Renegade sorcerer Raythe Vyre went off the edge of the map, seeking riches and redemption . . . but he has found the impossible: a vanished civilisation - and the threat of eternal damnation!

Chasing a dream of wealth and freedom, Raythe Vyre's ragtag caravan of refugees from imperial oppression went off the map, into the frozen wastes of the north. What they found there was beyond all their expectations: Rath Argentium, the legendary city of the long-vanished Aldar, complete with its fabled floating citadel.


Even more unexpectedly, they encountered the Tangato, the remnants of the people who served the Aldar, who are shocked to learn that they're not alone in the world - and hostile to Raythe's interlopers.

What awaits Raythe's people in the haunted castle that floats above them, the lair of the last Aldar King? Everlasting wealth - or eternal damnation?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hair is adept at building characters as well as worlds, and his attention to his female players is welcome in a genre that too often excludes them * Kirkus Reviews *
Massive but focused, every character POV is interesting and none of them seem cliche, the magic and world is great * Brian's Book Blog *
The Moontide Quartet has everything I am looking for when I want a truly epic feel * Fantasy Review Barn *
Represents modern epic fantasy at its best * Fantasy Book Critic on the Moontide Quartet *
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 *
The Moontide Quartet is perhaps the most understated fantasy series currently being written. It features a wide, diverse cast of characters spread out over dual continents. Focusing on a clash of civilisations storyline, David Hair offers a tale that encapsulates epic fantasy to its entirety * Fantasy Book Critic, The Year's Top Ten *

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 on The Moontide Quartet *
A page-turning adventure filled with excitement and intriguing characters. For those loving an epic fantasy with plenty of sword-fights, gun-play, bare-fisted combat and battles between sorcerers, this book's for you * Amazing Stories on Map's Edge *

A fast-paced, entertaining read, set within a world that I want to explore more of

* Beneath A Thousand Skies on Map's Edge *
There's a lot of cool stuff, ancient civilisations, magic, a heist, personal loss, love, and humour. I enjoyed this so much * Alalhambra Book Reviews on Map's Edge *

I thoroughly enjoyed this magic- and quest-filled fantasy. I love the way David Hair writes . . . and the world he has created is a very solid one that holds the story perfectly

* Dawn's Book Reviews on Map's Edge *
Hair is a talented storyteller and Map's Edge a satisfying and fun read, entertaining and rewarding that will sate the appetite of any fantasy lover looking for an epic adventure' * The Tattooed Book Geek on Map's Edge *
I did like [ ] the magic and the world-building, which are tied together in a way I found really interesting * The Fantasy Inn on Map's Edge *
Easy to read with lots of substance, well realised ideas, action and themes * SF Crowsnest on Map's Edge *
David Hair's world-building was excellent and found myself quickly drawn into the narrative * MUSE BOOKS on WORLD'S EDGE *

This has all the elements that made me love Map's Edge and something more . . .

There's a lot going on in this book: plenty of action, treason, intrigues and some gore . . . Highly recommended

* ANNARELLIX on WORLD'S EDGE *
The world [Hair] has built grows out of the pages, and I am left feeling as I was at the end of book one - anticipating the next instalment and eager to see what else will be revealed * THE QUAINT BOOK NOOK on WORLD'S EDGE *
The internal and external politics within the book lead to a lot of infighting intention that has the book ticking along nicely, but there is more. The mystery of Rath Argentium also unfolds above them and there are some great action set pieces. The twists and turns within the camp means that the ally you had one day is gone the next. There is time to allow the story to breathe and for the characters to develop. The final act sets up a very intriguing Book 3 * SF BOOK REVIEWS on WORLD'S EDGE *

“An exciting second book”

(some spoilers for book one in the series - Map's Edge)

I will admit that it took me a while to get back into Hair’s world – I’ve read a lot of books in between Map's Edge and this, and I’d forgotten the... More

“Gripping addition to this outstanding epic fantasy series...”

Firstly, if you haven’t had the pleasure of reading the first book, Map’s Edge, I strongly advise that you do so before tucking into this one. The action picks up right where Map’s Edge left off and you’ll probably be... More
