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.
