Critic Reviews

"Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure." (Jonathan Stroud, author of the Bartimaus Trilogy)
"It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters." (Philip Ardagh, Guardian)
"Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel." (Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series)

Amazing story, superb voice acting, annoying interlude music.

I love this series so far. Everything is on point and the storytelling is magnificent. HOWEVER, the music between each and every chapter is slowly driving me mad. Please take it out so others don’t suffer the way I have.

Incredible!

This is an incredible series! I’m not sure why I never knew about this. The characters are well developed and interesting, the mystery is solid, There is humor & wit, and the action is well written. An added bonus is the fact that this is very much an adult, sophisticated story but without all the language. So I can listen to it in the car with my kids without worrying about what they might hear. This is a must have!
