Publisher's Summary

A brilliant, hilarious one-off novel in the Skulduggery Pleasant universe, from number-one best-selling author Derek Landy.

This time, the bad guys take the stage. Tanith Low, now possessed by a remnant, recruits a gang of villains – many of whom will be familiar from previous Skulduggery adventures – in order to track down and steal the four God-Killer level weapons that could hurt Darquesse when she eventually emerges. Also on the trail of the weapons is a secret group of Sanctuary sorcerers, and doing his best to keep up and keep Tanith alive is one Mister Ghastly Bespoke.

When the villains around her are lying and scheming and plotting, Tanith needs to stay two steps ahead of her teammates and her enemies. After all, she's got her own double-crosses to plan – and she’s a villain herself…

Horrible narration

I couldn’t listen to it all due to the reader, I couldn’t tune her out enough to take in the story. I dreaded listening but find it hard to give up on a book.

Horrible Reader Ruins Book

This is a short story that focuses on Tanith Low and it advances the Skullduggery Pleasant series. It should be read prior to listening to Last Stand of Dead Men but not listened to as an audio book as the reader, not voice actor, does not do any of the voices adequately. Imagine a women with a high voice and a British accent doing Billy-Ray Sanguine’s Texas accent and sounding like a southern belle. There is good humour in this story, but reader ruins it.
