Chronicles of The Black Company by Glen Cook
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Excellent. It takes you a while to get into the language, which is a bit more terse than your usual fantasy brick. You can see where Steven Erikson is coming from. This is far better than most run of the mill fantasy, even though… a map wouldn’t have hurt. I was completely hooked after 50 pages or so, and just couldn’t stop reading the last 100. Excellent indeed.
