Just an avid reader. Mostly SF/Fantasy, some hobbies, paranormal, urban fantasy and lighter, fluffier things.
I am liking this book a whole lot. I was hesitant to start because sounded more grim than I normally like.
The company physician is the narrator; I'm enjoying his wording as he relays the story. It is military with combat and death. The Black Company is in the thick of it with a lot of losses. But, it's more interesting to me than grim or particularly explicit violence (so far).
Yay! Potentially a really huge new series to engross me.
This ebook downloaded, too.
I have a distinct tone for the notification where my furbabies hear it and bounce over guard the ereaders until ransomed with treats. Pavlovian response indeed, eh?
This is one I'd heard of as being iconic to grimdark fantasy. A huge series kinda intimidating to start.
But I loved the sample; just got lost in the TBR for years. Then, the last monthly free ebook from publisher TOR (Macmillan) was ... The Black Company. Not only is it shelved as military for this round of BINGO, it's also the current read for booklikes' bookclub here if anyone cares to read along.
...just in time to use it as my free space read for Serious Overload of Series' Bookshelf BINGO Round 17, free space.
Been meaning to give this series a try for a while based on fun posts on my dashboard from other readers. Sounds funny.
I'm hoping to finish this library book tonight. Real life needs to stop interrupting my reading.
I think I'm going to really enjoy this series (this is only book 2). Except for MC's so-called best friend, I like these characters and the storyline.
"A genre-defining series like The Chronicles of the Black Company can be intimidating. It might seem hard to know where to get started. There are plenty of places to begin (though we recommend book #1 or the upcoming Port of Shadows as entry points), but we’ve made it easy for you with the official chronological order!
