Last Stand of Dead Men Strap Line Competition [COMPETITION NOW CLOSED]

Because we appreciate you guys SOOOOO much, we’re running another competition! Look at the gorgeous jacket for Last Stand of Dead Men? Isn’t it lovely?! How excited are you? Pretty excited, we bet. So in celebration we’re running a strap line competition. The strap line on Last Stand of Dead Men is ‘No one is safe.’ Spooky, huh? But we’d like you get your thinking caps on and tell us what your strap line would be, if you got to choose. Here’s some inspiration…

Kingdom of the Wicked was ‘Cold. Blooded. Thriller.’

Death Bringer was ‘Kicking evil very hard in the face.’

Mortal Coil was ‘Gripping’ – remember all those creepy hands?


Well, now you’ve seen the cover for Last Stand of Dead Men. What would you put on there?

And here’s a little reminder of what Last Stand of Dead Men has in store for our favourite characters…


War has finally come.

But it’s not a war between good and evil, or light and dark – it’s a war between Sanctuaries. For too long, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they’re going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making.

But while this war is only beginning, another war rages within Valkyrie herself. Her own dark side, the insanely powerful being known as Darquesse, is on the verge of rising to the surface. And if Valkyrie slips, even for a moment, then Darquesse will burn the world and everyone in it.


And the prize – this one is really good – Derek is going to choose his favourite 10, and we’ll print those up as posters for the winners. Basically, this means you win a completely personalised poster version of the cover of Last Stand of Dead Men to put up on your wall. And we might even get Derek to sign them!


Think carefully, there’s limited space… Good luck!
