Read full description of the books:
Dobrodružství v zemi hrozivých bojovníků pokračuje! Rosamunda se stává lampářským nováčkem v Železné baště. Výcvik je nelehký a hlavně nebezpečný, protože příšery číhají na každém rohu. Ty také na sebe nenechají dlouho čekat a příjezd mladé budoucí lampářky Threnody je spojen s krvavým útokem rohatých bestií. Zpupná Threnody je ale pro Rosamundu spřízněnou duší. V podzemních chodbách pevnosti odhaluje děsivý objev a ten jen utvrdí jeho podezření, že se v nitru pevnosti dějí podivné a nekalé věci. Výcvik nováčků je předčasně ukončen a Rosamundu pošlou do té nejvzdálenější a nejnebezpečnější pevnůstky, kousek od Krvavého močálu. Tam teprve začíná skutečně těžká služba mezi ostřílenými chlapíky, kteří denně čelí nebezpečí. Rosamundu čekají další nelehké zkoušky

Read information about the authorD. M. Cornish (born 1972) is a fantasy author and illustrator from Adelaide, South Australia. His first book is Foundling, the first part of the Monster Blood Tattoo trilogy. The second book named Lamplighter was released in May 2008. The third in the series is yet to be named.
D.M. Cornish was born in time to see the first Star Wars movie. He was five. It made him realize that worlds beyond his own were possible, and he failed to eat his popcorn. Experiences with C.S. Lewis, and later J.R.R. Tolkien, completely convinced him that other worlds existed, and that writers had a key to these worlds. But words were not yet his earliest tools for storytelling. Drawings were.
He spent most of his childhood drawing, as well as most of his teenage and adult years as well. And by age eleven he had made his first book, called "Attack from Mars." It featured Jupitans and lots and lots of drawings of space battles.
He studied illustration at the University of South Australia, where he began to compile a series of notebooks, beginning with #1 in 1993. He had read Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast novels, The Iliad, and Paul Gallico's Love of Seven Dolls. Classical ideas as well as the great desire to continue what Mervyn Peake had begun but not finished led him to delineate his own world. Hermann Hesse, Kafka and other writers convinced him there were ways to be fantastical without conforming to the generally accepted notions of fantasy. Over the next ten years he filled 23 journals with his pictures, definitions, ideas and histories of his world, the Half-Continent.
It was not until 2003 that a chance encounter with a children's publisher gave him an opportunity to develop these ideas further. Learning of his journals, she bullied him into writing a story from his world. Cornish was sent away with the task of delivering 1,000 words the following week and each week thereafter. Abandoning all other paid work, he spent the next two years propped up with one small advance after the other as his publisher tried desperately to keep him from eating his furniture.
