Teaser Tuesday #34: The Foundling's Tale Series by Cornish

I was in a slump of books, before starting the Foundling's tale series, by D. M. Cornish. I know I need to pick up things off my Goodreads TBR list (next time!), but somehow that never seems to happen. Luckily, I had time to drop into my library this week, and stumble across this unlikely YA series about monsters and monster slayers.
I say unlikely, because the writing is not your usual YA style. While the story is told from the point of view of a 15 year old boy, the style is slower and fuller than the average YA fantasy.
I've read both Foundling and The Foundling's Tale, Part Two: Lamplighter this week, and am hoping to finish The Foundling's Tale, Part Three: Factotum this week. Here's the teaser:

"Hpmf!" Europe pursed her lips. "What I'd like to know is this: when does adventure stop and violence begin? Answer me that and we'll both be wiser."
Fansitart had been right after all: lahzars were strange and discomfiting folk.

I'm looking forward to adding at least 5 new Follows this week, so let me know if you follow me, or have something new to say about ebooks/authors/publishing/fantasy.  I will be on your site, commenting away!

  3. OH Man, I love the cover and the title to Monster Blood Tattoo - it sounds good, although when the voice doesn't really match the character (i.e., very "literate" words coming from a street tough) it tends to frustrate me, I like the characters to sound as they're described. Know what I mean?

    lol - that is a sereiously creepy cover. :)

  9. Mardel - Europe is no "street tough". She is a monster-slayer, a highborn woman, and very educated :)
    She and Rossamund (the young teen we see as the PoV voice in the series) are both from vastly different backgrounds, though Rossamund is a very polite young man - even being an orphan brought up in an orphanage.

  18. Hi Deepali,

    I have only just ventured out of my comfort zone and started on the contemporary paranormal romance genre, so your urban fantasy books may be too drastic a move just yet, but I'm working my way up to it.

    I do love the cover of your book this week though, very dramatic and atmospheric.
