The Terrible Truth is the 6th book of the Skulduggery Pleasant series. It is going to be released in April 2011.
I don't really know what it's about yet, but I have some ideas:
1) We learn the terrible truth about Lord Vile. 2)The truth about Darquesse.
3)The truth about Val's future.
4)The truth about why Vile brought Skul-man back to life
Questions you might have:
Why did he bring Skul-man back to life?
I don't know. Maybe because he wanted to see if he really was the death bringer. The death bringer breaks down the barriers between life and death, or something like that right? Bringing a dead man back to life is a really big proof of him being the death bringer.
What about Val? Isn't she the death bringer?
The necromancers assume that. Well, Wreath assumes that, and the other necros are neutral in this. We can't really be sure. But if she like brings back the dead, or something, then she and Vile have equal chances of being death bringer.
Possibilities of people Val might bring back to life:
Her little sibling
Tanith (I doubt it though. Derek planned for tanith to die in the first book, but his publishers convinced him not to. So he made do with torturing her in every book.)
All her friends
Who will die?
Alot of people, I assume. In the past books, people ALWAYS die. In a way, Derek Landy is sort of like Gordon Edgely. They both like gruesome deaths. Here's a list of possible deaths:
1) Pretty much everyone as we know it. Except for Val and Skul-man of course. Without them, the series would end. And this is a 9-book series, by the way.
Who will be Val's sibling?
Either a boy or a girl. Duh.
What will happen between Val, Fletcher, and Caelan?
Hmm... I'm still wondering about that. Give me your thoughts on this.
What will happen with Crystal and Carol?
Well, now that they know about the magicky world, they might play a major part. Landy isn't just gonna let them know the truth just for the heck of it. Maybe they'll annoy the heck out of Skul-man and he'll kill them? Hehe...
I can't think of anymore questions. If you have any, just comment, kay?
