Publisher's Summary

Following the shocking revelations of DARK DAYS, get ready for the fifth instalment of the bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series – guaranteed to contain at least 40% humour, 50% action, and 100% thrills…
"The blonde girl with the black lips turned to Valkyrie. 'We know,' she said. 'We've seen the future. We know you're going to kill the world…'"
Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back – just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down…While they struggle to protect a known killer from an unstoppable assassin, Valkyrie is on a secret mission of her own. This quest, to prevent her dark and murderous destiny, threatens to take her to the brink of death and beyond. And then the body-snatching Remnants get loose, thousands of twisted souls who possess the living like puppets, and they begin their search for a being powerful enough to lead them. Facing such insurmountable odds, Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Ghastly and Tanith can trust no one. Not even each other…

A different narrator

While the narration was good, it was rather difficult to get used to a different narrator once you've gotten used to another one for the last 4 books. the voices for each character had gotten familiar but with this book I had to memorize each voice anew. Brian Bowles did, however, do a good job on his narration and picking up such a large project in the middle of it.

Excellent book spoiled by the new narrator

This book, like the others in the series was just sooo good. However, it was spoiled by the new narrator, he just can't compare with the previous one and the characters were much more one-dimesional as a result. If this was the first book I'd heard I would think again about getting the next one. The plot and everything was still just excellent and the best in the genre by far in my opinion, but once you've heard characters come to life in Rupert Degas's melodic tones, no one can even come near to him and the new narrator didn't even nearly meet the mark....such a shame and it really spolied it for me....

Excellent Book, Shame about the narrator

I love the Skulduggery series of books, they are entertaining, funny and a great listen. I have eagerly awaited the listen of each book, including this one but was disappointed by one major flaw. The Narrator. Rupert Degas was brilliant in all the other books, he got every voice spot on and everything sounded, right. This book however, although still well written, is seriously lacking purely due to its new voice. He doesn't get it, Skulduggery is no longer a stand out character and Valkyrie doesn't have the sparkle in her tone anymore. I would still recommend this purely for the book in it's own right but i'm afraid it's spoiled by the new narrator.
