Publisher's Summary

The eighth instalment in the biggest, funniest, most thrilling comedy-horror-adventure series in the universe - and the follow-up to 2012’s number-one best seller Kingdom of the Wicked
War has finally come. But it's not a war between good and evil, or light and dark - it's a war between Sanctuaries. For too long, the Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Allies turn to enemies, friends turn to foes, and Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they're going to have any chance at all of maintaining the balance of power and getting to the root of a vast conspiracy that has been years in the making.
But while this war is only beginning, another war rages within Valkyrie herself. Her own dark side, the insanely powerful being known as Darquesse, is on the verge of rising to the surface. And if Valkyrie slips, even for a moment, then Darquesse will burn the world and everyone in it.

Brilliant as usual

Being a great Skulduggery Pleasant fan, I am absolutely addicted to this series and I am agog with anticipation for each subsequent instalment. The "Last Stand of Dead Men" does not disappoint. With his usual ruthlessness, Derek Landy clearly does not appreciate too much attachment to any given character and the book is full of twists and turns. Can't wait for the next one!

Bad voices for narrating

I quite liked this book but something to work on would be more distinguished and different voices. Overall it was Great! Better than having to read it yourself! The last thing is that the narrator needs to pronounce the names right. Such as Darquesse, which is pronounced and Darkese not Darkse. Overall, it was Great!
