The kids just love this book series, Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy. Here are a few wallpaper images from the site showing off the skeletal physique of the main character and some of the other magical characters.
I started reading them to join in the fun, has me interested in narrative creation at the same time. I have also been reading bits of Writing Fiction for Dummies as well, love reading about plot structures and character archetypes etc.
