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.

Rock and Roll.

This book is brilliantly entertaining, rip roaring fun and adventure, set in a fantasy world that is extraordinarily creative, beautifully engaging characters plus Moog. MOOG. I say no more – read it live it love it.

ANYWAY fans of fantasy need to look out for this novel – it is old school in its thinking but bang up to date modern in its writing, as such it will appeal across many levels. The pop culture humour is spot on (not the easiest to pull off and actually be hilarious) all mixed in with dark  fantasy elements that personally I love, some deep set themes running through the narrative and a banging good ending.

Really excellent construction here, tight plot, clever expansion of the characters, hugely addictive and just like a little book dance of joy. I was up all night with this – laughing out loud at times, enjoying the adrenalin rush of the fight scenes but mostly just caught up with this merry band and their ongoing quest.

Kings of the Wyld is a character driven, high octane, full of beans fantasy epic. Loved it.

Highly Recommended.
