Love. Betray. Fight. Ascend. In the much-anticipated conclusion to The Moontide Quartet, the fate of Urte will be decided on the mighty Leviathan Bridge. Emperor Constant is finally ready to conquer the world. As Alaron and Ramita struggle to recover the key to the Ascendants' magic as well as one of Ramita's infant sons, Queen Cera must fight to take the reins of power and Seth Korion's Lost Legions desperately search for safety while trapped between two massive armies. The time has come for the Rite of Ascendancy to be performed, and for new powers to rise to save - or damn - Urte. The Moontide is ending. 'Modern epic fantasy at its best' - Fantasy Book Critic

About the Author

David Hair, an award-winning writer of fantasy, has been inspired by his travels around the globe. He was born in New Zealand and after spending time in Britain and Europe, he moved to India for several years, which sparked both the Moontide Quartet and the Ravana series. He now lives in Bangkok, Thailand. His epic fantasy sagas The Moontide Quartet and The Sunsurge Quartet, and The Return of Ravana, his retelling of the Indian epic The Ramayana, are all published by Jo Fletcher Books.


Mage's Blood is an immense, complicated, blood-soaked fantasy epic . . . reminiscent of Robert Jordan's excellent Wheel of Time series . . .The scale is similar and impressive, and Hair's ability to bring together multiple plot lines is genuinely impressive. * Fanboy Comics on Mage's Blood * Hair portrays a stark and beautiful world breaking apart, with both good and evil characters desperate to reshape it through magic, war, and treachery. This strong debut should draw in fantasy readers of all stripes * Publishers Weekly on Mage's Blood * Hair's first foray into adult fantasy is similar in scope to George R.R. Martin's 'Ice and Fire' and Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of Time' novels and is sure to please those authors' many fans * Library Journal Starred Review on Mage's Blood * There's a little something for everyone here - conspiracies, political backstabbing, high magic, swordplay, a smattering of romance, and more . . . Recommended for fans of George R.R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, and Patrick Rothfuss * Monster Librarian on Mage's Blood * Fans of Game of Thrones will delight in the existence of this different-yet-similar fantasy series * New Myths on The Moontide Quartet * Makes for an outstanding start to a series which promises to recall epic fantasy's finest. In more ways than one, this book could be huge - an honour I dare say David Hair deserves * on Mage's Blood * 'This is one of those books that is so epic, that gets you so involved and is such an investment in time and emotion, that there is a little sting of regret that the ending had to come at all and you immediately want to go back to the beginning and see how much riper it is second time around * British Fantasy Society on Mage's Blood * Readers of epic fantasy should definitely check out this series. 4.5/5 * Bibliosanctum on The Moontide Quartet * Modern epic fantasy at its best * Fantasy Book Critic on Scarlet Tides * A fantastic epic fantasy series with a great cast, immersive world, and fascinating system of magic that builds to a stunning several-hundred page conclusion in the vein of Steven Erikson . . . Read. This. Series * A Bitter Draft on The Moontide Quartet * The Moontide Quartet has everything I am looking for when I want a truly epic feel . . . proves that fantasy can have a basis in mediaeval ideas and still remember to give a role to women and non-white cultures * Fantasy Review Barn * Hair tells his story with aplomb in clear and concise prose . . . one of the better epic fantasy series first installments I've read in recent years * Staffer's Book Review on Mage's Blood * The author has managed to bring about a mirror to the complex and fascinating historical conflicts that occurred during the middle ages and gives it a drastic mystical kick . . . This is the first volume in a tremendously exciting series and one, which I'll be following with great interest in the next few years * Fantasy Book Critic on Mage's Blood * The sense of chaos, endless politicking between factions and urge by characters to make sense out of events beyond their control is palpable as the pace becomes more and more frantic * on Unholy War *
