Theatre of Shadows is a short story that was released following the main Theatre of Shadows event. It was written in the space of an afternoon by Derek Landy and the actions of the Operatives helped determine the flow of the story. It was edited and released as part of the Armageddon Outta Here paperback.


The short story tells the Theatre of Shadows event from the point of view of Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain as they search for Silas Nadir. They eventually receive the help of the Operatives.


Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are hunting for Silas Nadir. They catch him, only for him to activate a sigil and shunt them to a dimension with no humans. There are huge carnivorous beetles that try to eat them. They then escape after Creyfon Signate shunts them back out of it. By that time, Silas Nadir has escaped.
