Death Bringer, a review

We’re up to the 6th book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series! I was reading these along with the Dead Famous Readalong hosted by Hannah from Ladette M, and they’re all rereads for me which were so much fun as I got to see everyone else’s first time reactions!


Without giving any spoilers, book 6 is where the… alter ego of the SP world starts coming out to play. We get fantastic villain fights, in depth reveals about main characters pasts and their previous lives, and of course the oh so witty banter that the series embodies.

We see so much character growth from Valkyrie, she’s getting older and her viewpoint on this magical world is developing along with her. It’s so interesting to see her change as she ages and Landy does this brilliantly. Especially so considering he was never a teenage girl!

This is the end of the second trilogy, which is how this series spluts down inside of it’s respective seasons, and because of that we do get lot of closure. But we also get a massive cliff-hanger that leaves you desperate for the next book! I remember when I first read this book I had to wait a whole year for book 7. I’m very glad that in this reread the next book is only a month away!

In CAWPILE I gave this book: Characters: 9, Atmosphere: 8, Writing: 8, Plot: 8, Intrigue: 9, Logic: 8, and Enjoyment: 8. Which gives an overall rating of 8.29 which is a solid 4 star read!

I’ve really been enjoying this whole series reread and I can’t believe that, many months after I read this (which was back in July 2021 – I’m still catching up on those reviews) we’re so close to the end!
