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 who will decide the fate of the world.

"Simply describing one side as always bad and the other as always good and then never deviating from that template doesn’t do it for me. I can only give Mage’s Blood average marks, but if you are into fantasies that are a classic good vs. evil plot with a lot of military action thrown in, then this one may be for you. Sadly, it just wasn’t for me." logo logo

The Moontide Quartet is actually one of my favorite fantasy reads of all time. However... the first book didn't click with me at least of first read. I put it down when done and thought it okay. After the third book came out I decided to pick it up and start reading book 2 / 3. It really picks up after the first book and somehow the later books made the first book more enjoyable. I read through the full 4 books twice now.
