'A fantastic read, a rollicking, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat road-trip of a book' - John Gwynne

'In short: it rocks . . . I finished this book in one night. If I could, I'd see the tour, and buy the t-shirt' - B&N Sci-fi and Fantasy Blog

'Could very well be the debut of the year' - Fantasy Book Review

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.

LOOK OUT FOR BLOODY ROSE, THE SECOND BOOK IN THE BAND SERIES:

'Bloody Rose solidifies what Kings of the Wyld proved. Eames writes like a hurricane and has a voice like no one else in this genre' - Sam Sykes

Genre: Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre." - Sebastien De Castell

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

"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

"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

"Kings of the Wyld is gritty but not grim. It was a blast to read, from start to finish. The boys are getting the band back together, and woe be to anyone who stands in their way. Magic swords, broken promises, and some of the craziest action you're likely to read this side of the Wyld. Reading this book made me want to grab a sword and set off on an epic quest." - Christopher Paolini

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

"A fantastic epic fantasy! Just the right smidgen of tongue-in-cheek to work wonderfully. Go read." - Django Wexler
