Publisher's Summary

Rossamnd Bookchild stands accused of not truly being a human at all, but of being a monster. Even the protection of Europe, the Branden Rosethe most feared and renowned monster-hunter in all the Half-Continent might not be enough to save him. Powerful forces move against them both, intent on capturing Rossamnd whose existence some believe may hold the secret to perpetual youth.

I have good news!

I fell in love with the first book in this trilogy, Foundling in 2008. Then shortly after Lamplighter. I was very much in awe of the depth, detail and lore that DM Cornish had created in his world. I loved the characters because they were none of them perfect yet very endearing, likable and admirable. When this final book was released, and I learned that it was the conclusion to a trilogy I was so upset. I would listen to the story up until about the 4th chapter from the end and then I would start it again at chapter 1, because I DID NOT WANT IT TO END. I eventually did listen to the entire story and have since then listened to all three books at least 4 dozen times. Sometime in 2011 or so I became fb friends with DM Cornish and he is so very humble and kind and engages with his readers and fans quite often. I harassed him a bit about a week back and said that Rossamünd deserved so MUCH more than just 3 books. He replied shortly after and said that he agreed and that he had another book on the drawing board.
So, if you are already a loving fan of these books that DM wrote and for which he created the most detailed and unique world then YAY US...we are going to get to go on another adventure with Rossamünd soon! If you have not read/listened to the Trilogy yet then I envy you because you get to experience it for the first time. I RARELY write reviews for ANYTHING. This series, the characters, the beautiful writing with some of the most creative and subtle metaphors and the absolutely outstanding narration by Humphrey Bower rank these books at the very top of my list. That's saying something as I have over 1k titles on Audible alone.
One note, people think this is a children's book series, and while I very much agree that children over the age of 8 or 9 will have their imaginations set ablaze when they listen to this, there is some violence that may not be appropriate for the little ones.

As good as the Harry Potter books

Dont be fooled by this series this is no childs tale. Horrors both man and beast run through these pages and you will soar with telling of the tale of young Rosamund Bookchild. Expertly illustrated by the author himself (not that you can see this in an audio book) open your eyes and mind to world of the Monster blood tattoo series you wont be disappointed.
