Publisher's Summary

Featuring monsters, creatures and weird, surgically engineered characters, the work summons up an unusual fantasy world.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.

Fabulous work

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!!)
