Quotes & Awards

  • “Rupert Degas conveys the suspense in the third adventure of Skulduggery Pleasant…Degas combines skillful characterizations with nuanced narration in a thrilling performance. He assigns each character a unique identity with accents, pitch, and other vocal personality traits…Degas’s delivery of the narrative is as adroit as his dialogue. He perfectly paces the story’s rise in dramatic tension. As Valkyrie dashes headlong into the final battle, listeners are right by her side, eager for every detail.”


  • “This alternate reality is fully developed…Brisk action, macabre characters, and a generally dark tone will appeal to mystery and horror fans.”


  • “Skulduggery and Valkyrie remain one of the more entertaining duos in recent young adult fiction, tempering their affection for and loyalty to one another with constant, witty jibes…[a] well-written, entertaining series.”


  • “The plot contains many twists and double crosses as dubious characters factor into the mystery…Has enough action to keep casual or new readers interested in what happens next. Kids who have outgrown Lemony Snicket will enjoy the series.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Derek Landy has written a delightful book about a young girl who realizes she’s been a heroine waiting to happen all along, as she claims her rightful status as a warrior mage. The following books in the series are sure to be great reads.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Landy has entirely too much fun strewing his caper with bloody mayhem, often-hilarious dialogue, and an array of distinctive mages and magical creatures…A gifted storyteller, the author will hook readers on the first page and leave them on the last as wrung out as he leaves his teenage protagonist…Rattling good fun.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

    " Some of the fighting and action sequences dragged on too long for my taste, but I can totally appreciate how some young readers eat that stuff up, and the author does a fine job balancing violence, sardonic humor, and creepy world-building. "
