Classic fantasy with a modern twist; a gritty, fresh and fun novel set in the world of Nicholas Eames's Gemmell Award Winning debut, Kings of the Wyld.

Tam Hashford is tired of working at her local pub, slinging drinks for world-famous mercenaries and listening to the bards sing of adventure and glory in the world beyond her sleepy hometown.

When the biggest mercenary band of all rolls into town, led by the infamous Bloody Rose, Tam jumps at the chance to sign on as their bard. It's adventure she wants-and adventure she gets as the crew embark on a quest that will end in one of two ways: glory or death.

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 probably writing at this very moment.

This book kicks ass! It's downright funny, adventurous, exciting, touching, heart wrenching, and engaging! . . . Give Kings Of The Wyld a try, just be prepared to set aside all your other books for it! This reader can't wait for more from the author -- RED STAR REVIEWS on KINGS OF THE WYLD We grow to care so much about these men who once fought for glory, but now do so for each other, and for what is right. There were moments where I cheered, moments where I laughed, or held my baited breath as the book took that roller coaster-like lurch over the hill into a giant set piece battle or brawl. I love these characters, their camaraderie, their sense of duty, their love for one another. I love that I haven't had this much fun reading in a long, long time. . . .You will want this debut. Very. Very. Much. Long live the Kings of the Wyld -- SERIAL BOOKSELLER on KINGS OF THE WYLD Kings of the Wyld is, quite simply, enormous fun . . . a splendid rollercoaster of the most rollicking kind . . . I adored this book. It's gone immediately onto my Books of 2017 list and I will pester you mercilessly to read it -- ESPRESSO COCO This is a fast-paced, excellently written and extremely enjoyable fantasy story . . . could very well be the debut of the year -- FANTASY BOOK REVIEW on KINGS OF THE WYLD An entertaining, brilliantly crafted adventure . . . You'll fall in love with the members of Saga and want to cheer them on every step of the way . . . From the first page to the last, Kings of the Wyld is a rollicking fast-paced novel with just the right amount of grit and wit -- BIBLIOSANCTUM on KINGS OF THE WYLD Kings of the Wyld is awesome, and quite possibly one of the best debut novels I've ever read . . . This is, without a shadow of a doubt, unmissable -- TINY REVIEWS on KINGS OF THE WYLD [A] 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 on KINGS OF THE WYLD I absolutely loved this book -- Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND, on KINGS OF THE WYLD Fantastic, funny, ferocious. Hugely recommended. Read it now -- Sam Sykes on KINGS OF THE WYLD Joe Abercrombie meets Terry Pratchett, and that is not praise I would give lightly -- FANTASY REVIEW BARN on KINGS OF THE WYLD An extremely entertaining debut . . .Thoroughly recommended -- SFF WORLD on KINGS OF THE WYLD 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 SCI-FI & FANTASY BLOG on KINGS OF THE WYLD Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre -- Sebastien de Castell on KINGS OF THE WYLD A rollicking, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat road-trip of a book . . . Wonderful -- John Gwynne on KINGS OF THE WYLD Bloody Rose solidifies what Kings of the Wyld proved. Eames writes like a hurricane and has a voice like no one else in this genre -- Sam Sykes
