Publisher's Summary

The final shocking, heart-wrenching book in the jaw-droppingly stupendous Skulduggery Pleasant series. Valkerie. Darquesse. Stephanie. The world ain't big enough for the three of them. The end will come.

The War of the Sanctuaries has been won, but it was not without its casualties. Following the loss of Valkyrie Cain, Skulduggery Pleasant must use any and all means to track down and stop Darquesse before she turns the world into a charred, lifeless cinder. And so he draws together a team of soldiers, monster hunters, killers, criminals, and Valkyrie's own murderous reflection. The war may be over, but the final battle is about to begin. And not everyone gets out of here alive.

It was ok

I've enjoyed other books in the series, but this one was really dragged out. Definitely recommend the first three books instead.

Very long, but at the same time way too short . . .

Loved pretty much every minute & very sad when it came to an end. Will miss the book & the series too. Hopefully Derek Landy will grace us with another instalment in the future.

Very good close

For an ending it was very good, it included all the elements it should have with some little surprises too. Not too shabby, not too shabby at all.

Thoroughly enjoyed

I could not stop listening to these books. Loved the characters and was always "pleasantly" ;) surprised by the plot twists.

I don't know what to do with my life now...

loose ends

i liked the story but thought that Dannys story was quite loose and a bit awkward.
it took up too much of the book itself

An awesome conclusion to a fantastic book series

The books have just got better and better throughout the series. The narration is fantastic, the pace fast and the story engaging and unpredictable. Loved every minute of it.

Ok. Sorta

I really enjoyed the previous books. This one was way to clever, twist wise, for its own good. That actually made the story less engaging and less cohesive.
