They say there's a hold up on the downloads today, but will have it up later.
you can check in occasionally to see if they are available yet here:
On the other hand, if you missed last weeks downloads, they appear to still be available.

I'm not easily impressed, but the audiobook of Skulduggery Pleasant has really impressed me. I'm only partway through it so I can't yet give it a full review, but so far the story line, characterizations, writing, and audiobook reading have been exemplary. Well, okay, in the opening chapter there are a few cardboard cut-out characters, but they quickly fade out of the picture.
I listen to my audiobooks when commuting, and usually I have no problem if I miss a sentence or two while changing lanes or dealing with other driverly details. But Skulduggery Pleasant is so tightly-written that there are few sentences or even words that can safely be missed. I'm having to back up the reading quite a bit in order to keep up.
Officially it's a YA Urban Fantasy, but like a lot of YA work, it also appeals to grown-ups.
