4.0 out of 5 stars Beware - this is not the end of the Black Company!, 23 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Books of the South, the (Chronicles of the Black Company) (Paperback)
The Books of the South continues Glan Cook's chronicles of the Black Company, with the first two books in this compilation covering Croaker and co. as they travel south to Khatovar, to return the compamy chronicles to the birthplace of the Black Company.

Of course, things rapidly begin to go wrong, and several major villans from the North turn out to be not so dead after all...

The first two books are good and develop the relationship between Croaker and the Lady nicely. Cook's writing style does not change and is low on description but high on action. Some people like this, some people hate it. BE WARNED however - book two ends on a doozy of a cliffhanger and book three in this set is actually a standalone novel that does nothing to resolve it, instead concentrating on events in the north after Croaker departs.

At the time of writing, getting hold of the next set of books (Glittering Stone, starting with Bleak Seasons) is hard and expensive - hopefully they will also be reissued, and soon!
