Competition closed: five copies of Mage’s Blood!


Competition: Mage’s Blood, a fantasy novel by David Hair
FIVE copies to give away

Mage's Blood

Mage’s Blood by David Hair is published by Quercus, RRP $29.99. Available now.

About Mage’s Blood:

The Moontide Bridge is about to open. The world trembles on the brink of cataclysm…

Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every 12 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.

My review of Mage’s Blood is here.  I highly recommend Mage’s Blood: it’s an epic fantasy with international politics.  David blogged about his inspiration for the Moontide Quartet: these novels will be hot contenders for awards.
