There is no escape from destiny . . . is there?

'Riveting! Like its reincarnated heroes, I was drawn again and again to David Hair's gripping, blood-soaked tale' - Chris Bradford, author of Young Samurai

For four young men and women trapped in its story-cycle, the Ramayana is not just a legend: it is their fate!

In every life they have ever lived, Vikram, Amanjit, Rasita and Deepika have been persecuted and killed by Ravindra on his quest to reincarnate as Ravana, the Demon-King. Now Ravindra has captured Rasita, and demonic beings are rallying to his cause. His triumph is looking certain.

Vikram and Amanjit must rescue Rasita - but in every past life, Vikram has died at Ravindra's hands.

This time, failure is not an option. This time, if Ravindra wins, it will be for ever.

'David Hair hasn't just broken the mould. He's completely shattered it' - Bibliosanctum

Ages-old mysteries must be uncovered and forgotten powers regained as the fight to defeat Ravindra moves toward the final, heart-stopping climax and a finalé that is as startling as it is electrifying.

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.

The Pyre was genuinely dark and unsettling . . . The story-telling within the novel is outstanding—Historical Novel Society

A fantastically written tale . . . An amazing story set in a magnificent background, it had me hooked from the very first page. The last half of the book literally had me on the edge of my chair, rooting for the characters in both timelines and wondering how the history would unfold and if it would repeat itself
