    Set in the realm of the Half-Continent, a land of tri-corner hats and flintlock pistols, the Monster Blood Tattoo trilogy presents a world of predatory monsters, chemical potions, and surgically altered people. Foundling begins the journey of Rossamund, a boy with a girl's name, who is about to begin a dangerous life in the service of the Emperor. What starts as a simple journey is threatened by encounters with monsters - and people, who may be worse.

    Heather says: "Foundling - an adventure tale"

    What did you love best about Foundling?

    Very interesting story with great detail on this fantasy world. Reminds me of Harry Potter and Charles Dickens with a little Master and Commander thrown in!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rossamund!


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrater is AWESOME! I thought they had gotten a cast of actors to do this book when I first started listening; but then I realized that this narrater was actually doing all the different characters himself! Humphrey Bower has this wonderful British accent and presents an amazing range of different accents throughout the book. He really makes the story come alive. Would love to read more books with this narrator, hope Audible will offer more books with Humphrey Bower as narrator.

    Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

    "Wonderful story and narrater is amazing!"
