Rupert Degas conveys the suspense in the third adventure of Skulduggery Pleasant. Stymied by multiple murders in his magical community, Skulduggery and his friend Valkyrie race the clock to foil a dangerous cabal. 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. As the story moves around the Emerald Isle, listeners will appreciate being able to identify each character with ease. 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.
