A retired group of warriors must get the band back together for one last seemingly impossible mission in this rollicking fantasy debut
GLORY NEVER GETS OLD
Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best - the meanest, dirtiest, most feared and admired crew of mercenaries this side of the Heartwyld.
But their glory days are long past; the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk - or a combination of the three. Then a former bandmate turns up at Clay's door with a plea for help: his daughter Rose is trapped in a city besieged by an enemy horde one hundred thousand strong and hungry for blood. Rescuing Rose is the kind of impossible mission that only the very brave or the very stupid would sign up for.
It's time to get the band back together for one last tour across the Wyld.
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
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
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
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
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.
