Chloe from Year 7, De Warenne Academy:

As a a fan of horror novels i didn't quite enjoy this. In my opinion it wasn't as good as i would think. The beginning really drew me in and i did enjoy it. However as the book progressed it wasn't scary and i lost interest. The story line is how sorcerers despise mortals. They believe they're useless and annoying. We hear the characters: Razzia, Lethe, Valkyrie and Skulduggery the most. I believe they're the main characters. They are all sorcerers but have different views of comparison between mortals and themselves. I wouldn't class this as a horror novel because it hasn't got a horror story line. I would class it as a fantasy novel for it is linked with sorcerers. Written by Chloe Neagle Age: 11 I would recommend this to 8+.

Pamela from Year 7, De Warenne Academy:

As I am a big fan of horror books I do love reading this book as it is awesome but on the other side it wasn't that scary. I love it when Valkyrie was telling about her story also i loved it when they snapped the woman's neck I also gave this book a 8 because i got bored when they started talking about everyone's life story. I would recommend this book to 9+. Written by: Pamela Corrick Age:11

Samuel from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

I love this book because there's a SKELETON detective who has a partner called Valkyre who has to go on a mission with Skulduggery Pleasant. My favourite part was when Skulduggery was corrupted and started to help Lethe and the others. I rate this book 10/10 because of its interesting story plot and its awesome characters. I think this book is good for 10 to 12 year olds.

Isabella from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book is amazing it is a really long book but amazing, it's about skeleton called Skulduggery Pleasant. He likes to kill people; but it kind of scares me but I enjoy reading this book it has a lot of other scary people such as Omen and Valkyrie. I would give this book to a 9 to whatever age because you might not like scary things such as this book. I gave this book a 9/10 because it is really good sometimes.

Elodie from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book is all about a skeleton detective. I didn't really enjoy it. Mainly because at the begging it was saying this character then the next so I didn't really get to meet the characters until later. It's all about sorceress despite mortals. Read this book to find out more. My favourite character is Razzia. Would you enjoy it?

rosie from Year 6, Hatchell Wood Primary School:

The book Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection a book of magic and adventure. The book in my opinion is quite hard to follow and to get into especially if like me this is the first book in the series you have read. A lot has changed since the last book Valkyrie is taking a long break from the magical world and sorceress can walk about the magical city Roarhaven freely. This book is wonderful exiting book full of adventure. The book starts off when, after find out about an evil plot ,Skulduggery goes to Valkyrie again for help. Valkyrie agrees to help him for 24hours. So Valkyrie and Skulduggery go to a school for magical children and meet Omen darkly the brother of a legend. The ask him to keep a look out for any mysterious behaviour around his school. Omen is in love with his job because he is quite and overlooked boy that nobody really goes to for help. So Omen takes his job very seriously. One teenage boy, one young woman, Skulduggery pleasant and 24hours to save the world this is quite the adventure book.
