The Review Competition

A few hours ago I was sent the finalists for the Gordon Edgley Book Review competition, where people had to review books that they (or anyone else) had never actually read. These reviews were BRILLIANT. We got some of the best, most imaginative responses back, and it was not easy picking winners.

But picking winners is what I had to do, and so the winners are Patricia Snake, Sophie Carter, Ella Corkum and Katie Roberts-Malpass.

Huge congratulations to the winners, and a huge congratulations to EVERYONE who entered. You have kept me entertained...!

Theatre of Shadows

Minions! Operatives! With just over two weeks to go, the countdown to Theatre of Shadows has truly begun. There are only a few tickets left, so if you want to take part in an ASTONISHING ADVENTURE THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD* then please book now to secure a place in Dublin!

(*May not actually change the world.)

Today marks the launch of the Theatre of Shadows microsite: here you'll find galleries, an archive of all the messages so far in the hunt for Silas, and all the news to come. Just click the link ENTER THE DARKNESS from the main Theatre of Shadows page. We've built this specifically to include all the American, Swedish and Norwegian Minions — who until this point have been unable to register — in order to have a truly global experience.  There'll be heaps more to come, and for anybody not based in USA Sweden or Norway, don't forget to register for the online Theatre of Shadows Mystery here.

The microsite password will be changed regularly so keep on here. First one to get you started though is… RESCUE.

Wondering what on earth I'm talking about?

Theatre of Shadows is an immersive fan event like no other… on Saturday 27th September, those lucky enough to secure a ticket will be taken on an adventure inside the world of the books. I'll be there, along with the incredible LARP (Live Action Role Playing) specialists who have helped produce this madness. There'll be role-playing, problem solving and an amazing quest to tackle. The event is tailor-made by yours truly and I'll be writing a brand new short story, inspired and informed by YOUR participation, on the day! Which means the brave actions of ALL the Operatives – Live and Remote - stand a chance of entering officially into the Skulduggery history books.

Once you've registered and are heading into battle: remember to leave a REFLECTION behind to keep friends and relatives quiet. Our shiny new Reflections Hall of Fame app is now live on Facebook. I want to see your preppiest, most saccharine outfits and expressions people! Remember — you Reflections are the goody-goody two-shoes version of you, so smile, be happy, and be the "perfect" version of you that you can be! If you'd like to share these as your profile pictures then all the better. Mention #TheatreofShadows so that other Operatives will know you're in on the secret.
