Duncan M. Hamilton holds Masters' Degrees in History and Law, and has practiced as a barrister. He lives in Ireland, near the sea. Hamilton's debut trilogy was the Society of the Sword (The Tattered Banner, The Huntsman's Amulet, and The Telastrian Song). This was followed by the Norse-inspired Wolf of the North trilogy; both series were self-published. Dragonslayer and The Knight of the Silver Circle, the first two books of the Dragonslayer trilogy, were published by Tor in 2019.
Praise for Dragonslayer
"Successfully mixes swords, sorcery, and skullduggery with complex characters. Dumas fans will especially appreciate the faux-French setting. This is pure adventure fun with plenty for epic fantasy readers to enjoy."
--Publishers Weekly "Betrayals, ritual magic, an enchanted relic, and lost histories. A charming narrative... entertaining. Recommended for fans of dragons and medieval settings."
--Library Journal "Action-packed, filled with intrigue and betrayals, surprises and ferocious magic. Most importantly, it's entertaining from start to finish. I look forward to seeing what awaits our unlikely hero and the powerful sorceress in the books to come."
