Victor Tanasa a dat nota:
I didn't like how the first 150 to 200 pages of Bloody Rose were spent wandering from city to city, mostly focusing on fights I know the band will win, all the while getting minimum character development, and all this at the expense of the main plotline. I also found the "old guys getting the band together again" from the first book more fun and interesting than the "I want to get out of my father's shadow" trope used here. At times, there were way too many descriptions of the monsters the band is facing, which bored and made me want to skip those passages. On the plus side, the good mix of humor and serious themes is still there. A solid follow-up, although I enjoyed Kings of the Wyld much more.
"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
"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
"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, author of The Thousand Names
"The equivalent of a 500-page heavy metal guitar solo: loud, frenetic, unpredictable, and gripping. . . . This is a messy, glorious romp worthy of multiple encores."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"High-octane thrill ride, with one splashy action battle sequence after another, with the stakes ever-rising, until the final countdown."—B&N SF & Fantasy Blog
"George R. R. Martin meets Terry Pratchett."—Buzzfeed Books on Kings of the Wyld
"A fantastic read, a rollicking, page-turning, edge-of-your-seat road-trip of a book. Great characters, loveable rogues that I genuinely cared about and all manner of fantastical monsters. All spiced with a sly sense of humour that had me smiling throughout. Wonderful."—John Gwynne on Kings of the Wyld
"Brilliant debut novel... Eames has cranked the thrills of epic fantasy up to 11... Moreover, the plot is emotionally rewarding, original, and hilarious. Eames clearly set out to write something fun to read, and he has succeeded spectacularly."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Kings of the Wyld
"Absolutely awesome. If the Beatles held a concert tomorrow (with all the necromancy required for that to happen), it still wouldn't be as good a 'getting the band back together' story as this. Full of heroes, humor, and heart."—Jon Hollins on Kings of the Wyld
"Nicholas Eames brings brazen fun and a rock & roll sensibility to the fantasy genre."—Sebastien de Castell on Kings of the Wyld
"An absolutely outstanding debut . . . [It has] all the heart and passion that great fantasy can bring in the hands of a master."—Myke Cole on Kings of the Wyld
"Kings of the Wyld took me back to my Dungeons and Dragons days. It has well-crafted characters long past their best but still fighting, non-stop fantasy action and welcome touches of humor. Great reading!"—Ian Irvine on Kings of the Wyld
"A promising, fast-paced debut that balances classic quest fantasy with modern sensibilities and liberal doses of humor. Huzzah!"—Alex Marshall on Kings of the Wyld
"An outstanding debut which will make you laugh and cry and hold your breath. This is a book that has it all."—K. J. Parker on Kings of the Wyld
"Nicholas Eames is the voice of modern fantasy."—Michael R. Fletcher on Kings of the Wyld
"Eames' debut fantasy tale has it all....Readers will not be able to put this book down."—Booklist (starred review) on Kings of the Wyld
