Book Overview

A band of fabled mercenaries tour a wild fantasy landscape, battling monsters in arenas in front of thousands of adoring fans. But, a secret and dangerous gig ushers them to the frozen north, and the band is never one to waste a shot at glory.

Live fast, die young.

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, led by the infamous Bloody Rose, rolls into town, 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.

Humorous twists and pulse-ratcheting action abound in Bloody Rose, but its Eames' knack for heart-wrenching poignancy that makes his warm, wonderful fantasy so harmonious. -- NPR

   Great books!
The King's of the Would and then read this immediately after. Great fantasy books, good action and characters you want to root for. Eames has created an interesting world from which I want to hear more.
   Master of his Craft
Eames creates moving backstories for each character and presents incredible climactic emotional and battle-driven moments. In all my fantasy, Moog is quickly becoming my favorite character. Nicholas Eames is a true master of his craft, Nicholas Eames is.
   Extremely readable
Like the first one of Eames'books, this book is extremely funny, interesting and action-packed. It has many memorable characters and this book could without doubt turn into a blockbuster movie!
   Beautifully Written
Most say that Rothfuss'name of the Wind is beautifully written, but I think it has nothing to do with the Kings of Wyld and Bloody Rose.
   F'ing Great Read
Now Mr. Eames is an author to whom I look forward. If he releases a new book, I'll be there to read it. Bloody Rose was an absolute ride of a book.
   Great Fun!
A fantastic follow-up to the kings of Wyld. I hope Nicholas Eames continues to favor readers with more great stories.
   Great read
Especially if you read the first book and love Nerdy stuff... owlbears guys owlbears. Still find ways to pull your heart as well as pull it on.
   Saga did it first. Fable was just a cover band.
I wanted to like Bloody Rose as much as Kings of the Wyld's, but the sequel pales in comparison. It felt like all the same beats were lifted from the first book and placed in this book with different characters. The book dragged from the beginning as we got several examples of the same thing to do go to town, fight monster, whore, and drink. Clay was not as interesting as Tam. Fable wished they were in Saga. Plus, there was a bizarre section in Chapter 35 that changed to the present tense. The deus ex Machina suffered the most during the final battle. If Cura could do that, why didn't she do it during the mission against the Dragon Eater? The answer is for a convenient ending. It could have been so much more, but stuck to the first path that Saga beat in the safe book. The author also loves his use of the epic voice in the middle of a passive battle.
This book was probably better than the first ; it had great humor, depth and story. I appreciated the first book, but I enjoyed this one REALLY!
   Good, but not Great.
The kings of Wyld GREAT! Bloody Rose is just good. The writing was first rate, but it lacked the magic of the decent book. The characters were less interesting and the plot was standard epic fantasy fare. The most interesting character was Cura, but she was not important enough to go deeper and backstory. Brune and Freecloud were just placeholders to fill the ranks. The worst was Tam, though. She went from a completely inexperienced peasant girl to bad bard to exceptional archer in no time at all. Rose had very little personality and none of the wit that the members of Saga had. Three of my greatest pet peeves are the Zero to Hero cliche and the one chosen warrior who is the only one who can defeat the Big Bad Evil Gal, who has no motivation beyond destroying the entire world. I prefer stories on a smaller and more personal scale ''.
