Overview

Get Your Bad-Ass On!
The rumble of a Harley...
the gleam of black leather...
The shine of polished chrome...
the freedom of the open road....

Motorcycles meet magic and mayhem as Lance Cosain, the halfling leader of The Wild Hunt MC, protects his turf and his people from attacks ordered by Dair na Scath, the high king of the fae.

Holding his own against rogue fae, redcaps, and the gremlins of the road, all Lance wants to do is settle down with his lady. Instead he goes toe-to-toe with the high king's champion over an ancient dagger and the claim to a throne.

Who will triumph? The king of the road or the king of the realm? Either way, the Hunt is on!

Based on the stories "At the Crossroads" and "Within the Guardian Bell" from the award-winning Bad-Ass Faeries Anthology Series.

Praise for Danielle Ackley-McPhail's Biker Faeries
(From reviews of the anthology Bad-Ass Faeries.)

"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

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Although the latest from Ackley-McPhail (Tomorrow's Memories) features an intriguing mix of bikers and elves, the book itself falls flat, victim of clich├ęd storytelling and poor writing. The half-human, half-fae Lance Cosain avoids politics and leads a mixed motorcycle gang of fae and human alike, until an attack by a fellow halfing draws him out. He must rescue assorted damsels in distress-first Suzanne, his lover, is kidnapped and tortured by the halfling, and later his brain-damaged cousin Tilly is taken by the High King himself. In the process, Lance learns the secrets of his own history, and sure enough finds himself imbued with enough power to become a threat to the throne. Ackley-McPhail fails to add depth to the characters, especially the females. Urban fantasy diehards might tolerate this short novel as a way to pass an hour or two, but even they'll chafe at the clumsy use of tropes and phrases like, "the travesty held tightly by his arms and by his will."

    Short story of bikers and faerie folklore

    Fast read. Something different that combines bad-ass bikers and faerie folklore. Just reading the glossary of terms was entertaining itself. I recommend reading the glossary then read the book, but you can pick up the biker slang while reading in context. Not a lot of "fluff" in building up character but you get the gist of who they are and their relationship. Scenes unfold and end quickly.
