  3. 10
    The Screaming Staircase af Jonathan Stroud (nessreader)
    nessreader: strong likable girl heroes, the trappings of gothick (walking skeleton in skulduggery, ghost exorcism business in lockwood) without feeling creeping horror; the drama moves too briskly for that and the heroes take action rather than brooding

So, Skulduggery Pleasant. I love him? He’s sassy? He’s Irish? He’s a skeleton? Please please give my boy a chance. I know this is supposed to, technically, YA or middle grade but it’s worth your time 100%. ( )

This has been a book that I've come back to again and again since my early teens. The story is just so immerse for me, and just the right level of crazy. I'll almost certainly end up reading it again ( )

A snappy dialogue, weird characters, and violent silliness. I really should finish this series. ( )

LOVED this. There's something so delightfully noir about this story, but it manages to be wonderfully playful too. Also there is a TALKING SKELETON WHO THROWS FIRE. Please tell me what else you need in a book.

That's right. NOTHING. ( )

Amy Sisson (VOYA, August 2007 (Vol. 30, No 3))
Considering how many fantasy novels are imported into the U.S. these days, one hardly expects freshness and originality, so this Irish author's debut novel is a very pleasant surprise. Twelve-year-old Stephanie Edgley is perplexed when her eccentric Uncle Gordon dies, leaving her his vast estate. She is utterly astonished to find that his closest friend is a walking, talking skeleton who also happens to be a well-dressed, hard-boiled detective named Skulduggery Pleasant. Intrigued by Skulduggery's dangerous world of magic, Stephanie ignores his protests and begins tagging along on his adventures. Before long, she encounters a troll-killing warrior named Tanith Low, vampires completely unlike those about which she has read, an evil henchman made mostly out of paper, and many other wonders and perils. Quite simply, this book is designed to appeal on every level. The book's cover, the illustrated drop caps that lead off each chapter, and the narrative's tone give it a graphic novel sensibility, even though it is really almost four hundred pages of straight text. Stephanie displays wisdom and courage beyond her years, and as such, will appeal to older teen readers as well as younger ones. Stephanie and Skulduggery's witty repartee is most enjoyable, and the pacing is fast, with constant action and fight scenes during which the author neither sugarcoats the violence nor revels in it unnecessarily. This book likely will be a big hit, and thus belongs in every library that serves young adult readers. VOYA CODES: 4Q 5P M J S (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Every YA (who reads) was dying to read it yesterday; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2007, HarperCollins, 400p., $17.99 and PLB $18.89. Ages 11 to 18.

This book is dedicated to my parents, John and Barbara.
Dad - this is for your bizarrely unwavering support and unflinching faith.
Barbs - this is for that look on your face when I told you the good news.
I owe you absolutely everything, and y'know, I suppose it's entirely possible that I feel some, like, degree of affection toward the two of you...

Gordon Edgley's sudden death came as shock to everyone -- not least himself. One moment he was in his study, seven words into the twenty-fifth chapter of his new book, And the Darkness Rained upon Them, and the next he was dead. "A tragic loss," his mind echoed numbly as he slipped away.
