Rossamnd Bookchild stands accused of not truly being a human at all, but of being a monster. Even the protection of Europe, the Branden Rosethe most feared and renowned monster-hunter in all the Half-Continent might not be enough to save him. Powerful forces move against them both, intent on capturing Rossamnd whose existence some believe may hold the secret to perpetual youth.

Where ever I am that's where I'll be.
Dont be fooled by this series this is no childs tale. Horrors both man and beast run through these pages and you will soar with telling of the tale of young Rosamund Bookchild. Expertly illustrated by the author himself (not that you can see this in an audio book) open your eyes and mind to world of the Monster blood tattoo series you wont be disappointed.
Excellent and well worth the wait - but please tell me there'll be more to follow! I want to know what happens after this stage of life for our little Foundling. I would rank this series of stories right up there with Harry Potter - totally engrossing and completely unique.
An absolute pleasure to listen to. Performance is the best audio book I've ever listened to. I fell in love with the main characters and that's why I would love to see a fourth book. Clever story and mind bending detail.
To me, I find all books easier in the audio edition.
I don't know of any book that can be compared to or rivaled by Factotum.
Mr. Bower brings the characters to life with emotion and speech characteristics that are unique to each individual character.
If I had had the time to listen to it in one sitting, I would have. The story keeps rolling even when it's just day to day happenings within the story. Much like the Harry Potter series.
Factotum: A Foundling's Tale, brings The whole issue of stereotyping into the forefront of your mind. After listening to the story you can't help but wonder who and when you have judged based upon what they looked like or what culture they were born into. Definitely a must listen!!
I have really enjoyed this entire series, including Factotum.
They're part Alice in Wonderland, part grim, monster-ridden horror-story.
Rosamund exploring the Branden Rose's home.
Creeping realization, soft horror.
Listen to the entire series from the beginning!
Happy to finally hear the third installment of this wonderful series.
Sad when it ended. (Which, by the way, ended exactly as it should).
Thankful that I stumbled on to such a great author!
