The Faceless Ones, a review

Skulduggery is back and just as mad as ever!


As always when reviewing series (and keeping the review spoiler free) this is gunna be a difficult one! This is the third book in the series and so much has happened since book one!

There’s so much depth to this middle grade series. Even at this point there are so many characters whose morals and choices are in a very grey area, the violence and gore has gone up a notch too. I don’t remember being phased by it at the time I read it as a kid… but maybe that’s just me?

The sarcasm and wit doesn’t slow down at all in this book, and the punches and fight scenes just keep coming. I’m still loving the character development of Valkyrie and seeing her both blossom in the magical world whilst pulling away from the “real” world.

The ending of this one is a cliffhanger of epic proportions, so make sure you’ve got book four handy for when you finish! As always I’m loving this series and loving this reread!!!

On CAWPILE I rated this:

Characters: 10

Atmosphere: 8

Writing: 8

Plot: 9

Intrigue: 8

Logic: 9

Enjoyment: 9

Which gives me a total of 8.71 rating which is a 4 star! Is anyone surprised? We all know I adore this series and I’m loving doing this reread along with everyone!

If you didn’t know, I’m actually quite a bit further ahead than this. I’m just behind on my reviews lol. And I’m still loving all of the books!! Can’t wait to delve into my reviews of them for you guys!

Highlight here for trigger warnings: loss of a friend, violence, death, kidnapping
