The eagerly awaited second book of the critically acclaimed trilogy!

Orphan Rossamünd Bookchild has been sworn into the Emperor's service - his duty is to light the lamps along the Emperor's highways and protect travelers from the ferocious bogles that live in the wild. But he'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, Rossamünd is no longer the most despised soul around. As Rossamünd 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.

    " Oh, very nice! This is definitely living up to the promise of the first book, although it's a bit more straightforward; I may be somewhat forgiving because it definitely has a middle-book feel to it. Is the series is actually intended to be a trilogy? I feel like I should have re-read Foundling before launching into this, because it follows quite directly from the first book character-arc-wise as well as time-wise. (There's a massive glossary in the appendix in the back -- seriously, massive: the appendix is a hundred pages long! -- but I generally don't find that sort of thing helpful for characterization.) I may have to buy both of these books and keep them on hand for when the third one comes out, in fact. "

    " Where the first of the series presented a straight tour d' monde - introducing us to the world, its society, and its culture - the second act brings us closer to the central story. In this volume we learn that something is rotten in Denmark and that new allies are rare. (Rossamund makes, by my count, four new friends in all the six-hundred pages of the book.) With those two chunks of exposition off his chest, I look forward to a character-rich third volume. "
