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.
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 ReviewsSo epic, that it 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 - British Fantasy Society on the Moontide QuartetPromises to recall epic fantasy's finest - Tor.com on the Moontide QuartetVivid, dynamic characters and terrific world building . . . Readers of epic fantasy should definitely check out this series - Bibliosanctum on the Moontide QuartetRepresents modern epic fantasy at its best. - Fantasy Book Critic on the Moontide QuartetThe 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 - Upcoming4.me on the Moontide QuartetThe writing is crisp, the characters full of vigour and desires which when they become banded together really gives the story something to focus upon as the bonds grow stronger - Falcata Times on the Moontide QuartetI 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
