AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rossamund has exchanged Winstermill and the dangerous life of a lamplighter for Brandenbrass and an even more dangerous life as factotum to the aristocratic monsterslayer, Europe. Fear and self-doubt must wait, however, as he plunges headlong into the fulgar's day-to-day life of political manoeuvring, high-society parties and well-paid monsterhunting. But whispers and rumours about her new factotum place Europe herself in danger, and now Rossamund and the Branden Rose will face the ultimate battle against their enemies, the black-hearted schemers who would destroy them both.' (Trove record)

Notes

  • Steampunk note: The pseudo-Victorian secondary world of this novel is dominated by the technological aesthetic of steampunk, though the technologies themselves are actually based more on biology than steam technology, lending the work an affinity with the biopunk subgenre.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording.

Affiliation Notes

  • This work is affiliated with the AustLit subset Asian-Australian Children's Literature and Publishing because it has been translated into Chinese.
