Looking for more fey-based (or fae or fairy) books? The Portalist has you covered with its newly released list of 10 fantasy series featuring lovable (and often times irascible) fey… and not only did they include THE LAIRD OF DUNCAIRN on the list, but they used its cover as the banner image! All credit to City Owl Press for its great series artwork!
Here are a couple more reviews posted around the inter-web in the past week:
Suspenseful, intriguing and captivating plot with a great prose and a knack for engaging the reader. The book was a one sit read for me. I loved it and would recommend it to everyone. The characters were well developed and deep with an original story.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s unique. The setting is historical, but it’s also an alternate world, where we have both humans and fey. Despite that, it reads a lot like an epic fantasy novel, but with some steampunk elements added in that I really enjoy. I also liked the explenation of the fey lore, and how it was all tied up with the steampunk side of the story and fantasy side.
The writing was excellent, and the details the author added in didn’t just make the time period, but the whole world come to life.
Effie is an amazing character. I loved following her journey and seeing her change and grow. The book also has a lot of side characters which is pretty common for fantasy books, but here they all had distinct personalities, and I liked that. They didn’t feel like cardboard figures, but felt like actual people with feelings and emotions.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels, especially if you like reading about the fey and fey lore.
Well, okay… One review. From a reader with an advanced copy given out by my publisher. I mean, the book’s not even out yet. But hey, it’s my first for THE LAIRD OF DUNCAIRN, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Bookwraiths has posted a great review of, The Roads to Baldairn Motte!
Where other series tend to focus on the “power players” of these types of conflicts, here the three authors decided to take a different approach, shining the spotlight on the more common folk in the tale…
A review of, The Roads to Baldairn Motte, from Beauty in Ruins:
For a heroic fantasy novel written by not one, not two, but three authors – Garrett Calcaterra, Craig Comer, and Ahimsa Kerp – The Roads to Baldairn Motte is a surprisingly well-structured, remarkably cohesive tale that actually benefits from the different voices, without seeming fragmented.
