Publisher's Summary

Meet Skulduggery Pleasant:

Ace detective
Snappy dresser
Razor-tongued wit
Crackerjack sorcerer
and walking, talking, fire-throwing skeleton...

...as well as ally, protector, and mentor of Stephanie Edgely, a very unusual and darkly talented 12-year-old.

These two alone stand in the way of an all-consuming, ancient evil. The end of the world?

Over his dead body.

©2007 Derek Landy; (P)2007 HarperCollins Publishers

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Rupert Degas is flawless in his interpretation of the story. Even minor characters come deliciously to life....A must-have purchase." (School Library Journal)
"This production is exactly the reason young adult fantasy fare can work so well as audio entertainment. Narrator Rupert Degas...does a bang-up job...Degas' timing and complete grasp of the main character's personality couldn't be better." (AudioFile)
"Degas gives voice to a host of magical creatures with cackling giggles, guttural growls, and Irish brogues, among other distinctive voicings. His portrayal of Skulduggery, who speaks with a rolling resonance, embodies the classic Holmesian detective." (Booklist)

    Story
    "Bogart/Wizard/Skelton"

    This story is so quirky and fun, the characters are so memorable. It's so many things at once without feeling like a rip off of anything. This series needs a TV show.

    "A favorite "go to book" - Landy/Degas masterpiece!"

    A perfect blend of mystery/intrigue, action/adventure and clever humor with a story line that you just don't want to end! I recommend this book be added to all personal libraries!

    "An absolutely amazing story."

    This book was the start of my love for the skulduggery pleasant series. I bought all the books and read them all at least twice. So I bought it off here just to here someone else read it and I just have to say that it was just amazing. The only downer was the music between chapters.

    Story
    "LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!"
    What made the experience of listening to Skulduggery Pleasant the most enjoyable?

    Skulduggery Pleasant has been a favorite of mine since middle school and I love Rupert Degas's voices for every one of the characters!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Skulduggery is my favorite! He's just so sarcastic and cool.


    Which character – as performed by Rupert Degas – was your favorite?

    I really like how sinister Rupert Degas made Serpine sound. Nothing like how he sounded in my head when I was reading, but this version is so much better!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I've listened to this book several times in one sitting- great for when I'm working!

    Story
    "Love"

    I love this series so much, the thing that bugs me is Rupert Degas does voices that I do not agree with. He makes Ghastly sound like an old man when he is about 30 years old!
    I recommend this book to most readers, adults and children alike.

    "Proceed with caution"
    What disappointed you about Skulduggery Pleasant?

    A poorly written book with an amazing concept that sincerely fails the urban fantasy genre. To make matters worse, there are irritating musical interludes between each chapter that jar you out of the story.
