This Is Awesome...



Oh, and my publishers would like me to include the Amazon link so you can pre-order this wonderful, wonderful book. Now, normally I hate linking to ANYTHING that has to do with selling my own books... and this is no exception...

(oh, and I also have no idea how these words ended up in the middle of the page like this, but hey...)

This is the link:


Whether you use it or not is up to you.

PS

The colour for this one is shiny GOLD.

PPS

I think now is the time to applaud one Mister Tom Percival.

Derek, I am thinking the same thing as my big brother here: What are those monsters?

Kribu said...

Oh, I LOVE it!!! I mean, all the covers have been great, but this is probably my favourite hardback cover yet, together with the hardback covers of the first and fourth books (I wasn't so enamoured with Death Bringer cover, somehow).

Everything just ... works.

*admires*
*admires the gorgeousness that is Skulduggery*
*admires the artwork in general*
*likes the tag line*

Miss Cain said...

I cant wait to see it in the shops cus when i see it, its MINE!!!!!!!!!!!

Nixion Strange said...

Cold. Blooded. Thriller

Miss Cain said...

Im gonna go get my sis, she probably wont act like me but anyway......

Nixion Strange said...

Derek, when I see you on the Aussie tour, I hope you remember me!!!!

Lorelei Izabell Fetch said...

Nixion Strange said...

I might colapse, but you know, whatever. I'll do it in a cool way

Nixion Strange said...

Phone?!
Noooooooo! This better be someone telling you to realease this masterpiece now!!!!!

Calamity said...

...
Alright then, Derek.
How are you, just off tangent?

Nixion Strange said...

Oh, and Derek, just so you know, your profile doesn't mention Death Bringer. Just a heads up, or a FYI. Whatever it'd be called

Eve the ROCK said...

Im going to have to see for myself when it's released, arent I? Ah well. AT LEAST THRRES THIS!!! AAAAH!

Kribu said...

Also, I've already preordered both the Kindle version on Amazon.com and the hardback on bookdepository, as soon as they became available (Amazon UK shipping costs are insane)... but somehow, seeing the cover makes it all the more real.

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Nixion Strange said...

Oh, sometimes Val isn't in a cover. That doesn't mean that she ISN'T GOING TO AWESOMEINISE OUR BRAINS! AND THEN SKULDUGGERY WILL FULLY REAWESOMEINISE OUR SOULS!

Miss Cain said...

*starts clapping weirdly because she is STILL shaking*

Miss Cain said...

I LOVE YOU BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lorelei Izabell Fetch said...

If I explode I bet there'll be confetti.

Also it has just occurred to me that those creatures only be "the wicked".
What do you think?

Miss Cain said...

I WANT THE BOOK NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its gonna look SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pretty on my shelf!!

Nixion Strange said...

Tom, you could draw a piece of blank paper and make it look more awesome than famous artists could ever hope to.
Derek, you could write about two people talking about stock returns (I actually don't quite know what they are...) and make it so awesome that several people would die from too much awesome!!!!

BellaDonna Curse said...

oh dear lord that is awesome *dies from awesomness*

Eve the ROCK said...

I suppose, Izz.

*body starts convulsing*

Dancing fire (sparkling) said...

*starts hypervetilating again*

Miss Cain said...

yep, i agree with Izz, the creatures are the Wicked


ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I cant believe im still seeing it!!!!!!!!!

Nixion Strange said...

I dunno. I read somewhere it's about people who suddenly devolp powers of gods. OH!
If a heap of people got it in the same area, then it would be a KINGDOM OF THE WICKED!!!!


No?

Lorelei Izabell Fetch said...

Oh and of course:
*presses button to play applause*

Eve the ROCK said...

*is slowly devouring fingers*

Miss Cain said...

MY EYES!!!!!!! THEY HURT FROM AWESOMENESSMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Eve the ROCK said...

Can't deny your logic, Nix

Nixion Strange said...

I've gone blind, the only light is this book!!!!

Miss Cain said...

Oh, yeah, I read that SOMEWHERE......

Miss Cain said...

I LOVE SP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nixion Strange said...

THEY'VE ALREADY POSTED THE COVER ON SKULPEDIA
THAT WAS FAST

Nixion Strange said...

Magic is a disease.

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

And then there's the small matter of Kitana. A normal teenage girl who, along with her normal teenage friends, becomes infected. Becomes powerful. Becomes corrupted. Wielding the magic of gods, they're set to tear the city apart unless someone stands up against them.

Looks like it's going to be another one of those days…



IF THEY'RE GETTING INFECTED, THAN THE LAND WOULD BECOME A KINGDOM OF THE WICKED!!!!!

Miss Cain said...

just put the link on my Skype thingo

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Derek, by the way, I saw your comment on the other post! I shrieked when I saw it... THANK YOU FOR SAYING HAPPY BIRTHDAY! AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SAYING WE CAN PROBAB LY ARRANGE TO MEET UP!

I have another request for you now...

Will you please say hi to Amanda? Pleeeeeeease? Pretty please (although making the Please look more attractive doesn't help)? Or, even better, you could call her China Pleasant. She hates when people do that. But coming from YOU? That would be hilarious.

Eve the ROCK said...

Oh, come on, Val. He didn't even say hi to ME.

Nixion Strange said...

Nor ME!

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Well maybe he'll say hi to Amanda!

Nixion Strange said...

But... what about me? It isn't fair?

Eve the ROCK said...

Yeah.

This was a good day though. A very very good day.

Nixion Strange said...

something about my share


Can't you see? I wanna live. But you just take more than you giiiiive

Eve the ROCK said...

I've had enough now I want my share
