Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eagerly awaited second book of the critically acclaimed trilogy!

Orphan Rossam√ľnd Bookchild has been sworn into the Empero‛s service¬—his duty is to light the lamps along the Empero‛s highways and protect travelers from the ferocious bogles that live in the wild. But h‛s found it no easier to fit in with the lamplighters than he did with the foundlings¬—always too small and too meek¬—and his loneliness continues no matter how hard he tries to succeed.

But when a haughty young girl, a member of a suspiciously regarded society of all-women teratologists¬— monster hunters¬—is forced upon the lamplighters for training, Rossam√ľnd is no longer the most despised soul around. As Rossam√ľnd begins to make new friends in the dangerous world of the Half-Continent, he also seems to make more enemies, finding himself pushed toward a destiny that he could never have imagined.

Synopsis:

Rossamnd Bookchild is finally becoming a lamplighter. His duty is to light the lamps along the Emperor's highways, and protect travelers from the ferocious bogles. But he still feels like he doesn't fit in. When a young girl joins the lamplighters, Bookchild might no longer be the most despised soul around. Putnam Publishing Group
