Summary

What can we say, without giving too much away?

Not much, is the answer.

But what we CAN say is that this book is hilarious, it’s tense, and it’s packed with all the eye-popping action, crackling one liners and imaginative set pieces you’ve come to expect. There’s a new threat to our plucky heroine, of course. But that’s not all. There’s also the little fact of the Big Bad, the uber-baddy who’s going to come along and really, really destroy the world. (Really.) And what we learn about that villain in this book will literally make your jaw fall off and your hair go white with shock. (Not really.)

Will Skulduggery make it out of the Faceless Ones’ dimension?

Who knows. The problem is, he may not have much to come back to….

Almost totally fab

I do love the Skulduggery Pleasant series, such witty and well plotted adventures and this is one of my favourite stories. Rupert Degas is a wonderful narrator; he really creates an image of the characters and they have stayed with me as I've gone on and read the paper versions of the subsequent installments. I think it's a shame Degas didn't stay on to voice these. Having said that, there are a few occasions where he does the wrong voice for the character (notably getting Remus Crux and Springheeled Jack mixed up in conversation, which is a bit confusing). I can live with it though, because everything else is perfect.

slight glitch but otherwise brilliant

Great book, Mainly well read and Rupert Degas has done brilliantly in previous titles, a little let down in this one as the wrong voices are used in a particular scene which distracts some what. Looking forward to the next title.

Really brilliant but some issues with the voices

Another great performance given for a fantastic story. Brian Bowles really nails the different Irish dialects. On occasion he accidentally assigned the wrong voice to the wrong character but apart from that it was great
