Kings of the Wyld
By: Nicholas Eames
My Rating: 5 Stars out of 5
Oh man…Kings of the Wyld is LEGIT.
How do I even set this up? Let’s see…
Think of the Tim Allen movie Wild Hogs.
Think of places like Westeros and Middle-Earth.
Think of friends like Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
Think of a father’s love like Jean Valjean and Cossette.
Think of heroes like Kaladin and Dalinar.
Think of warriors like Darrow or D’Artagnan.
Thnk of battles like Helms Deep or Minas Tirith.
Think of crossing both the Fire Swamp and the Misty Mountains.
Think of magical weapons like Night Blood and The Sword of Gryffindor.
Think of every mythical creature you’ve ever read about from Greek Mythology to Gremlins.
Think of 80’s rock bands, except ones that slay those mythical creatures instead of guitars.
Thinking of all that? Now start laughing. Hysterically.
That’s Kings of the Wyld. Top two for me this year, easy.
For my discerning friends, you need to know that these guys swear like Mark Watney. Expect a four letter f-word every 4 pages and a four letter s-word every 11 pages. Combined, expect to get sweared at every 3 pages. They also have no qualms with using crude names for gender specific body parts, especially when it comes to insults and exclamations. There is one gay character. Lot’s of blood. Plenty of innuendo, but no sex.
It is, however, packed full of fun.
