The Return of the Black Company by Glen Cook
I love the characters. I think my real problem cok that this is told by the company doctor writing the history. I see that several reviewers complain about it being overly choppy a.
Victorious historians rule where good or evil lies. Paperbackpages. Sprowadzil opowiesc do poziomu zwyklego czlowieka, porzucajac zuzyte schematy krolow, ksiazat i zlych czarnoksieznikow. This volume definitely returns to a bit more of the mercenary mindset and nastiness of the Black Company, and while Murgen continues to present the company as full of generally decent guys he also makes it clear that they are not good guys and their motivations and goals are unabashedly selfish.
But through it all, you stay loyal to your friends and the men who fight with you, and you honor the past, present, and — gods willing — future members of The Black Company of Khatovar.

We are our own mourners. And of course, the bickering of One-Eye and Goblin. What really got me interested was the parts that included the Lady. Reason with me people: Our annalist is not privy to the big picture, and lacks the benefit of time’s distance and omniscience–I say all the better!
Martin, Joe Abercrombie and Steven Erikson, where fantasy during his time were still Tolkien copycats with a band of heroes going on a quest.

The man is aware of his strengths and his flaws, and it’s always a joy to follow his narrative. These men, scoundrels, desperadoes, and grim bastards through and through, with nothing else in their lives, yet have a family and a reason to endure in each other.
He just does not have much stomach for plunder and lgen, much as they are part of our business. Adventure and suspense abound, but it is the connection you develop with the men of the Black Company, and their relationships with one another, that keeps you riveted for the duration of this amazing work.
If you are this far into the series, you should know that this omnibus follows the same style as the previous ones. But I still try to avoid looking at the worst. I am looking forward to the final book, and to find out what happens to a very shocking ending in this book.
Well, what I like about the Black Company is that it illustrates more or less everyday guys in war in a truthful way. Popularity Popularity Featured Price: Maybe it’s not completely my style but I did find some aspects that held my attention. Occurring simultaneously with Dreams of Steel, the sixth Black Company installment is probably the one that adds the least to the overall story arc of the whole saga.
These interactions in here are brilliant: I love and hate this trilogy. Please try your request again later. I see that several reviewers complain about it being overly choppy and abrupt, and not laying enough background framework.
The books are written from the point komppania view of Croaker, the Company Annalist and the Physician.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The mercenaries are definitely not nice guys, who do a glrn of dirty work, but they grow on you and I found I cared about them by the end of the first book. Why are we even here? Case in point in book 1 at the battle of Charms.
Awesome wizards, kick ass villains, drama, action, more action and more drama! When asked for the elevator pitch “The Black Company” is quite simply the best fantasy series I have ever read. What was the hook? May 15, Michelle Feist rated it did not like it Shelves: That is the first thing you do, even when you know there is no enemy within a hundred miles. Thinking back on it, I can’t remember much of the first book but I do remember that I wasn’t really that interested in the story until the Second book.
For many readers, I suspect that is a relief, for The grisly aftermath scenes, the sense of tension and climactic encounters, even the penury and shitty low-life perspectives of Marron Shed and Asa were all handled so deftly as to captivate my imagination.
High to Low Avg. Following a fierce, proud tradition of selling their services to the highest bidder, the company takes pride in their work to an almost obsessive degree. The combat scenes stood out as rather exceptional because they were vivid, dramatic, and more often evoked the sense of bitter perseverance, dogged endurance, and following orders to stand with your brothers though not without last-ditch heroics and desperate manoeuvres and covered everything from duels and small skirmishes, to epic sieges and pitched infantry battles.
But I was okay with that; I could chalk it up to Croaker – it just isn’t what he wanted to talk about.
