 Skulduggery and Valkyrie are facing a new enemy: Baron Vengeous, who is determined to bring back the terrifying Faceless Ones and is crafting an army of evil to help him. Added to that, Vengeous is about to enlist a new ally ("if" he can raise it from the dead): the horrible Grotesquery, a "very" unlikable monster of legend.Once Vengeous is on the loose, dead bodies and vampires start showing up all over Ireland. Now pretty much everybody is out to kill Valkyrie, and the daring detective duo faces its biggest challenge yet.But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is just a little closer to home?Look for Scepter of the Ancients.

My review:

What's in common between a curious girl and skeleton? That the lately passed away  horror author was the uncle of the girl and the best friend of the skeleton. Did I get your attention or not yet? 
The story begins with telling the well of the dead author when we all including Valkyrie's family finds out that the lately passed away one left her all of his money, house and everything including his problem which mostly lead to his death. His best friend Skulduggery finds himself in charge of the safety of the very curious Valkyrie who finds herself within the world of ancient fights, book of names, the old ones and people in the battle to get the faceless one back to our world. She gets many new friends, discover her inner powers and destiny; by the end of this book you will get very entertained and  you will wish to read more of this series.

I am in love with this series already and going to give it 5 out of 5 stars.
It suites Middle Grade reads and adults who are looking for light laughs and fun ;) .
This is such exciting, well written, amazing conversations, FUN and entertainment all at one book.
Please hand me part two right away...

"So you won't keep anything from me again?" 
He put his hand to his chest. "Cross my heart and hope to die." 
"Okay then. Though you don't actually have a heart," she said. 
"I know." 
"And technically, you've already died." 
"I know that too." 
"Just so we're clear."
