Summary

The sixth instalment in the historic, hysterical and horrific Skulduggery Pleasant series. Think you’ve seen anything yet? You haven’t. Because the Death Bringer is about to rise…

The Necromancers no longer need Valkyrie to be their Death Bringer, and that’s a Good Thing. There’s just one catch. There’s a reason the Necromancers don’t need her any more. And that’s because they’ve found their Death Bringer already, the person who will dissolve the doors between life and death. And that’s a very, very Bad Thing….

Good book, but don't like the narrator.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend, but if you like consistency, don't listen on here. The narrator is different.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Death Bringer?

There were many memorable moments, but I feel that the most memorable and shocking one was when the "toxic twins" started to become friends with Valcary.

Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Hogan’s performances?

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy this one, however in all fairness this could be due to the fact I've only ever heard Rupert Degas read these books before. I like to remain open minded and therefore I would listen to another performance by him.

Was Death Bringer worth the listening time?

I would say that it was 70% worth my time, however I had to get used to recognising the change in voices from Rupert Degas to Stephen Hogan.

Any additional comments?

I would have liked it a lot more if Rupert Degas had continued to read the books, however I understand this is not always possible. I feel that Stephen Hogan did a good job in trying though.

Unbelievable

This amazing book has but beaten my expectations once again. starting of with a Mystery and ending with a tragic finish. I would give this book 11 out of 10. The way the author has managed to separate facts and mythic stories together into one book. Its a white knuckle roller-coaster. This book has already made an extreme amount of attention form not just teenagers like myself but with also adults aswell.

Amazing book, i hope that the author does not finish writing.

Did not see that coming. That twist about Skulduggery's past I through was brilliant. Makes you understand why he does what he does.
