Product description

Review

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

Manages to be 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 SCI-FI AND FANTASY BLOG

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

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, author of DRAGON LORDS: FOOL'S GOLD

It was 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, author of MALICE

A promising, fast-paced debut that balances classic quest fantasy with modern sensibilities and liberal doses of humor. Huzzah! -- Alex Marshall, author of A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER

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 humour. Great reading! -- Ian Irvine

Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre -- Sebastien de Castell, author of TRAITOR'S BLADE

I had a brilliant time reading this book. Kings of the Wyld is escapism of my favourite type - noble quests, edge of the seat action and well-rounded, likeable characters that carve out their own unique definition of "family" -- FORBIDDEN PLANET

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

An extremely entertaining debut . . .Thoroughly recommended -- SFF WORLD

Joe Abercrombie meets Terry Pratchett, and that is not praise I would give lightly -- FANTASY REVIEW BARN

I only have two questions that remain unanswered - (1) Where do I get my Saga tour t-shirt? (2) When does the second book come out? . . . A highly recommended debut, I can't wait for more -- THE ELOQUENT PAGE

Kings of the Wyld does everything right . . . Nicholas Eames knows how to write and, more importantly, he knows how to pace and structure a novel. He mixes action and humor in equal measure, and weaves genuine emotion into the heroics. It's a fun novel, but one where sorrow and melancholy are always lurking just under the narrative . . . I loved the characters, loved the journey and even loved the climax . . . Kings of the Wyld is a fantastically fun read, from beginning to end, and I am already looking forward to the sequel. -- BEAUTY IN RUINS

Kings of the Wyld is rollicking, explosive fun from cover to cover . . . written with exuberance and elan. Always assured, Eames strikes the same balance as Pratchett at his best, drawing humour from the conventions and tropes of high fantasy while also clearly loving them -- BLUE BOOK BALLOON

This will be one of THE books of 2017. Brilliant, innovative, immersive and just pure fun to read. -- THE BOOK PLANK

There are gladiatorial arenas, aerial battles, pissed off dragons, crazy portal-hopping madcap assassins . . . It is goofy and silly and fast-moving and explodey. And it does all those things well . . . Wyld also works hard to make its characters meaningful - you're not just along for the craaaaazy ride, you actually care about the other passengers -- PORNOKITSCH

I absolutely loved this book -- Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND

Amid all the airship battles and forest chases there's a vulnerability, a charm born from affection and nostalgia -- SFX, five star review

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

Fantastic . . . Eames is an author that has the potential to set gene trends with this book -- BOOKWORM BLUES

Readers will not be able to put this book down -- BOOKLIST

This is a fast-paced, excellently written and extremely enjoyable fantasy story . . . could very well be the debut of the year -- FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

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

It's superbly written, full of action, has a really solid plot line that never lets up, some of the most awesome characters I've ever read, and a really well built world full of all kinds of mythological and legendary creatures . . . This book is a hilarious romp from start to finish. I laughed my ass off. What a great debut from Nicholas Eames -- SUPERSTAR DRIFTER

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

Eames' debut was one of the most fun times I've had in a long while, and I honestly cannot wait to see what he's going to write next -- SPECULATIVE HERALD

From a trek across dangerous lands to a massive final battle intermingled with unyielding humor, this felt like GRRM plowing into Terry Practhett at a ridiculously fast pace. Nonstop entertainment in a rare and beautiful form, this book will tackle and capture the heart of fantasy and adventure lovers alike. Be prepared to traverse the Heartwyld with the most rambunctious collection of characters known to man and find yourself loving every minute of it -- BOOKS, VERTIGO AND TEA

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

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

Eames cranked it all the way to 11. So f*** it, you know what? 11 out of 10. As the saying goes: They don't make 'em like they used to. But Eames did. And he made it better -- Michael Everest

The best debut I have read in awhile, Nicholas Eames' Kings of the Wyld has everything I love in the fantasy genre with some original twists and angles -- THE QUILL TO LIVE

A cheeky, warm-hearted romp through a D+D monster compendium with a memorable (mostly pensionable) band of mercenaries being pinballed from one crisis to another. Nick delivers a sharp, funny and satisfying page-turner -- Adrian Selby, author of SNAKEWOOD

George R. R. Martin meets Terry Pratchett -- BUZZFEED BOOKS

An absolutely outstanding debut . . . [It has] all the heart and passion that great fantasy can bring in the hands of a master -- Myke Cole, author of THE ARMOURED SAINT

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

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.
