    One thought on “Playing with Fire”

    1. What a thrilling, funny yet dark plot! I loved every page, there never seems to be a dull moment in these books on to book 3!

    2. this one shows a bit of landy's very desturbing amagination.i love all the skulduggery pleasant books so much i can read them anytime

    3. Vom Grundprinzip eigentlich die gleiche Geschichte wie im ersten Teil, aber es ist einfach super unterhaltsam & eine gute Mischung aus ernsthaft und humorvoll 👍🏻

    4. Woah. This series. I REALLY REALLY LIKE IT, OKAY? I may flail.but I will attempt logicalness. Because I am kind like that. I listened to this on audio and I can't recommend it enough! It's narrated by a dude with an Irish accent andn I say: BEST ACCENT IN THE WORLD?!! It was wonderful to listen too and the voices for different characters were perfection. It also went really fast. I listened to it all in just a few days. These books are downright hilarious. If I can only ask for two things in boo [...]

    5. Окей приключих я още в училище, но все още не мога да приема, че няма да продължа поредицата, защото третата книга я няма в библиотекатаще се гладува, предвиждам го

    6. This is a crazy book series, but I like that about it. A lead character who is a sorcerer whose body is skeletal. A thirteen-year-old girl who stays out all night fighting evil creatures and sends her reflection to school as a stand in. Heinous, and I do mean heinous villains who don't mind exploding people, along with psychopathic assassins with Southern accents who can dig through the ground and who have a favorite straight razor. Yup. That's what this book is about. I think that this one is a [...]

    7. Honestly, it's great. What else can I say? It was enjoyable, it was fast, it was hilarious. It's basically everything I want in a story with no unnecessary romance. I'll still write a full review for book one, but I doubt I will for every book in this series.

    8. An endless night made me finish the book. Or rather it kept me awake! If you say its a young-adult, you are perhaps lowing its caliber. It doesn't shy on hardcore action, brutality, violent killings. It has a rich storyline, continues action, fun and miracle. After Harry Potter and Dresden Files, I am enjoying a series so much. Three cheers for Derek Landy. You Rock!!

    9. After listening on Audio to the first book in the ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ series I couldn’t wait to read the second. The first book was funny, magical and full of adventure, and this one also delivers all of those things. I love the soundtrack and special effect sounds on the audio book, it really sets the scene and makes the story more exciting! In the first book there were so many laugh out loud moments but I didn’t feel like there were as many in this one. I still really love the bante [...]

    10. If books were food, Skulduggery Pleasant would be a chocolate-covered gummy bear.Allow me to elaborate. At first, the idea of a chocolate-covered gummy bear sounds weird and a little gross. But in reality, although it is weird, it is completely delicious. In the same way, the idea of Skulduggery Pleasant is weird and unappealing: the hero is a skeleton sorcerer. Gross. But once you taste it, you discover how delightfully fun it is. Don't get me wrong, it isn't very good for you. In fact, consume [...]

    11. Борбата срещу злите сили продължава и в тази част. Стефани или вече по известна като Валкирия Каин и Скълдъгъри Плезънт трябва да се изправят срещу верните на Безликите, които искат отново да ги събудят и сложат край на света. Разбира се, нашите така смели и забавни герои на [...]

    12. I'm excited to be able to read this series! The first book was excellent and I have Brooks from One Piece pop into my head. I find it so humorous, because to me I can positively say that this wouldn't seem strange to me For some reason it seems that the villains are funnier than the protagonists. You're definitely in for a good laugh while reading this installment. I recommend for angsty early teens.That's all for now.Cheers Pretties!

    13. Wow - What Fun!Moving forward in her apprenticeship to Skulduggery, Valkrie Cain (aka Stephanie Edgley) has made great strides, but has a great deal left to learn. Skulduggery's old nemesis, Baron Vengeous and his band of legendary monsters, known as the Grotesguery are determined to release the Faceless Ones and destroy the world. Of course, the oh' so cool, ultra chic, quick witted wizard stands in their way. The story takes off when the Baron escapes from what was reportedly an inescapable pr [...]

    14. Приключи и втората ми среща с детектива-скелет.И категорично мога да кажа, че беше още по-интересна от първата. Едва ли казвам нещо ново, но понякога първата книга от една поредица, особено когато е толкова завладяваща още с първите си страници, поражда високи очаквания, кои [...]

    15. the second book in skulduggery pleasant series :well the story continues with some new characters, new enemies and friends, the goal of the bad guys hasn't changed, it's still raising the faceless ones :/ though that might be a little bit boring to the more mature readers, the book makes up for it by more humorous moments and comments,which reminded me a little of Terry Pratchet's works, more cliff hangers and oh my god the new bad guys , they are soo coool , skulduggery is no longer my only fav [...]

    16. FAJNOŠ LEBKOHNÁÁÁT!!! Bože, to bolo zase niečo! Akože fakt, som si ani na chvíľu nevydýchol, Derek Landy mi jednoducho nedal šancu! Akože vôbec. Áno, Luu mala pravdu, že je to kúsok slabšie ako jednotka, ale to len preto, že tu nie sú žiadne mindshattering odhalenia a v podstate je nám už svet známy a --vraj-- v trojke a štvroke to zasa rozbaľuje úplne šialene! Takže ja sa idem hneď pustiť do ďalšieho dielu! To sa proste inak ani nedá.

    17. What it's trying to do, it does amazingly. Fun, funny, adventurous, unusual, kick-ass characters, good vilains, everything a classically entertaining book has and so much more (also more female). No time to breathe, too, an amazing thing to have :DI may be subjective with the stars, but i dont give a flying fuck, this was amazing :D

    18. Well once again I have completed another book! While on my journey to finish watching the Clone Wars tv series so I can do a review on the Ahsoka novel, I decided to keep read- Okay, I really didn't 'decide' to do it more than I REALLY wanted to keep reading Skulduggery in the meantime until I can actually complete that. We'll see how long that takes me or if I get sucked into reading this whole series before being able to move on. If you HAVE NOT read my first review on Skulduggery Pleasant ple [...]

    19. 3.5 STARSI enjoyed this story but not nearly as much as the first book and not nearly as much as I'd hoped. While Landy's talent as a writer is still evident, and I still love the characters of Skulduggery and Valkyrie (and some of the new ones are very interesting! I think my "favorite" is Billy Ray Sanguine), I felt this story lacked the sparkle and wit of the first one. It focused more on action sequences and less on character development and dialogue. The action sequences are well written as [...]

    20. Auch das 2. Abenteuer rund um Skulduggery Pleasant & Walküre Unruh hat mich vollends überzeugt. Derek Landy erschafft sehr unterhaltsame Geschichten. Skulduggery Pleasant ist einfach Kult und die Schurken stehen ihm in Nichts nach. 5 Sterne plus!!!

    21. Bulgarian reviewI think this one was better than the first book because there was more action and I like when I read about good battles ^^Anyway, this series is very addictive.

    22. Another thrilling adventure with Skulduggery, and a delicious sequel to the first :-) More freaky bad guys than you can shake a stick at, lots of action and magic, and plenty of humor made this another really fun ride. I'm looking forward to the third!

    23. Second time reading this and first time listening to the audiobook. I enjoyed this more than Scepter of the Ancients and can't wait to continue my reread of the Skulduggery Pleasant series!

    24. Nostalgia aside, I just really adore this series, its world-building and its characters tbh. Can't wait to get through the rest of the books!

    25. Stephanie Edgley has been having a rough time as of late.After her uncle’s death, twelve-year-old Stephanie meets Skulduggery Pleasant, a fast-talking, snappy dressing detective who just happens to be a walking, talking skeleton. He tells Stephanie that she is directly descendant from the Ancients, people who used control magic.Under Skulduggery’s tutelage, Stephanie’s skills have grown. She is an Elemental, able to control Air, Earth, Water and Fire to her will. While still not as skilled [...]

    26. Even after a re-read I can still vouch for this series. It is one of my favourite series of all time. Don't let the cover nor the supposed 'target audience' fool you. This series is unique, fast-paced and plenty violent (not even sure how the age rating at the back is 9+). The dry humour, wit and great dialogue of this book will make you laugh and cheer for the characters. The plot in itself is one of the most unique I've seen it's a shame not many have picked this up. Even the author's dedicati [...]

    27. Davon Pritchard11-19-10 Playing With Fire By Derek Landy Can you imagine being a person with special powers having to fight crime every day until your life is done or if you lose it in a fight? If you do then you can imagine how Valkrie feels wanting to be like all the other kids but just knowing she can’t. Playing with fire by Derek Landy is one of the best books you will ever read about a powerful girl. Valkrie is a girl with special powers to stop crime. She can’t likes being with he [...]

    28. I'm giving this book 4.5/5 stars rather than 5 (will explain why) but this is still so great!Valkyrie Cain is 13 in the second novel on the Skulduggery Pleasant series but in some places she does act like a child. I guess fighting magical beings must take its toll.After defeating Serpine, Skul and Valkyrie face the new threat of Baron Vengeous, his shadow army and his weird Frankenestein's monster known as the Grotesquery. (Because it's disgusting)There's also a couple of comedy villains thrown [...]
