I've reviewed FOUNDLING by D.M. Cornish before, and because of the fact that it's the first in a series I decided I was not going to review the rest of the Monster-Blood Tattoo books because it can be incredibly difficult to review sequels without ruining them for the intended audience.
So I won't.
What I will do is say that if you're a fan of JRR Tolkien, George RR Martin or - most of all - Mervyn Peake, you will love FOUNDLING, LAMPLIGHTER and FACTOTUM.
And not just because I told you to.
