Editorial Reviews

Review

"George R. R. Martin meets Terry Pratchett."―Buzzfeed Books

"Kings of the Wyld is gritty but not grim. It was a blast to read, from start to finish. The boys are getting the band back together, and woe be to anyone who stands in their way. Magic swords, broken promises, and some of the craziest action you're likely to read this side of the Wyld. Reading this book made me want to grab a sword and set off on an epic quest."―Christopher Paolini

"A fantastic read, a rollicking, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat road-trip of a book. Great characters, loveable rogues that I genuinely cared about and all manner of fantastical monsters. All spiced with a sly sense of humour that had me smiling throughout. Wonderful."―John Gwynne

"A comedy, an adventure tale, a consideration on growing older, and a sendup of fantasy conventions, all at the same time. It also has heart. In short: it rocks....I finished this book in one night. If I could, I'd see the tour, and buy the t-shirt. Instead, I'll have to content myself with waiting for the sequel, and reading it again."―B&N SF & Fantasy Blog

"Brilliant debut novel... Eames has cranked the thrills of epic fantasy up to 11... Moreover, the plot is emotionally rewarding, original, and hilarious. Eames clearly set out to write something fun to read, and he has succeeded spectacularly."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fantastic, funny, ferocious. Hugely recommended. Read it now."―Sam Sykes

"Absolutely awesome. If the Beatles held a concert tomorrow (with all the necromancy required for that to happen), it still wouldn't be as good a 'getting the band back together' story as this. Full of heroes, humor, and heart."―Jon Hollins

"Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre."―Sebastien de Castell

"A fantastic epic fantasy! Just the right smidgen of tongue-in-cheek to work wonderfully. Go read."―Django Wexler

"An absolutely outstanding debut . . . [It has] all the heart and passion that great fantasy can bring in the hands of a master."―Myke Cole

"Kings of the Wyld took me back to my Dungeons and Dragons days. It has well-crafted characters long past their best but still fighting, non-stop fantasy action and welcome touches of humor. Great reading!"―Ian Irvine

"A promising, fast-paced debut that balances classic quest fantasy with modern sensibilities and liberal doses of humor. Huzzah!"―Alex Marshall

"An outstanding debut which will make you laugh and cry and hold your breath. This is a book that has it all."―K. J. Parker

"Escapism of my favorite type - noble quests, edge-of-the-seat action, and well-rounded, likeable characters that carve out their own unique definition of "family". If you like your fantasy gritty and your humor dark, then this is the next book for you."―Forbidden Planet

"Nicholas Eames is the voice of modern fantasy."―Michael R. Fletcher

"Eames' debut fantasy tale has it all....Readers will not be able to put this book down."―Booklist (starred review)

"Mercenaries get the rock star treatment in this funny, heart-filled epic fantasy."―Book Riot

About the Author

Nicholas Eames was born to parents of infinite patience and unstinting support in Wingham, Ontario. Though he attended college for theatre arts, he gave up acting to pursue the infinitely more attainable profession of 'epic fantasy novelist.' Kings of the Wyld is his first novel. Nicholas loves black coffee, neat whiskey, the month of October, and video games. He currently lives in Ontario, Canada, and is very probably writing at this very moment. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
