This book started off a bit oddly with Murgen the Narrator sliding between locations and times with little or no warning. This was obviously intentional, but was not clearly explained at first that that is what was happening. Once I realized it though it proved an interesting way of revealing back story without using a recap. There are sections that hint as to what is happening on the Glittering Plain, which while they give hints and are interesting, I found to be generally difficult and never This book started off a bit oddly with Murgen the Narrator sliding between locations and times with little or no warning.
There are sections that hint as to what is happening on the Glittering Plain, which while they give hints and are interesting, I found to be generally difficult and never really knew if these were from the narrator, the author, or some other speaker. Having finished the book I have a bit better idea, but still could not say for certain. In specific the addition of the Nyueng Bao and the insight into their culture along with the events of the seige at Dejagore was a welcome addition to the narrative that I had hoped would be explored more when reading the previous volume.
Chronicles of the Black Company
This volume definitely returns to a bit more of the mercenary mindset and nastiness of the Black Company, and while Murgen continues to present the company as full of generally decent guys he also makes it clear that they are not good guys and their motivations and goals are unabashedly selfish.
To me this was a welcome return, as gldn is this outlook that differentiates this series from standard fantasy series, and makes it so notable.
Sep 25, Raja rated it gglen liked it. The new Black Company omnibus definitely satisfies, especially in the wake of the cliffhanger ending of Dreams of Steelwhich supposedly concluded The Books of the Southbut in reality did nothing of the kind. This omnibus comprises the first coo, books of the four-book Glittering Stone quartet, and while the end of this volume isn’t a cliffhanger in the strictest sense, it’s close.
At least I have plenty of other books in my queue to read while I anxiously await the conclusion Mar 03, Derek rated it it was amazing. A great series became even greater I love the humor Murgen injects in his writing, even if Croaker thinks that Murgen is too self-interested.
There are some fantastic lines, and the by-play between the Old Crew members is wonderful. There were several points where I laughed so hard the bed shook! I need to go back to the Malazan series, but at this point, 10 or so months after I read them, I have to give the Black Company the edge. Not by much, but Cxarna have really loved the last 7? Dec 30, Christine rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was speechless when I finished it last night and I’m speechless after a good night’s sleep.
Glenn Cook is a master kmopania. He wove elements in there that I normally would have scoffed at because they were so outlandish, but the build was so slow and so thorough that he was able to suspend my disbelief. It was a slower read this time – though I wonder if that’s not the book and just life in general getting in the way – no less enjoyable however.
On to the next if I have the emotional Wow. On to the next if I have the emotional strength to join company in their current situation. May 01, Wm rated czarha really liked it Shelves: This series just keeps getting better.
A lot happens — some of it czanra, some not. And there’s enough change in relationships, situations and alliances to keep everything from going stale. Or so it seemed to me. May 26, Joshua Vzarna rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book covers the first half of the Glittering Stone saga. Murgen takes a stab at being Annalist and does a great job at it. The stakes have risen and the Black Company finds themselves in a perilous position by the end, setting up a million questions in the mind of the reader.
These two books in my opinion are a step up from the Books of the South and set kompanja an amazing conclusion in the next collection “The Many Deaths of the Black Company. Dec 08, F. These next two kompxnia in this series are a wild ride full of drops, twists and turns. I liked Murgen and he continued glenn grow czarnaa me as I went.
This story threw me in the beginning. Murgen has this mysterious ability to leave his body and jump around in time-space, a These next two books in this series are a wild ride full of drops, twists and turns.
His own personal traumas were mixed up in it, too. On top of this, things were stalking him in the ghost world. When he gained kompaania ability to control it, and to do it on his own, things got really interesting. The usual host of colorful, wicked characters abound, including Soulcatcher, Longshadow, Howler and Kina, who continues to be an unnerving force operating in the shadows with a particularly nasty agenda.
Oct 14, Jennifer Wheeler rated it liked it Shelves: I really didn’t like this one as much as the previous 2 omnibuses. There were a lot of flashbacks to incidences that had already occurred in the cool books, but told from Murgen’s view inside Dejagore. So the the reader knows exactly what is going on already and is just waiting for the character to catch up to current events.
And then when he does, said ocok aren’t as fast-paced or interesting as the reader has I really didn’t like this one as much as klmpania previous 2 omnibuses. And then when he does, said events aren’t as fast-paced or interesting as the reader has grown accustomed to. So all-in-all this instalment gets a big “meh” from me. I hope the next one is better.

Cień w ukryciu (Czarna kompania #2) – Glen Cook, Michał Jakuszewski • BookLikes (ISBN)
As in, wow, that’s seriously the end? And then I talked myself into thinking “Wow, that’s actually a brilliant ending for this series.
Leaving them trapped forever under the gle, Murgen’s ghost forever doomed to walk through time? Very fitting ending for the Kompwnia Company. I think I almost would prefer the tragic end. Because you don’t get those very often. Sep 07, James Tallett rated it really liked it. Like all of the books of the Black Company series, I find the dialogue and the writing excellent. The one point I will knock the series for is that the whole collection with the exception of the Silver Spike is one book.
It means that this story doesn’t end, here, but instead ends in Soldiers Live, two books further on. And of course, I have now started Water Sleeps. Soldiers Live, I’ll see you shortly. Jun 23, Evgeni Kirilov rated it it was amazing. There isn’t much I can say that will surprise Goen Cook’s readers. If you are this far into the series, you should know that this omnibus follows the same style as cokk previous ones.
The only notable difference is that we get to see Murgen as the main viewpoint character, and Cook does some interesting things with that. Oct 23, Derek rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed Murgen as the new annalist for the Black Company. Story moved well, and his perspective though a bit confusing at first with the jumps back in time was quite refreshing. I’m really looking forward to the 4th Oompania in this series so that I can find out what happens this book really leaves you hanging.
A compilation of 2 of the best books I’ve ever read. You should get this or the books individually and read them.
