Description

Rossamund Bookchild has successfully negotiated the treacherous route to High Vesting. But even within the sturdy walls of the great city he is far from safe. For the path to becoming a Lamplighter is fraught with dangers - and not just from the dread monsters who lurk in the wilds. Rossamund will need all his wits to survive his training. And he must watch his back too, for enemies from his past are never far behind. 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.show more

Review quote

"A meticulously imagined place, full of echoes of literary luminaries from Dickens to Patrick O'Brian and bristling with joyous erudition. Here be not just monsters but muskets and flintlocks, haubardiers and habilistics, florins and factotums amd mighty vessels of war" Washington Post "I plunged instantly into a unique fantasy world just beyond the familiar, where no one is fully good, where the villains are real and terrifying, and I felt constantly at the edge of a gasp. I hope readers will love this as much as I do" -- Tamora Pierce "Depth and intricacy reminiscent of the work of J.R.R. Tolkien or Robert Jordan" School Library Journal "A remarkable new world, complete in every detail and totally convincing. Even more, he has peopled this amazing world with equally amazing characters, startling turns of events, constant excitement and a rich palette of deeply felt emotions" -- Lloyd Alexandershow more
