Skulduggery Pleasant #11: Midnight
Can our heroes race to save a life before the clock strikes midnight? There are lots of reasons why Valkyrie fights. The world is worth saving. She quite likes a good scrap. And most of all, she wants to keep her loved ones safe from harm. But now it’s all gone wrong. Her little sister Alice is lost – and she’s definitely not in Wonderland. A ruthless killer has snatched her as bait, to lure Valkyrie into a battle she can’t win. Skulduggery is trapped, so he’s out of the picture. That leaves Valkyrie alone, with twelve hours to find Alice. Tick tock. Tick tock.
