The East and West continents will no longer be separated by an impassable ocean and, from the West, the Third Crusade will march, bringing war and death to the East. In the East, a holy war has been declared, and the people are preparing to fight the West to their last breath.
In this time of turmoil, a failed mage, a market girl and a single mercenary are about to discover that they have the power to change the world. Slow to start, this story has a host of characters that can be a little confusing. Once it gets into the swing, however, it becomes a spider’s web of deception, politics, magic, and all the worst parts of humanity. Carefully constructed and beautifully realised, the book ends with cliff-hangers that are enough to try the hardiest soul and will have readers everywhere desperately wishing away the days until the publication of The Moontide Quartet Book Two.
