3rd book and the worm is firmly hooked!

Great narrator.

Story is great, easy to grasp without anything being obvious what's to happen next.

A great read for all ages.

One of the children in my class urged me to read the Skulduggery Pleasant books and after much persuading I gave in and my only regret is that I only get two credits a month!



This is the third in the series and sees a continuation of the arc begun in book one. We see all of the characters evolve and the writing remains engaging and surprising in some cases. I was convinced I knew who the villain was only to be surprised by the final reveal.



The narration is superb.

Reignited interest in Series

Bought this for son who had enjoyed reading first, but drifted off half way through second book. He loved it and has now read the two subsequent books himself!

Fantastic fun!

The series gets better and better! Brilliantly read by Rupert Degas, this is one of the best kids series around though it's equally excellent for us adults.

Brilliant

Perfect team - author narrator & the production crew creating an atmospheric immersive story, really making it come to life - just wish these books were longer.

Great story and Rupert Degas is just a fab reader!

This is the second Skullduggery I've listened to by the same reader and it didn't disappoint. I love the dry humorous way it's written. Rupert really makes it a pleasure to listen to. Already have the 3rd one ready. :)

book 3 every book get better and better

Book 3 was amazing with each chapter ending on a cliffhanger which enticed you to read the next chapter, causing it to slowly become an addiction. This has got me excited for book for as I can't wait for the twists and turns in the plot.
