Skulduggery Pleasant – Mortal Coil is the fifth in the series by Derek Landy. It would be best to point out here that these books have gone on to win a bagful of awards and have millions of fans around the globe.
Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain (Stephanie) are back, only to see their whole world in devastation and upheaval. Like in Dark Days, the body-snatching Remnants, who can get into and take over a human being without having a clue, are unleashed to create mayhem. These wispy horrors emerge from imprisonment at Midnight Hotel.
Valkyrie is obsessed with protecting her dark secret, and when she finally reveals it to Skulduggery, she keeps her name out and impairs skills. Skulduggery and the gang become more vulnerable, and unable to stop Darquesse from regaining ground.
They encounter a man called Tesseract, must stop him at all costs, or they will die.
Also, there is a guy with a East European accent, Russian actually saying, ‘There are ways to kill even dead men.’
