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
There's a lot of cool stuff, ancient civilisations, magic, a heist, personal loss, love, and humour. I enjoyed this so much
A fast-paced, entertaining read, set within a world that I want to explore more of
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
Hair fills the journey with enough internal and external threats that the pace never feels slow . . . an entertaining novel
A cracking fantasy adventure!
The plot is unique, surprises showing themselves at every turn. For those loving an epic fantasy, with plenty of bare-fisted combat, this book is for you
The world-building is rich and seamlessly embedded into the story [and] David Hair delivered in plot just as well . . . I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a story full of plot twists and a high-tension struggle for survival!
David's world-building is exquisite. Map's Edge is the kind of fast-paced, fun read that mixes up the best of what epic fantasy has to offer. David has once again created an endearing bunch of toughies, up against towering odds stacked up, amongst them, bringing in myriad dangers caused by the vagaries of Mother Nature and traitorous human factions. This is an adventure set in a well-realised world filled with magic and wonders, about an impossible journey undertaken by a bunch of renegades, stirring up the embers of a revolution. If you like your fantasy infused with magic, explosive action and rogue, flawed heroes, Map's Edge, the first instalment in an exciting new series by David Hair, definitely fits the bill. Recommended!
