Publisher's Summary

With Serpine dead, the world is safe once more. At least, that's what Valkyrie and Skulduggery think, until the notorious Baron Vengeous makes a bloody escape from prison, and dead bodies and vampires start showing up all over Ireland.With Baron Vengeous after the deadly armour of Lord Vile, and pretty much everyone out to kill Valkyrie, the daring detective duo face their biggest challenge yet. But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is just a little closer to home...?


What the Critics Say

"This production is exactly the reason young adult fantasy fare can work so well as audio entertainment. Narrator Rupert Degas...does a bang-up job here....This is dark comic fantasy, and Degass timing and complete grasp of the main character's personality couldnt be better." (AudioFile)

Good journey fodder

Both sons enjoying this series. Good mixture of slightly scary and decent plot. Is leading them back into reading the books too.

It never occured to me that Skullduggery would be Irish but this works so well and makes the humour so much funnier. Excellent narration & I have already downloaded the next two books in the series.
