This book picks up where the last book, Lamplighter , left off and continues much in the same vein as the first two in the series. Cornish's incredibly detailed world-building stands with the fantasy greats, and I love the illustrations of characters that accompany the text. This book is unlikely to appeal to anyone who's not already a hardcore fantasy lover, but there's lots to enjoy here. Pretty intense action, and strong character development. I particularly liked the deepening relationship between Rossamund, the protagonist, and his stern and aloof mistress, Europe. My only complaint was that I couldn't remember all the invented words from the first two books and Cornish has created so many that many words were not listed in the glossary.
