Chronicles of The Black Company
About this Series
From Glen Cook, the father of Grimdark, comes the Chronicles of The Black Company—an epic military fantasy series following a group of hard-bitten mercenaries waging war on behalf of The Lady, who may be the very infestation of evil itself. But the reincarnation of the heroine known as The White Rose may be the company’s salvation.
“With the Black Company series Glen Cook single-handedly changed the face of fantasy—something a lot of people didn’t notice and maybe still don’t. He brought the story down to a human level, dispensing with the cliché archetypes of princes, kings, and evil sorcerers. Reading his stuff was like reading Vietnam War fiction on peyote.”—New York Times bestselling author Steven Erikson
