"Bleak Seasons". The Black Company is under siege inside Dejagore with their leader Croaker probably dead. Murgen takes charge at a time when the Shadowlander horde assaults them and treachery from inside the company and from other trapped groups insidiously attack them from within the city. Their situations is perilous and their trust in Murgen as their leader is shaky as he has been their chronicler annalist; an expert on their history but not ever in charge.

"She Is the Darkness". Croaker, the sorceress Lady, and the Black Company are in trouble as they are diverted from their enemy to battle other evil entities. This leaves them vulnerable to the malevolent Shadowmaster Soulcatcher, Howler and the Stranglers as they set a diabolical trap to eradicate the Black Company and their sorcery practitioner allies.

These are reprints of the first half of the Glittering Stone saga. Each tale is entertaining for fans who have read previous entries (see the omnibus CHRONICLES OF THE BLACK COMPANY and BOOKS OF THE SOUTH); newcomers will find it a bit difficult to understand what is going on. Still these are enjoyable military fantasy thrillers as the Black Company tries to simply survive against overwhelming odds.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!! I absolutely do enjoy the Black Company series, and this story was no exception. Buy the paper version, because the last couple hundred pages.of the ebook stall your Nook. I have plenty of storage, everything else works fine, and the Nook has been turned off and on several times. It may be the length of the book, or just that the Activity Reader software on the Nook cannot handle the end of the book. In either case, go buy the paperbacks somewhere else and skip the ebook. They should fire their epublisher.

    My least favorite Black Company books but still amazing. Can be a little confusing at the start but that is because it is written from the perspective of someone going through some confusing episodes. Becomes clearer the further you get into the book.

    Inhaling the last breath of a dying foe is not this book's equal

    The unparalleled glory of this book will tear down the walls of your perceived reality and replace them with an unhindered consciousness of all existence, and bathe you in the passion and fire of the crucible life-birth of the universe. Wear a diaper.
