“Kings of the Wyld” by Nicholas Eames

Quick summary:

Kings of the Wyld is a fantasy novel about a band of warriors who were once the best in the land but have grown old and gone their separate ways.

Our protagonist, Clay, who’s known for his shield Blackheart, settled down to a comfortable life and has started a family. Frontman Gabriel, a.k.a. Golden Gabe, also married and had a kid but didn’t settle into the peace and monotonous comfort of family life. Moog, the band’s magician, started a lucrative business selling his invention – Magic Moog’s Magnificent Phallic Phylactery; while quick, knife-wielding Matrick grew fat and became a cuckold king. The only member of the band who remained unchanged over the years is badass Ganelon, who was turned to stone.

When the story begins, Gabe has travelled long and hard to ask Clay to help him get the band back together so they can save his daughter, Rose, who’s much like her father at his prime as Golden Gabe and has ran off to the city Castia to save it from a horde of monsters. Clay is reluctant to leave the comfort of his family, but decides to go because he too is a father and would be willing to do anything to save his daughter if she were in a similar situation.
