Don't Open The Box!

I used to have all the Skullduggery first edition hardbacks and the spin off and the other WBD short but, on being deeply disappointed by the cop-out climax, gave them all away to a charity shop.

Which makes the timeline a little confusing for me. Valkyrie is 16 here and a character that died is referenced as if still alive; so, no clue what's going on there...

BUT

It was still a fun, funny, movie length short, well paced and compelling.

Also, not used to hearing the Irish accent so am delighted to have chosen the Audible format. The narrator did a fantastic job!

Now am tempted to maybe refresh self on the previous Skullduggery books and the ones I missed. From the library though, that'll do.

All in all, it was great to be back, saving the world alongside Valkyrie and the best dressed skeleton dude in the history of ever.

Recommend it to fans and to the curious of any age (I'm an adult) and gender. You don't need a synopsis - just dive in!

Funny and Fast

This was a terrific little story that made me laugh a lot when Skulduggery went in disguise. There’s a bit of adventure and fighting with some awesome moves, plus a nice little moral message at the end. Feels good. Loved it. Great title too, as usual. The narrator of this audiobook was great. I do recommend.
