David Hair is the award-winning writer of two young adult fiction series, The Aotearoa and The Return of Ravana (based on the Vedic epic The Ramayana). Mage’s Blood, the first volume of a series called The Moontide Quartet, is Hair’s first work of adult fantasy. In a starred review of Mage’s Blood, Publisher’s Weekly said, “This multilayered beginning to the Moontide Quartet plunges readers into a taut network of intrigue and mystery that tightens with each chapter. 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.”

Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every twelve years the tides sink and the bridge is revealed, its gates open for trade. The Magi are hell-bent on ruling this new world, and for the last two Moontides they have led armies across the bridge on "crusades of conquest." Now, the third Moontide is almost here, and this time the people of the East are ready for a fight…but it is three seemingly ordinary people that will decide the fate of the world.

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “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)

  • “Hair has done a competent—if in places derivative—job of world building, and his characters are of a high order.”

    Booklist

  • “[Mage’s Blood] often recalls Frank Herbert’s Dune novels…Among the payoffs are plenty of cliffhangers, including one that nicely ushers in the next volume—which fans will await eagerly.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “This is an exotic story of dangerous magic and intrigue that kept me turning the pages until late into the night.”

    Lesley Livingston, award-winning author of the Wondrous Strange trilogy
