News: Book Cover for Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked by Derek Landy

I spotted this on Derek's blog yesterday and thought you would all like to see it. If you have been visiting The Book Zone for a while you will know that I am a huge fan of the Skulduggery Pleasant books, and I love every one of the covers that illustrator Tom Percival has produced for them, and the hardcover spines look great lined up on my bookshelf. The cover for Kingdom of the Wicked, the seventh novel in the series, is no exception - what a great close up of SP's face! The book is not due to be published until 30th August, but I'm already excited by the blurb. Fingers crossed Tanith will make an appearance after her absence from Death Bringer.

Make sure to click on the image to see it in all of its super-sized glory!



Magic is a disease.

Across the land, normal people are suddenly developing wild and unstable powers. Infected by a rare strain of magic, they are unwittingly endangering their own lives and the lives of the people around them. Terrified and confused, their only hope lies with the Sanctuary. Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are needed now more than ever.

And then there's the small matter of Kitana. A normal teenage girl who, along with her normal teenage friends, becomes infected. Becomes powerful. Becomes corrupted. Wielding the magic of gods, they're set to tear the city apart unless someone stands up against them.

Looks like it's going to be another one of those days…
