The Hunt Is On!

When strength becomes weakness…
And hope becomes doubt…
As the past collides with the future…hard…

Can Suzanne—Wild Hunt biker chick and one-time member of the fae High Court—
stand strong as her world falls apart? She survived an assault by redcaps, an all-out battle
with the High King’s armies, and her first encounter with roller derby… but how will she fare
against her inner demons? Caught in the midst of a transformation she scarcely realizes
and does not understand, her hard-won convictions are tested as never before.

Suzanne is left with only one question—what if those convictions are wrong?

The truth could mean the difference between saving her sanity and losing her soul…

Based on the story "Seeing Red," related to the stories
“At the Crossroads” and “Within the Guardian Bell”
from the award-winning Bad-Ass Faeries Anthology series.


"Ms. Ackley-McPhail has come back again to the Wild Hunt MC [...] a mix of both mundane and magical people, characters which the author has brought to life stunningly."
4 Stars,
Bibliophilic Book Blog

"An intense story filled with heartbreak and adventure."
L. Jagi Lamplighter, author of the Prospero's Daughter series

"The Redcaps’ Queen" is a suspenseful and richly drawn fantasy as much a tale of the struggle
between loyalty and independence as it is a story about the conflict among hostile factions of the fae vying for the throne. [...] Engaging characters. A great blend of magic, myth, and reality. [...] Well worth reading.
5 Stars,
James Chambers, author of the Corpse Fauna series

Publisher's Weekly 

"The Halfling Court is a well crafted and thought out book. The characters are immensely likable, and I found myself growing quite fond of them [...] a definite must read."

Bitten By Books Review
"It’s the sign of a unique talent to be able to blend two disparate worlds so convincingly and to produce a compelling story [...] an entertaining, page-turning tale."

4 Stars (Must Read), Alyce Wilson, Wild Violet Magazine

"I do not even know where to begin except to say I absolutely adored this book.
I have read a lot of urban fantasy over the years and this is bar none one of the
best books I have had the pleasure to read in this genre."

5 Cups, Regina, Coffee Time Romance

"Danielle Ackley-McPhail brings us an exciting Bad Ass Faerie tale...

"Danielle Ackley-McPhail is a master story teller. Her knowledge of fairies
and the assorted other beings who populate that world is masterful.
This book is another one that surpasses all expectations." 
5 Stars, Linda Pierce, Amazon review

“This book was so great. I loved it to pieces...the entire time I'm reading it,
I'm going "omg, this is totally Lord of the Rings meets Sons of Anarchy."”
Blog Reviewer

"[The Halfling’s Court,] a fast-paced adventure that was a lot of fun to read...
Ackley-McPhail ran with this one and it was a blast...This one is short, fast, and fun, and
worth a read for anyone who is looking for a light tale that doesn’t take itself too seriously."

Luke Forney, Luke Reviews


“The Halfling’s Court: A Bad-Ass Faerie Tale is an exciting novel full of action and adventure that will change your mind about just how bad-ass faeries can be.”
—Professor Crazy,
BSC Review

(Author's Note: The following reviews are on "At the Crossroads",
which appeared in the anthology Bad-Ass Faeries, which is one of the stories
expanded upon to create The Halfling's Court.)

"Tugging at the readers heart and hitting all the right notes, "At The Crossroads"
is just one example of the treasure trove waiting for readers in Bad Ass Faeries."

4 1/2 Mystique Moons, Sarah Gentili, Mystique Books

"This was a very interesting take on faeries as you don’t often hear of faeries being
Harley riding, macho guys. I really liked that aspect of the story and the ending
wasn’t quite what you expected, but in a good way."  

5 Tombstones,
Becky, Bitten by Books

"At The Crossroads" by Danielle Ackley-McPhail is one of the true gems in
Bad-Ass Faeries
. A fine, exciting tale with compelling characters."
