Publisher's Summary

The ninth book in the original, jaw-droppingly stupendous Skulduggery Pleasant series.

Valkyrie. 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....

I CRIED SO MUCH

First of all i adore val and skulduggerys dynamic. The trials they both endure are so obviously getting harder each book- stripping them down, just like Gordon did to his heroes. You’d think after so many books Landry would get bored or run out of ideas, but i just keep gasping, laughing, & crying as this emotional rollercoaster keeps me on the edge of my seat. BRAVO BRAVA

An amazing story with a great narrator

I loved this book!

I’ve been reading the SP series since I was little and they’re just one nonstop thrill ride after another, this book is no exception! I loved it! And in this series the narrators change around A LOT, but I really like the current one.

Great story awful choice for narrator

I love Derek Landy, probably one of the best fantasy writers out there. Imwould even dare to state that Landy’s complex plots and character developments can rival even more adult fantasy-fiction writers (looking at you George R. R. Martin) even though Landy writes for YA/children and for me thankfully doesn’t delve into unnecessary gratuitous details of sex of violent scenes.

That being said.... the narrator chosen to read SP series is kind of like the voice equivalent of nails on chalkboard. He knows where to emphasize on the words, but he doesn’t really know how to differentiate his voice from characters, or reflect any real passion or excitement and life into the characters.

I do plan on keeping this only bc audiobooks are 100% lighter than carrying around the book set (hardcover or paperback) but I plan on still purchasing the entire series of books to simply experience pure relief and escapism into the story, but keep the audio for distracting white noise.
