Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked by Derek Landy - review

'Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!'

Across the land, normal people are suddenly developing wild and unstable powers. Infected by a rare breed 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.

Kitana is a normal teenager who becomes infected by this magic and she and her friends become powerful but unstable, causing chaos wherever they go. Skulduggery and Valkyrie have to stop them but need to establish the cause of the magic before more people are affected and this takes over the world.

Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! I thought this book was amazing and I could hardly bare to put this book down. I loved the moral turmoil in the story which kind of makes you feel for the baddie even though you know all of the time that it is wrong to. All of the characters are excellent throughout until the very end!

The epilogue was very chilling and it left you so frustrated at having to wait for the next book!
