Plot hole regarding Scepter of the Ancients (spoilers?)
« on: April 12, 2019, 03:22:46 PM »
When Valkyrie found out that the Scepter was bonded to Alice, why didn't she just find a way to shunt it to another dimension to break the bond? By keeping it a secret, her sister stays a target and she loses access to a powerful weapon. If it is important to keep the status of the scepter a secret, the shunter doesn't even need to know that Valkyrie has the scepter with her and Skulduggery could have made up a fake mission involving shunting to another dimension.

probably because valkryie was not actually a smart girl and approached problems with her fists instead of her brain. that isn't necessarily a plot hole so much as just an alternate way the scenario could have gone tbf

Yes that is true, however she would have to find a shunter that is aware of a habitable dimension first  , such as Nadir or Signate, and they would be difficult to locate when pressed for time I guess.
(edit: it is mentioned that there are few shunters left, and both Shunters known to the reader are unlikely to aid Valkyrie I believe)
