Monster Blood Tattoo 3: Factotum by D. M Cornish
The first thing that I must convey is, Mr. Cornish has created a most detailed and engrossing world that one wills to be lost in for hours on ends. His writing, the story, the characters, the setting nears perfection and these books CAN be upheld as one of the best fantasy fiction around. Way ahead of Harry Potter or Eragon or Pendragon.

I write this review only for this final book after reading the all ten books. My contention with this series is, it remains average, safe and simple. It is neither memorable or establishes it self as a classic, it is neither unique nor at the same time too much of a cliché. However, as mentioned beforehand its a 'safe' and doesn't live up to what it could be. The story for the past seven or six books has been the same, good guys join up, bad guy outnumbers them, good guys plan and plan, execute PERFECTLY and viola end of book 4,5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. This repetition is consistent with a lot of riding/traveling in the first part of the book, followed by possible investigation,… Read more
