Beschreibung

Rossamund has always dreamed of a career in the Navy, fighting tentacled monsters and rescuing damsels from hook-handed pirates. But fate has chosen him for a different path. He is being sent to train as a Lamplighter - to bring light to the inland roads of the Half-Continent, to shine the way for travellers through lands peopled by outcasts, monsters and worse.But for Rossamund to begin his education, he must first undertake a journey of his own: to the great city of High Vesting. Such a road is not for the faint of heart. Only monster-hunters, leers and the most desperate of brigands dare travel the inland ways unguarded. And all Rossamund carries with him is a battered almanac and a pocketful of cheap potions. It is unlikely to be enough.Stunning in scope and rich in detail, alive with memorable heroes and villains and brimming with new and original science and magics, D.M. Cornish's tale of scolds, scourges, smugglers and shrewds will thrill and captivate, and leave the reader desperate for more.

Vorwort
Monsters, rogues and wonder abound in this utterly original, fearsomely exciting and beautifully detailed fantasy tale of an orphaned boy's journey to seek his destiny.

Autorentext
D.M. Cornish is an acclaimed children's illustrator. He began making notes and drawings for his debut novel FOUNDLING over thirteen years ago and had filled over 28 journals with sketches, ideas and character profiles before the first volume of the MONSTER BLOOD TATTOO trilogy took shape. The book has since sold worldwide. D.M. Cornish is thirty-three and lives in Australia.

Klappentext

BEWARE! Bogles, Revers, Grinnlings and Nickers - all can kill a human quicker than thought!

The vast lands of the Half-Continent bear the scars of centuries of conflict between monsters and men. Only the hardest souls now travel the inland ways: merchants, imperial messengers and - bravest of all - the monster hunters. To be a hunter takes great cunning and extraordinary skill, for the creatures are as deadly as they are varied.

Not that Rosamund Bookchild should worry. The orphaned boy with the girl's name lives safe behind the walls of Madam Opera's Estimable Marine Society for Foundlings. Safe, at least, until the day he is recruited into the service of the Empire by a strange man with perculiar blood-red eyes. This is his story.
