(From the publisher):
Rossamund Bookchild stands accused of not truly being a human at all, but of being a monster. Even the protection of Europe, the Branden Rose - the most feared and renowned monster-hunter in all the Half-Continent - might not be enough to save him. Powerful forces move against them both, intent on capturing Rossamund - whose existence some believe may hold the secret to perpetual youth.
