Skulduggery Pleasant Book 8 Revealed! (UPDATE)

The release date might be closer than you think!
War has finally come. 
But it's not a war between good and evil, or light and dark- it's a war between Sanctuaries. For too long now, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they're going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making.But while this war is only beginning, another war rages within Valkyrie herself. Her own dark side, the insanely powerful being known as Darquesse, is on the verge of rising to the surface. And if Valkyrie slips, even for a moment, then Darquesse will burn the world and everyone in it."-Amazon
Book 8 Info:
  • Release Date (UK): August 29 2013! 
  • Publisher: Harper Collins
  • Page Count: 576!
 The release date is much closer than I thought! The last book was only in October!
Very nice teaser cover going on there.  Oh and yes, I almost forgot to tell you the awesome title for book 8! It's called.... "Last Stand of Dead Men".....  
It Doesn't really sound right to me. I think it should be called "Last Stand of The Dead Men", considering that "the dead men" are an assassins group, not a bunch of dead people. (Aside for Skulduggery) 
What do you think?


  1. I know a lot of people who think Derek's trying to trick us with the title. So it might not be the last stand of the dead men, but it might be the least stancd of men who are dead

    1. LOL, OH! Just had an Idea!
      What if, the eighth book is about a bad necromancer wanting to raise and army of the dead! Like an army of skeletons and such?
      It would make sense of the title....
      OR perhaps a bad necromancer is looking to make clones skulduggery! So they can have their own skulluggery army working for their causes? That would make for a good book.

    That wouldn't work because Derek said that Book 7,8 and 9 and completely focused on Darquesse

      there is giong to be a book 9? i though it is going to end at this one, number 8

    Of course their is going to be a book 9, Derek has said before that the series is set is three mini trilogies; the Faceless Ones Trilogy, which is the first one, Playing with Fire and The Faceless Ones; the Necromancer Trilogy, which is Dark Days, Mortal Coil and Death Bringer; with the third one being the Darquesse Trilogy, with is Kingdom of the Wicked, Last Stand of Dead Men and the last one.
    And maybe the title has something to do with the fact that they are the underdogs of the war, so maybe the title isn't from The normal POV (if that makes any sense), but the other Sanctuaries POV, in which case they weould see them as dead men because they will lose the war and all be dead. Just a suggestion.
