Playing with Fire

Playing with FireHonestly, it s great What else can I say It was enjoyable, it was fast, it was hilarious It s basically everything I want in a story with no unnecessary romance I ll still write a full review for book one, but I doubt I will for every book in this series. Vom Grundprinzip eigentlich die gleiche Geschichte wie im ersten Teil, aber es ist einfach super unterhaltsam eine gute Mischung aus ernsthaft und humorvoll this one shows a bit of landy s very desturbing amagination.i love all the skulduggery pleasant books so much i can read them anytime Woah This series I REALLY REALLY LIKE IT, OKAY I may flail.but I will attempt logicalness Because I am kind like that I listened to this on audio and I can t recommend it enough It s narrated by a dude with an Irish accent andcan I say BEST ACCENT IN THE WORLD It was wonderful to listen too and the voices for different characters were perfection It also went really fast I listened to it all in just a few days These books are downright hilarious If I can only ask for two things in booksI want awesome characters and fabulous humour I HAVE BOTH I love the banter between Skulduggery and Valkyrie I also love their relationship Skulduggery is like a supportive uncle, but he doesn t cushion her even though he does protect her I LOVE THEM They are family I also love how Valkyrie doesn t just dismiss her parents and she feels guilty that she s not a good daughter to them even though they don t know because she has her reflection pretending to be her For me this was definitely better than book 1 The stakes were a little higher and the enemies a little undefeated able We meet about 4 new villains Actuallythere are a lot of characters I loved the variety, like Spring Heeled Jack was awful and slimy and freaky moster But the American agh I can t remember his name was really smooth and funny and despicable The main villain was completely cliche, but, ah, I ll forgive him And the Grotesquory sorry I listened to it on audio, so I have noooo idea how to spell anything was awful and unbeatable My biggest MEH moment is how much action scenes there were Don t get me wrong, action is awesome But there was so many fighting scenes it got tiresome Plus I also felt that the author didn t seem to make multiple people be fighting at once It really felt like two people battled while everyone else watched I was kind of miffed at that Also there was the awfully cliche thing of secondary characters can be killed with one backhand while main characters get up every time Frustrating Humour Wit Epic magical plot EVIL TO BE FOUGHT A skeleton I love this series so much GIVE ME BOOK THREE IMMEDIATELY runs to the library See this gif That line was in the book Skulduggery lost his arm at one point he s just a skeleton, so no biggie, but HE USED THAT LINE Valkyrie was having none of it I absolutely love her. This is a crazy book series, but I like that about it A lead character who is a sorcerer whose body is skeletal A thirteen year old girl who stays out all night fighting evil creatures and sends her reflection to school as a stand in Heinous, and I do mean heinous villains who don t mind exploding people, along with psychopathic assassins with Southern accents who can dig through the ground and who have a favorite straight razor Yup That s what this book is about I think that this one is a lot dark, violent and disturbing than the first book, so I d definitely warn a parent to read it first before letting a kid younger than twelve read this The narrator was great I loved his accents and how he makes these very strange characters stand out I like his intonation for Skulduggery, rather sarcastic and one of those people who really don t panic If he does, then you re in trouble I enjoy his relationship with Valkyrie Stephanie She talks to him kind of disrespectfully, but it doesn t bother him He treats her as an equal There were loose ends tied up from the first book that really needed tying Even a cameo of sorts from Valkyrie s deceased uncle who left her his house and fortune The sorcerer world grows bigger and complicated in this book, and Valkyrie has cause to think about the life she s chosen as the descendant of Ancients who has decided to fight the good fight She realizes how much time she s missing out with her family.This book is just plain weird If you don t like weird, pass it by If you have strong opinions on what young people should read and that list includes violent books with sorcery, monsters and psychopathic characters who have no qualms about harming a 13 year old girl, then you won t care for this But if you like fun, weirdly humorous, quirky, sometimes scary, and sometimes creepy crawly books with not a small degree of wish fulfillment for tweens and messages about empowerment for young girls , then you might like this. ,.. 4.5 Playing with Fire continues right where Skulduggery Pleasant left off An evil force is still trying to release Faceless Ones, and our heroes, Skulduggery and Valkyrie, have to stop it Just like with the first novel, I got just what I expected a thrilling, funny and action packed book, that I would fly through Not quite good as the first one, but still a fun read Can t wait to continue on with the series. An endless night made me finish the book Or rather it kept me awake If you say its a young adult, you are perhaps lowing its caliber It doesn t shy on hardcore action, brutality, violent killings It has a rich storyline, continues action, fun and miracle After Harry Potter and Dresden Files, I am enjoying a series so much Three cheers for Derek Landy You Rock What a thrilling, funny yet dark plot I loved every page, there never seems to be a dull moment in these books on to book 3 Free Delivery If Order Value From The Seller Is Greater Than Used Book In Good Condition No Missing Torn Pages No Stains Note The Above Used Product Classification Has Been Solely Undertaken By The Seller Shall Neither Be Liable Nor Responsible For Any Used Product Classification Undertaken By The Seller A To Z Guarantee Not Applicable On Used Products
