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)

Not for the deep thinker, science fantasy fun

What did you like best about Playing with Fire? What did you like least?

Well read and moved along at a good pace. Character descriptions painted a clear picture in the head.

What will your next listen be?

Probably I Claudius, fancy a bit of Roman drama

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narrator was very good, one of the books strengths

Could you see Playing with Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No, unless it was a cartoon. Would not get a large enough following.

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.
