    Give it time...

    I didn't fall into the characters as much as with the Black Company books I was introduced to first but I highly recommend giving the plot time to grip you. Cook finds his stride a little more slowly here but the build is worth it and I became ALMOST as attached to the characters of Bragi and Haaken as I ever was to Croaker and Raven. I look forward to reading the other Dread Empire novels!

    Still a favorite

    Not as well written as the black company series, but to be expected from an earlier work. Still a favorite!

    Nice read

    Not quite as good as his Black Company series but I really liked that series a lot. Started off a little slow but built up and ended nicely. I enjoyed it.

    T. Wind

    Wind ran in, her paws softly padding on the ground. She crouched down, as if awaiting something. There was a rustling sound, a rabbit leaping out of a bush, not noticing Wind. A smile appeared on her face, her teeth glinting. Gathering her haunches, she aimed at it. The wind changed. But it was too late because Wind leaped before the rabbit could move. Under her claws, the rabbit struggled. Wind searched it, combing her claws through its fur. Sothing was found, something was hidden into Winds long fur. Killing the white rabbit off, she picked it up.

    For fans of the Black Company

    If you've read the entire Black Company (or just what you've been able to find so far) and are dying for more like it, here you go. This is a great series in many ways. The gritty grunt's perspective used in his other works is here, but this time he actually writes from the perspective of some of the larger movers and shakers of a very similar fantasy world. Sorcerers who actually have to work for their magical works, kings and generals of mighty armies who aren't born with a silver spoon in their mouth, and the best part is that nobody is a 'chosen one'. Pick this up, it's worth your time and then some.
