The best-selling return of skeleton detective Skulduggery Pleasant, out now in paperback. A lot has changed. Roarhaven is now a magical city, where sorcerers can live openly. Valkyrie Cain has been out of action for years, recovering from the war against her alter-ego Darquesse, which nearly destroyed her and everyone else. Some things never change though: bad people still want to do bad things, and Skulduggery Pleasant is still there to stop them. When Skulduggery learns of a plot to resurrect a terrifying evil, he persuades Valkyrie to join him for just 24 hours. But they need someone else on their team, someone inconspicuous, someone who can go undercover. Enter Omen Darkly. Student at the new Corrival Academy. Overlooked. Unremarkable in every way. 24 hours to save the world. One sharply-dressed skeleton. One grief-stricken young woman. One teenage boy who can't remember which class he's supposed to be in. This cannot end well...

Almost a century after the Australian Light Horse fought a series of epic and bloody battles against the Turkish Army across the deserts of the Middle East, Paul Daley and Mike Bowers retrace the steps of the men and boys who fought there. From enemy trenches where they charged the Turks on horseback, to narrow mountain passes where, exhausted, they slept in their saddles in retreat, Paul and Mike visit the hostile and lonely places where soldiers lost and buried their mates. Through battlefields still littered with shrapnel, bullet casings and even the odd human bone, they reflect on how the turbulent Middle East politics of the present collides with the past. Illustrated with archival and contemporary photographs, their story is part travelogue, part reportage and part history. Evocative, sometimes funny, sad and disturbing, Armageddon is two men on a fading Anzac trail.
