    "The Humour of Earlier Novels is Missing"

    This books lacks the humour found in the earlier novels and in the last third of the book, there is too much violence and death. The characters are in a constant search for more powerful weapons with which to solve problems. I will continue with the series.

    "The new book in the trilogy of trilogies"

    Now of course all Skulduggery books should get five stars by default, but I felt that with this outing Derek wanted to cram too many new ideas into one book. It loses a star for being so full of overlapping plot points that by the end I thought I still had a couple of hours to go because I had forgotten what the actual plot of this book was. None the less while not being perfect this is definitely a brilliant set up for the chaos that is going to be the Darquesse trilogy.

    "Another outstanding dark adventure"

    I can't get enough of these Skulduggery novels, they're the perfect thing to have on when pottering in the garden or stuck in traffic.
    The story is a good one though I had a feeling that a little too much material was included in this one, but that's a good complaint to make.
    Those who have avidly devoured their way through the previous 6 will enjoy this one immensely. If you haven't I envy you a delicious journey into a fantastic, crazy, action packed world.

    "Fantastic, can't wait for the next!"

    A fabulous edition to the Skulduggery Pleasant series and probably my favorite so far. If you're familiar with the series you'll know what to expect: Fast paced, edgy and witty. But you're in for a few surprises too...



    If you're a newcomer to the series, you might still enjoy it, but the plot relies heavily on familiarity with events in previous books, so I highly recommend starting from the beginning.



    This is the first SP book I have on audio book, so I can't compare narration. But Stephen Hogan did an excellent job capturing the character's personalities and emotions (Lenka's voice is adorable!). I certainly wouldn't mind listening to the other audio books.



    All in all, anther great book in a great series. The only problem is it'll leave you craving another.
