      People who read my rants called reviews know I love criticizing blurbs This time I will be gentle The blurb for this book has nothing to do with the book contents These two are as different from each other as a recent Harvard graduate and a prehistoric human I mean they are both homo sapience species, but this is where the similarity ends Anyway my interpretation of the plot follows Six years passed since the events of the first book The Company is still on the Lady s payroll They are still good [...]

      Buddy read with the BBB mercenaries A warning from Sarah from the future the Sarah that just finished writing this review this is quite possibly the crappiest review I ve ever written It doesn t make any sense and doesn t do the book justice that s the understatement of the century right there So prepare for a seriously uninteresting rambling fest Because I can t think straight today view spoiler I know, I know, I can t think straight most days, no need to rub it in Today is just worse than usua [...]

      Did you make it through The Black Company I feel like you deserve a merit badge if you were able to pull it off without anyone else to help you with the sticky parts It was a good book but Glen Cook doesn t do any info dumping so it is definitely a learn as you go kind of book and I needed a little help along the way.The good news is that Shadow s Linger flows much much better It was so much easier to follow because One, the chapters are shorter and so they didn t feel so jumpy Two, it is split [...]

      This review contains spoilers for the first book in the series.Way, way back, when the Domination was aborning, centuries before the foundation of the Lady s empire, the Dominator overpowered his greatest rivals and compelled them into his service He accumulated ten villains that way, soon known as the Ten Who Were Taken When the White Rose raised the world against the Dominator s wickedness, the Ten were buried with him She could destroy none of them outright Centuries of peace sapped the will [...]

      3.75 StarsI loved The Black Company Shadows Linger was still very good, but it is a different beast entirely Fans of the series should not be disappointed though Glen Cook delivers another winner and sets up the last book in the series beautifully.The book has two main story lines.In one we follow some ex Black Company members as they while away their days in Juniper and a couple of local inhabitants who are mostly up to no good.In the other we follow The Black Company on their never ending conq [...]

      3.5 stars I am amused, and wondering how everything is going to work out.

      The continuing saga of the Black Company, a group of mercenaries who will have been hired by The Lady, an undead ruler whose evil is possibly preferential to that of her trapped in his grave husband, The Dominator.Shadows Linger explores the everyday evil of human existence, through the person of Shed Marron, an innkeeper in a remote city where the Company finds itself stationed Shed is a miserable coward, scared of physical harm, poverty, and the judgment of his neighbours When he gets money, h [...]

      I believe in our side and theirs, with the good and evil decided after the fact, by those who survive Among men you seldom find the good with one standard and the shadow with another 3,5 starsNot as good as the first one, though it does keep most of the elements that made The Black Company so good The most disappointing part was that all the interesting characters from the first book the Lady, the Taken, Raven and Darling are barely present in the second They appear, of course, but they all play [...]

    10. Greg on said:

      Forget the book for a minute and look at this cover I think I have a rough idea what is going on in this picture, but it nothing like the book I don t know if I would ever read a book with this cover, fortunately the book is in a collection or omnibus what a dumb word with two other novels And the collection cover is pretty bad ass, or at least what I would picture members of the black company to look like I m not so sure about the chick, she sort of looks like descriptions of The Lady, but with [...]

      Shadows Linger was even better than the first book in The Black Company series It had all the positives of the first book and successfully replaced the slow campaign marches with some exciting intrigue I worried about the split POV s for a while, but it worked out well in the end as Maron Shed turned out to be as fascinating a character to read about as Croaker After the way this book ended I m looking forward to reading The White Rose Rating 4 stars.

    12. Choko on said:

      A buddy read with BBB and loving it 4 A different type of storytelling and a different type of story And I am talking about the good type of different, not the ooo my, this was very uncomfortable and chaotic type Actually, I think this story was easier going since we had some background and were comfortable in this world full of darkness and dissolution It was also linear and the action picked up quite a bit toward the end I couldn t put it down and have barely started cooking for Thanksgiving [...]

    13. Tammy on said:

      I m a huge fan of Glen Cook s unique writing style I enjoyed Shadows Linger than the first book which I loved The characters in this series are so realistic and I just loved spending time with the Company Marron Shed was a stand out in this book and hats off to Glen Cook for his character development The greater threats are explored, secrets revealed, The Company stumbles but doesn t falld the story moves on.

    14. Carol. on said:

      Something about Cook he just has a way of weaving a story that keeps me interested, even when I m not altogether enjoying it It can be difficult to read about desperate innkeepers, snitches needing to make a buck and a mercenary company, because none of the protagonists truly seem likeable Cook builds both action and suspense, however, and I can t help but keep going to see how it turns out Easier to follow than it s predecessor, it does still have parts that are hard to follow, especially when [...]

    15. Maggie K on said:

      This really picks up from where the first book left offThe company sees a lot variety of action as they come up against the Lady s husband, the Dominatorwho is SUPPOSED to be buried very deep.Frankly, the first book and its setting up of the characters and the world was a little confusing and hard to read, whereas I practically ate this one up100% improvement

    16. Stephen on said:

      5.5 stars The second chronicle of the Black Company I absolutely love these books My only complaint is that I wish the books were longer so that the author could provide mre detail to the incredible world he has created HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    17. Eilonwy on said:

      4 1 2 stars that may get rounded up Review to come once I figure out what to say without spoilers Short form, this book was terrific, carrying the big plot arc forward while being scary and gripping and completely absorbing And it made me cry at the end It s powerful stuff.

    18. Jake on said:

      I first heard about the Black Company novels in a thread on rpg The premise sounded interesting, and when I saw that it was at least in part used as source material for Exalted, I figured I d check it out.The Chronicles of the Black Company of which Shadows Linger is the second novel is a series of fantasy novels that follows the activities of a mercenary group called the Black Company I guess that was obvious, huh What s not so obvious is how the story line goes.Imagine reading the Lord of the [...]

      Muito, muito bom Uma hist ria intensa, cheia de reviravoltas Personagens cativantes e tens o no ar a cada p gina Cook sabe prender a aten o do leitor, com poucas descri es e foco na hist ria e nos personagens A concis o do estilo d ritmo hist ria e aqui e ali deixa escapar p rolas de sarcasmos, ironia e at uma ou outra considera o filos fica O primeiro livro da s rie achei um pouco confuso, a hist ria parece um roteiro de videogame, mas mesmo assim me cativou, por algum motivo Nesta sequ ncia, c [...]

      Shed remained panicky all afternoon Somebody might find Wally But no lawman came stamping in Soon after dark he stole away to the stable He spent the journey alternately being terrified and wondering how much Wally would bring And how much he could get for his wagon and team He hadn t factored them into his earlier calculations He ought to help Wally s family He had to It was the decent thing He was acquiring too many dependents.Then he was facing the dark gate The castle, with all its monstrous [...]

      Well, it does have a different feel than The Black Company It s a detective story, or less But that s not a bad thing It s different in terms of characters and focus, too The Company is split for most of the time in terms of location, not loyalties I did miss Goblin and One Eye s contests There s a scene in the beginning when you fear things get sour between them, but One Eye s statement towards the end is telling If that bastard Goblin got himself killed, I ll wring his neck A summary of what [...]

    22. Lanko on said:

      This one is very different from the first book.First, there are no big battles though there is a great siege No army fights In fact, the story happens entirely in a small town Probably Glen Cook took inspiration when stationed for a long time in such a place.Second, the narrative In the first book you really were thrown in the middle of things, nothing was spoon fed or detailed too much.Now here Cook cuts us some slack and some things are indeed told directly to the reader, be a bit on informati [...]

    23. Igor on said:

      The second book is excellent Writing is much better, flowy and there is no epic battles described in few sentences The story continues well, focusing on Lady s effort to stop Dominator to come to their world as well as following Black company and their interests which became quite a bit different then in the first book.For all those that found first book a bit odd, endure it as follow up is excellent On my way for the third one.
