Resurrection by Derek Landy
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I loved the rest of the Skulduggery Pleasant series, so I was really excited to be able to read the 10th book. Resurrection just didn't live up to the hype. It felt like an unnecessary addition to the series. Most of the characters I had grown to love where nowhere to be found, and a bunch of random characters that I could care less about took up most of the story.
Resurrection takes place five years after the 9th book. A lot can change in that amount of time, but the changes made seem unrealistic. Why is there suddenly a school for kids to learn magic? There never was before. Did someone read the Harry Potter books and decide a school for magic was the way to go? It seems odd.
Why is Omen's brother the chosen one that is supposed to be doing great things with his life? The book doesn't go into details about the great things he is doing, so unless there is going to be another book, it seems like a waste of words to even have the brother there. Maybe it is just to give the reader more reason to cheer for Omen. Everyone wants the underdog to win.
This book was too all over the place for me. It seems to have no connection to the other books in the series.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
