Publisher's Summary

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

Skulduggery and Valkyrie are back in the tenth 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 audiobooks as well as an all-new cast, including new teen co-star 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.'

Good to get the gang back

A good new beginning but unfortunately the narration performance is lacking, especially when compared to the previous 9 books.

Great story shame about the narrater

I so love Derek Landy’s work, he is a fantastic writer and has an amazing sense of humour. Especially in the skullduggery pleasant books. The first few books brought to life by Rupert degas are amazing, a little hiccup with Brian Bowles on book 5 but later Stephen hogan put his own fantastic stamp the last few books. I found Caroline Lenin’s reading, just that, a reading. Unlike Degas and Hogan who preformed each book. Caroline Lennon does stellar work but in my opinion she was not the wright fit for this book. I am extremely disappointed I downloaded it. I would dearly love if they redo with Stephen Hogan or better again Rupert Degas. The book it’s is fantastic, but I say buy a hard copy and read it yourself because this version does not do it justice. I’m sorry to be negative this is just my opinion.

Brilliant but hollow return

Brilliant story, everything I love about this world has been brought to life again.
But I deeply missed the deep rich tones of Stephen hogan, it just wasn't the same.
Caroline isn't a terrible narrator but I struggled to tell the difference between the characters.
If Stephen or a similar narrator could come back and redo this story it would be amazing

Reader not very good in my opinion

It's hard to tell the difference between the characters as she seems to just use her normal voice for a lot of them or only changes them slightly... guy or girl... they sound the same.

The Narration..

I am a huge fan of skulduggery pleasant and derek landy, have been since I was a kid, but I found this audiobook difficult to get through with the new narrator even though it's such a good book, really missing Stephen hogan

Great story, not a fan of the reader

I loved the story, and I'm very happy that Mr Pleasant is returning.
Unfortunately the reader of this book made it very hard to enjoy, maybe half as much as I would otherwise.
Hopefully we'll get a return of the previous readers for the next books!

The story was awesome, like all the other books, but the delivery was horrible. Sounds like they hired the first Irish person they saw.

Great Dialogues as usual, terrible Narration

Terrible narration (can we please have Stephen Horgan back?). Not Landy's best but still thoroughly enjoyable. Great dialogues as usual.

The Narrator ruins this story!

I have really enjoyed this series from the beginning right up to this book. derek Landy writes a brilliant fantasy thriller filled with funny dialog, engaging characters and plot twists designed to keep you on the edge of your seat. These books rivaled the Harry Potter series for me. However switching from a male narrator for the past 9 books to a female one for this one was a huge mistake. She doesn't seem to invision Skullduggery at all, and the past narrators have done an incredible job with the masses of characters Landy has to offer. I was really disappointed with the narration choice from the beginning right up to the end of this book.

I would definitely consider rebuying it if it was rerecorded with a narrator who can invision this story properly. The only reason I am not returning it is that it would incomplete my series.

I really hope Derek Landy had no say whatsoever in the choice of narrator, otherwise he is certainly going to lose some of my respect.

Not a fan of the narrator

The Story was great, Derek Land did a great job as always but it is seriously let down by the narration.

I loved Rupert Degas who read the first few book, to me he was the voice Skulduggery Pleasant and he was able to bring to the characters to life. I wasn't pleased when he was replaced by Brain Bowels and later Stephen Hogan but they both did a good job. Brian's style was very similar to Rupert and and Stephen had made the characters his own by the end of the series.

I found listening to this book very hard going, I found the character very flat with little to separate them vocally. It felt very much like a generic reading. Caroline Lennon didn't seem invested in story or characters what so ever. A good narrator pulls you in and while listen to them you can see and hear the characters, picture what is going and I didn't get that with this book. I really hope this book is re-recorded and that someone else is brought in for future stories.

Terrible Narrator

Any additional comments?

The Narrator makes it difficult to tell one character from the next, which can make it incredibly difficult to tell who is who in sections of dialogue. Very Annoying.

Epic Story, Poor Narration

Would you try another book written by Derek Landy or narrated by Caroline Lennon?

This book is another Derek Landy master piece and I am really looking forward to the next one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Resurrection?

This book had me on the edge of my seat constantly and at times was terrified to find out what happened next.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I am really sad that they used a different narrator as Stephen Hogan was brilliant. This narrator was not good at male voices and was very difficult at times to know who was speaking as many of the voices sounded the same. I hope they employ Stephen Hogan to narrate the future books.

Any additional comments?

The characterization was perfect and the story was epic.

Narrator

PLEASEEEE bring back Stephen Hogan!!! Skulduggery pleasant does not feel the same without him! Caroline makes all the characters sound the same I find it frustrating to listen to. Stephen Hogans Skullduggery however is sexy. PLEASE bring him back.

Great book but Bad reader

By all means! The story is great, really another one of Landy’s greatest achievements. This female voice actor is just ruined it for me. The men who voiced this books, 10/10 voice preforming. This women has just made me want to stop listening to the series in general.

STORY was good but did not like narrater

What made the experience of listening to Resurrection the most enjoyable?

the story that rounded off most of the loose ends

What other book might you compare Resurrection to, and why?

I am not sure

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Lennon?

I would choose Rupert Degas (he narrates book 1-4)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when Valkyrie almost gets killed

I actually really liked Caroline Lennon's narration. The previous narrators were awesome too but It's kind of fun to have a woman narrating the second part of the series.
