My review today is for:
A copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own. Thanks Orbit Books!
I kept seeing the gorgeous cover for this book floating around online and it made me take notice enough to see what the book was all about. After finding out some more info on the book I decided I would try yet again to see if I could get Orbit books to send me a review copy. Then finally it happened, I was lucky enough for them to send me a copy, my first one from Orbit. Very exciting! Then I read the book, and was excited all over again because it was awesome! I didn’t know what to expect really but it surpassed all my expectations. Truly a fun and entertaining book.
This band of characters were a treat to read about, this book is absolutely character driven and I enjoyed them all. Not much world building or story arcs going on here, in fact my only real complaint is that the book is quite simple. No thought needed, just sit back and enjoy! It’s like a summer blockbuster movie, so entertaining!
In conclusion if you want to sit down and read a book that will make you laugh, make you cry, make you enjoy the hell out of it, I recommend this book wholeheartedly. I am excited for a sequel or two from this summer blockbuster of a book!
As you know if you have read my reviews before I am not about long reviews with synopsis and spoilers. I just give my opinion on my experience with this book and you can take it from there. Now on to the next book.
Is out NOW!
So go get your copy!
BUY HERE: Kings of the Wyld
GLORY NEVER GETS OLD.
Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best, the most feared and renowned crew of mercenaries this side of the Heartwyld.
Their glory days long past, the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk, or a combination of the three. Then an ex-bandmate turns up at Clay’s door with a plea for help–the kind of mission that only the very brave or the very stupid would sign up for.
It’s time to get the band back together.
“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
“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
“Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre.”―Sebastien de Castell
“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
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.
