Ever wanted to read a self-aware Expendables in a Fantasy world? Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames is for you. I wasn’t a fan for the first half (it was solid, but annoying, and Getting The Band Back Together isn’t a story I enjoy), but it shaped up massively in the second half, and I really enjoyed the ending! The first half of the book does a lot of work to establish the characters and the humor, and took its sweet time about it. It seemed as if the book was only ha-ha-funny, but the second half tugged on some serious heartstrings, and found a good compromise between humour and serious character building/experiences.
