Simultaneous release with the print edition, superbly narrated by the award-winning Humphrey Bower.
Gripping fantasy adventure with larger-than-life characters and a world mapped in fascinating detail.
The Half-Continent is becoming even more unsafe - monster attacks are on the rise, and every far-flung village or town is calling for help to fight them. Into this dangerous landscape the lamplighters must venture daily, keeping the roads safely lit for travellers. It is not a job for the faint-hearted, and every week there are reports of new theroscades. Foundling Rossamünd Bookchild, sworn into the Emperor's Service as a prentice lamplighter, is finding his training at Winstermill Fortress difficult and lonely. His life is further complicated by the arrival of a young wit, determined to spite her famous mother by becoming a lowly lantern-stick. As Rossamünd begins to make new friends in this sinister world, he also seems to make more enemies, finding himself pushed towards a terrible destiny, a fate beyond anything he could ever have imagined.

Nothing more to say. This is another "kids" book that adults will love. If you read the first book and enjoyed it, I can fully recommend this audio version of the second. Massive detail and yet not enough as well - leaves you wanting more. Excellent narration that really suited the style of the story.
