Publisher's Summary

Much-anticipated sequel to Foundling.Simultaneous release with the print edition, superbly narrated by the award-winning Humphrey Bower.Gripping fantasy adventure with larger-than-life characters and a world mapped in fascinating detail.The Half-Continent is becoming even more unsafe - monster attacks are on the rise, and every far-flung village or town is calling for help to fight them. Into this dangerous landscape the lamplighters must venture daily, keeping the roads safely lit for travellers. It is not a job for the faint-hearted, and every week there are reports of new theroscades. Foundling Rossamünd Bookchild, sworn into the Emperor's Service as a prentice lamplighter, is finding his training at Winstermill Fortress difficult and lonely. His life is further complicated by the arrival of a young wit, determined to spite her famous mother by becoming a lowly lantern-stick. As Rossamünd begins to make new friends in this sinister world, he also seems to make more enemies, finding himself pushed towards a terrible destiny, a fate beyond anything he could ever have imagined.

One of the best.

Nothing more to say. This is another "kids" book that adults will love. If you read the first book and enjoyed it, I can fully recommend this audio version of the second. Massive detail and yet not enough as well - leaves you wanting more. Excellent narration that really suited the style of the story.
