Publisher's Summary

The skeleton detective is coming back to life again! It's the 10th triumphant novel in the Skulduggery Pleasant series, and it will rearrange your world.

Skulduggery and Valkyrie are back in the 10th instalment in the best-selling Skulduggery Pleasant series, an incredible and unexpected treat for the legions of fans around the world.

We can't say much, but we can say this: Skulduggery and Valkyrie are going to team up with beloved characters from the first nine books as well as an all-new cast, including new teen costar Omen Darkly, for an adventure that takes the story to truly global proportions while answering questions that go right back to the beginning.

And Derek says this: I was halfway through Last Stand of Dead Men, I think, when I realised that I had more stories to tell. I told myself that if Skulduggery and Valkyrie survived the series, I would leave the option open of returning to their world. There were still secrets I need to reveal, after all, and there were still horrors they had to face. They survived the first series. But they're really going to wish they hadn't.

Great story, disappointing voice

Resurrection was a fun listen with great characters returning and a few new ones. It feels very much like a different world with the main characters changed after the events of the previous series. This is a good thing as character development and changing up the status quo is one of the positives of the Skulduggery series.

However, something has to be said of the audio book's production quality. The first few books had a great narrator with a theme song and musical stingers that played when a chapter ended on a plot twist or cliffhanger. Gradually, they changed narrators and nixed the musical stingers in favor of a single theme that played at the start and end of the book.

Production-wise, Resurrection is the worst of the audio books. There's no themes. Kevin Hely doesn't measure up to the many great narrators before him. While he does a few voices well (like Cadaverous and Leafy), the other voices sound too samey and uncharacteristic of who he's portraying. Often I could not tell the difference between Valkyrie and Skulduggery, which made me have to rewind a few conversations.

While the production isn't a deal-breaker, anyone listening to the series consecutively should steel themselves for this.

I legitimately hated this narration

I adore this series, it's one of my favorites. but I've had such a hard time getting through this audiobook because of the narration. His voices sound basically the same. Valkyrie sounds like a young man, Skulduggery sounds like an apathetically skeezy salesman; the narrator doesn't even try to give him his velvety voice or his wit, ego, or snarkiness. as much as I love listening to these while I'm driving, cleaning, or anything else, I may just choose to buy the books and read them myself if they keep this narrator.

go back to the previous voice actors

I don't like the new voice actors. The previous book's voice actors were far better suited to the characters.

Not for children.

For those with sensibilities. It curses God constantly and holds to no family values. With as fine as a line the first series walked, this book of the second goes over the edge on a grotesque level.
