Kings of the Wyld
Kings of the Wyld | Nicholas Eames
GLORY NEVER GETS OLD. Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best -- the meanest, dirtiest, most feared 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. His daughter Rose is trapped in a city besieged by an enemy one hundred thousand strong and hungry for blood. Rescuing Rose is 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 for one last tour across the Wyld.

We are in the middle of moving over state lines and I'm too nervous to read a hardcover (I'm afraid I'll forget the dust jacket since I remove it when I read). Since this book (and book 2 by Nicholas Eames) is the only paperback I have, I'm going to start it. ⚔️
Have you read it? What did you think?

As we all know, I am so inlove with this book.

We have been chatting non stop about it and im so glad someone finally listened to my recommendations and actually loves it like i do!!!

vivastory Love this series 1mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Awesome books and the author seems like a pretty right-on dude too. 🤘 1mo
Sweetkokoro @GrilledCheeseSamurai Yes I agree, the author is a pretty awesome guy! I posted about his books on my IG and he took the time to respond, which I really appreciate. 1mo

Good morning everyone in the #24in48 challenge
This is my entry for the #sffchallenge at hour 6, I‘m a little late since I just woke up. I talk about this book a lot but it means so much to me. I read nothing but SFF, my shelves are full of those books, but this one was the 1st book I read coming out of a 9yr abusive relationship that took reading away from me. Not only is it amazing but it holds strong means for me as my breakaway point.

Kings of the Wyld is tremendous, pulpy SF fun, although it stops short of being great. The highlight is taking adventuring bands to their logical conclusion. And it has rabbit-eared elves. Full review - https://everydayshouldbetuesday.wordpress.com/2019/07/16/kings-of-the-wyld-is-a-...

The red spine, the red heavy metal font letters, the amazing cover art. Gah. I love this book so much. It is absolutely amazing, I know tons talk about Bloody Rose the 2nd in the series (which I do love as well) but this one is its own piece of badass fantasy magic! I love it so much. I actually have the cover art as my phone wallpaper haha.

Great humorous writing that had me grin and laugh out loud while listening to the audiobook. The story line was a bit lacking & predictable but overall an entertaining adventure. 3.5 stars

Part Dungeons and Dragons, part Spinal Tap, all fun. I could have done with fewer penis jokes, but the juvenile humor is by design, and often unexpectedly charming. I'll read the next.

I am so awestruck right now that I don‘t think I‘ll be able to piece my thoughts together on this book! Kings of the Wyld is pure gold. Every few pages, I found myself grinning from ear to ear and chortling like a fool. Also, the characters are so incredibly well written, I‘ve fallen in love with each and every one of them. I didn‘t expect this tale to stir so many emotions in me. I cried some real tears, both happy and sad ones.

Finished this awhile ago, just now getting around to reviewing it! I loved this mix of Game of Thrones meets Name of the Wind but with more humor and levity! It‘s definitely a saga and and full of adventure! Loved the descriptions, all the different fantastical monsters and the characters! Clay Cooper!!! 💖💕 Thanks @TracyReadsBooks for the great recommendation!! #gettingthebandbacktogether #theboysarebackintown

1. My husband thought I was bananas for wanting a second dog but Calli is the best thing that happened this past summer. She was a rescue. Zeus (my black and white dog) likes her well enough and she‘s even taught him to be more snuggly. #dogsoflitsy
2. I want to read 300+ books
3. Another injury for the husband (bad) and adopting Calli (good)
4. Lose weight and be healthier

This book is funny, sad, and touching all in one go. It‘s been a long time since I‘ve read a book this thick with male main characters and liked it. I recommend it for people who like quest books but want more original stories. I think the author did a good job of setting up some interesting ethical questions, built a strong and intriguing world, and wove enough fun that this book is well worth staying up past bed time to read. 4/5 stars

Mitch A bookseller recommended this to me - but it looked so far out of my comfort zone. However, it has SUCH good reviews and I perhaps should give it a go! Good luck! 9mo

Mehso-so

A quick read in a fun world with a great cast of characters. I will say, the book has a... sometimes uncomfortable woman problem in its first half, but as the cast gets rounded out, it seems to right its course. Emotional, entertaining, often funny, but sadly very slight and transparent. Great hook, but it could have used a bit more focus and invention.

Everytime owlbears are mentioned in this book I can't help but think of the Manbearpig in South Park. Every. Single. Time.
This book is a total blast. If the end of Beowulf, when he is brooding over his past as a fearless warrior; meets a fantasy version of Tucker and Dale vs Evil, sounds awesome then you need this book.

I laughed, I cried, I vividly imagined so many great battles. This book is everything I love rolled into one, without being over told. I didn‘t want it to end, I purposely took forever to finish it. And now that it‘s here I can only look towards the sequel and hope that it‘s just as compelling, funny and heartfelt.

Just a small passage from this book, to give an idea how these men converse. It feels real, there are no large fancy words from these men, the way these men talk are written like real men who have spent their days roaming the land fighting. Lots of swearing and blunt remarks and frankly I love it, it just feels real!

Abandon your disbelief, all who enter here. Imagine a summer blockbuster movie when every impossible thing that could happen does happen—usually with a well timed joke—and even though it should be ridiculous you find yourself gleefully enjoying every wild & wonderful moment. THAT is this book in all the best ways. Clay is out of the mercenary business until an old partner comes to him for help. Yeah, they‘re getting the band back together & ❤️it.

GrilledCheeseSamurai Loved it! Ca t wait for book 2 next month! 🤸‍♂️ 1y
