Annotation:
The orphaned Rossamund, a boy with an unfortunately feminine name, lives in the fantastical Half-Continent, a place where people and monsters are constantly at war. Those who manage to kill the evil beasts are decorated with bloody tattoos. When Rossamund must travel for the Emperor, he encounters intense adventure and terror. The extensive glossary, maps, and drawings will appeal to young fantasy readers.
