Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rossamund is now the personal servant - the factotum - of the Branden Rose, the most renowned monster-hunter in all of the Half-Continent. But despite the Rose's power and influence as a Peer of the Empire, powerful forces move against them both, intent on capturing Rossamund and destroying Europe in the process. This final volume of The Foundling's Tale is full of the suspense and lush world building that have made D. M. Cornish one of the most avidly watched modern fantasists.

"Riveting . . . The author laces his rococo but fluent narrative with moral and ethical conundrums, twists both terrible and tongue in cheek, startling revelations about humans and monsters alike and sturdy themes of loyalty, courage and selfrealization" - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Synopsis:

Rossamnd Bookchild stands accused of not truly being a human at all, but of being a monster. Even the protection of Europe, the Branden Rose--the most feared and renowned monster-hunter in all the Half-Continent--might not be enough to save him, in this concluding novel to the epic trilogy.
