The Lovereading4Kids comment
Prepared to be scared by this rollercoaster fantasy and the cast of brilliantly conceived and depicted monsters who inhabit it! Orphaned Rossamund must take a trip to the city of High Vesting. It’s a journey fraught with danger and Rossamund has nothing to protect himself with except an almanac and some potions. Will he survive against a cast of smugglers, scourges, scolds and shrewds and, if so, how will he do it?
The Lovereading comment:
Monsters, rogues and wonder abound in this utterly original, fearsomely exciting and beautifully detailed fantasy tale of Rossamund Bookchild, an orphaned boy with a girl’s name who goes on a journey to seek his destiny. The first in a trilogy, it’s stunning in scope and rich in detail, alive with memorable heroes and villains and brimming with new and original science and magic. An author to thrill and captivate and leave the reader desperate for more.

Rossamund has always dreamed of a career in the Navy, fighting monsters and rescuing damsels from 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. But for Rossamund to begin his education, he must first undertake a journey of his own.
