The latest book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series is slightly disappointing. It's still funny and the characters are great as always, but the fight sceens are unnecessarily drawn out and violent which detracts from the story. I can't wait for the next one, but I hope he goes back to developing the characters and the story.
