Summary

She's 12. He's dead. But together they're going to save the world. Hopefully. 

The third book in the best-selling Skulduggery Pleasant series. 

You've seen it all before: some bad guy wants to bring about the end of the world. A few people get hurt, sure, but everything's all right in the end. Well...not this time.

Entertaining, yet losing momentum

The series started out with a bang! Entertaining and the narrator handling all the voices with skill.
Interesting story with bursts of adventure. Catchy musical effects.
And that’s the same for books 2 and 3 - the SAME musical interludes; predictable phases of life and adventure.
And downright creepy the relationship between a skeleton and a 14 year old. C’mon! Skeleton or not, he’s still a “grown man!”
And what’s up with her shadow? This is not going to go well and valkarie minimizes how she’s actually not engaged with her family...losing momentum for me.
