Summary

Skulduggery, Valkyrie and Omen return in the 14th and penultimate novel in the internationally best-selling Skulduggery Pleasant series – and their most epic test yet.

In a matter of days, the world will change.

Billions of lives will be wiped away in a final, desperate search for the Child of the Faceless Ones — she who is destined to bring about the return of humankind's ancient overlords.

To prevent this, Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain have one last – terrible – option: the assassination of Damocles Creed. With protests stirring in the magical city of Roarhaven, with riots and revolutions on the horizon, Valkyrie must decide who she wants to be: the hero who risks everything for a noble ideal, or the killer who sacrifices her own soul for the fate of humanity.

The decision must be made, and time is running out.

Jokes Banter Magic Adventure

I am absolutely loving this audiobook. Derek Landy has really brought back the comedy in this instalment. The funny banter between characters starts and when you think the jokes are done, they’re not! There’s more funny dialogue to come and this narrator is so good at delivering comedic timing. All the magic and fighting is so adventurous too. So clever the way the plot flows out of characters being diabolical.
