Critic reviews

"Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure." (Jonathan Stroud, author of the Bartimaus Trilogy)
"It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters." (Philip Ardagh, Guardian)
"Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel." (Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series)

Incredible!

This is an incredible series! I’m not sure why I never knew about this. The characters are well developed and interesting, the mystery is solid, There is humor & wit, and the action is well written. An added bonus is the fact that this is very much an adult, sophisticated story but without all the language. So I can listen to it in the car with my kids without worrying about what they might hear. This is a must have!
