'A remarkable series' SFFANZ
She's the Empress of the Fall . . . and her empire is falling apart.
'Represents modern epic fantasy at its best' Fantasy Book Critic
Lyra, Queen of Rondelmar, has fought enemies without and within, dealt with grief and loss, embraced forbidden magic, found her father and borne a child - and still it isn't enough. Her enemies are on the march and the Rondian Empire is collapsing.
But a more dangerous adversary is out there . . . and he is winning.
Ervyn Naxius, amoral genius, has unleashed war on two continents and now laughing as the world of Urte tears itself apart. Kings and priests dance to his tune and his daemonic followers are spreading through the lands, but still he isn't satisfied. His ultimate goal - absolute control of all life - is finally within his reach . . .
Are these the Last Days, when the daemons rise up to claim the world?
From snowbound Mollachia to the beleaguered walls of Norostein, from the poisonous court of the new sultan to the deadly intrigues of Pallas, the omens are clear. Only Lyra and a handful of other heretical dwymancers have grasped the true danger - and they won't give up until every last hope is buried . . .

Empress of the Fall is a sprawling epic fantasy of grandiose proportions . . . with a hearty taste of blood and gore, and plenty of vicious politics * Angela Oliver, author of Fellowship of the Ringtails *
I continue to be impressed by the way Hair takes some very familiar, almost trite, ideas and spins them in a new way. Epic fantasy is not dying, my friends, it is just moving in new directions * Fantasy Review Barn *
One of the best examples, in recent memory, of epic fantasy * Novelnaut on Hearts of Ice *
True epic fantasy. It has everything a fan could want - detailed magic, good characters and evil characters (of both genders) and some in between, a compelling plot, and twists aplenty * A Bitter Draft *
This is a series I cannot recommend enough * C.E. Tracy, author of Chronicles of the Fallen *
Increasingly addictive . . . Adult fantasy lovers who enjoy historical fiction and intricate political plots will love this book. Just don't let yourself be overwhelmed by the first few pages. The rest is epic * A Bohemian Mind at Work *
Beautifully written, a fantastically epic tale spanning two continents, with flashes of the Crusades combined with wonderfully inventive magic. It's grounded in believable characters that I loved and hated, and full of action and heartbreak. And knights flying into battle on winged horses - how cool is that! * JOHN GWYNNE, bestselling author of Malice *
