"George R. R. Martin meets Terry Pratchett."―Buzzfeed Books
"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
"Joe Abercrombie meets Terry Pratchett, and that is not praise I would give lightly."―Fantasy Review Barn
"A comedy, an adventure tale, a consideration on growing older, and a sendup of fantasy conventions, all at the same time. It also has heart. In short: it rocks....I finished this book in one night. If I could, I'd see the tour, and buy the t-shirt. Instead, I'll have to content myself with waiting for the sequel, and reading it again."―B&N SF & Fantasy Blog
"Brilliant debut novel... Eames has cranked the thrills of epic fantasy up to 11... Moreover, the plot is emotionally rewarding, original, and hilarious. Eames clearly set out to write something fun to read, and he has succeeded spectacularly."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Fantastic, funny, ferocious. Hugely recommended. Read it now."―Sam Sykes
"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
"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
"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
"Escapism of my favorite type - noble quests, edge-of-the-seat action, and well-rounded, likeable characters that carve out their own unique definition of "family". If you like your fantasy gritty and your humor dark, then this is the next book for you."―Forbidden Planet
"Nicholas Eames is the voice of modern fantasy."―Michael R. Fletcher
"A great deal of fun.... I only have two questions that remain unanswered - (1) Where do I get my Saga tour t-shirt? (2) When does the second book come out?"―The Eloquent Page
"Will be one of THE books of 2017. Brilliant, innovative, immersive and just pure fun."―The Book Plank
"Eames strikes the same balance as Pratchett at his best....Just a super read, a really fresh book, one to savour from start to finish."―Blue Book Balloon
"Fantastic...Eames is an author that has the potential to set genre trends with this book. This book is a breath of fresh air."―Book Worm Blues
"Eames' debut fantasy tale has it all....Readers will not be able to put this book down."―Booklist (starred review)
About the Author
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.

May not be "the best" but still pretty freaking good. Really want to read the next in this series...like right now.
And to note - I usually don't like epic fantasies. I tend to avoid them like the plague but this one I came to adore. Yes, there were a few moments that I thought the book lagged but not enough to knock my rating down at all (which says something for me because usually I have no qualms doing so because I don't like books that are slow).
Brilliant writing. Great characters (I have a soft spot for Moog, definitely) and a really good story line.
The author does a great job with most of the book. There are a few jokes/puns that were obviously in his mind prior to the story, not a bad thing, but painfully inserted in some cases. Also, while I understand the foul language present within a group of people that fight for a living; I would have preferred it for more dramatic moments or not at all. Just a personal preference, but it is the main reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
The book is a fun read, great adventure, likable heroes and a good story within a pretty well conceived world. I would read other books from this author and recommend Kings of the Wyld to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels.
There's a fair bit of old soldier cussing. But if you can handle that, this is a funny, surprising, and even poetic fantasy adventure.
I love Moog, he is my favorite character. =)
