Publisher's Summary

The seventh instalment in the biggest, funniest, most thrilling comedy-horror-adventure series in the universe....

Magic is a disease.

Across the land, normal people are suddenly developing wild and unstable powers. Infected by a rare strain of magic, they are unwittingly endangering their own lives and the lives of the people around them. Terrified and confused, their only hope lies with the Sanctuary. Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are needed now more than ever.

And then there’s the small matter of Kitana. A normal teenage girl who, along with her normal teenage friends, becomes infected. Becomes powerful. Becomes corrupted. Wielding the magic of gods, they’re set to tear the city apart unless someone stands up against them.

Looks like it’s going to be another one of those days....

Retains intensity well

This episode reinstates Landy's strong sense of banter and word play, though that gradually gives way to the drama of the tendency toward evil within the various characters - Scottish Jekyll-Hyde in Irish garb. On the negative side, there are numerous plot resolutions of the "out of nowhere in the nick of time" variety. And I do find the combat scenes rather boring, but perhaps necessary. The ending twist is truly something to reflect upon - and I think I saw it coming in book 6.

Way fun series!

I've really enjoyed this series. They're unusual and creative, and the characters are a lot of fun. My only complaint is that the volume fluctuates A LOT. You go from straining to hear the narrator to him shouting in your ear and back again. Whether that's the fault of the narrator or the producers I can't say, but it would be nice if the volume were more consistent.

An interesting villain

This series has a very colorful cast of characters and the villains are no exception. In this particular story we’re introducing to an antagonist with quite a different view of the world and personal beliefs. This story does a great job comparing different ideologies. The climax is definitely a fun one, I highly recommend this novel.
