Book Review: Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

27 Feb 2018

Some of the most imaginative writing I’ve read in this genre.

The author melds humor into every other page. The humor is mostly situational - not so much wordplay. But it works very well. I also liked the wierd similes used throughout the book. These are the phrases you skim in other books. In this one, you stop and go “Huh”.

I thought all the characters in the story were interesting. Though Slow-hand, as intended by the author, was my favourite. Matrick and Ganelon came a close second. What I liked best about the depictions was there was so much show and so little tell.

Highly recommended.
