Set in the world of the Half-Continent - a land of tri-corner hats and flintlock pistols - the Monster Blood Tattoo trilogy is a world of predatory monsters, chemical potions and surgically altered people. Foundling begins the journey of Rossamund, a boy with a girl's name, who is just about to begin a dangerous life in the service of the Emperor. What starts as a simple journey is threatened by encounters with monsters - and people, who may be worse. Learning who to trust and who to fear is neither easy nor without its perils, and Rossamund must choose his path carefully.

"Enough secrets, promises, and mystery to create impatient demand for part two." (Booklist (starred review))
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
I was thrilled to find this book available and so well spoken by Humphrey Bower. Truely exciting fantasy. It is a joy to be wrapped up in the language that Cornish has created, a wonderfully realised world. (Not long now till Book 3 is out, Huzzah!!)
