The Foundling: Monster Blood Tattoo – D.M. Cornish

foundling1

This inventive debut novel follows Rossamünd Bookchild, a foundling boy saddled with an unfortunate name, as he ventures out from his childhood home at the orphanage into the wide world of the Half-Continent, a Georgian-esque society where humans wage an unending battle against the shadowy monsters of the wilds. During his journey from boy to man, Rossamünd has his share of adventures, encounters a variety of colorful characters, and learns that the world is more complex and perilous than he was raised to believe.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s different and extremely interesting. I will warn you though, it’s not small, and some of the language can be tough, but if you just follow the story it will suck you in! – Jessica, Teen Librarian
