Hi, thanks for visiting my page. I’m Duncan, a fantasy and science fiction author from Ireland. I love to blend my passion for Medieval and Renaissance history with the freedom of fantasy environments to create fast paced heroic fantasy adventures with compelling characters and high stakes—exactly the types of stories that I love to read, so I hope you’ll like them too.

You can find more of my online hangouts and my work at the links below. Don’t forget to sign up for my news letter if you want to keep up to date on all my news and new releases!



I’m delighted to announce my most recent trilogy with Tor, Dragonslayer - a heroic fantasy tale about redemption, revenge, and megalomania. Oh, and dragons. Plenty of dragons!

I have a world map with all the locations I've visited marked, but it didn't survive the reconstruction of my website. I'll have to post it back up!(less)

Book 2 is out in November, and Book 3 in March, I think, so not too long to wait for the whole lot.(less)

January Updates

Just a quick post with some updates this week!

I’m juggling a few projects at the moment, which is certainly keeping me busy. My main focus is on working through the edits for the final part of the Blood of Kings trilogy. I’m still on track for a late April release for this, so hopefully I’ll be able to keep to that!

I’m also working on the first draft of the third book in my Alpha Protocol series,

Hi Fenrir, I think it's pretty safe to assume that horses, dogs, and probably some other animal sidekicks find their way to Jorundyr's Hall eventually!
The Wolf of the North Trilogy by Duncan M. Hamilton
"excellent

Not a Viking tale as I had expected but gripping and full of battles and honour debts. Fast paced but very well connected so it flows from storyline to story. And a good ending!"

Dragonslayer by Duncan M. Hamilton
"4.5 stars rounded to 5 because it's the best book I've read in like a year.

After a slew of disappointing books, this was just the story I needed to reassure myself that there are still good stories in the world. I enjoyed the story and pacing of thi" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Duncan M. Hamilton  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Only a very special type of man can love one woman to the exclusion of everyone else. To the exclusion of everything else. To carry her memory across half the world and back again because of it, knowing that death is likely all that awaits him.’ He paused, purely for effect. ‘A very special type of man indeed.”
Duncan M. Hamilton, The Wolf of the North

“He half expected deformities, crazed, manic behaviour; something, anything, that would mark them out as being his natural enemy. He was disappointed. It was more difficult to hate someone who looked just like the man who lived in the next house.”
Duncan M. Hamilton, The Wolf of the North

“be patient. After weeks of walking Greyfell around the paddock and sharing apples”
Duncan M. Hamilton, The Wolf of the North
