*****

Tam Hashford is tired of working at her local pub, slinging drinks for world-famous mercenaries and listening to the bards sing of adventure and glory in the world beyond her sleepy hometown.

When the biggest mercenary band of all rolls into town, led by the infamous Bloody Rose, Tam jumps at the chance to sign on as their bard. It's adventure she wants-and adventure she gets as the crew embark on a quest that will end in one of two ways: glory or death.

IT'S TIME TO TAKE A WALK ON THE WYLD SIDE

Review quote

I laughed and wept and worried a lot and had the most tremendous time reading Bloody Rose. Eames is a gifted and entertaining storyteller -- Kevin Hearne, author of The Iron Druid Chronicles This is one f*cking great read . . . easily one of my favourite novels of the past few years -- GRIMDARK MAGIZINE Bloody Rose. Bloody brilliant . . . [Eames] delivers another cracking tale of high adventure . . . very funny in places, and incredibly sad in others. The characters are, once again, utterly brilliant -- ESPRESSO COCO Eames is the one to watch who will end up in Rothfuss, Lynch, Martin territory for excellence -- FANTASY BOOK REVIEW A power-chord fantasy overflowing with attitude -- BOOKPAGE Kings of the Wyld is a joy and Bloody Rose is just as good. Exciting, entertaining and a hell of a lot of fun . . . I loved every page -- THE ELOQUENT PAGE A heartfelt read, with a beautiful world and a cast I deeply connected with. Eames' narrative voice is one of the best in this generation of fantasy authors, and I cannot wait to read everything else he puts out -- THE QUILL TO LIVE Delivered on every level possible, and then some . . . Once again, Eames' writing simply shines . . . I seriously cannot wait to see what adventures Eames has in store for his characters next -- BOOKS, BONES & BUFFY Eames joyfully mashes rock music elements and epic fantasy tropes to create the equivalent of a 500-page heavy-metal guitar solo: loud, frenetic, unpredictable, and gripping . . . [A] glorious romp worthy of multiple encores -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Grabbed me by the heartstrings and still hasn't quite let go. Bloody Rose is a work of literary art, something incredibly rare and valuable and shows just how engrossing fiction can be. It's epic, it's exciting, and it's undoubtedly one of the best books I've read in recent years -- TINY REVIEWS If you loved Kings of the Wyld, you're going to love Bloody Rose. And, I mean, if you haven't read Kings of the Wyld yet then drop everything you are doing. Right now. GO. . . . a fantastic book -- SUPERSTAR DRIFTER I was a big fan of Kings of the Wyld, but I think Bloody Rose has actually topped it. Eames once again hits the perfect balance of humor and heart, irreverent references and real emotion. The characters are great, the adventure is epic, and he's slowly deepening the worldbuilding in a way that has me eager for more -- Django Wexler Exceeded my already high expectations -- THE NERD BOOK REVIEW Eames is the current reigning champion of joyful, human, madcap messy fantasy that hits all the right notes -- FORBIDDEN PLANET Bloody Rose is bloody brilliant! It is a book that will make you remember why you fell in love with reading in the first place . . . proves without a shadow of a doubt that Nicholas Eames is one of the best in the new generation of modern fantasy writers -- THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK I laughed and wept and worried a lot and had the most tremendous time reading Bloody Rose. Eames is a gifted and entertaining storyteller -- Kevin Hearne, author of the Iron Druid Chronicles [Eames] writes the kind of fantasy that is both immensely satisfying and deeply human . . . Kings of the Wyld was fun, but Bloody Rose is gods-damned epic . . . one of the best books of the year -- FANTASY HIVE 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

About Nicholas Eames

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 probably writing at this very moment.
