Skulduggery Pleasant: Resurrection is the tenth book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series. It was first announced by Derek Landy via YouTube on July 29th 2016[1]. The book will have main characters Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain return, as well as a new protagonist Omen Darkly[2].


In this new book, the start of what Derek Landy has called "phase 2" of Skulduggery Pleasant, Skulduggery attempts to recruit Valkyrie (who is suffering from implied PTSD and depression) to join him again. They must work together to stop Abyssinia, skulduggery's ex, with the help of 14-year-old Omen Darkly.


"I was halfway through Last Stand of Dead Men, I think, when I realised that I had more stories to tell. I told myself that if Skulduggery and Valkyrie survived the series, I would leave the option open of returning to their world. There were still secrets I need to reveal, after all, and there were still horrors they had to face. They survived the first series. But they’re really going to wish they hadn’t."
Derek Landy in an interview about the book.[2]

Additionally, Landy has said Saracen Rue and Dexter Vex will appear in the series. Xena, China Sorrows, and Alison Edgley have also been mentioned to return. Tanith Low was implied to have a minor role. Roarhaven and the relationship between the magical community and mortals will feature[need specific tweets to reference].

Landy has also mentioned that previous open plot points will be answers, such as the secret Dusk discovered about Valkyrie's blood and Rue's power[needs reference].
