And the thought became the beginning. That is A line from the Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection book. Now what is the Skulduggery Pleasant Series? Who is the Author? Why did the Author make some questionable moves as a Screenwriter, Like I don't know, Name a movie with the name boys eats girls? Well mostly all will be explained in this presentation on Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection. Stick around to learn more! Plot Plot Skulduggery Pleasant is A series of books, however today i wanted to just tackle one measly book from the giant series of Skulduggery Pleasant. The plot of Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection is that Skulduggery (who is a living skeleton) Goes on to recruit a woman that goes by the name Valkyrie who is suffering from PTSD and depression after battles in War. He also goes onto recruit a boy named Omen Darkly who is only fourteen years old, talk about an epic childhood. In this book Skulduggery with Valkyrie and Omen Darkly try to stop Skulduggery's ex before she destroys the world. The most Cliche Plot ever or what, not the fighting ex part but the whole save the world thing. Anyway. Characters Characters in Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection Skulduggery Valkyrie Valkyrie the main female protagonist of the Skulduggery Pleasant series and in Skulduggery Pleasant resurrection she is dealing with implied PTSD and depression after war. Skulduggery is a detective and at the same time a human skeleton who was born on the 31 of December canonically to the book series. In Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection he goes onto recruit his protege Valkyrie Cain. You could say there's no SKELETONS in his closet! Yep that punchline fell flat. Anyway Moving On! Omen Darkly He is a 14 to 15 year old boy at Corrival Academy and he was born on the 1st of January 2004. Abyssinia Abyssinia is the Princess of the Darklands and Skulduggery's Ex girlfriend. Man that must be awkward Setting The place that Derek Landy has placed his imaginary world to be is an actual real place. The place that he has set it in is in Dublin. It is funny because Derek Landy was from Dublin himself. So he implanted a bit of his life into this fictional series. Place/Setting On Author Derek Landy Eye Bleach Movie The OK movie Derek Landy Was An Author who worked on the Skulduggery Pleasant series and who used to be a screen writer, A black belt in Karate, and used to work on a farm. He lived in Dublin Ireland and he was born on the 23rd of October 1974. He decided to quit screenwriting to become a book Author which seemed to be better for him as he also won the red house children's book award in 2008. His inspiration for working on the dialogue of his characters were from rapid dialogue movies something he used to love as a kid. He quit screen writing because of the constant collaborative process of film making. SO he quit starting the first ever novel in the Skulduggery Pleasant series with that name. He also wrote a book named demon road prior to the Skulduggery Pleasant series which involved a girl running away from all her problems, Talk about personal issues! When he was a screenwriter he went on to write two Irish movies one was a Movie with the name Boys Eat girls a horror comedy made in 2003 Somehow it got an award, Just imagine having to sit through that for an hour now that would give me a migraine. Input Laughter from audience. Still Waiting. There it is! Then there is dead bodies an Irish drama movie made in 2005 that is less cringe as its adversary boys eat girls. Like seriously who thought that movie name would be a good idea! Moving On! The Amazing book Author Why I Chose this Book I chose this book because of its fantastical lands and Vast amount of funny charming characters. This book appeals to me as a book that really sticks out like a sore thumb as it is interesting in a way i would say lots of books are but to me this book is a book that i think appeals to people who love fantasy type books but it also has a sense of different themes. Sometimes it is being a detective/crime case to solve, sometimes humor, sometimes magic and my favorite horror! That makes it so that it can connect with lots of different types of people uniting them together to read this series and the books that are contained. This book is jammed pack with exciting characters, funny dialogue and overall a great time if your thinking of trying this book out. I rate this book a 4/5 as even though i love it i have my favorites, That is your queue Penny wise and yeah sure the man Jack come up your all invited, Anyway i love this book and i hope you like it too. It is a lesser known book but i hope you enjoy it. Push your eyes into this fantastical world! Why I chose this book Thank you for reading my presentation on Skulduggery Pleasant Resurrection! Thank you!

Jenn's intense desire to“have fun" with Skip caused her to actually make love to Skip. Originally, the cookies were for Whitey but were handed to David because Margaret was attracted to him.

Jenn was “messing” with their entire universe Big Bob changes colour

Transcript: Characters Skulduggery The Story The Book A presentation by Callum Loughlin Skulduggery Pleasant is a series of books by Derek Landy. It is set in Dublin, where a Skeleton named Skulduggery is a detective with a partner named Stephanie. It is revealed that Stephanie's uncle discovered an ancient weapon called the Spectre which was used by the first sorcerers, to defeat their enemies named the Faceless Ones. Her uncle hid the Spectre in a maze built under the house which was inherited by Stephanie. Skulduggery and Stephanie discover this and find the weapon. The main antagonist, Serpine, wants to control this weapon. Skulduggery works for an organisation named "the sanctuary". In the end of the book, a person who works for the sanctuary named Mr Bliss, betrays them and gives the weapon to Serpine. A fight breaks out between Skulduggery and Serpine. Finally, Skulduggery destroys Serpine with the Spectre and all is well. In the epilogue, Skulduggery asks Stephanie if she wants to officially become his partner. Stephanie agrees and finally learns how to use magic. Derek Landy (the author of Skulduggery Pleasant) is actually a screenwriter. Skulduggery Pleasant was his first book. Derek was born in 1974 in Dublin, Ireland. Derek Landy Nefarian Serpine Skulduggery Pleasant Skullduggery used to be a man once, years ago. But Serpine killed his wife, child and finally, killed skulduggery. He is now an undead sorcerer and detective. He enjoys mentoring an being a friend to Stephanie. I really enjoyed the book! Although it might sound a bit clichéd and childish, it is actually a really good book! It has a good story with memorable characters and is action packed! I definately suggest you give this story a read! Review Stephanie The story begins with Stephanie, a niece to a popular author. When the author dies, he leaves Stephanie his house and all the royalties to the books he wrote. One night, when Stephanie is staying in the house, she is attacked by a man when Skulduggery comes to save her. He is wearing a disguise but it falls off to reveal he is a skeleton! After that, Stephanie discovers her uncle was murdered so she helps skullduggery solve the crime! The genre of this book is fantasy and mystery. The theme of the book is dark as everything is mostly sad (i.e Stephanie's uncle dying , Skulduggery's sad past etc.) Genre and Theme Serpine has been an enemy of skulduggery for years. He killed Skulduggery, his child and his wife. He is a necromancer and is very powerful. His goal is to raise an evil race of creatures called "the faceless ones!" He uses his right hand for magic. Stephanie is a 12-year old girl and is Skulduggery's apprentice. She found out about skulduggery after her uncle passed his house down to her. She discovers in the end of the book that she can use magic because she is a descendent of "Last of the Ancients", the people who discovered magic.
