I don't like monsters, I don't like blood, and I definitely don't like tattoos, but I really enjoyed this book. The Monster Blood Tattoo series is high fantasy at its best. Awesome world building, awesome characters, and a staggering story-line...eventually. The first book is about poor little Rossamund Bookchild, a boy with a girl's name, who was abandoned as a child and given a place at the Bookchild orphanage. Once he comes of age, he is sent out into the world to be trained as a lamplighter. Book one recounts his journey from the orphanage to his apprenticeship. You'd be surprised what can happen on the road in this world--the people he meets, the friends and enemies he makes, the places he goes, and the things he learns about himself. Very intense, but also loads of fun! Oh, and the author illustrates the book himself, which, to me, is all kinds of awesome. Very unique and intriguing story with unique and intriguing illustrations.
