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. :)

Wow wow wow

This series just gets better and better. Book 3 and its already getting darker. No spoilers here. From the very start of the book it gripped me and it didn't let go until the very end. And what a cliff hanger it ended on. Damn you. I love that it still has an on going back story that unfolds a little bit at a time. This book answered 1 question from the last book, gave us an ending to another bit from the first book BUT it also gave more questions that went unanswered. Damn you again.
As you can tell, I thought the story was brilliant. Even for a teenager book, this had some adult scariness to it.
I love the reader. His voice acting is amazing. The different voices he uses for the characters is beyond great. I forgot about 1 character but as soon as I heard the voice, I knew who they were.
The sound effects that are used in this one was also brilliant. It really added that extra bit to the story. I have to admit that I got a little bit freaked out at one point as the voice change was so well done and scary. Well, it was dark, late and I was on y own that night when I heard that part of the story he he.
Anyway, I cant wait for the next book.....oh look, I've already downloaded it.
You will enjoy this one if you have heard the first 2 books. In fact, this is better than the first 2. This is a book that keeps you gripped till the very end and as I've said, it ends on a mother of all things brilliant cliffhanger that made me want even more.
