    Shadows Linger Review

    Reviewer: Eric Fraga
    Shadows Linger Review
    Shadows Linger takes place right where The Black Company left off. After the final battle between the forces of the Empire and the White Rose Resistance, we find the Empire, and its elite force The Black Company victorious, but all is still not at peace in the world, for a malevolent evil stirs once again. The original evil, The Dominator, has started to make his move. While he has been trapped in his tomb, sealed away from the outside world, something has awoken him. He is plotting. Little is known about what he plans to do, but what is known is that the dead are going missing. Graves are being dug up, not for riches of treasure, but for the corpses within.
    Meanwhile, the Lady, dark ruler of the empire, is having trouble controlling her elite circle of generals, The Ten Who Were Taken. As they betray and sabotage each other, it is to The Black Company that she now turns to in order to achieve her goals. Interestingly enough, this new closeness to the Company has also brought her even closer to Croaker. Perhaps the Company is getting a bit too entangled.
    So what does it all mean? What is The Dominator planning? What are the Lady's new plans for the empire now that her only threat, the White Rose has been seemingly eliminated? Can hope really be destroyed? And where are Raven and the young girl known as Darling? Well you will just have to read the book to find out!
    The second part to this thrilling epic tale keeps building upon an already great thing. Cook takes a bit of a turn by telling more small scale tales about separate events happening at the same time, then he brings them all together in some of the most explosive writing I have seen on this scale. Three storylines unite to bring together an amazing climax, followed by deep intrigue and hardship. I suggest it to anyone who enjoyed the first, it is truly worth a read.
