Back cover copy

Rossamünd Bookchild has exchanged the dangerous life of a lamplighter for even greater peril: a role as a factotum to Europe, the most feared monster-slayer in all the Half-Continent. As he is plunged into the strange world of political manoeuvring and high-society parties, Rossamünd is about to discover the truth behind his origins: a truth which must remain hidden if he is to survive in a land divided by the conflict between men and monsters. Suddenly, fighting deadly creatures is the last of Rossamünd's worries. Whispers and rumours about the orphaned boy with the girl's name abound, and an accusation is made which places both Rossamünd and Europe in grave danger. Together they must face their enemies in a battle which looks certain to end in tragedy. The eagerly-awaited, stunningly original final volume in the award-winning, internationally acclaimed fantasy trilogy.show more
