Format: Hardcover
The third title in the Monster Blood Tattoo series and perhaps the most gripping one yet, as our hero, Rosamund is now the Factotum of the most famous monster hunter. It's gripping, it's definitely a title that will keep the readers entertained as we share the dangers, the thrills and above all else the struggle to keep Rosamund out of the hands of those who would do him harm.

DM has definitely done the series proud and with taking it in a new direction the next title will be something even more special. With a whole host of superb supporting cast members backed up with great prose, some top notch illustrations and a comprehensive guide you really are in for a treat. The only real downside to the this title is that you have to read the rest of the series to fully understand it even though there's a great glossary on hand otherwise you won't get the full flavour of this complicated world that will put a number of adult titles to shame. Seriously good fantasy and one that as an adult I can appreciate as well as savour. Great stuff.

This is the final in the trilogy, Monster Blood Tattoo, where the questions are answered. Dave Cornish has a completely different way of thinking. I've not ready anything else like this and I really enjoyed it. The only problem I had with it was that it was too detailed in terms of this alternate world our hero inhabits. Some words that already mean something to me were used to describe something entirely different and there were just too many of them. There was a guide at the back but because I was reading on kindle, I couldn't check them out easily. However, it was a great idea for a story and a great book... Loved it. I would read other books by this author.

The final instalment of the Monster Blood Tattoo series lives up to the standard set by the previous two books. It promises twists on every corner backed up by gripping descriptions of the alien and macabre world Cornish has created. The struggle faced by the protagonist (Rossamünd Bookchild) is both relatable and other-worldly. With this story Cornish has managed to create a fantasy epic which reflects some strong truths about human nature and it is a testament to his skill as a writer.
