Summary

Books four, five and six in the Skulduggery Pleasant series - known collectively as the Death Bringer Trilogy, Derek Landy's fantastically imaginative series about our favourite dead detective.

Dark Days

Skulduggery Pleasant is lost on the other side of a portal, with only some evil gods for company. Can he possibly survive? (Yes, all right, he’s already dead. But still.)

Mortal Coil

Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back - just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down....

Death Bringer

The Necromancers no longer need Valkyrie to be their Death Bringer, and that’s a good thing. There’s just one catch....

book 4

in book 4, chapter 6 there is a conversation between springheel Jack and scapegrace, where springheel Jacks voice is used to speaking scapegraces sentences and vice versa, probably needs to be fixed, will edit when finished all of the books

Audio book's chapters are weird

I very much enjoy the story and narrating, but I find it really irritating how the chapter list thing in Audible works in this case. The previous Audio Collection (books 1-3) was normal and the chapters listed in the app started and ended at the same time as they did in the original book. However, in this audio book the chapter-clips are just random lenghts and in no way align with the named and numbered chapters in the book. The chapter dividing doesn't make any sense. Sometimes chapters change in the middle of a conversation! I like to set the sleep timer to pause when the chapter ends, and storywise it kinda just doesn't work nicely now.

Fab.

Another 3 great stories in this continuing series, shame about the different narrators doing the voices though as it spoilt the continuity but individually each narrator does a good job.

started well , ending was less enticing to carry o

i dont want to add spoilers, so i won't...

the first 4 books i enjoyed, but after that Val personality and snarkyness is mean and unlikeable, rather than witty sarcastic charm.

deathbringer... feels rushed to fit to much in, the suddenly super OP powers, the fight scenes far to drawn out, why 'he' couldnt defeat the 'deathbringer' buteasily held off the big bad a few minutes laters? how does thatake any sense?
whar happened to the reflection subplot? Caelan was ridiculous the whole time and the ending... im a little disappointed and not sure if i will continue with the next 3 books tbh

Change in narrator

The story is of course fantastic as always but the change in narrator (twice) is jarring and I’m left missing the original narrator who’s voices were much more distinct.
