I've read the first book of the trilogy since this post was made, two of the First Law World books, and his entire Shattered Sea trilogy. Enjoyed all of them quite a lot.

Oh and I also met the man himself:



That's me on the left and him on the right. This was at the signing for Sharp Ends at the Newcastle Waterstones, it was bloody great. He read a chapter from the book and it was absolutely hilarious hearing him read those lines so seriously, ("I would not want to get into a pissing contest with a man. Say what you will about cocks, they do give them better range."), and he promised (jokingly but I hope with maybe some seriousness) that my favourite character Cas Shenkt would be in the next First Law trilogy.

Meeting the author is so unfair and makes one's vote for best writers vote not count! They cant be impartial! Just teasing LoTN. Your lucky, there's a few authors out there I'd really like to meet. I need to get more of his books but I'm on the Skullduggary series right now since it was so highly recommended by so many people.

Me among them, that series is fantastic and one of the few series i've read where every entry, all nine of them, deserve higher than a 9.0/10 to me. Seriously, Derek Landy is incapable of writing a bad book as far as i've seen. His Demon Road trilogy, which I finished recently, is brilliant as well. If you love Skulduggery, pick that up once you're finished. It should tide you over until SP book ten is released next year.
