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.

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)

    "Loved it"

    I think I would love it even more if skulduggery was not a skeleton... but I think I am coming to terms with it... not sure what kind of magic allows a skeleton to come back to life... sounds dark. I am hooked and definitely getting next book in series.

    Story
    "Extraordinary. Hilarious. My kids & I - all 3 rapt"
    Where does Skulduggery Pleasant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a huge hit. My kids and I have listened to many Riordan series books on our commutes and love those for the combination of wit, humor and history. This book is closer to pure fantasy but was an instant flaming success. My kids are 12 (boy) and 8 (girl) and I'm (ahem) 40. This writer is awesome and the performer is truly that, so it was all of our favorite by the end of the first chapter.


    What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?

    This man. His delivery is so perfect I can't even try to describe it. Voices are distinct, character is portrayed... I don't know anything about acting, but it seems that one could learn everything about dramatic reading from listening to Rupert Degas reading this book.
    Also, his Irish accent gave this audiobook a sense of authenticity that I wouldn't have been aware that it needed. And the voice - in total, a superfluous pleasure.

    "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.
