)-- Dark Quest Books announces the latest title in their Bad-Ass Faerie Tale series. The Redcaps’ Queen is an all-new tale of the Wild Hunt M.C. from Danielle Ackley-McPhail, the author of The Halfling’s Court and The Eternal Cycle series. The book, illustrated by acclaimed artist Ed Coutts, released May 31, with a pre-release launch party held at Balticon, www.balticon.org, a long-standing science fiction convention in the Baltimore region.
Sequel to The Halfling’s Court and born out of the award-winning Bad-Ass Faeries anthologies, The Redcaps’ Queen tells the tale of Suzanne, biker chick and exiled member of the fae High Court.
Suzanne 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.
She 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…
The Redcaps’ Queen is a mash-up of urban fantasy, bikers, steampunk and roller derby, with healthy doses of faerie lore sprinkled throughout. When writing the book, Ackley-McPhail consulted with Debbie Ronca—a.k.a. Molotov Cupcake, of the Jerzey Derby Brigade. The consultant and the team made such an impact with their skill, energy, and sheer force of character that they were written into the novel, responsible for some of the most vibrant scenes in the book, per one reviewer.

This is the author’s fifth novel. Her work has also been published in numerous anthologies and magazines, including the award-winning anthology series Bad-Ass Faeries and Defending the Future. To learn more, visit www.sidhenadaire.com.
Also released in the Bad-Ass Faerie Tale series: James Chambers’ Three Chords of Chaos, a punk-rock love story that brings back Gorge, a faerie master of music.
