a period of way too long years, have become so three dimensional that it can be easily imagined, which makes for wonderful reading experiences the likes of which can only be replicated by the Oculus Rift I wonder why they haven t made movies for that already I can t go any further without going into the Spoiler Zone, but suffice it to say that this book will kill your feels Youthan likely won t be able to feel anything for a few weeks and.well let me warn you to keep a few boxes of tissue nearby Why One word Leather Just don t throw the book out the door Why Doors are for people with no imagination Previous review under spoiler tag view spoiler Wow That s all I really have to sayjust wow The writing was amazing, the chapters were unconventional, and Valkyrie.oh Valkyrie, how did you manage to live through that the entire book felt real Derek had put his whole heart and soul into this book, and you could feel it in every chapter, every sentence, every flipping word You could feel that this was the end, and you will definitely miss SP by the end, if you re not already crying by the first chapter The ending.it takes you all the way back to the first book, and Derek did a fantastic job looping it all back to the beginning without it being too Pendragon esque Not too much emotion this time, since I am all out of feels right now If there s one thing Derek was right about, it was the fact that it crushed my soul I can t even feel anything anyWhat am I going to do now, after this The Blood of Olympus is coming up, and so is Jonathan Stroud s The Whispering Skull, but I don t think I will again be as excited as for what was, in my opinion, the crowning event of the year The Dying of the Light Then again, time heals all wounds, right right hide spoiler Pre review ETA August 27, 2014 The Day of Truth, the Last day that I will most likely retain my sanity, because when this book comes out, I willwell you probably

will be at least 100,000 words, which is Mortal Coil length, and could be longer LSODM will stay the longest, I reckon, simply because of the massive amount of characters involved But because most of those characters are now DEAD, Book 9 allows me a smaller,intimate story while remaining as heart rendingly traumatic as anything I ve written before.And speaking of heart rendingly traumatic, I ve actually written the last few chapters Not to completion, of course, but I ve written enough to know what happens, and how it ends, and who lives and who dies, and all I can say isI am MEANStill haven

person A world with real consequences A non romantic main relationship That,than anything, is why I m unable to think clearly right now There isn t a thing Skullduggery and Valkyrie wouldn t do for each other, not a freaking thing Till the end That s the power of friendship That s the power of love That s the power of a bond that runs deeper than any romance ever could That s the kind of relationship I read for, and this is that brought to its most pure.It s over, and there aren t enough words.I will reread and reread this series I will never get tired, and I will always wantBut I
