Kids’ Club Review by Leonid: Dark Days

Dark days, by Derek Landy

Skulduggery pleasant dark days: I found it was very funny and action packed, but with mysteries to unravel as well. I like how sometimes a characters are killed off, or leave the story to keep you on edge and slightly uncomfortable but exited. Heres the basic outline of the book… skulduggery the wise cracking detective is trapped in a parallel dimension and Valkyrie, skulduggery’s companion, is
left on her own to save skulduggery from certain death.
It’s a good book with lots of action combined with a slight detective novel theme. good for ages 8 and over.

If your an action lover, this book would be great for you. It’s about a girl called Katniss (age: 16) who is poor, and lives in district 12 (a district is like a town district 1 is the richest and district 12 is the poorest) so to keep her family alive she has to hunt for food. Every year there is what they call “The Hunger games” where two people(tributes) from each district fight to the death. There’s 24 tributes but only one comes out. Who will it be?
