Here’s what people are saying:
Duncan has built a fascinating galaxy …
Truly wonderful science fiction should also make the reader take a good hard look at the world around them, and draw some conclusions about it that they might not have drawn otherwise. And this book delivered on that front.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I sincerely hope that Ms. Duncan has a sequel planned, because I would love to spend more time with these characters.
And from Abyss and Apex:
The setup could be hokey and awkward; instead, it’s fascinating. … I’ve been following Lindsey Duncan’s work for years, since she published her first short story with A&A back in 2007. With this book she’s broken out and reached a whole new level. You’re going to want to read this and share it with your friends.

CONTEMPORARY FANTASY NOVEL FLOW
Kit Morgan has always known there’s more to the world than she sees – it’s hard not to, when her emotions cause objects to shift and glass to shatter. Then she encounters water-witch Chailyn, who reveals to her the existence of fairies, old and treacherous. Chailyn knows as little of surface life as Kit does of the supernatural – but both will have to learn quickly, for Kit’s powers are surfacing.
Joined by Hadrian, whose hypersensitive perceptions have left him jaded, they rouse a hornet’s nest. They must also evade the Borderwatch – a supernatural agency that believes fairies are too dangerous to live and takes issue with Kit’s rogue abilities. Unable to take shelter with the water-witches, but with some unexpected allies, the three are forced to make a stand.

Review from Abyss and Apex:
Flow is a fantasy about inherited magical abilities, faerie-being manifestations, and being royally pissed at someone else choosing your destiny based on things that happened before you were born. There are many genre novels with these basic themes, but Ms. Duncan’s invention of the water witches and their undersea world and how it reaches out through various bodies of water is fresh and new. The book is worth reading for that alone, but there is much more to recommend it. …
Even the secondary characters are well-drawn, complex and fascinating. The many plot threads all resolve in a most satisfying manner. There is even a little romance, but not of the “must rescue the helpless ladies” variety.
I really enjoyed Flow—to the point of re-reading it—and I think you’ll enjoy it, too. – See more here.
HARP CD ROLLING OF THE STONE
A collection of original arrangements spanning a wide variety of influence from traditional to modern. The CD includes both instrumental and vocal selections, featuring a predominance of Scottish and Medieval/Renaissance music with several Irish, Welsh and Breton selections.
The title track, Rolling of the Stone, is originally an a cappella song from an old Scots ballad, the “charming” story of a young maid who bewitches her lover from his grave.
Highlights include an arrangement of 13th century German tune Winder Wie Ist, with original English words and harmony part, master-competition air Niel Gow’s Lament For The Death Of His Second Wife, and a rousing and unusual harp rendition of famed fiddler Alasdair Fraser’s Tommy’s Tarbukas.
Rolling of the Stone CD is available in two ways. You may order through PayPal by clicking:

Rolling of the Stone is also available from Amazon.com.
Reviews for Rolling of the Stone:
This album was a pleasant and unexpected surprise for me as the artist moves from a quiet, reflective harp piece to a ballad sung in a voice startling in its nuance, to traditional and lilting celtic pieces, to a heartbreaking love song, Eriskay Love Lilt, in gaelic and then, surprise!!! Jubilate Deo and Dona Nobis Pacem done in a round — with herself! Color me happy I took a chance on a new artist!
If you love celtic harp, you’ll never tire of the beauty. Think of rustic, grand halls filled with celebrating friends entertained by the artistry of the bard and the harp. Lindsey Duncan is creative in her adaptations of music not usually played on the harp, and yet talented in the finest tradition of Scottish techniques. – JH Raichyk, Dectiri Publishing
The story stuck with me. It’s a well-told adventure fantasy with a gutsy, but real heroine–she’s not your sword-wielding royal down on her luck. The pacing is perfect and the whole story is very creative. Highly recommended for fantasy readers. – Maria Schneider
The Dreamweaver’s Dispute – Anthology Builder
Really an outstanding issue. I don’t think there are any weak pieces in this, but I’m writing this review months after having read the issue and the pieces that live on in memory as truly superior are … Lindsey Duncan’s The Naming Braid … - Sabrina Vourvoulias
