Brandon Sanderson meets Joe Abercrombie in this astounding novel of good, evil and magic

The Falcons are knights of the Vestal Order, pledged to use their powers to protect the Empire of Talmont from the cruel Vyr and the carnage they have unleashed upon the world.

When the Falcons take a Vyr alive, they go against the protocols of the Vestal Order and interrogate him. They are horrified to learn, if the Vyr speaks truly, that the Empire’s worst enemy may not be the Vyr . . . but the Vestal Order itself.

Led by the charismatic Romara Challys, the Falcons go rogue, their quest for the truth taking them through burning forests, lost ruins and the uncanny traces of a dying race, desperate to find answers . . . before it’s too late.

But the Vestal Order has no plans to let Challys and her knights succeed in their mission. With the greatest knight in history and an army of fanatics at their heels, the Falcons must evade capture and discover the truth as soon as possible. Because time is running out . . . for everyone.

Hair is adept at building characters as well as worlds
Kirkus on MAGE'S BLOOD
A fast-paced, entertaining read
Beneath A Thousand Skies on MAP'S EDGE
Filled with action and adventure yet was also rich in characterisation and contained a spectacular created world
Muse Books
A riveting, thoughtful fantasy that blends the best of Guy Gavriel Kay and Brandon Sanderson, set in a richly textured landscape where battle-hardened heroes confront their most dangerous enemy: the truth about the nature of their heroism and what the magic they rely upon costs the world around them. Full of nuanced, loveable characters whose complex relationships with each other and with themselves make The Burning Land a compulsively readable adventure not to be missed!
