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.

"Captivating . . . Guerdon is a city that seethes with history, horror and hidden secrets."
Seven Blades in Black (2019)
(Grave of Empires, book 1)
"Seven Blades in Black is terrific. The tale of Sal the Cacophony is delightfully sarcastic and deeply sorrowful. If you've ever wanted to read Final Fantasy: The Book, this is it."
The Bone Ships (2019)
(Tide Child Trilogy, book 1)
"A singular, sensational new voice in epic fantasy."
A Little Hatred (2019)
(Age of Madness, book 1)
"A Little Hatred is Abercrombie at his very best: witty, wise, and whip-smart. Masterfully plotted . . . . I had high hopes for this book, and it exceed them all."
The Black Hawks (2019)
(Articles of Faith, book 1)
"Reminds me of Abercrombie’s THE BLADE ITSELF."
The Unspoken Name (2020)
(Serpent Gates, book 1)
A K Larkwood
"An astounding debut, written with skill and stunning assurance . . . From its flawless first page to its bittersweet last, The Unspoken Name is unlike anything I’ve read before."
Paternus: War of Gods (2020)
(Paternus, book 3)
"Terrific! Intelligent, intricate, suspenseful, and epic."
The Worst of All Possible Worlds (2020)
(Salvagers, book 3)
"Intense action and refreshingly honest characters. I loved it!."
The Blacktongue Thief (2021)
(Blacktongue, book 1)
"Chock-full of wry wit, foul language, and characters who arrive on the page with savage, sordid pasts hot on their heels. Often humorous, occasionally horrifying, and sometimes incredibly poignant, I love every single page of this book. Every sentence, even. It's that good."
Artifact Space (2021)
"I loved Nbaro. I loved her crew. I loved their ship, the Athens, and I loved every page of this book. Miles has done something extraordinary here, fusing space adventure and war-time camaraderie with gritty, day-to-day detail in a way that makes the future feel like history in the best way possible."
"Rabbits is a remarkably assured debut, deftly written and laced with intrigue. It combines Haruki Murakami’s slice-of-life surrealness with the thrilling pace and pop-culture throwbacks of Ready Player One. I loved it."
The Empire's Ruin (2021)
(Ashes of the Unhewn Throne, book 1)
"Brian Staveley’s books are epic in every sense of the word. He’s a giant in the genre, no doubt."
Daughter of Redwinter (2022)
(Redwinter Chronicles, book 1)
"Daughter of Redwinter has it all: enigmatic characters, shady politics, secret cults, ancient evils, and a young woman grappling with her own shattered identity while navigating a world in which no one is quite what they seem."
