    Dreams of Steel Review

    Reviewer: Eric Fraga
    Dreams of Steel Review
    The Company is in disarray. Their leader, Croaker, has been kidnapped by Soul Catcher, an ex-member of The Ten Who Were Taken, and The Lady's sister. The leaderless company must now turn to the only other person who has experience leading such a massive army. This person is none other than The Lady, former ruler of the evil Empire of old. Having fallen in love with Croaker, she seeks nothing more than to punish those whom she believes took him, the Shadow Masters. These mysterious wizards know of The Lady's former power, but they also know that it is gone (or is it?). They know now is the time to strike, to take out The Lady and The Company before she becomes more like her former self.
    As for Soul Catcher and the kidnapped Croaker: What are they planning? Croaker is held captive and Soul Catcher thought dead. What could this result in? Will Croaker reunite with the Lady and continue their too short lived romance? And what is this talk of the Canyon of The Glittering Stone? Give the story a read to find out.
    This is the most unique of the novels written by Glen Cook, as it is written through the voice of The Lady, former employer, enemy, and now leader of The Black Company. You really get to know this interesting character in this tale. Further, we learn a great deal about the history behind the magic and madness of the world. I couldn't put this one down. It gives fans of the series everything they have grown to love: Magic, Swords, Battles, Politics, and Twists. I highly recommend it.
